Good price for all that stuff. I have no interest in the extras, but that's a lot better than charing $130-$150 like some super editions.
Duke Nukem Forever "Balls Of Steel Edition" Detailed
Well the bust will obviously be a miniature bust (probably 6 inches) but that's still a good size, even if it's hollow. The rest of the stuff are obviously just little trinkets, but much better than those found in some other highly-priced CEs. The cards, the chips, the dice, the comic book... those are all pretty damn wicked.
Just throw in a couple ball bearings or something, like they show right on the box. Maybe with Duke's face on them. It's a totally obvious and easy thing that would have been pretty funny.
" @Andryan said:" There are no Balls of Steel? LAME. "Are you seriously saying you want a cast of Dukes actual balls made from steel....rly?.....RLY?"
Or how about just a plastic keychain or something where you could press a button and it would play the "I've got balls of steel!" clip, perhaps among other Duke phrases. Like a real-life soundboard.
I don't know, I just think that DNF deserves a less conventional collector's edition. I imagine there's an unusually high percentage of people buying this game who would want a CE as opposed to most other games out there, so why not go all out?
Looks like a huge waste of money for a piece of plastic that will sit and do nothing.
If there's one thing these often-photoshopped pictures of all the contents of a Collector's Edition often portrays is to make the contents seem awfully larger than they actually are to scale.
All I really want is a tell all book about the long development, and why it took so long. If that is what the book included is, then i will be buying this. However, it looks like it is just an art book. While the art books are interesting for one flip through, I don't really want them in special bundles.
Here’s the full list of stuff in the Balls of Steel edition, as gathered by Shacknews:
- Collectible bust of the greatest ass-kicker of all-time
- Numbered limited edition certificate of authenticity 100-page hardcover book: 'History, Legacy & Legend: Duke Nukem Forever Art from the Vault'
- Duke Nukem Forever postcard series
- Duke Nukem Forever radioactive emblem sticker
- Duke Nukem Forever collectable comic book
- Duke Nukem Forever foldable paper craft
- Duke Nukem Forever poker chips
- Duke Nukem Forever mini-card deck
- Duke Nukem Forever radioactive emblem dice
It's nice to see that they forgot to include the actual game in the Balls of Steel Edition :P.
