People are beginning to realize that these pieces are not only purchased for their ever-increasing intrinsic value, but for their aesthetic beauty as well
Conyers, GA (PRWEB) December 7, 2009
Atlanta Cutlery Corp. (ACC) & Museum Replicas Ltd. (MRL) announced today the debut of the companies' first wave of high-end collectibles based on Blizzard Entertainment's massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG), World of Warcraft®. The wave includes products based on the game's Horde and Alliance factions, along with a replica of the iconic Frostmourne®, the deadly runeblade featured first in Blizzard Entertainment's Warcraft® III: Reign of Chaos® and most recently in World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King®. ACC & MRL are now taking orders for the collectibles throughout North America and Europe.
Museum Replicas will develop a range of prop collectibles and specialty products including high-end clothing and costumes, weapons, armor and other props, all inspired by the characters and themes from Blizzard Entertainment's popular MMORPG. The first items include life-size battle flags, wearable tabards and a full-size latex version of Frostmourne suitable for live-action role-playing.
Each collectible has been meticulously designed with input from the game's creators to ensure it accurately represents its in-game counterpart. As gaming audiences have become more sophisticated in their playing tastes, so have the collectors of these higher end collectibles. "People are beginning to realize that these pieces are not only purchased for their ever-increasing intrinsic value, but for their aesthetic beauty as well," says Robin Chaudhuri, Director of Licensing at MRL.
