Lining up with this BlizzCon, Blizzard is offering up the previously-announced Helm of Domination collectible, which is on sale now at Blizzard Gear Store while supplies last. We got to take a closer look at it, and it's very spikey.

Blizzard sent us the collectible, and the helmet may not be big enough to fit on your own head, but this World of Warcraft 30th anniversary replica is highly-detailed and feels pretty sturdy. Primarily made of polyresin (88%, Plastic: 6%, and Alloy: 6%), the collectible comes in at nearly 17-inches tall--when placed on the stand. However, this helmet will cost you a pretty penny--$300 to be exact. Check out some images of it below.

The stand for the helmet keeps it in place and upright. There is a tremendous amount of detail within the helmet, including the inscription around the gem between the eyes. It's surprising how well this helmet translates into a collectible. And no, it's not full scale, but this helmet is already very large, and scaling it up any more would make a challenge to put on a shelf--because you wouldn't have the room.

World of Warcraft is filled with incredible amounts of lore and backstory, but this is one of the more recognizable items from that world. "Forged according to the Jailer's will, the Helm of Domination was to be the vessel of Death's influence on Azeroth," reads the official description for the item. "The Nathrezim imprisoned the spirit of the orc chieftain Ner'zhul within the helm, granting him command over a vast army of undead Scourge. The fallen Prince Arthas Menethil freed the Helm from the Frozen Throne, donning it to take up the mantle of the Lich King."
