Over the years, I have been messaged by fans who reach out to me to say thanks and to keep up the good work. Especially, the Blizzard Licensed Products coverage. I have covered several eBay listings from time to time, and they have gotten popular. I’m adding a new section named Blizzarre Auctions to showcase some of the best picks of the week.
I was surprised to find a now rare collection of Tokyopop Warcraft Manga Lot in auction. Note: The Death Knight book has a tear in one of the first pages.
Tokyopop Warcraft Manga Collection
This lot contains 11 manga books consisting of the following items:
- World of Warcraft Legends Vol. 1-5
- Warcraft: The Sunwell Trilogy – DragonHunt
- Warcraft: The Sunwell Trilogy – Ghostlands
- World of Warcraft: Mage
- World of Warcraft: Shaman
- World of Warcraft: Death Knight
2002 Blizzard-Employee World of Warcraft L-Silk Shirt
The really bizarre item in auction right now is the 2002 World of Warcraft Blizzard Employee L-Silk Shirt with a whooping $429 [Buy it Now] price tag.
The bottom of the shirt reads Blizzard Entertainment and also has the artist’s signature. Justin Thavirat was a World of Warcraft (2004) lead artist and credited as an artist in StarCraft (1998), Diablo (1996), and Warcraft II: Tides of Darkness (1995) and their collective expansions. Justin also got a special thanks credit in the South Park (TV Series) Episode: Make Love, Not Warcraft (2006).
Now, I don’t know if this shirt — at that price tag — should be worn. I’d treat it as a collectible piece of art. Make sure to frame it.
