Okay, so the Blizzard store has plushy murlocs, which I just discovered today (sometimes, even I miss things). In one of wow.com’s articles, they wrote about how Tom Chilton hinted about new plushies & in-game pets could be available in the future. In the future, they could also come as package deals where you’d get both the plushie AND the pet.
The idea of more wow-related plushies got me thinking.
For a long time, I’ve wanted a plushie Moonkin. Plushie druid forms of all types (bears, cats, moonkin, maybe even trees!) could be very popular items if Blizzard decided to market them. However, it might be hard to have mini druids as in-game pets. You could, however, do the moonkin as an “owlbeast” and tame an “owlbeast” in-game pet (ie. different color pallet than the current forms). I would find that an acceptable compromise. Then again, they already have one mini-treeform pet in game already, so they have already set this precedent (mostly because three form has the same model as Darnassus protector trees, just in a different color).
What would you want as a plushie & an in-game pet? It doesn’t have to be druid-related. I just thought it would be fun to think about possible ideas…
