Heroes of the Storm figures from NECA.

Some good news for Blizzard fans!

NECA will be doing figures from the Heroes of the Storm MOBA game and the first wave of figures will include..




I only know Illidan from Warcraft 3 so will be looking to pick him up. Missed out on the DC Collectibles version from World of Warcraft so this will be a nice way to pick up the Warcraft characters that I love. I was a mega WC3 fan back in the day and most of my knowledge about the Warcraft Universe were from that game.  

According to Kotaku, NECA will be looking to do the entire Heroes of the Storm lineup, and a quick look at the list of characters, I hope they do it. With other Warcraft characters like Thrall, Arthas, Sylvanas in the list, together with characters from other favourite Blizzard game, Diablo; Azmodan, Tyrael, this will be a strong line to get into.

Problem is.. NECA's video game lines doesn't give me confidence, which can be disheartening. Lines that just disappeared after a hopeful start; Assassin's Creed, Borderlands, God of War to name a few.

There's nothing wrong with their figures. In fact, I think they probably have the best 6-7 inch figures out there. However, their lines don't seem to last. After a few figures, they don't continue with the line. I understand this may not be entirely their fault however.

I'll probably wait a while to see how this line fares before I pick up the ones I like, or else I'll just have to hunt down the DC Collectibles' versions.
