One of three World of Warcraft collectible statues donated by Ed Fries. Fries is the owner of FigurePrints, a company that manufactures custom-made WoW figurines based on actual characters created by players. Interested buyers dress, arm and pose their characters however they wish, and a screenshot of the finished image is then sent to the company and printed into a high-quality three-dimensional model.
Before opening FigurePrints, Fries was the vice president for game publishing at Microsoft. He assisted in acquiring major game development companies, including Bungie Studios, which developed Halo, the flagship game for the Xbox.
