    I know some of you aren't into this sort of thing, but I do know of at least one person, personally, that is as into collecting game related trinkets as I am (if you're reading this, I still will take your Big Daddy figure off your hands if you want). Knowing that, I'm going to guess that there are even more of you out there that have their own "shrine to gaming geekdom" as I do.

    This thread is for you. I'll list, when I find them, all upcoming Collector's and or Special Editions that are going to be released with future titles. If you find anything, even if it's not with the release of the title itself (Europe actually got a few pretty sweet statuettes of Soap from CoD: MW 2 not too long ago) feel free to post about it here.

    Here's one for Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II
    That's No Moon, It's A Force Unleashed II Collector's Edition
    Not overly impressed with this one to be honest. The digital artbook sounds sweet. Looks to be mostly alot of in game content type stuff, which is always cool, but 20 extra bucks? Gonna wait before I decide on this one.

    Here's one for Mafia II
    Gamestop.com - Buy Mafia II Collector's Edition - Playstation 3
    Considering you'll get a $10 dollars off of a future puchase, I think $10 dollars extra isn't too bad for this one. Again, lots of in game goodies, and an art book.


    Halo Reach has two:
    Gamestop.com - Buy Halo Reach Limited Edition - Xbox 360
    or...
    Gamestop.com - Buy Halo Reach Legendary Edition - Xbox 360


    Fallout: New Vegas (drool)
    Gamestop.com - Buy Fallout: New Vegas Collector's Edition - Xbox 360
    You know, out of everything in that package, I think I'm most anxious to get my hands on the novel that comes with it. The book that came with the Alan Wake collector's edition went a long way into helping to tell the story and get you immersed in the experience of playing that title. Only question now is will Amazon release their own version like they did with the last game?


    Fable III
    Gamestop.com - Buy Fable III Limited Edition - Xbox 360

    Here's one for a PC title. I'm pretty sure most of you know about this one.
    StarCraft II

    That's it for now. I'll check back in when I find any other cool little trinkets and or announcements of CE/LE for upcoming releases. Again, feel free to add anything you might be able to find.






    p.s. DONT UNSTICK, i STUCK FOR A REASON...THANKS!- Lu

    Nothing major or groundbreaking here, but apparently, whomever you pre order your copy of Fallout: New Vegas from, denotes which special in game goodies you'll get from the start.

    Fallout: New Vegas Gets Retailer-Specific Preorder Packs

    Here's some figures for you Bayonetta fans:

    http://kotaku.com/5559899/the-bayone...netta/gallery/

    Do have to agree with the writer of the article in the sense that the G.I. Joe type hinges take away from the "sleekness", but still pretty cool. Not sure I'd pay $50 dollars though.

    The Bayonetta Figure That's Not Bayonetta

    Didnt get the bayonetta figures because of the awful hinges. Just a sexy PVC figure would have done the trick. The play arts type figures are always pretty crappy Just check the FF13 ones.


    Also im not interested in in game pre order bonuses, I want physical bonuses like the bioshock 2 collectors edition with the vinyl, or the first Fallout pack that came in a lunchbox. now that shit, ill pre order for, if not screw it.

    good thread btw

    Feeling you on the hinges comment. Poseable is one thing, but, I don't know, how do you say it? Clean it up a little bit? Now the Brother's In Arms figure that came with that CE, that was a decent poseable figure with joint hinges. Granted they were easier to hide as the ridged feel of the combat suit sort of made the hinges blend a little with the rest of the get up. If I had known at the time that the Dante's Inferno figure would have been a decent height (not a finger sized figure like the first AC) I would have gotten that one. It looked bad assed but from the image I saw I thought it was going to be very small and not detailed at all. Only found out otherwise after the fact. Would have to say though that up to this point, the best figure I've obtained via a pre order would have to be the Enzio figure I got with the Assassin's Creed 2 preorder. Very nice indeed. Agree with you on the physical bonuses too Styles. It's good to have some in game goodies, but if you're going to charge me extra for investing in your product ahead of time, then do something worth it other than just slapping CE or LE on the lable.

    Oh, and while this may not be anything pruchasable, I came across this while catching up on some gaming news over on kotaku.

    This Viewtiful Joe Papercraft Is 3.5 Feet Tall

    Mad kudos to the gent that sat down and put that thing together.

    The only special editions I've got which are worth mentioning are the MW2 Veteran pack and the GTAIV Special Edition. They are the only ones which came with any merchandies or whatever you want to call it.

    I will definitely be getting the Fallout New Vegas one with the poker chips and whatnot.

    i never quite found the allure of collectible items for video games. it seems like money wasted to me, and when my brother bought Halo 3 legendary edition, i just looked at him, shook my head, and vowed to never waste that kind of money in my life.

    it just doesnt seem worth it unless it has some amazing new in-game content.......and even then, shouldn't it be in the game in the first place rather than making the higher-class (or idiotic) gamers get it? gawd, i sometimes hate the video game industry...... >=(

    Everybody loves vuvuzelas!!!!!

    So does this mean you're looking to buy my Dante figure that I got from preordering Dante's Inferno, monk?

    Lol, no thank you Creep. If I miss out on a pre-order then I usually just go to the local Hot Spot and see if they may have it there. They actually had some pretty decent Kratos and Gears (some of the Locust figures aren't half bad) figures and statuettes there recently.

    However....
    if you have this,
    Modern Warfare 2 Veteran ARTFX Soap MacTavish Statue

    or if you have this...
    You Cannot Stop Mai Shiranui Figurines


    then we're talking something different. That paticular statue (the Soap one) wasn't available here locally through any pre orders and I haven't found any available locally just yet either...the "slowness" of living down south isn't always a good thing.


    I do have to briefly disagree with you Deity. I don't think it's a "class" thing when it comes to collectables and gaming. Being an idiot is debatable but when it comes to hobbies, it's always different strokes for different folks ya know? My mom use to collect those porcelan clown figures. When we stayed in Atlanta she had a two cabinets (the floor to ceiling double door ones) jammed full of the things. I never got it personally but it was what she enjoyed and collecting them made the experience more enjoyable for her. That's all it is my good man.

    that GTA4 special edition was bad ass. I store all my games in that safe now.

    Here's a definate. Well, for me at least anyways.

    Gran Turismo 5's Collector's Edition Is Reward For Your Patience

    Retailing at $99 but I think this is one that may be worth it. An awesome collectable piece, a keychain I can put next to my R* keychain, a book for car lovers, AND in game goodies. The model car is just too sweet though.

    That's a definite for both you and my younger brother... he's a total mark for those Gran Turismo games.

    Who are you calling a mark for GT games hmm? *wipes the chalk marks off the back of his shoulder*
    Personally I can't help it when it comes to that paticular CE Creep. The Gran Turismo series was the original racing sim that got me absolutely hooked in the genre. I know the Forza backers are going to make their case for that title, and I'll give the game the fact that you can customize your automobile like no other game out there. Guess I'm just loyal to what got me hooked to racing sims to begin with.

    On a different note, here's a cherry of a figure for anyone who's into the Prince of Persia games.


    Prince Of Persia Figure Has Plastic Face, Jakey Chest

    They really nailed all of the details and I must say that overall this is a nicely done figure. The joints and hinges aren't noticeable and the interchangeable accesories are sweet. A little pricey for me right now but if I had the money available, I'd defintely get it.

    The second line of Batman figures are out as well:

    http://kotaku.com/5568465/more-batma...house/gallery/

    Bane is pretty awesome looking, Zsas is alright, they shanked on Poison Ivy worse than Dustin Johnson at the U.S. Open yesterday, and I just don't like the Batman figure.

    Here's the first line for anyone that hasn't seen them:

    Read carefully what I posted. I called my younger brother a mark for those GT games. Christ, what's with the uber sensitivity around here lately?

    It's called sarcasm Creep, as noted by ME wiping the chalk marks off my shoulder, hence referring to myself as a mark ;). I'd stick my tongue out at you but I can't bring up the smiley faces. Thanks for the chuckle that comes with miscommunication though =).

    Not sensitive man, just sarcasm, which can't be expressed through the movement of fingers across a keyboard.
