    You need the Whiskey glass filled full when you notice the amount gone from your bank account if you purchase the Blaster Edition :LOL::rofl:

    Ha. It's funny some consider the UK to be "spoilt" with collectors editions and the like...not just blu ray but also video game wise. Personally I think the fact we pay more and receive less (like for example the Ni No Kuni Wizard Edition loosing two items, the OST and Gold Coin) we really get s*** on.

    Do you think this has to do with gun laws or something? You know what it's like with these things...I remember not being able to purchase a Gears of War lancer years ago because of the laws set in place within the UK...despite the fact there's no God damn way you could hold someone at gun point with it.

    I'm hoping the gun edition will be made available to the UK at some point.

    I'm hoping the gun edition becomes available in Australia but I don't see if happening there are not as much limited editions available as there used to be and it just makes this so much hard to have due to customs,unless someone or company gets stock and sells in Australia I think my chances of have the gun edition are slim.

    It's funny you say that about not being many limited editions as there used to be...I was thinking the exact same the other day.

    I used to collect quite a bit of them, the Inception brief case edition, Back to the Future tin box, Sin City, From Dusk til Dawn, Lion King wooden box, Breaking Bad barrel, Scarface, the Alfred Hitchcock Ultimate Collection Kickass and so on...now it just doesn't feel there's that many or maybe there is but they get split up into very specific regions where shipping is a pain (that god damn Marvel Phase 2 collection for example).

    The Blade Runner 2049 gun and Terminator 2 Judgment Day hand are nice surprises but I guess with how much they are it's one of those things where we really need to see the quality of them

    Yeah, we certainly pay the price for having decent editions over here... even the crap ones are stupidly expensive compared to other countries.

    I hadn't considered that, but you could very well be right... I know in the past they've had to make it blindingly obvious that a replica gun is indeed fake by making the barrel bright orange. Says a lot when their only other option is to give us a whiskey glass though... "guns are bad, but alcoholism is perfectly fine" lol.

    I won't be surprised if the blaster edition doesn't turn up over here anyway, and even if it does, it'll no doubt cost twice as much as it does in other countries!

    TBH I quite like the glasses, would like the blaster aswell but for £39.99 two whiskey glasses is good value.

    Thanks for the update and visuals Paul !
    I ordered from Zavvi, was not expecting this one to sold out so fast, i already preordered the french blaster edition, but this one goes so well with my director's cut johnnie walker.
