Unfortunately, I see myself getting outbid on literally everything. Oh well, I'm going to try anyway!
I reeeeeeeeeeally want to buy one of the crates to use as a coffee table, but the shipping fees would be astronomical :(
I don't remember any kultirans, elves or Lordaeron stuff happening in the first film and the fact that they have elven and kultiran stuff to sell, also flags of Lordaeron, made me think that, perhaps, they even thought of doing another film, but the not very good acceptance of the first one made them think again. That's kinda sad. I don't think the film was very good, but I was willing to see Arthas on screen. Perhaps, if Blizzard put their money on a TV series, like Dire Devil or Arrow, it would be better. It's easier to cover all the complexity of Warcraft in series than in a film.
Wonder how much wowhead got paid to advertise this.
Can I use WoW Tokens?
Those are awesome, to bad this wasn't a giveaway for these items. Still cool, loove the troll book great beauty all of it.
*casual throws around $5,000 for a suit of armor* Jeez, people sure want those weapons/armor..
Caveat Emptor! Just a FYI for those players/fans thinking about putting in a bid. If your only experience with auctions is eBay, most major AHs charge a buyer's premium (also called "the juice") in the form of a percentage of the winning bid. It's how the AH makes its money (and sometimes even charges a small percentage of the winning bid to the consignor).Most AHs I've used charge anywhere between 15% - 20% (at the high end). The buyer's premium for this sale of Warcraft props is 23%! That's nuts. So whatever your winning bid is, add 23% to it. Then you have to factor in shipping...I was eyeing one of the Alliance shields. They're hanging around $200 now but will surely go up over the next 8 days. Let's be conservative and say you pick one up for $300. The juice is $69 and the cheapest shipping quote I could get (I live in N. Carolina) was $100. So before all is said and done, my shield with a winning bid of $300 is going to cost me $469. If you live in Cali, tack on another roughly 10% in sales tax ($513.55 final cost on your base winning bid of $300).Don't get me wrong...this stuff is amazing and if I didn't think my wife would leave me, I'd decorate the entire house with these props : ) Just want to help those that are (or are planning on) bidding to know what they're getting in to. Good luck to all!
The other sad thing about urethane foam and most plastics is that they do not age well unless you take extra special care of them.Outside of the metal, cloth and leather the rest is just not worth it except for bragging in the short term and you have a whole lot of cash to burn.Outside of being certified props used in a film it is cheaper to have these made locally by a trusted artisan. especially the sheilds and banners.
