The Gates of Orgrimmar now total 38 parts making up this single iconic landmark. In all, there are over 600 assembled parts making up just one Vault. A total of 65 steel injection molds will be tooled up. No small feat, and all coming with an enormous cost impact, essential to a collectible of this caliber and size, weighing in at over 16 lbs.
The gluing jigs and the assembly process of 600+ pieces are just as critical and time consuming. And, while some toys and games are clocked in mere minutes to assemble – from start to finish – the factory has timed molding, assembly, and painting at just over 8 hours of labor per Vault. Another crucial process adding to the product’s complexity and cost.
Just as beautiful as the Himalayas, our ultimate goal is to make a visually stunning hybrid, combining this centuries-old gameplay into a high-end collectible.
