MEGA Brands Inc.
, maker of MEGA Bloks
, has signed a deal with Blizzard Entertainment
to bring us official World of Warcraft
and StarCraft II
Mega Bloks. Set to debut in the summer of 2012, the constructions sets will be based on locations, characters and vehicles from the ridiculously popular MMO and StarCraft II's
Terran (for those not in the know: human) campaign, Wings of Liberty
. From Vic Bertrand
, Chief Innovation Officer of MEGA Brands:
“We’re proud and thrilled to enter into a partnership with Blizzard Entertainment, the world leader in creating epic online game franchises.
The depth of content in World of Warcraft and StarCraft will fuel years of fun, collectible products for gamers and collectors.”
There are not yet pictures of pieces from the sets, but MEGA Bloks handles other franchise sets, such as the Halo
construction set, and aside from am overly flashy webpage, that set looks pretty decent, so fans of both non-Minecraft
blocky construction and Blizzard franchises with "craft" in the title need not worry about poor product quality. As for which Blizzard franchises should've gotten the MEGA Bloks treatment first, we're happy for the -craft titles, but we all know Lost Vikings would've been ideal.
