Sideshow Collectibles showcased the fully-painted Diablo III Overthrown Diorama at the San Diego Comic Con 2009. It was displayed at booth # 1929 on Podium 4. It is absolutely awesome. I can see a lot of hardcore fans with the wide-pockets investing their hard-sweat cash to collect this breath-taking sculpture. I simply hope they create a series of them for each of the five Diablo III classes.
The San Diego Comic Con 2009 runs through Thursday, July 22 to Sunday, July 26. You will find Sideshow Collectibles at Booth # 1929. I am somewhat close with the Sideshow Collectibles representatives and keep in contact a few times throughout the year. During a mini-Q&A I had with Sideshow Collectibles CEO Greg Anzalone and the Production Manager Brant Bridges, the latter said:
Brant: Yes, we are hoping to do more Blizzard products. Nothing in the immediate future, but we do have some ambitions.
A few weeks ago, when I asked Sideshow Collectibles if they were to unveil a new Diorama this year at the San Diego Comic Con, I got a very interesting response that might or not mean something is brewing in the house of ideas. (expensive ideas by the way, lol)
The answer was: “We can
It is AMAZING !!! The Diablo III fans have gone insane and fell in love of the fully-painted Diablo III OVERTHROWN Statue. The Limited Edition which includes the helmet has been surprisingly SOLD OUT across the board. It’s been only four days since it was unveiled. This reminds me how fast BlizzCon tickets sold out these past two years. There are very passionate fans out there, I tell ya.
The question is, will there be enough Overthrown Regular Edition to meet the demand? Rush in and get one if you were hesitating dude, because they are going faster than hot bread in the morning on a busy bakery. They are sweet !

Within the world of Sanctuary in the Kingdom of Khanduras, barbarians are an ancient class of legendary warriors. Barbarians are known for their immense size, relentless fury and two-weapon fighting techniques and dwell upon their sacred Mount Arreat. Though once misunderstood to be simple and aggressive invaders, they are a noble, proud people, upholding great tradition – protecting Mount Arreat and the mysterious artifact it holds.
Sideshow Collectibles and Blizzard Entertainment are proud to introduce the Diablo III Collectible series with this epic first release. The Barbarian Statue depicts the warrior class in fine form, wielding dual-axes in the heat of battle. Each piece is hand-cast in high quality polystone, individually finished and hand-painted to exacting standards, complete with individually assigned edition numbers on the bottom side of the base. Don’t miss this opportunity to begin your Diablo III collection with the limited edition Barbarian Statue.

Many Blizzard fans attended the 2009 New York Comic Con for the opportunity to meet the thundergod Chris Metzen (Senior VP of Creative Development) and Micky Neilson (Senior Writer & Voice Director) during the Simon & Schuster book signing session.
There were a lot of happy fans handing over their copies of World of Warcraft: Night of the Dragon, the Comic Book Vol. 1 hardcover, even the Wrath of the Lich King Collector’s Edition Art Book. I remember one of the fans brought the wall-mounting accessory of the Frostmourne sword replica to be signed. It was a fun experience to both Alliance and Horde players; and the developers were quite satisfied and passionate about the fans’ reactions.
Blizzplanet and WorldofWar.net was there to interview both Blizzard developers, and to record most of the book signing session. Below you can watch all three videos.
Blizzard has announced the Echoes of War soundtracks are now available on iTunes store allowing you to purchase individual tracks or the whole album.
