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.
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. The rivalry between the cities splits families and friends as Arcane brings life to the relationships that shape some of League of Legends’ famous champions including Vi, Jinx, Jayce and Caitlyn.
To further spread the excitement and to bring the characters to life, Riot has teamed up with local artists to produce their own interpretations of Arcane’s characters on classic LEGO minifigures.
“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.
