Signed, Numbered, Limited-Edition Steins Now Available To General Public (link)

SAN DIEGO, CA (April 23, 2010) Taverncraft, a subsidiary of 3 Point Entertainment LLC, today announced it has begun shipping the latest additions to their celebrated line-up of steins based on Blizzard Entertainment’s massively multiplayer online role-playing game World of Warcraft®. The new Blood of the Horde and Alliance United Legendary Collection Steins are being released only as numbered, limited-edition collectibles signed by their artist. These Legendary Collection steins will be limited to only 999 per design, and retail for $189.99 each plus shipping/handling. Ordering information is available at wowsteins.com .

“Last year our first signed and numbered stein the Rise of the Lich King Legendary Collection Stein sold out almost immediately after we announced its availability,” said 3 Point Entertainment President Jerry Bennington.
³Since that time we’ve been working with Blizzard Entertainment to determine our next release in this popular stein series. We all agreed that Blood of the Horde and Alliance United were the perfect follow-ups for World of Warcraft players.”

So, what makes these exquisite steins Legendary? Along with the artist signature, each handcrafted, fine-grain stoneware stein stands over 10″ tall and features a sculpted, solid pewter lid richly plated in 18K gold. The handle and base are also hand-painted with premium gold accents. Each Legendary stein is packaged in a collectible gift box along with a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.

Additional information about the Blood of the Horde Legendary Collection Stein and the Alliance United Legendary Collection Stein, along with details about Taverncraft’s line-up of World of Warcraft Epic Collection steins, is available at wowsteins.com.

Shared Topic This Week

Each week on BlogAzeroth a new topic is posted for general blogging. We encourage our listeners to post about that topic on their own blog and then post a link to it in the forum.

Shared Topic: suggested by Anea from Oh look, an alt! wondered if the satisfaction that comes from receiving comments (or the fear of receiving negative comments) hinders our ability to express ourselves to our full intent and proposed, as a Shared Topic, would no comments make us better bloggers?

Next week…

Next week, we’ll see :D .
