Warcraft movie props are being auctioned off on May 14

If you have a few hundred dollars to burn and are eager to get World of Warcraft-esque movie props in your home, you’re in luck. Several of the props from the Warcraft movie are going to be auctioned off starting on May 14th. This includes props like the news board clearly modeled after the similar boards found in WoW cities and an entire set of horse armor. Useful if you already have a horse with near-boundless patience, less useful if you have a cat whose patience is already sorely tested.

Of course, since this is an auction you can’t just outright buy these things, and the mentioned ballparks of “a few hundred dollars” are purely based on previous similar auctions. Still, we’re fairly sure that you would turn some heads by buying a giant Alliance shield and hanging it in your place of business, so perhaps that’s exactly the way to look at this.

So that means no more Warcraft movies?

Probably, even though internationally it did well.

The problem is that, in this case, “internationally” means China. For a number of reasons* a box office dollar in the Chinese market is only worth about an eighth as much to the studio’s income as a BOD in the Western Market. When divided by eight the Chinese numbers look considerably less impressive, and in the Western market it was an outright bomb.

*In China theaters keep a much higher percentage of ticket sales compared to the US, where theaters make their real money on overpriced concessions. Also home video sales (whether disc, streaming, or televised) are practically non-existant except for bootlegs. And other smaller factors.

A few hundred dollars for a set of horse armor? Man, when Oblivion sold horse armor for like two dollars everyone flipped out!
In all seriousness, does this mean that they’ve officially given up on sequel plans? I honestly thought that subsequent movies could have been good if they had just made a few changes, but I guess at this point they’ve already lost consumer confidence.

Honestly surprised Blizzard didn’t just buy the lot (unless they already have copies).

Lots of cool detail on the props, it’s a shame the film ended up the way it did and for a year after I had really hoped that somehow they’d justify a sequel, but that ship has now sailed for sure.

Dang that detail is astoundingly awesome. Shame that there probably won’t be further movies because the story doesn’t really pick up until Warcraft 2 imo. Would be awesome to see a movie focusing on that, though it’d probably need to be a series of movies.

I think the director said if he did another it would be based off Warcraft 2.

A chinese millionaire is probably going to buy it all and stash it in the attic… together with a couple european football teams and some monument a random capital short on cash traded under the counter for fresh money :P

Why when they can just buy it all and make a movie with it. It’s not like they don’t already do that with the games themselves, except they’re not buying anything, just ripping it off.

Not sure if those weapons real size or toys. We need banana for scale
