Dota 2’s 2017 Baby Roshan Statue is a Disappointing Lil Demon

The Dota 2 Battle Pass tied with the MOBA’s International esports event generally offers up lots of juicy rewards, so consider the surprise of fans when the Dota 2 Baby Roshan statue that was on offer from 2017’s Battle Pass ended up looking a lot less than what was promised on the tin.

Pictured above is an image from the mock-up of the statue, which was an 8.5cm x 9cm physical reward offered to those Battle Pass owners who managed to make their way to Battle Level 2000. The statue was stated to be created in a silver nickel finish and intended to be a centerpiece.

What players got instead, however, ended up looking alot less centerpiece-worthy as illustrated in the image below (click to expand):

Not only does the statue look less like silver nickel and more like silver Sharpie marker scribbling, but the statue was also ended up having underwhelming levels of detail and some very obvious seam lines from poor casting.

Valve has responded to the reaction of fans, expressing what appears to be just as much surprise as those who received the item. “We apologize to our fans for that, it is well below the quality we expected,” reads the post. “We are going to start from scratch on new production for the statue, and prioritize delivering it as soon as possible to every customer that reached level 2000 last year.”

Our Thoughts

Awe, smol Roshan is trying his very best! But, seriously, that’s a pretty ugly statue and good on Valve for taking steps to correct it. Is it weird that we kind of find the underwhelming version a bit cute, though? Or maybe we’re thinking allegorically…
