The same ex-Blizzard employee auctioning one of the Kerrigan Queen of Blades Bust Statue is now auctioning one of those awesome Diablo III Treasure Goblin given to Blizzard employees a couple of months ago during the holidays (as seen here).
I'm disappointed to see this piece going to auction when it was gifted just a few weeks ago. All I can muster is that the person is in terrible need while a new job comes into the horizon.

"Auctioner Bulkhead: Greetings fellow Diablo fans! Up for a Buy it Now/Best Offer auction is an extremely rare Diablo III Treasure Goblin statue that was made exclusively as a 2012 holiday gift for select Blizzard Employees. Since this is still brand new and sealed, I do not know what limited edition number this is. Again, this was never sold to the public and is a one of a kind item that you could only get by working on the franchise.
The Treasure Goblin has been designed by former McFarlane Toys sculptor Brian Fay, who also designed the Sideshow Collectibles Arthas statue! Brian now works as Blizzard's Sculpting Lead! The statue is housed in an awesome box, featuring an outline of the Treasure Goblin on the back, and a "Treasure Wish List" on the side.
Below, I have included a photo Tweeted by Blizzard's Nick Carpenter (the 2nd photo), so you can see what the statue looks like, but remember that the one I am selling is BRAND NEW/NEVER OPENED! The first photo has the regular head. The second photo has the "Santa Claus Holiday head" for the Goblin. Your statue will come with both interchangeable heads!
Given the rarity of this particular item, I am open to best offers. If you run out of offers, just send me an email using the "Ask A Question" link at the bottom of this page and we can work something out. Or you can use the "Buy it Now" option to grab this beauty right away!
Here are the terms for this auction:
1) Paypal only, please. 2) The figure will be shipped out for $14 within the U.S. and $50 outside the United States, including insurance! 3) Detailed photos of the actual item have been included, so all sales are final, please.
My feedback speaks for itself, so please purchase/send offers with confidence :) Please click here to check out my other auctions, including other awesome video game items!"
