Blizzplanet correspondent David Frazier interviewed Micky Neilson at the 2013 San Diego Comic Con on Friday, July 19th to forward a combination of SOL community and Blizzplanet questions about licensed products revealed at the Blizzard Licensing Panel, and about products that weren’t mentioned at the panel.

SDCC 2013 – Sideshow Collectibles Teases StarCraft II Sixth Scale Figures

Written by Medievaldragon on . Posted in Blizzard Products News, SDCC 2013, StarCraft 2 News

Barely less than 48 hours away from the Blizzard Licensing Panel, Sideshow Collectibles has dropped a teaser for StarCraft II fans. The image shows the unpainted head of at least three different StarCraft II Sixth Scale action figures.

One is Tychus Findlay. The hair style of one of them looks like Jim Raynor. A third head reminds me of Emperor Valerian Mengsk.

Wish to find out more? Blizzplanet will have video of the Blizzard Licensing Panel on Thursday sometime around 9pm EDT / 5pm PDT. The video will be embed at the following page.

Sons of the Storm July 2013 Update – StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm Concept Art & DC Comics StarCraft Graphic Novel

Written by Medievaldragon on . Posted in Blizzard Products News, StarCraft 2 News, World of Warcraft News

The Blizzard Entertainment “Sons of the Storm” artists website has been updated with delicious StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm artwork. All three races get spotlight.

Among the artworks I see a concept art of the head of different Primal zerg and the flora of planet Zerus. Some icy scenes from planet Kaldir. Artwork shown in the Project Blackstone website such as the War Pigs Warhound. Some have been shown in the StarCraft II Short Stories webpage.

However, there are some never seen before — like the Dehaka concept.

As usual, the Sons of the Storm website is also showing artwork of upcoming licensed products such as the front cover of Diablo III: Book of Tyrael and the World of Warcraft: Vol’jin: Shadows of the Horde.

As I browsed through the 25 images, and reached the last one — my jaw dropped. Sharp-eye fans might remember this piece of artwork. This is the front cover of the DC Comics StarCraft Graphic Novel revealed by Hank Kanalz on July 2011 at San Diego Comic Con. Check out the 2011 SDCC coverage page to learn more.

The 120-page graphic novel is untitled still 2 years forward, but the writer was Simon Furman with art by Wei Wang. DC Comics hasn’t revealed details about the status of the StarCraft graphic novel since the SDCC 2011. Hopefully, the public view of this concept art heralds new details this upcoming SDCC 2013.

Make sure to watch Blizzplanet’s video of the Blizzard Licensed Panel (SDCC 2013) this upcoming Thursday, July 18th. Visit the Sons of the Storm website to view the recently added 25 images.
