GamerSushi Asks: Gaming Paraphernalia?

play arts kai halo reach

Recently, I’ve become a little obsessed with Play Arts Kai’s line of Halo: Reach action figures, having bought Emile and scouring the city for the past month for Jun and Noble 6, the other two available figures in the current series. While I haven’t really been that into gaming doodads, purchasing the Orange Knight from Castle Crashers during my trip to PAX Prime and picking up the Halo: Reach Legendary Edition has kind of kindled my interest in collecting various pieces of memorabilia.

My geography has once again put me at a disadvantage as Square Enix only accepts American credit cards, but I’ve tracked down a few distributors and I’m planning on getting the whole set. It’s interesting because before this I thought that buying statues related to gaming was taking my hobby a bit to far, but some of the things you can get are pretty freaking sweet.

Do any of you share my current fixation? Do you have any figures currently, or are you planning on getting some? What’s the farthest you’ve gone to acquire something like this?

  1. I have become increasingly more interested in things like that. I own both Halo 3 and Reach Legendary editions, a framed Mass Effect 2 poster, a huge framed concept art of Thane from ME2 (signed by the artist and numbered, 434/500), signed Halo 3 (from PAX), and recently signed Psychonauts by Tim Schafer himself, addressed to me by my first name! (I nearly passed out when I saw it). After PAX my appetite was whet for this stuff more than ever, and although I’m not too much into figures, I’m a sucker for statues, helmets, and signed stuff lol.

  2. The only thing I own is one of the ME2 N7 hoodies. I wear it all the time, but I’ve never seen anyone else with one. Probably because I had to get it shipped from the US to Australia.

  3. Oh man, I want some Final Fantasy figure so bad, I just wish they weren’t so expensive. The only real gaming stuff I’ve got is the Halo helmet, and a couple of Mario figures I keep on my desk at work. Sometimes I people with a crazy amount of stuff and I want to steal all of it.

  4. I’ve got a Master Chief figure (with an MA5B), a stuffed Mario and a Fallout t-shirt a la Insert Coin Clothing. I’ve got some cash to spare so I was thinking of visiting the Bioware store sometime. N7 hoodie! Also, posters and lithos.
