Unless that's some high quality lamp (ie, not made in China), I can't believe they're actually selling this for $150.

Your opinion. And it's a plasma lamp, just decor really. Also, I can definitely put this out and it would be a good conversation piece. I like this far better than getting another useless bland statue.

Not worth the extra money at the moment though.

Wait, already sold out? And I agree, that is an expensive lamp. It looks nice, but so did the Loot Chest in pictures. And that would looks pretty cool in my kids' room.

Yes, a great conversation piece. Provided that all of your friends are 14 and under, naturally.

I'm thinking the lamp is small. There has got to be a reason they're not putting it in any pictures where you can compare it's size to another object.

I dont really care for the lamp really, not until it get down in the 40ish price range. just respect other people's opinion.

as for conversation well....

80yrs in the future:

Boy:"Grandfather why do you have this weird looking light display? Don't you know everything is made out of laser these days?

Grandfather: "Well Jimmy to tell you where I got that lamp you going to have to understand the a little story of Metal Gear.."

Just saying.

I guess you never had a conversation started from a lava lamp or any interesting looking piece of decor? Since it is a plasma lamp, you can play also with the lamp so while it may not lead to life changing conversation, it certainly would attract the attention of many guests probably asking "What is that?"

today- "NOT A DEAL, $150!? woulda bought it at $100-90-80..., wait til clearance Rabble rabble ramble etc"

next week or whenever it sells out- "WHAAAT!!! I WANTED THAT!!! HOW COULD THEY NOT MAKE MORE!!!!!!!!!! YOU MEAN I CAN'T GET IN NOW THAT I KNOW ITS RARE SO I CAN BUY 4 AND FLEECE PEOPLE ON EBAY FOR 4X RETAIL??!!!! " OH SHADY ASS RANDOM COMPANY HAS SOME FOR SALE, YAAYY LETS GO!!!!!!!!!!!"

I woulda thought this dance got old with borderlands 2 :roll: how people think its any different here than at slick deals or fat wallet is beyond me.

The lamp looks like a cool display piece, so as long as it isnt shown to be a piece of crap, and the game gets a solid score, I'll keep my preorder.

haha~ I'd have to kind of agree with this; I have a bit of CE/LE and gaming-related nerd swag, and aside from an exasperated expression and/or statement and follow-up questions (such as how much did this cost you, when did you get it, etc.), there's nothing really said beyond that with friends and acquaintances.

Then again, most of my friends are just as into video games and other nerd/geek culture as me (if not more). :lol:;)

I'm still going to spring for it since I love Metal Gear, Platinum Games, and lamp.

I dont really care for the lamp really, not until it get down in the 40ish price range. just respect other people's opinion.

I think the lamp looks cool, but I'm gonna stick with the standard copy I have pre-ordered on Newegg.

I usually get Metal Gear for both consoles, but I think I may have to just do this for one or the other. That price is just too steep.

Check out my youtube channel! I do video game collection updates, unboxings, final impressions, and intelligent game industry commentary.  Expect lots of collector's editions, as well as steelbooks from all over the world! :D

Im sure it would cause conversation with people older than 14. Likely behind the owners back... Still counts though!

In for 1, my gaming den is a little dark anyway. (That Dishonored lamp that's the size of a USB memory stick just isn't going to cut it.)

Worse case situation I just cancel the pre-order and haven't lost anything. Best case it becomes rare and I can sell it back to all the doubters. :)

These collector's editions are getting out of hand. I used to buy a lot of collector's editions but they have increased in price over time and just added more and more junk inside the box. I've started trending away from collector's editions because of this, and just get the regular edition that will fit on my shelf and I don't have to find extra space. Actually, now I am more of a sucker for complete or goty or collections that take up even less space and fit more game content in the box.

I also agree, Konami & Platinum Games CE's have been pretty limited. Not sure how limited this will be but that Bayonetta gun looked pretty snazzy and actually cool unlike many of the crappy statues that come with CE's.

This lamp is also pretty nice but $149.99 just seems to much for me, I -might- get it, but I'll ponder on it for a little longer and see what happens though.


Now I remember what that gun is worth.... IN for one!

well i ordered 4. people seem to forget how easy it is to cancel an amazon pre-order. and you can always tell how rare collector's editions are going to be lately by how long before release they sell out.

I don't really buy collectors editions anymore so I'll probably grab it regardless of the price. And I really want that lamp.

Besides if it turns out to be a dinky piece of crap or whatever, I can always cancel it. it's safe to say there will be an early unboxing of this.

You don't get charged until it ships. But it does tie up your credit if you have that.
