Scholomance Teddy?

    Does anyone know what this turquoise teddy is?

    I've noticed it in a few pieces of card and promotional art. Is it Warcraft lore-related, or a Hearthstone original "cute thing in spooky set"?

    Started playing HS in May, 2015. The bad news: I missed the excitement of 'Naxx out?' and GvG. The good news: I never met an Undertaker.

    I believe that is a murloc plush toy, in the mouth of a Feral Gibberer. I wouldn't be surprised if the toy is just a generic stuffed toy in the Warcraft universe, but I'm glad to see the gibberer again.

    Look like a murloc to me. Might just be an inside joke thing that they like to reuse.

    Maybe even Murloc Tinyfin?

    It can also be found on the cards drawn by Matt Dixon (https://www.instagram.com/p/CColJtIDShb/ or https://www.instagram.com/p/CCvLCPGjwZ4/). I think it’s a funny detail that Dixon likes to add to his drawings. He has usually added a small frog to his other drawings, but this time it may not have fit academy theme?

    The glibberer is playing with Murloc Plush Toy  https://wow.gamepedia.com/Talking_Murloc_Plush_Toy

    There are several official licenced murloc  plush versions available   -so this card is advertising for merchandise items :)

    Sholomancy is a lighthearted set, it's a Harry Potter setting if anything nothing spooky about it

    It's also seen on the art of the new card Troublemaker and its Ruffian token (bottom left and right, respectively), both by Matt Dixon. I don't think it's anything else than an easter egg he likes to include.

    I love that, it definitely had to have come from Matt and making art for Blizzard this long, they "allow him" (are thankful for) these kind of quirks imo that make the art better. And he just puts these little things here and there. I wonder if other artists do the same, im sure some of them do, like their little secret calling card.

    Samwise Didier hides pandas in most of his art. It's the whole reason Pandaren are even a thing.

    Granted, I don't think there are pandas in any of his Hearthstone artworks, but I have a Warcraft III art book with pandas all over it.

    A man is lying on the street, some punks chopped off his head

    I'm the only one who stops to see if he's dead.

    Hmm. Turns out he's dead.
