The Daily Grind: Would you buy toys based on your favorite MMO?

I’m not going to lie – I want a goblin playset from Final Fantasy XIV. They’ve got so many fun accessories to play with, what with all the tanks and vangobs and so forth. It seems like the sort of thing that would be endless fiddly fun. And I can’t be the only one, as those little World of Warcraft action figures and so forth keep getting made.

Maybe you’re not one for having physical objects cluttering up your desk, and maybe you really hate when you have a new statue or toy inside of a collector’s edition that forces you to find somewhere to put things. But perhaps the only thing keeping you from spending a few hundred dollars on your favorite game’s toys is that they don’t exist. So if your game of choice had toys, would you buy them? And if they do exist, have you bought any in the past?

Every morning, the Massively Overpowered writers team up with mascot Mo to ask MMORPG players pointed questions about the massively multiplayer online roleplaying genre. Grab a mug of your preferred beverage and take a stab at answering the question posed in today’s Daily Grind!

I thought the whole point of video games was to be the ultimate toy. Not quite seeing the point of buying a toy based off of a much much better toy. Isn’t that sort of like buying a Corvette and then buying a tiny plastic Corvette?

I believe I was referring to their potential, not their actual benefit. But to be fair, this is unlikely the only reason and even a small reason if that. To which the driving force of the markup is more likely IP brand recognition and the “must have” fandom.

WildStar is made for merch. So much cute, so colorful.
Merch is one of the major profit centers for other forms of entertainment. Why are MMOs behind the curve?
