Let’s Talk About The 700kg Orc Shaman In The Room

Lording over the Mega Bloks booth at BlizzCon 2011, Doomhammer held high, World of Warcraft’s Thrall would have been much more impressive in block form if it wasn’t for the long line of people waiting to get their picture taken with him. He’s the saviour of two worlds, people!

Mega Bloks ran a contest during BlizzCon in which folks could Twitter pictures of themselves with Mega Thrall for a chance to win concept sketches of the mini Thrall that came in the show’s swag bag this year. This reduced Azeroth’s greatest Orc to a touristy prop, somewhat diminishing his majesty.

He’s still rather impressive. The company reps wouldn’t tell me how many pieces he was made up of (they might hold a contest later), but they loved mentioning how much he weighed, which had me imagining a small horde of people in black Mega Bloks polo shirts carrying him into a truck on their backs, finally giving him the respect he deserves.
