Published

Warcraft

If you are at Comic-Con and have the time, make sure you stop by Legendary’s booth (#3920) to check out all the sights and sounds they have cooking there. Believe you me, there’s A LOT to take in. Especially their Warcraft display, which featured… well… you’ll see. And you’ll love it!

Warcraft director Duncan Jones kicked off SDCC by personally unveiling a life-sized Orgrim that brings the world of the fantasy phenomenon Warcraft to life. Strikingly detailed, this Horde warrior and his iconic Doomhammer weapon were both crafted by the artists at WETA Workshop. However, Orgrim is only one half of the exhibit – the WETA booth contains a life-sized statue of the Alliance’s King Llane for a unique dual-booth experience.

Check them both out below.
