  1. By now, we've all seen the Bioshock Infinite Special Edition and all of the neat goodies it comes with. I'm still bummed out that they didn't include the murder of crows bottle with it, but what good is moping around about it? Instead, I thought we should discuss the statue that does come included with the game. Namely, why I'm frightened by it. As I'm sure you're all aware, the original Bioshock had a similar statue included with its special edition. Let's just say things didn't go quite as planned when it hit store shelves. Read on to find out why you should be weary when purchasing this neat collectible. The History Of Bioshock Special Editions First of all, the original Bioshock special edition did something most game companies just don't seem to be capable of doing with their own special editions. It became rare. You couldn't find a cheaply-priced complete special edition to save your life. Immediately after the game's release, the special edition shot up in price to upwards of $100 and stayed there for years. Usually this is a good thing... unless you happened to be one of the many people who ordered your special edition from an online retailer. As snug as a smashed up bug in a rug! You see, the figures included with each special edition of the game had a tendency to be broken upon arrival. The main problem being that the Big Daddy's drill would be snapped off inside the box. If you were buying it in store you could look in the box and see if your figure was complete or not. Of course, people ordering online didn't have this same luxury. You pretty much just had to hope the one you got was complete. If not, you were just out of luck seeing as the special edition was long out of stock by that point. However, there was a reprieve for those who were patient. After all of the complaints about broken figures came out, 2KGames started a replacement program for customers. It only took nearly three months to get your product replaced. And people got a nice hardcover artbook for their troubles. The Possible Future Of Bioshock Special Editions This leads us to today and the announcement of the Bioshock Infinite special edition. I'm sure you've all seen the giant winged statue of awesomeness. Yeah, well think about those nice thin wings sitting in that special collector's case. Look! The wings already have holes in them! (this is a joke) The drill bit on the original Bioshock's Big Daddy figurine was attached to what I would believe was a pretty bulky part of the figure and it still managed to break off. These huge wings are supported by nothing. They're just out there. I'd like to think that they've learned their lesson with collector's edition statues after what happened with the original Bioshock, but every time I look at that statue, all I see is cracked wings and customer complaints. There has been word that the statue itself will be contained in it's own special box so all of this worry might be for nothing, but you should always take the company's past into consideration when spending upwards of a $150. Do you think we could be facing some trouble with these new Bioshock Infinite statues? They certainly look like they could be trouble with those fully spread-out wings. I might be hesitant because of past events, but I am tempted to take a chance and buy one myself. As always, thanks for reading.
