If you wanted one don't feel bad; I don't think they were ever available. I bought one just cause after he posted and an hour ago I got a "Backorder" e-mail which ultimately means it ain't coming.

It doesn't show online, but in-store I saw Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag for $109.99 for PS3 while the Xbox 360 was $129.99 and thought that was kind of odd.

For those who have it, what are your guys thoughts on the Batman Arkham Origins Collector's Edition, specifically the joker statue?

 

I picked up the game, but I'm debating on returning it and getting the CE. Is it worth it? How's the detail/quality?

 

Thanks.

I have seen both the European and US version in person, I can say without a shadow of doubt, the US version looks like complete garbage.

 

I honestly don't know why folks here on CAG are raving about the US version but I have to agree w/ the hundreds of reviews(counting people that agreed w/ the review as well) that the statue is mediocre at best. It doesn't light up well, the quality and craftsmanship is garbage IMHO.

 

I don't have a fucking clue why CAGs are complimenting it but comparing the US to the EU version and other collector's editions released by WB (MK and AC), this thing is not worth the price at all.

Hell, even on it's own and not comparing it to other WB's products I wouldn't buy this C.E...

I don't like the UK version for this particular CE at all. Why people are so enamored with those types of statues (i.e. think Injustice) I'll never know.

 

But for someone who HAS this statue I'm not sure how you can rant about it being "garbage" at the $119.99 price point. What CE's with statues at the $119.99 price point were better? I have just about every major CE that has come out in the last few years and if you think this is garbage I'd hate to see what you think about some of the others.

Can't comment on the Origins Joker statue, but I thought the Bioshock Big Daddy statue and the Arkham City Batman statue were very well done. Those CEs were $80 and $100 respectively, IIRC.

 

Also, the Slimer statue that Amazon had with the Ghostbusters game a few years back is good quality.

The Dracula’s Tomb Premium Edition is limited to just 30,000 units across Europe and will be available in the UK exclusively via GAME. Those who snag one will find its contents inside a tomb casing complete with a copy of the game, four highly detailed miniature figurines designed by comic book artist Neil Googe (Judge Dredd, Wildcats), an A4 hardcover art book, and an exclusive Steelbook.

Konami also revealed an alternative steelbook edition for pre-orders from Zavvi, which is encased in a metallic cover featuring an exclusive image of its central figure, Dracula. Those pre-ordering will also receive the alternate ‘Premium Dracula’ suit, a ‘Dark Dracula’ costume, or a ‘Relic Rune’ pack, that adds relic items to the user’s inventory, dependent on where it is pre-ordered.

So glad BB offered the documentary movie for $6 if you bought it with the game.

Agreed. The joker statue is junk. The EU version is a superior sculpt and paint job.

Question for you guys. I have an opportunity to pick up the AC IV LE. Should I pull the trigger now or should this get as cheap as the AC III LE?

I picked up the US Arkham Origins CE and I like it. While I like the UK statue a tiny bit more, this one is still pretty cool. Don't expect a $400 quality statue for the price and you'll be happy with it.

Definitely wait.  Ubisoft is well known for their common LE/CE's as of late.  Target/WM still have AC3 and Gamestop would as well if they hadn't converted them to used.  Between Splinter Cell, and 4+ different versions of AC4 & Watchdogs, I have a feeling like we're going to see a lot of Ubi LE's gathering dust for the next year.

 

I swear im cursed when it comes to buying CE's.  It seems like the ones I buy (SR4 GotG, Xillia, GTA 5, Arkham Origins, etc) end up being the common ones and the ones I pass up on because I thought they'd be common (WWE 14, FF 14, Last of us PP) are the ones that get rare.

I like it a lot. My only complaint is that it doesn't fit the shelf I was planning to put it on because of how deep it is. So now it sits away from the other Batman figures and statues I have.

 

I like the UK one too though. I plan on snagging that figure in a few months if the price doesn't inflate too badly.

I'm digging that Castlevania LoS2 CE.  I hope it comes out in the U.S. and <$100.  There isn't any huge statue or major item, so that one should be $80.

You mean the big daddy statue where the majority arrived broken? Yep.. not speaks "quality" then DOA.

 

I agree the arkham city statue was pretty good but if you pull up threads relating to it at the time it released those were filled with people bitching about the paint job.

Hmm well the limited edition of LoS was 80.00 and it was a great looking G1 sized digibook (artbook) and just came with a limited soundtrack. I'd hope that they release something similar but cheaper because the LoS LE is great.

That red steelbook looks sexy. I'm crossing my fingers for something similar in the US. Even if it's just a pre order bonus.

The first one was a steel and the UK is a steelbook so i would assume so.

First, how can you claim prior non-existance to devalue a movement? I am sure the civil rights movement would love that. "Well, there was no movement to free the slaves before, so why is it relavent now?"

I'm gonna cry if this doesn't come to the US. I've been waiting for this game ever since the first one.

Meh, that was a packaging issue more than anything. The box should have been larger so that the drill-hand wasn't pressed against it. At least they sent out free replacements along with collectible art books. A little super glue, and I know have two nice Big Daddy statues on display.

My cat knocked my big daddy statue over and broke the tip off. Glue worked well, but it was super annoying
