I think the GTA V Headphones would look better leaning up on the library's side rather that laying down .

^ that’s pretty cool, quite pricey but I doubt there are too many around, especially complete in good condition. Not one for me for now tho.

This press kit is pretty interesting (maybe just a little expensive) :

https://www.mercari.com/us/item/m84571245520/?ref=search_results

 

Bigger question guys, to all collectors in here @Phaston @Chazza354 @uNi DO YOU think R* has replicas of these things at their offices, Im talking about press kits, merch, concept hardware, from every single title they have released etc. Well old devs taking these things to sell them later thats the only reason these things end up on the hands of people that dont really deserve it. If I were R,* I would be purchasing or sending out cease or desist letters to get all these things back all these things back. Its still intellectual property. It might be old sh*t, but its part of their history. I wonder if they have a warehouse to store all these things. I wonder who has all the concept writing in their hands

I agree that it's still their intellectual property , but i actually think Rockstar doesn't care about these press kits . After all , they've not released games like this recently , so it would be useless for them to get the kits back . Maybe they would get them back if it they were press kits for an upcoming or unreleased games . If they really care about something they get it back immediately usually . But maybe they still might have some press kits that they keep in some kind of archive (they still have a Bully Skateboard at their R* North offices) . After all of this , i think that developers selling press kits or development kits is great for both collectors and beta hunters .

I doubt rockstar makes ‘replicas’ of their promotional merch/press kits etc but it’s quite possible they keep a sample or two of each piece for archiving or something.

 

I don’t think they’d keep enough to the point where devs could get away with stealing without being caught. 

 

In general I think these listings come from game journalists/companies who have kept press kits and other materials that they’re sent to promote the game - I know a journalist who makes a bit of extra cash by selling the promo copies/press kits he gets to collectors. 

 

I think rockstar would be likely to blacklist your company from receiving promotional materials if they realised it was all going on eBay, but they’ve got far bigger fish to fry than worrying about a 10+ year old games press kit/concept book etc being sold.

No way in hell that's official.

Ok , thanks for clarifying . I only thought it was official because knowing all the marketing stunts Rockstar has done , i wouldn't be surprised if something like this but original and authorized .

Hahah, I barely clarified anything, I just can't see this being related to Max Payne in any way hence my doubts it is official in that sense - meaning - no way R* would release this as some kind of MP promo. On the other hand, who ever released this had to get some kind of authorization from R* I assume, 'cause otherwise they would violate owners rights.

Actually , considering it is listed as a CD-R (Recordable Compact Disc) it is probably just unofficial (like many other releases on Discogs) . My only doubt is : why would Discogs let people sell it if it's unofficial , which they usually don't ?

Not sure what to make of it, really. Bottom line, even as a huge fan of Max Payne, especially the first one, I wouldn't be interested. Looks totally unrelated.

Can I ask why this jacket says "green" on the torso?
https://www.ebay.ca/itm/Very-Rare-Grand-Theft-Auto-V-Official-Leather-Varsity-Jacket-Golden-Bear-Large/283258515470?hash=item41f385f00e:g:Gc0AAOSwk-9bv8qG

 

some of the other jackets have different things there, or none at all...

I've thought about it and here's my theory : firstly , let's point out that these jackets (from what i know) are only given away in official Rockstar Games Contests (mostly contests centered around Snapmatic or the Rockstar Editor) .

After this , let's acknowledge that these prized often have the winner's name engraved . My deduction is very simple , actually : "Green" is probably just the R* Social Club username of the winner . Tell me what you think about it .

 

Edit : i've read the description and it states that this jacket was given away to Rockstar Games staff and devs who worked on the game , so "Green" might just be the nickname (or even name or surname) of the person it was given to .

Trying to get a RDR2 Zippo Lighter seems impossible now... out of stock everywhere, and an assh*le is bidding on 3 units available for sale on EBay for FU*KING 500 DOLLARS. What is wrong with people? He even made an fake account to retract bidding on his original account and bid again. Jeez. If anyone knows where to find an unit, and ships outside USA, please let me know. Thanks

I also hate those scalpers ... the dude who's buying three of them is probably going to try to sell them at double the price or more ... hope he just damages himself economically when they come out on the Warehouse , just like what happened with the NES and SNES classic .

It never was in stock? Unless you bought it through EBgames or Gamestop?

From what I understand, R* is drip-feeding these items on the Rockstar Warehouse and this is the first time it has been available there?
