Cyberbots Limited Edition

I recently bought that Cyberbots Limited Edition. I already had the normal version in my collection and since it's a very great game with awesome animations, ridiculous lush graphics and the Capcom playability we are all used to, I decided that I need this Limited Edition aswell. I always wondered what's in it, and after seeing several pictures of what I thought was the box, I was quite enthused. "Damn, it comes with a model kit?", I thought. Well... it doesn't. The thing I saw was actually just the book, which is in the box and its cover is designed like a model kit box. Still a great item in my opinion and there's also that weird pop-up sheet thing, which many of you may know from their childhood. It was a bit hard to unfold so my photo is unfortunately not very good. Anyway, they give a little impression of what's in the box and they might be helpful for everyone, who always wondered what's actually in it.

The book is really nice by the way. It contains a lot of great pictures, development concept art, pictures of Cyberbots merchandise and even a sheet of music along with the lyrics. It's 48 pages heavy and even interesting for people who don't speak or read japanese. Go grab it, I saw it on ebay for less than 30 EUR (= 43 USD; 21 GBP)!

You continue to amaze us, dear Elend. :)

The Japanese sure were a bunch of lucky bastards, having all those great special editions while we were limited to the regular versions.

Fortunately nowadays it's indifferent. Right now I'm waiting for the limited edition of a certain game to arrive :) Hopefully I will have it before Christmas (no, it's not Saturn related, it's a recently released 360 game)

Lovely little item you have there elend! And I agree dear Nebachadnezzar, those Japanese are indeed lucky bastards! (We love our Japanese brothers BTW!)

hm I've never heard of that game. I wish I could grab some import games for my Saturn. I'm afraid I will mess mine up if I try to mod it, and I don't have the money for an Action Replay yet...

elend said...

Save some money then. Action Replays are not THAT expensive. A mod is kinda messy and not for everyone and a japanese Saturn can cost up to 80 USD. Better buy a 20 bucks Action Replay or ST Key. :D

You know what Nick? I've got a spare action replay cartridge kicking about in Krishna Towers! If you want I'll mail it to you just send me your mailing address!

:O sure that would be great Father K!!! I'll PM you it on Planet Dreamcast.
@elend Action Replays are sort of expensive for me, I'm in high school right now, I can't work and maybe make $20 a month.

You sure you don't have a third one, dear Father? I could use one right now... :P
