Valve: DOTA2 and Portal Blind Box Madness!

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!

How cute!

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.

  1. The DOTA plushies look very cute, especially the faceless void (Which I was playing as for 1 round and we lost because of it) and the Torrents look incredible, I always question why NECA & Wizkids went with this 1 version open 1 version closed type deal, rather then make that part slide in and out, but then again that’s be faulty
