Dota 2 is still a fresh new game on Steam but it already have thousands and thousands of gamers playing it, fans and people who just love this MOBA game. Few games have such a devoted fan base and creative players, much of that is of course thanks to Valve who actively plays a part in the community and providing the gamers and fan the proper tools to make the community fantastic. And of course all the fans out there want to express their love for the game to the public, a getting some Dota merchandise is a perfect way of doing that, there’s already a huge variety and amount of different merchandise out there being sold, everything from T-shirt, toys, life size weapons, figures, jewelery and much much more. It’s really amazing how a game can awake so much creativity among people.

Here’s a new category to this list that’s probably my favorite section, we’re talking about Dota 2 prints and posters, made to decorate your walls and these prints will guaranteely make any gaming room look fantastic.
My personal favorites among these ones is of course the Windrunner and Phantom art prints made by the super talented artist Stanley Lau, I might not be the biggest Dota 2 fan but I wouldn’t hesitate getting one of his art on my walls (if I wasn’t so darn poor). I would also recommend checking out Stanley Lau’s other art work over at Society6, just click any of the two first prints down below to head over to Stanley’s corner over at Society6.

DoTA 2 Toys & Action Figures
The truth is that we’re all kids, we all want to play and we all want toys. And what more could a true DoTA 2 gamers ask for then to play Dota for real, with these toys you can! Or just have them because they look good, I guess not everyone is as childish as me.
There’s both soft Plushie and Inflatable Donkey toys, the inflatable is 3 feet tall, so it’s no tiny little donkey. There’s also the limited edition life size shield and sword from Weta, these are expensive and fantastic quality, only for the serious dota 2 player if you ask me, look great hanging on the wall for example.
