Having a hard time understanding what justifies $150 price tag, anyone?

Because Gearbox is publishing it? That's all I can think of. Doesn't look like more than $60 worth of stuff to me. Depends how big the lamp, mask and clock are. Still not worth $150 though.

Collecting is now just another mainstream fad that everyone is doing thanks to social media.

 

So everybody has to get in on it to exploit it now.

$150 for a bunch of pieces of paper, a piece of plastic on a stand, a cardboard box, and an alarm clock that is probably the quality of of something you'd find in an arcade grab machine, and a vinyl soundtrack.

 

Easy pass.

Why are all of you people saying pass, Sonicmania CE has no physical game and people are buying that in droves!

Sonicmania is $45/$55 and not $150. Pretty big difference in price there.

True. Disappointed in the lack of a physical copy, but for the $43 I paid on amazon the statue and cart/ring case are pretty bad ass.

For the price, even without the game, that was a solid value, especially where CE are concerned. Plus Sonic has a pretty big fan base.

 

Some of these CE are just out of touch with reality.

Anyone lucky enough to get one of the signed Sonic CEs?

One of us may sit on it sealed in a back-log for ages or to keep sealed and never discover it at all...

Opened up my Sonic Mania CE. Didn't get a signed copy but still happy with what I paid for it.

Finally got my Sonic Mania PS4 CE. Probably just gonna sell the code since I can't really justify having it on both Switch and PS4, especially when the Switch version is portable

It doesn't even come with a digital game, it comes with no game. Without the game it's just a bundle of merch.

Yes, and that merch is stylized perfectly, is sizable, and at the right price point.  It's really the best 'no-game-included' CE I think I've ever seen.

Ordered the CE, can always cancel later if it ends up being super common.

 

Also speaking of Square Enix, has anyone who ordered the new batch of members rewards had their stuff delivered yet? My KH Steelbook/Artbook and WoFF Figures have been sitting as being prepared since the 8th

Grabbed a CE, thanks :)

 

I only grabbed the WoFF figures Wiggles, and my order has been stuck in the same stage as you.  I'm guessing the figures are holding up the orders.

csbaker is going to place 30 orders between all 3 retailers to ensure he gets all 3 steebooks.

The WOFF figures are what's holding up the orders.

He needs them for his instagram, YouTube, and Snapchat accounts.

Are the Dissidia Steelbooks only at the square enix store or other retailers?  I can't find info anywhere!  I think I'm going to pass on the CE, although it does look cool.  I could've done it for $130.

Oh damn, I should have ordered them separately then. I assumed they were all in stock, not that they had to be produced still or something.

They had the WOFF figures at SDCC. I got the last of set 2. I'm assuming they're waiting for a shipment from Japan.

 

As for the Dissidia steelbooks... they don't look that great, but I still want a Shantotto.

I also ordered the WoFF figures and that order is sitting in being prepared since the 8th. 

 

However, I my earlier order of the star ocean / KH / deus ex steelbooks was delivered.

 

Im guessing the WoFF are causing some delay for some reason...
