There was a recent thread about trying to obtain the 3D models of WD dragons for personal use by 3D printers. I had a brief discussion in that thread about the possibility of official War Dragons models that could be sold in the online store, and that seemed to generate a little bit of interest. I wanted to see if there was anyone else who would be interested in discussing that kind of thing, and, by extension, other forms of potential WD merch.
Let’s be honest: the online WD store has not been updated in a very long time. As of my last visit, there were only a handful of T-shirts, some posters, and cases for devices that I suspect are probably obsolete now. Obviously, the main focus of WD’s business is on in-game purchases, but I feel that there are a lot of missed opportunities for real-world merchandise. If there is one thing that everyone who plays War Dragons can agree on, it’s that the dragons look amazing. As a figurine collector in real life, I would absolutely love to be able to pick up models of a few of my favorites for my own displays. Even if you’re not interested in that kind of thing, you may be able to think of other WD related items that you might enjoy having. More shirt designs, keychains or pins, plushies, etc. Some of these things exist as exclusive swag for contests or events like Summit, but it would be awesome to have more available for all to buy in the official store.
@PGGalileo, when you have a moment, would you mind asking whomever it may concern if there have been any discussions of anything of this sort? And if not, perhaps consider starting one? Please and thank you!
And just for fun, I’ve created a little poll for everyone to vote for what kind of merch you might be interested in seeing. I’m just curious about what the community wants from this area… if indeed it wants anything. If not, this will be a very short thread. But I am going to be optimistic for the moment.
- Figurines [my pet idea is sort of like a D&D kind of miniature]
- New T-shirt designs [look at all the art assets we already have, these could practically make themselves]
- Keychains, pins, or other small accessories [insert relevant qualifier here]
- Plushies [come on, you know you want a huggable Chunk]
- Coffee mugs [for those long nights poring over breeding guides… and breakfast]
- Other [feel free to make suggestions in the thread!]
- I’m not interested in physical WD merchandise
- I just want to see the results
