I’ve spent a good part of the weekend into this week watching DOTA2’s International Tournament. I can understand that some people may not be into watching teams of 20+ year-olds play video games, but I find the broadcasting and production enjoyable. However, I am not here to preach the excitement of e-sports. No, instead I am here to tell you about some fun merchandise you can grab from this year’s Tournament International 3!
The reason I found out about these is because I’m a huge DOTA fan, so I heard that “The Secret Shoppe” (aka Valve’s merchandise store at the tournament) was selling some swag. The ones that stuck out most to me are the blind boxed micro-plush DOTA2 characters!
Now that you have seen these cute plushes you can go grab them over at Valve’s online store! Not only do you get a random plush of some of the cooler characters in DOTA2, but they also come with a code to unlock some sweet gear in-game. You have a chance at opening a Faceless Void, Earthshaker, Tidehunter, Ursa, Death’s Prophet, or five other random heroes. Each figure costs $10 plus shipping, but if you have no interest in the codes you can more than likely pawn them off the make up for some of that cost.
The blind-boxed mini Sentry Turrets by NECA/Wizkids are back for a second series! The Valve store has both single boxes and a case of twelve on sale now. I was a huge fan of the first series of Portal 2 Sentry Turret series and glad they are back with a second wave. Check out the possible sentries you can get this time:
The plain white turret returns for this wave, along with some chases.
