I don't do/have anything WoW related, besides playing the actual game.None of it sounds that interesting to me honestly. The miniature sculptures just seem like a waste of money to me, and aren't that appealing. I don't really like the look of the WoW clothing out there, and I was never that big on playing board games overall, same goes for card games.That stuff just isn't for me. I prefer to keep WoW on my computer and play it there.
I would play and buy all of those if I had the money :(
I'm an avid lore-nut when it comes to the warcraft series, so it surprises no one who knows me that i own most (all but 1 or 2...) of the warcraft books, excluding the rpg books and the like. Although that can be blamed on the lack of availability where i am.I also have to admit that I do own a Bloodsail Buccaneers T-Shirt :) Its wow, but subtle enough that someone who doesnt know wow probably wouldnt recognise it.I'd probably get the miniatures just to have them, i find such things interesting, although that's a bit more money to spare than i have right now, so no dice.

I own a For the Horde J!nx shirt, the Warcraft Archives book, and a deck of the card game which I have never played.
I have made a point of keeping up to date with the comics as the story, writing and art have been exceptional so far.
I have a bit of WoW swag, but the majority of it came in the form of gifts from friends that share my nerdiness.I was all over the TCG when it first came out. I don't actually play, but I love the artwork on the cards and wanted in game pets. Unfortunately, the sheer amount of cards they kept pumping out was just too overwhelming for me and I gave up.I've read the first three novels, and the Sunwell Trilogy graphic novels. I just got the Cinematic Art of World of Warcraft (plus have the collector's editions of TBC and WotLK, and the art books that come with those). I have a huge signed poster (that I love!) and some silly t-shirt that I got for Christmas. I think that's everything...
Of the things that were mentioned, I think the comics and personal sculptures are the only good things to come out of WoW in RL. I don't think the t-shirts are cool at all, I'd much rather play Magic: The Gathering than a cheap remake, and the board game I played is very imbalanced and takes many hours to play. I bet that most of the TCG revenue comes from people trying to get loot cards (and thus may have picked up 'playing the game' as a side-effect/excuse).I will probably never buy any WoW-related swag. I am, however, happy to join in on stuff like the board game or TCG when invited, or win a sculpture of my character for free, or read the free web comics that are around, etc.In short, I will not pay for these things that are rather useless and mostly consists of expensive imitations.
That was a low blow, now I want a custom avatar of my character. Anyways, I got myself a Broll Bearmantle figure from a friend during my birthday. Not a fan of the figures, would like to get my hands on the comics though.
I dont know nothing about tshirts on swagdog but these from www.jinx.com R just great! Im waiting for my payday to get few of them:) Apart from that U should really try warcraft miniatures game. Its amazing to play with your friends even if someone could say that figures themselves R not painted good enough. Well, IMHO they are done well. I wouldnt buy any of them if I have to put effort to do them myself (dont have a skill simply speaking:))All in all im happy blizzard and others are trying to get extra money from it- Warcraft universe has got quite big role-play potential, why should we not use it?
I read the Warcraft books mainly... just to get more into the games and learn the story behind everything... I posted about it here. Check out the chart I made of the order in which to read the books, it will help you along!http://www.wowhead.com/?forums&topic=70648
