Welcome to Your Daily Nerd Thing where every weekday we bring you a different nerdy thing we found on the internet. Heroes of the Storm is Blizzard’s mobile online battle arena game and like others it has many characters and each character has many different cosmetic appearances available. Every year they have a Christmas holiday event where the characters can decked out in candy canes and colored lights and red and green attire fitting the season. The Heroes of the Storm twitter account @BlizzHeroes has released a number of teaser images that may indicate they are going in a different direction this year.

This cuddly bear looks like it might be a new character skin for Stitches, everyone’s favorite horrible undead abomination. And it has some art on the box for a few more soft stuffed versions of other characters.

Then came this image of a dinosaur like creature action figure that looks very much like it could be a new skin for Dehaka the primal zerg.
And most recently came this image of what looks like Valeera the blood elf rogue dressed up as some kind of sentai hero.

It looks like instead of regular holiday stuff this year will feature some new skins inspired by the toys one finds under the Christmas tree. It is possible we will see a few more of these pop up before the proper announcement.
