I'm quite a sucker for steelbooks, soundtracks, artbooks and other extra goodies that come with some special editions of games and movies (discs forever; digital can't match that). But I've never cared much for figurines and other stuff that come with various collector's editions.
Have to say though, The Dead Island Riptide Zombie Bait Edition gave me some pause and I kinda want it, even though I'm ired of everything that contains zombies, so I don't care for the game itself. It's just a nicely sick piece of deviant scultpure even though it was probably created only to get into the headlines.
Needless to say, the edition caused quite a bit of controversy, and game magazines were racing to find the best insult for anyone who felt anything but disgust for it; never mind for anyone who'd dare to buy it. Well, I still like it. I think.
In a fairly adorable detail, the bikini came with different flags, so you can have a version with Union Jack or Le Tricolore if you feel (anti-)patriotic. I've not seen any other variants. Personally I've always thought the UK flag looks extra cute on a bikini.
