Riot Games SEA is giving away custom-made Arcane toy collectibles to lucky fans on their social media channels!
15 November 2021, Singapore – Riot Games Southeast Asia is collaborating with local artists in Singapore and The Philippines, to give away custom-made Arcane toy collectibles in a special collaboration to celebrate the release of Riot’s first animated series, Arcane.
Firstly, Arcane premiered on 7 November 2021 and is based on the world behind League of Legends. Arcane dives into the delicate balance between the rich city of Piltover and the seedy underbelly of Zaun. This rivalry between the cities splits families and friends. Arcane brings life to the relationships that shape some of League of Legends’ famous champions. Specifically, they are Vi, Jinx, Jayce, and Caitlyn.
Riot intends to further spread the excitement and to bring the characters to life. They have teamed up with local artists to produce custom-made Arcane toy collectibles. They will be bringing their own interpretations of Arcane’s characters on classic LEGO mini-figures.
“The League of Legends champions in Arcane are very close to the hearts of players and fans. To celebrate the release of Arcane, we wanted to bring these characters to life through various tangible mediums and we’re incredibly excited to collaborate exclusively with Southeast Asian artists to capture their take on Arcane on these one-of-a-kind toy collectibles,” said G. Justin Hulog, General Manager of Riot Games for Southeast Asia and Taiwan.
