$170 is way too much for those. With proper scans, the WANTED poster can be easily printed lol.

Sure, overpriced, but I'd like to stand in Fireman's defence here just a bit. I don't know what drove License Plates prices crazy as of lately on Ebay in particular, but increase is obvious.

I've been monitoring prices there for almost 3 years now, and GTA IV LP is the one of the items whose price jumped the most, almost doubling in 80 percent of the times there.

I also remeber seeing some crazy prices for those wanted posters in the distant past -up to 200$ for set of 4, even though as of recently they've started appearing there in significant numbers now.

I just link it, I don't buy it :p
 

Compared to others it's the only actual complete one for very similar prices. Deiniftely seems like it's gone up.

Lol, I didn't read through it all, I thought you were selling it :)

Nevertheless the point still stands. I do wonder what exactly does it make so expensive these days,

what ever it is, it seems unjustified.

There's not so much GTA IV merchandise out there, that might be an answer maybe.
170$ for (an incomplete bundle since it's missing the "I<3LC" pin) seems out of place, but I'm pretty sure there is someone who might buy it for the rarity (I once paid 200$ for the NECA Gordon Freeman figure, so yeah)

Along with made up astronomical prices of these License Plates, nothing aggravates me more than seeing ppl stating in their ebay descriptions that Niko's plate is somewhat rarer. I have no idea on what exactly that might be based. Notice the title describing that one: "Ultra Rare". Bull. $hit. Ridiculous.

Just for the record, I've paid mine - GTA IV Plate, slightly less than 30 Euros. With shipping included and I think I have never paid less for shipping- around 13 Euros.

'' Whether you actually put this on your car or display prominently on a collector's shelf, nothing else will scream true fan like this.'' - this made me cringe...

Also, there is someone selling his VC license plate for 93$!!!

https://www.ebay.com...5.c100005.m1851 <-- This is rarer and sold for less, I'm in tears

Cringy stuff indeed. Yeah, that one certainly seems to be rarer and no matter where I used to look for any kind of info about it, I found nothing.
I don't know why, but this license plate always seems to finds it's owners in Italy - it even has the address of some Italian site on it. This is definitely strange, since this is the 3 one I saw that is being sold from there. Not sure what to say about this one though, but I remember when I first saw it, I thought it was unofficial merchandise.

Subjectively I'd say its price is still off for about 30 bucks, what you think? Assuming it's official merch...

 

Edit:

Just googled that site https://www.cidiverte.it/ and it seems that they are actually a store oriented in selling Rockstar, T2 and 2K games only, among some other unrelated stuff. Now, it is highly likable that they actually made that license plate as their promo back in the day, no wonder there's no R* logo anywhere on it. That seems pretty " unofficial " if you ask me... in that case insert " Best I can do is 3.50 " meme.

Nice find dude! But as you said it better, (found a more suiting meme):

I absolutely forgot to show you this treasure.

This is GTA III Soundtrack Sampler made for Game Republic magazine, which was issued in Italy. It has the same contents as the rest known samplers, but on a different ultra rare disc.

Hey Vadim, are you sure it's France? I did some searching and Game Republic was an Italian magazine not French, plus we have already seen that ' CIDIVERTE '- stamped on the CD - is an Italian gaming store, almost exclusively selling T2, R* and 2K games and is somehow tied to them? Perhaps you have anything related to Cidiverte?

Uh, my mistake. Fixed. Thanks!

Yes, I do, but I will post this stuff a little bit later.

No problem my man! If you have anything you'd like to share, whether it being a game or any kind of memorabilia and merchandise feel free to check out officially dedicated subforum for that:

http://gtaforums.com...and-discussion/

We are having some kind of classification process going on and this one will surely be a part of it!
Cheers!

Saw the GTA 3 LP Promo here.

Don't know if it's worth it or if it's really that rare, onions?
