Probably some sort of promo prior to the game release. Not completely sure though. Check my post from previous page, there is one for sale on Ebay, but it's a bit different, red letters instead of orange and it also has an outer package as well.

 

Edit: Yeah, it says 'Russian Version', I assume that's the difference.

I think i may have found out , they are both retail version but the one with red letters has a slipcase included with it (a.k.a. a "Deluxe Edition") while the other one only has a jewel case . So , the one with orange letters is probably rarer just because it was exclusive to Russia . But , still , i've seen many non-russian versions on eBay popping up from the Russian Federation and no "Russian Editions" from Russia , so we may have to do a little more research . After that , i may create an article about them . :)

Does anyone have a spare GTA 4 promo grenade for sale? I saw one on eBay a few weeks ago and the seller kept relisting for around $400. I offered quite a bit and he would not take it stating that he "has a few of them." If you have one, please PM me as I am super interested! 

 

I wouldn't mind buying a Piswasser bottle too if anyone has one of those. I attempted to buy one in 2015 off eBay but because of customs and the bottle containing alcohol, the wouldn't let it through for some reason. https://imgur.com/v0QHA6i

Hey Zac, I think you'll be disappointed to discover that people, like yourself, on this thread here usually collect stuff rather than selling it. At least nowadays.

 

Good thing you created your own 'wanted merchandise' thread, but I wouldn't be surprised if no one comes along to offer you what you are after.

 

So, your best bet, like it's the case with all of us here, is simply to hope it will pop up on the eBay eventually. For the right price as well. 😄

Oh yeah, I remember seeing that paper weight grenade someone on the eBay, it was a hefty penny though. At about 500 USD, I'm sure Zac can buy it with his youtube money.

Haha, well, we all want to get ourselves a decent price, the one that's fair, no matter how much money we have 🤣

But in all honesty, GTA merchandise in particular is like, really sought after and as far as I can see eBay sellers are more than happy to take advantage of that, bloating prices madly.

I mean, the problem is, how the hell can we accurately determine whether something is really worth 100 or 200, or 500 bucks. It's tricky, but it doesn't cost anything always to ask.

Lol, take for example the "BIC Lighters, pretty popular here in Europe, doesn't cost more than a dollar, literally. GTA SA Bic lighter, 50 bucks, just because it has GTA logo on it. Who's to say it doesn't cost 2, or 20? Tricky indeed.

I agree! It never hurts to ask. Anything can be for sale for the right price haha. Someone might stumble across this post in a few months or years and be looking to sell some of their collection for whatever reason and here they will find tons of buyers!

I don't really have anything deemed "rare." Well I guess the Statue of Happiness is according to GTASeries collection video. But I've started seeing them pop up like crazy in 2018. The VCS & LCS double pack you don't see much of. I got it super cheap back in 2014. That's when I started collecting. 

 

I just purchased the GTA 4 hand grenade today actually and it'll be here next week sometime. I also have my eyes on a super cheap Claude figure.

Does anybody know how much the GTA IV [email protected] Mousepad is worth ? GTASeries rated it as "rare" but that's not very helpful to know what its monetary value is ...

I'd say this could be regarded as an honest price. Could as well be close to the original retail price. Then again, it's hard to say, but at least it could be regarded as something that's in close proximity of being rare, not quite truly rare, but somewhere around.

That double pack is regarded as quite rare. Actually, there's only NTSC/UC version, other regions never received their own version of the "Double Pack " edition. I've seen it couple of times on eBay and Amazon and the price was always around 100 USD. Funny thing 'cause years prior to their "shortage" it was going for 20 bucks. Sealed. Rockstar probably never released more than couple (hundreds) of thousand of these, hence its 'rarity'.

 

Even though I'm from PAL region, I was always a sucker for the NTSC PS2 design so my collecting OCD was forcing me to get them all. Lol. Back in the day when I first played those games, I used pirates ofc - yeah, guilty as charged - and buying them for cheap buck with jewel case and everything they would always come "wrapped" in that NTSC covers, regardless of my region, so it could be the root reason why I find them more appealing.

Nice! Yeah, I got my double pack back in 2014 for around $40. I had to have it to match the trilogy pack lol. My OCD wouldn't let it slide.

Thanks for answering ! By the way i also have some kind of OCD (for example i'd love to get both the Remix and Normal version of Midnight Club 3) . But what intrigues me the most is getting more than one version of any music album that has anything to do with R* (for example getting the CD Retail , Vinyl Retail and Vinyl Promo of the single "Wankers On Duty" by Da Hool which advertised GTA 2) .

A few of my pickups over the last couple weeks:

 

GTA 1 & 2 - GBC (both complete, good condition)

GTA III & Canis Canem Edit Promo Copies - Good and Excellent condition respectively

Manhunt (xbox) - Sealed

Manhunt 2 (ps2) - Sealed

Austin Powers: Welcome To My Underground Lair - (complete, good condition)

GTA 2 Dreamcast - (complete in good condition).

I'm very envious. Gameboy and Dreamcast GTA's are very cool. These are missing from my collection.

Lol still remember when that figure was on the warehouse, at 150 USD.  I, like you wanted to purchase it, broke at the time I passed on it. Seems these rarely pop up on evilbay. What else do you plan on purchasing?

Yeah, I was not financially able to purchase it in 2011. I wonder why Rockstar never released one for Tommy or CJ? This is the cheapest I have seen one go for in awhile. Most are listed for $1000 plus. I have my eyes on a Pisswasser bottle. I bought one in 2015 but because it was in the UK, customs wouldn't let it through.

Damn that’s cheap! I paid £700 for my sealed one last year which I think is around average.

 

How much did you pay for the grenade Zac? I’m looking for one too, no clue what I should be paying.

$300! If I recall the seller said he has multiple. I'll shoot him a message and see if he still does.

Never seen it, nor heard of it. Not a single logo or any other indication it's a video game merchandise let alone GTA. Judging by what seems to be real phone numbers and postcodes I'd say this has a greater chance of being real evidence bag rather than some collectible.

WOW people are that gullible to think that is official R* merch. Ive seen sellers post supposed  R* stickers for hundreds of dollars only find to that you can take the original ones and get copies to sell the fakes. idiots, but its also our fault, we dont teach collectors to stop purchasing expensive stuff on there. Too overvalued for the most simplest thing.
