Sadly, This StarCraft Baneling Plushie Doesn't Explode

Sadly, This StarCraft Baneling Plushie Doesn't Explode

image

You can cuddle this oddly adorable fan-made Baneling plushie and it won't blow up in your face.

I'm not quite sure what it is about StarCraft II's Baneling. It's slimy, pustulent and green, filled with noxious and explosive acidic juices. It will waddle (or roll) up to your base, burst in a suicidal blast and melt your face off.

And it's somehow adorable. What the hell?

This fan-made Baneling plushie seen over on Etsy perfectly captures the bizarre cuteness of the Baneling, only it's more huggable than it is lethal. Sadly, this was a one-of-a-kind item that has since sold out, but perhaps the creator could be convinced to make more with enough interest?

Or perhaps Blizzard could take a hint and start selling these officially. That'd be great, too.

I just kind of want to ... take it and roll it down a hill or something.

(Etsy - thanks, Alai!)

Surely if he made more he would get sued for copyright or some bullshit like that.

So I doubt he'll make anymore.

But yes they are cool.

*hugs it* I want one!

I think I'll hold out for the Ultralisk plushie.

Saw this a while back, it takes the gal a whole day to make one apparently, that's dedication for you.

Do want.

I wouldn't put it past Blizzard to commission them in some form.

D'awwwwwww.

Awwww! I wanty one =D

...I want a Carrier Plushie~

It'd have to be one of those baby Ultralisks, those things are insanely cute

I would get my girlfriend one so she can D'AWW and wonder just what in the heck it is! xD!!

I am going to buy a lot of them and recreate the scene of one of my previous starcraft games. I lost hard.

Optimus Hagrid:

Oh god anything but that.

Dammit! First it was a plushie Reaver...

Oh mah gawd do want

If it makes cute little growly sounds when you squeeze it, I'm ordering ten.

Truth be told, I want one, too.

Anyone watching? No? Good...
...D'awwwwww

Well if they can make a boomer plushie and sell them like crazy this ought to set off a storm of starcraft plusies. Personally I'd like to see some terran plushies mainly marines and tanks.

How about some protoss plushies then? A soft and cuddly immortal? A Dark Templar to sleep with? How about a talking Zealot? (That could actually get annoying after a while. You can only stand to hear "MY LIFE FOR AIUR" some many times)

Ya know, with how much it is clear that GW loves money you would think that we would have a whole range of Space Marine and 'Nid plushies out by now. A Ork plushie would be soo adorable!

Anyway, I am gonna hold out for a Grunty the murloc marine plush.

D'awwwwww! I must have it! And a Companion Cube plushie!

D'awwwwwwww!

I want a Headcrab Plushie!

This makes me feel so happeeee!

Eee!

:)

I'd buy one and give it a big hug if I wasn't 50% sure that it would absorb me into the hivemind.

Aw, it's worth the risk! *hugahhhhhhhhh*

EPIC HUG! Best thing ever. I would but 100 and love them all :3

gahhh who filled my cuddly toy with acid....*face melt*

awe it doesn't go boom?

I always found the in-game Baneling to be adorable too, in a weird way.

Plus the sound of them exploding is music to my ears.

SKREEE *sssshhhhh*

Why do rotund creatures filled with goo tend to be made plushie? Boomers and now banelings. How odd...

Bloodstain:
*hugs it* I want one!

NO! DON-

*Boom*

You just had to do it... hasn't going Marine against Zerd taught you anything?

Baneling plushies. Adorably burning a path of annihilation across the stars.

I NEED to have one!

I want one, i have a boomer, so a baneling would be more fun to mod to make noises.

Cant stop making cute plushies...Damn it i want them so bad.

Not G. Ivingname:

If I die hugging one of those things, I die happy! :D
