You say you have seen closeups of the statue but then dont give links to pictures or at least say where it is you have seen it closeup? Not saying you havent, but it almost seems like your just saying something to support your reasoning for not getting it yourself.
I can't find the picture anymore, but wasn't really a closeup, just a bit more zoomed in than what we've already seen(sorry for the exaggeration). But I'm not trying to make myself feel better about it, I'm simply not interested for that price. I've got Revengeance, Infinite, Ascension & Tomb Raider CE's all coming within 5 weeks of each other. Spending another $160 so soon isn't something I'm prepared to do, especially for a new IP(I would in a heartbeat if it was Uncharted).
I mean, I'm a huge Bioshock fan, and I'm already contemplating dropping my Songbird preorder and just going with the premium for the same reason... An extra $70 for a statue just feels excessive when I'm already spending so much money.
Here's the link to the picture I was talking about, definitely not a closeup, but I feel I don't see something that's worth $100+http://www.google.co...Bw&dur=300/img]
