What do I know about World of Warcraft characters? Nada, not a thing. I don't play the game and am not really into much of the video games stuff but what I do appreciate are collectible figures produced in 1/6th scale because most of these 12-inch limited edition figures tend to come with pretty amazing detail and cool accessories. Sometimes they are so well done that they become works of art, to me at least and I appreciate them as such :)
A new company called OriginalEffect (OE) will be releasing this unlicenced World of Warcraft Forsaken Rogue figure consisting of a 12-inch base body (full-height approximately 28cm), 1/6th scale armor and weapons for about USD$185 (Retail price: 569RMB). It certainly looks mighty interesting.
According to www.wowwiki.com, the Forsaken are a race and faction of undead who broke away from the Scourge and took control of much of the kingdom of Lordaeron, destroyed during the Third War by the death knight Arthas. They are currently allied with the Horde. The Forsaken are led by their Banshee Queen, Sylvanas Windrunner, the former Ranger-General of Quel'Thalas. Their capital is the Undercity, in the royal catacombs beneath the ruins of the City of Lordaeron.
Like I said, I don't know much about the World of Warcraft but I do like what I see :)
The whole armor is pretty nifty and makes this character look bada$$
The Forsaken are humanoids transformed into the undead, with all the powers associated with the Scourge. They serve the Banshee Queen, Sylvanas, looking to her as their savior for delivering them from the Lich King's mental dominance.
All members of the Forsaken race are either humans or of elven descent (high elves and half-elves). However they also control a few abominations as well.

This OE WOW 12-inch figure certainly looks the part of an undead humanoid creature
From most of the pictures I see, this 1/6th figure doesn't seem to be able to stand on its own without support i.e. a figure display stand and that's not good for me personally, as I much prefer my figures to be free standing as it adds a little bit more realism to the pose

As the Forsaken are undead, that makes it impossible for them to reproduce via biological means. To this extent, the Banshee Queen has employed the val'kyr after the death of their Lich King, who ressurect enemies who fall in battle to serve the Dark Lady. This makes them different from the first Forsaken, who died by the plague during the Third War or by the Scourge, while these new Forsaken have been risen by the leader of the Forsaken to bolster their numbers.
