Unlike some of its other series, Valve isn't going for massmarket appeal with its official DOTA 2 merchandise. Instead, it's teamed up with special effects house WETA for a range of statues and replicas that is very fancy.

Available for pre-order from WETA's online store, there are two swords, a shield (all life-size) and a statue, all priced between $249 and $299.

Those looking for something even more impressive, take a look here to see the work that went into creating the Aegis of Champions, the trophy handed out to the winners of the 2012 International.
