Weekly Pick-Ups: Week 79!

You have failed this city! A lot of the times (especially in season 1) these words were followed by a deadly arrow. No risk of dying from my purchase this week but it is Green Arrow related!

Q-Fig Green Arrow!

The Green Arrow uses a lot of trick arrows but one of the most iconic ones is the boxing glove arrow so you can why I picked this up. It wasn’t that expensive (around €20) and it has quiet a lot of detail. Great addition to my DC collection!

Who’s your favorite character in ‘Arrow’ that isn’t the Green Arrow? Let me know in the comments!

Top 5 Collector’s Editions!

In the last ‘weekly pick-ups’ I talked about how much I love collector’s editions and I thought to myself; why not make a top 5 of my favorite collector’s editions off all time? I did some research and made a top 5. Let me know what you think about my top 5 in the comments!

Bioshock

What’s in the box?

  • 6 inch Big Daddy figure
  • Making of DVD and Soundtrack
  • The game in a steelcase

The original Bioshock is one of my favorite fps games of all time. The setting, the story; it’s just great. The collector’s edition of this game was equally great because of the superb Big Daddy statue. People are asking crazy money for this now on eBay/Amazon so if you own this; great investment!

Batman:Arkham Origins

What’s in the box?

  • 30 cm figurine of Batman and The Joker
  • Steelcase
  • Artbook
  • Assassins dossier pack
  • 3 pieces of DLC

I’m a huge Batman fan but I didn’t buy this on release even though I thought that the figure looked incredible.  The price was just a bit too high on release so I waited for it to come down a bit and it took quite some time for the price to drop. I bought this last year for the PS3 for €50 (new) which is an amazing deal! The US version had a different collector’s edition which had a blu-ray and a different figure but I’m still very happy with mine.

Injustice Gods Among Us

What’s in the box?

  • 23 cm figure of Wonder Woman fighting Batman
  • An Injustice comic book
  • Steelcase
  • 3 DLC Skins

The DC trend continues with Injustice; a great fighting game that came out in 2013. The collector’s edition has a really nice looking statue of Wonder Woman fighting Batman. I still kick myself in the head for this one because I could have owned this for €40 but I passed up on it because, at the time, I didn’t own a PS3. We all make mistakes sometimes.

Assassin’s Creed III

What’s in the box?

  • A 24-cm figurine of Connor
  • George Washington’s notebook revealing all the truth & secrets about the Assassins and the Templar’s during the American Revolution
  • A steelbook case featuring art by award-winning comic artist Alex Ross
  • Exclusive lithograph
  • Single-Player Mission: Lost Mayan Ruins (DLC)
  • Single-Player Mission: Ghost of War (DLC)
  • Sawtooth Sword (DLC)
  • Obwandiyag’s War Club (DLC)
  • The Sharpshooter Multiplayer Package: Including 1 new Animi Avatar, The Sharpshooter, 1 Relic, 1 Emblem, 1 special Picture and the Title of “The Jester” (DLC)

Ubisoft is known for their great collector’s edition (and for buggy games on release) and this one is my favorite. The figurine looks great and you get a whole lot of extras with it! I pre-ordered this one for the Xbox 360 but then my Xbox broke and I sold it off to a friend. What a shame.

Call of Duty: Black ops 3

What’s in the box?

  • Juggernog Mini-Fridge
  • Perk-A-Cola Coaster Set With Custom Tin
  • Season Pass
  • Limited Edition Specialist Concept Art Cards
  • The Giant Zombies Bonus Map
  • Collectible Steelbook™
  • In-Game Bonus Content: Weaponized 115
  • In-Game Bonus Content: Cyborg
  • Official Call Of Duty: Black Ops III Soundtrack
  • In-Game Bonus Content: Black Ops 3 Bonus Pack

This my favorite collector’s edition of all time! The fridge is just super cool and the fact that you get the season pass with it is a great bonus.  It was pretty expensive on release (and even more expensive now) but I don’t give up the hope that I’ll find one for a decent price in the wild!

Weekly pick-ups: Week 37!

It’s been awhile since something Marvel related popped up in this segment but today that drought ends! Besides the Marvel pickups I also added some blu-rays to my growing blu-ray collection.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2: Power Charged Electro Figure

I know, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is a pretty mediocre (some would say bad) film but that didn’t stop me from picking up this toy. It’s rather small but it has a pretty cool light up feature. The fact that it cost less than €4 made it even better.

Avengers Age of Ultron All-Stars Hulk Figure

Two things made me buy this figure: the price and the fact that this was by far the best looking one they still had in the shop. The other one that was still available, Captain America, looks absolutely horrible. This figurine gets a spot in front of my Hulk collector’s edition DVD.

The Imitation Game, The Purge Anarchy and Welp (Blu-ray)

The Imitation Game is a movie that my brother really likes, the Purge Anarchy is a lot better than the first one (that was just boring) and Welp is a Belgian horror film and even though I thought it was pretty mediocre, I still bought it to support the makers.
