I was just reading another site and there was a thread about collectors editions and I wanted to ask you guys what you thought about Collectors editions.
I personally don't really like them, I don't like the toys and the big boxes take up some significant space and don't look good on the shelf as display pieces as they don't generally match. However I do like in game items and will generally fork out for the collectors edition of a game if there are exclusive items.
The only collectors edition I've bought where the stuff was any good was GTA4 I still use the lock box and bag.
My friend on the other hand works FIFO and has far too much money he seems to buy every collectors item that he finds. because he works away I pick up his packages. Ive told him its mostly worthless junk but he still continues to buy it on the basis that he thinks it might be worth money in the future...or something.
So are collectors editions and collectables actually cool or are they a total scam.
