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


Ouch. At least it was an easy fix.

At least you didn't have this happen to your CE of the original Bioshock:

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...

 

It could be due to the fact that we have minds and are capable of individual thought. Try not to get so emotional when we don't all agree with you.

Just got an email regarding the Tales CE from Amazon about release date being pushed back.

 

Site still shows 2/25, and that's what I was told at GS Friday afternoon - are they saying it's different from that now, or is it a case of them finally putting the correct date in their system?

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.


Yeah lol. Id be disappointed if i paid over $150 for the US or UK statue. Theyre both average, but great at $120 price point.

And you cant see the assassins clearly on the TV screens on the joker statue with bright light.

This is my only gripe with the statue. The production pics made it look more prominent.

Dad can't tell the difference between Bioshock and Bioshock 2. My guess is it's not that big a deal to him.

In a follow up tweet he corrects himself. And considering that it's the developer of both Bastion and the forthcoming Transistor, I'm sure he knows the difference.

Why is this so popular? I don't get it. It's severely overpriced, considering what you get. I wouldn't even consider buying it to flip, because it's not worth it. $10 or so per copy at best, while making other people waste an extra $60. Unless you're a huge WWE fan (are there really that many), why would you buy this? Looking around I can see a lot of eBay entrepreneurs (fail flippers) bought up stock, so maybe that's why it's selling out. Who knows. This is not one bit appealing to me, as a gamer, a slight WWE fan, or a flipper. They could have at least included a statue to go inside the damn thing...

signed by the undertaker, the coffin is pretty cool, and the supply is very low. I doubt they made very many of these. I've seen them sold for $170+ on ebay i'm not sure how you can't make a profit from that.

 

edit: just looked at what the dlc has sold for.. I saw the dlc sold for almost as much as the whole collectors edition. I have no idea why people would pay so much for a character, but thats pretty crazy..

The only thing I'm sure of is in his tweet he didn't name the correct game. It couldn't have been that tragic for him.

I don't know, when I factor in shipping (going by similar sized items), fees, cost to purchase, and the $10 to $20 just isn't worth the time. More than likely you'd be closer to $10, since there are already many others at below $170. This is one of the ones that you buy to enjoy if you really like the stuff, this isn't a flip worthy item. At least, in my opinion. If you want to head to the post office a dozen times and waste that much time trying to make a little money, by all means...

The Alucard Nendoroid is probably going to make this CE hard to find down the road.


so admiralvic is one of 7 people who has platted lost planet 2. and one of 4 people with 100% on spelunker hd. respect him even more

I have to agree with you on that.

I simply want this regardless of the possible scarcity if the set. Being rare is just a bonus for me. :)

I want this Titanfall CE so much, but $250 is a bit extreme.  Anyone else think they'll drop like a rock in price?

^ I think the TitanFall CE will drop in price as it seems to be carried by just about every retailer and they've made no effort to state how few (or many) are being produced.

That, combined with the fact that this is a PS3 exclusive and that there is a (relatively) big amount of hype surrounding this title. Not to mention that the LE is generally loaded: figurine, blu-ray, soundtrack, art book and poster? Sold. I could see it being scarce as well.

Wasn't this confirmed for EU only? 

 

Has there been additional information confirming this CE's release here in the states?

I sure hope so. I wouldn't mind at around $150. Though I will be a bit screwed by the time it does drop seeing as I already have the game and art book preordered separately and so would realistically only want the statue and would have to flip the rest!

I know. My comment was completely "I would preorder now and decide later", instead of "I am going to decide now and preorder later".

The biggest fact is that Aksys sold the Noel figure for $25 ALONE and people pounced on that deal. You figure, the whole US stock of these were sold at anime conventions for $20 and online sold out in like 20 minutes (I recall because it was one of VERY few deals I missed and wanted). Then you figure you're getting the game for $50 and the figure is going for $20+, then the other stuff is at most costing you $10 dollars. However, I can't speak for the stock (which I assume is going to be very low), but I can say nendoroids tend to be extremely well done figures. Especially next to standard CE fare.

Pre-order now and decide later to avoid regret!

Usually it works out this way... Of course. We got this videogame supply and demand thing down to a science now right?
