I want a genuine leather wrapped statue with rough canvas wings. If this happens then I don't care how much it costs. But, everything has to be plastic :(


But that's why it's $150 with the game and not $450 with the game. If you want an aftermarket model, sometimes you can find some really good ones out there. It just doesn't make sense financially for them to pack something like that in with the CE and try to sell a lot of them.

Of course, I don't expect them to pack it into a CE. I am looking for this desired aftermarket model as of now, currently all I am seeing is plastic models.

I had no interest in the Songbird edition, that is until I beat the game. Its a masterpiece and I love the Songbird presence in the game, so bought.

I already bought the game on PC for cheap but I still want this ... just not sure which edition to get now or which would hold its value best? Any suggestions?

I just opened my songbird edition up. The little handyman board game piece is really puny, and the murder of crows keychain is kinda weak because it is very lightweight. The little artbook is really nice, and the songbird figure is really very nicely done.

That sucks, I've never owed. We got a lot more than expected this year, can't touch it though.



I received like a $2 check once after some back pay for initiation dues and union dues, I don't think I even cashed the check.


i cashed mine. my friends at the time said i should of framed it. i regret not doing that now lol

With my love of the series I probably would have bit on this had it been $100, even tho I feel like even that is a touch steep. But there's no way I can justify the $150 they're asking for this set. I watched an unboxing last night and I just don't see it. Considering that everything BUT the statue is in the $80 set (correct me if I'm wrong on that), there is no way that statue is worth $70.

I'm sure they'll sell out because it doesn't sound like they overproduced this one, and the game IS incredible.

Yup. $80 for everything else. The statue is literally doubles the cost for just that.

Well, if it does sell out, i guess $149.99 is the "right" price for the developers/publishers.

Well, the "worthy price" calculations gets thrown out of the window once things become hard to find at MSRP. Which I don't know if this will be, maybe eventually.

I know the statue isn't worth $80 to a lot of people, but for the size/material it seems like an alright price. I pay $70 about once every month or two (bit of a guilty pleasure, and a relatively expensive hobby) getting statues, they're about the same size and just as cool-looking as this songbird.

The songbird statue will only hold its value until the inevitable songbird figure is released with equivalent quality. Given that the statue is medium quality plastic, I believe, I don't see the value skyrocketing anytime soon. A deluxe figure will run between $30 to $40 most likely, so paying $70 for a statue of similar quality right now seems a bit much.

Of course if you're buying to resell it's an entirely different discussion. I was speaking from the point of someone who would be buying it to keep for themselves. I just don't see the value, but to each their own.

No no no, the desire for rarity is not directly related to the intention for resell.

I collect statues, along with other stuff (mostly rare oriental hand crafted items). And for any collector of anything, you want to collect the rare and valuable. Or else there would be no point of "collecting" if you could shell out an acceptable amount of cash anytime and buy the entire collection off Amazon. If this becomes hard to find, it is valuable (regardless of quality) to collectors and resellers alike, hence the motivation for monitoring the retailers' supply.

I mean come on, you have 100+ feedback, you must be a collector to some degree, you can understand this mentality.
