Let’s just get this out in the open, I’m a complete sucker for special editions, especially when it has a figure or statue with it. I mean, I bought the special edition Bioshock Infinite walkthrough AFTER I completed the game just for the key that came with it.
But that’s not what I want to talk about, what I want to talk about are the genuine people that buy the special editions for themselves, or a present for someone that will love it. I have to say; I love you guys. You are my favourite people, who will love and care for the statues like I would, you are all the best.
But I’m guessing you are all wondering, “But isn’t that everyone, Samii?” And to that I say, “Sadly not, friends.”
I’m talking about the people who pre-order special edition games and then as soon as they get them, put them on ebay for ridiculous sums of money. This is my ultimate hate, because I now know I will never be able to afford that, and it’s sad. Just because you don’t want some of the stuff in the pack, doesn’t mean you have the right to bump the price tenfold, just buy the normal edition!
But it’s not just games that this happens to, what about special statues or figures, or even a DVD special, or a limited edition comic. I’m lucky to have the statues and goodies I have today, but it’s becoming more and more obvious that people out there are doing this, so I say, please stop!
I guess as soon as I can afford my Wonder Woman punching Batman Injustice: Gods Among Us statue then I’ll be a lot happier, but I know I’m going to be the first person on the pre-orders now to avoid this happening again.
– Has this ever happened to you guys?
– Have you wanted something and couldn’t get it but then realised it’s on ebay in a matter of hours for a stupid price?
– Do you share my love for special editions?
– Whats the best special edition you’ve bought before?
Let me know, guys
