Toy Fair 2016: JAKKS Warcraft Figures and Roleplay Weapons

BATTLE!! Seems to be a reoccurring theme in most movie toy lines these days! Even if you aren't a big gamer, it should be obvious a movie called WARCRAFT is going to feature dudes in armor smacking each other around with giant medievely weapons. Based on the mega popular video game franchise (aka eater of lives), Warcraft does indeed feature dudes in armor, but also massive orcs with battle axes and such, so this cast is diverse! Here's a little movie background...

The peaceful realm of Azeroth stands on the brink of war as its civilization faces a fearsome race of invaders; Orc Warriors fleeing their dying home to colonize another. As a portal opens to connect the two worlds, one army faces destruction and the other faces extinction. From opposing sides, two heroes are set on a collision course that will decide the fate of their family, their people and their home. So begins a spectacular saga of power and sacrifice in which war has many faces, and everyone fights for something.

JAKKS handles the heavy lifting, bringing Warcraft action figures in an array of scales to retail this Spring alongside roleplay weapons and the inevitable BIG figures! Let's take a look at what's on tap...

Action figures! Let's start with the 2.5 inch figure line...


And 6 inch action figures...


...and the MASSIVE 18 inch Durotan! 
(going to need this one as a giant for my psychotic medieval figure collection. It shall be miiiine.)

Roleplay items include the Axe of Durotan and DOOMHAMMER!

Now....I know what you're thinking. WHERE'S THE PLUSH??!! The answer is...we're not sure...but if we come across an extra squeezable Durotan and a giant smushy Doomhammer you can bop your children on the head with, just to hear it shout FOR THE HORDE!! Damn..someone needs to make that.
