Statue is pretty nice but hard to justify anything over MSRP unless you want a sealed Master Edition for your collection.

 

The case is hideous but fantastic otherwise. Very solid.

I love the statue more than I thought I would. It's not metal (which is my second favorite medium for figures/sculptures) but it's not plastic either and has some weight to it. Only part I don't like about it is the sprig of greenery but meh.

 

I like the case for what it is--a physical to-scale replica of Link's in-game mobile device (lol) in BotW. Am I gonna walk around in broad daylight with the thing? Probably not. But quality-wise it's a good, sturdy case.

 

All the other stuff included is mostly icing on the cake, but my favorite aspects of the Special/Master Editions was the texture of the product boxes and the fact that there's exclusive art for the game case itself. Awesome.

 

For MSRP, whichever CE you got was totally wurf imo. And a super deal if you managed to get either with GCU/Prime. 

 

Is it worth the third party markup?

....no, probably not....but I likely would've caved after watching just 1 unboxing video lol

Better hurry. Only 13 left.

After debating with myself over an hour, I took the risk on the $5 one. I wonder what i will get. How exciting.

Edit: That same seller is also selling the LOZ BOTW game alone for $5.

Be ready to dispute; Amazon makes it a bitch to get your money back and tends to hold things up for over a month before finally banning the seller and releasing funds back to you. In this case, it was only $5 but they force you to wait a certain period of time for them to ship, even when it's a clear case of scamming.

You are absolutely right. I dont mind waiting a month to get 5 bucks back.

Yeah, I happened to be here when this was posted, and I said $5, why not? I won't really miss it one way or another, if it takes awhile to get a refund(if I'm ever even charged to begin with).

I just shipped a ME to a "collector" and basically surrounded it in pillows. I hope the guy enjoys it , opens, displays and enjoys it.

I keep reading each of your comments in Ross' voice. It's come to the point where I always chuckle.

They are most likely getting your information and selling it too. So keep that in mind too.

That's what I was thinking too, but what do they actually get other than address?  If you are not unlisted, why would they want it?

Some of the flippers must be crying this morning and now have to cancel their multiple orders of the BOTW deluxe guide.

 

It is getting a second printing. http://nintendoevery...econd-printing/

 

Love that the Zelda Art & Artifacts Limited Edition had plenty to screw the flippers and now this one as well. If only Nintendo made a lot more of the BOTW Master Edition. It is the only one I am missing that is brand new and sealed from my collection as I have all versions of Zelda games brand new and sealed since SNES

The price of that was actually pretty low before they even announced more qty being made. As I actually checked earlier this week, in case my Amazon order should be cancelled(or arrived damaged), I wanted to know what it would cost me on the secondary market to get another one.

 

And the other one having had 10,000 was always going to be a hard sale, as that is just to many out there, and most are on Ebay, so yeah, that is about right as well.

Ha, I knew it was odd they never called it "limited" or gave a number for this overpriced guide (if you didn't catch it from amazon at 40% off).  Piggyback was being typically opportunistic after already releasing a "collector's edition", put out a small number of preorders to create hype, and jumped at the chance to put more out there. Three versions of the guide is really pushing it though, especially knowing zelda fans are the type who will want each one for their collection.

 

At least they give people a chance to cancel before announcing this 2nd print and not waiting until it releases.  I bet most orders were just because of the perception it would be rare.

 

As for art and artifacts LE, as the zelda hype is slowly fading, aftermarket price is probably settling around msrp.  I still wonder if the total number of 10K for it is comparable to the 4K mentioned for hyrule historia, or if separate regions are involved.  Price will probably go back up a little at the next zelda release when resale stock is lower.

Well I'm definitely considering cancelling.   No point in spending $50-80 on books that aren't truly limited.  Especially when there is a perfectly good, very nice hardcover edition for only $24.

Gonna cancel my $70 B&N pre-order and just hope it goes on sale at some point or Amazon does a price drop. Also forgot I had the A&A book which after looking at the standard edition, doesn't seem worth $65... but already got it so oh well.

What's the chance this is legit. Suppose to be new and complete. I have a feeling it's missing stuff but I really want the special edition but I don't want to pay the $140 plus they're going for on eBay.

Check the ratings and the number of ratings. The first was rated by one person. So probably not the best. The others are self explanatory.

As of this writing they have 126 available. Not a chance that it's legit. Also check their other items, they're selling Pokemon for $2 and Zelda for $5.

So i finally got lucky and found switch today. Bought it. Anyway, now since im late in the game on botw amiibos, is it worth it to just buy that action replay thing? I just want to get the goodies from the amiibos and buying any amiibo above msrp it out of the question. Anybody have any experience with it?
