Today I look at the third and final figure from wave 3 of the Heroes of the Storm figures by NECA Toys. Over the last few days, I’ve shared photos and reviews for Starcraft’s Jim Raynor and Warcraft’s Thrall. Today I have Sylvanas from World of Warcraft. The Undead Elven Ranger is a leader of the Forsaken faction of the undead. The figure includes a bow, arrows and a magical arrow. She also includes a fabric cape. Sylvanas stands a little under 7″ tall and is available in stores now. Toyark sponsor Dorkside Toys sent along the figure. Read on for photos and my review.

Heroes of the Storm is Blizzard Entertainment’s massively popular multiplayer online battle arena video game (aka MOBA) for PC and Mac. It brings together heroes and villains from numerous Blizzard franchises such as Warcraft, Diablo and Starcraft. NECA has produced multiple figures based on their appearance in the game. Earlier, I shared a photo shoot and review for the Jim Raynor Figure. Today I take a look at the second figure in NECA’s final assortment of Heroes of the Storm action figures; Thrall from the Warcraft game series. The 7″ scale Warchief of the Horde includes a hammer. Toyark sponsor Entertainment Earth provided us with the figure. After the jump check out the photos and my thoughts on Thrall.
The final wave of Heroes of the Storm figures by NECA can be found in stores now. The assortment includes Jim Raynor from Starscraft, Sylvanas from World of Warcraft and Thrall from Warcraft. As each of the three figures is very different in style, I’ll be taking a look at each of them individually. I’m kicking things off with the Jim Raynor 7″ Scale Figure. Originally part of the Starscraft game franchise, Raynor is a basic attack Assassin Hero in Heroes of the Storm, excelling at ranged attacks. The figure includes the C-14 Impaler Gauss Rifle. Toyark sponsor Dorkside Toys has provided us with the figure. You can read on for my thoughts as well as a full gallery.

Welcome to gallery 499! Tomorrow we hit 500 and hope you will tune in to check it out. The Heroes of the Storm toy line by NECA is a pretty big hit so far. They have released some really fantastic characters from the Blizzard Entertainment universe so far. None more popular than Tyrael and Arthas I’d say. It’s not surprising as the fan bases for both World of Warcraft and Diablo 3 are massive. While I skipped wave 1, I couldn’t pass up the fantastic choices for Wave 2. Toyark sponsor Entertainment Earth sent along the Heroes of the Storm Stitches Deluxe Figure for us to review. I also managed to finally find both Arthas and Tyrael to include in the photo shoot. After the jump, find my full review for Stitches as well as over 55 high resolution images.
