The Secret Shop 2015 review


A few days ago Valve - The International 2015 organizer - presented the items that will be sold in The Secret Shop 2015. In addition to that, they introduced online pre-order system on, created to avoid queue problem. We decided to look through the website and show you amazing things that Valve had prepared for us!


The main page of the website includes "Sign in with Steam" form for all International attendees, planning to place a pre-order, and form for non-attendees, wishing to receive the newest updates. According to the site, most items will be available for sale shortly after The International 2015

Hero figurines


Small cartoon-like hero figurines are presented in the first section of the website. As in the previous year, there is a chance of getting the "rare" one with golden inserts. The figurines cost $ 30 each and come with the Imbued Trove Carafe 2015 treasure.

 Bounty Hunter  Death Prophet




The number of different plushies, compared to last year, remains the same - you have 10 options to choose from. The only things that were changed are the heroes and a secret "rare" eleventh toy. In addition to each plushie you can get Imbued Lockless Luckvase 2015 treasure as a bonus. The "rare" toy, mentioned above, allows you to activate Staglift courier, which looks like a mechanical horse on the preview. The price of each toy is $ 15. You can see all available hero figurines in the pictures below.

Valve introduced a new system : receive one emoticharm pack for every $ 50 spend! Each pack has stickers, and everybody who will manage to collect all 6 packs and stickers will receive an exclusive in-game item! But, of course, there is a small catch - all packs are blind-boxed and you can't see what is inside. Click on the picture above to see all different types of emoticharms.
