Wolfrider Statue Lands On Blizzard Entertainment Campus

Recently, Blizzard Entertainment [finally] installed the massive bronze wolfrider statue at the center of the new headquarters in Irvine, California. The replicas were given to Blizzard employees a couple of years ago, and a very few were seen on eBay for auction. The OCRegister Blizzard Blog has eight exclusive photos showing the installation of the 12-feet tall statue.

This statue was developed by WETA Workshops, a New Zeland-based film special-effects company that has worked with Stephe Spielberg and Peter Jackson and have been involved in films such as Lord of the Rings, King Kong, I, Robot and X-Men 3—to name a few. Personally, I have a feeling WETA Workshops is knee-deep in the development of the World of Warcraft film. But that’s something that hasn’t been confirmed.
