This arrived in the post today and all I can say is Holy Cow! The postman’s fingers must’ve disintegrated as he handed it over. This is ten pounds worth of awesome in a two pound box.
First, let us use the ever-reliable paperback to thingy ratio!
Fairly decent in size, and get a load of that box art. I’m primed for this figurine to come bursting out of its box in a hail of bullets! Now, let’s have a look at the contents, shall we?
Ok, maybe not. Still a pretty sweet looking statue, though. However, the arrival of this piece of shiny stuff has raised important questions. Should I open the box, thus releasing its awesomeness on my house and lowering it’s re-sale value? Or should I lay it to one side and eBay it later? If it’s untouched and unsullied I could make a small fortune. Probably the price of a small car…
NO! The box cannot contain this incredible figure!
Man, that looks cool! Sam comes with his own stand and his own gun – although it doesn’t happen to perform in the same Swiss Army fashion as in the game. Still looks excellent, though. This bad boy is destined for the sideboard – and honour I recently granted to the framed picture of PopCap’s John Vechey. And that’s saying something.
