There's like a high quality one, that's the one on the post above, and there's some cheap ones on ebay. 

 

The one I have is the one from ebay, but is still nice.

Speaking of custom made merchandise, I remember when Ash made that Pibwasser Beer hat replica. I'm actually putting together the materials and have the files to make one. When it's done, I will probably post it here.

I own a sealed copy also, but it is the UK version, it's has a slipcover and inside it's like a book. As a fun fact, I found it in Japan!

It's my favorite game, I wish I could buy this US version also.

I'm not into sealed items, I get why the value and all but I like to open stuff up.

Same. For a few select items, like my domino set, I felt like just keeping them sealed.

@uNi @just do it bob1 Always hard deciding what to open and what to keep sealed right? I can’t justify opening something that I have sealed unless it’s of a lower value and have more than one, but then again you’re missing out if you don’t!

 

One of the bonuses with the majority of rockstars merchandise I suppose, it’s either in plain plastic, in a packaging which has a window, or has a tag on the top portion and the rest is in a clear bag below, obviously most of the promos had no outer packaging to worry about.

 

I do have items such as the various playing cards that are sealed, but have no idea what they look like on the inside in all honesty. Some pictures from you guys if you have them opened would be appreciated :)

@GTACollections are you talking about the RDR2 collectors box playing cards?

@just do it bob1 Any of them to be honest, I’ve had a pack of opened GTAIII ones, and opened a pack of the black SA ones, but not seen the difference between the black and white SA cards, if any, or the GTAIV ones, or the red dead originals and deluxe packs, or as you say the RDR2 collectors ones.

 

Apart from the cards there’s not many Grand Theft Auto items I can think of that are completely hidden in a packaging, I have a red dead revolver bandana that’s wrapped and sealed in a newspaper - no idea what it looks like, who’s to say there’s even one in there! 😂

Hahah, now that's a proper temptation 🤣 

 

I have a few games that are sealed and one of the reasons I bought them is exactly that, but I have always had a crush for PS2 NTSC Black Labels and it was imperative to get them sealed, kinda more official, so there's that as well.

 

I feel sorry for opening a few items, but I couldn't resist. On the other hand, some of them I would never open. Go figure.

@ChengizVlad09 I know right? Shame I don’t have another! 😅 

 

Yes I have always loved the sealed black label games too, would love to have the full set sealed, plus a few other double and triple packs 😉

I don’t actually have any of the older games sealed, I think I left it too late to start collecting them in all honesty, especially with the prices they fetch currently.

But then again, even now when I have the opportunity to, I wouldn’t go out and buy every edition of V available, on each platform and every region type, just to keep sealed 🤪

Red Dead Revolver bandana !? Never heard about that one ... do you know its origins ? 🤔

@Phaston A Capcom exclusive promo only available in Japan I believe from the packaging. I’ve never seen a picture online of an open one, so as I say, who’s to say what’s in there?! 😂

Recently I received a few items I bought from @GTACollections, three of them were a gift but I won't say which, haha. Check them out here. I'm really happy with the purchase, GTACollections is a great seller.

I take advantage of this post to show you a few more items I own, I'm sorry for the bad quality pictures tho.
- Games. Most of them are sealed, excepting GTA III, Read Dead Revolver and the two Max Payne titles. There's also the UK limited edition steelbook of the Max Payne movie, only 2000 were sold. Usually I try to get the special or collector's edition for each game, and if there isn't any, I look for the most complete one (in terms of in-game and box content). I used to play on PlayStation and PC, so I don't collect games for XBOX or other consoles unless the game is available for that platform only.  
- Soundtracks. All them are sealed excepting Vice City's Greatest Hits one. I have this GTA III LP record also. I've paid only 15 USD for GTAV's music, yes, 15! It's the CD collection which comes with the 8GB gold bar USB flash drive. I'm missing San Andreas and Vice City big boxes, but hey, I'll find them! You can see the Japanese DVD with San Andreas' introduction in the first picture, I heard it is a high quality version of the movie, but I can't tell since my laptop hasn't a drive bay and I don't want to open the DVD yet. 😂
- Vice City related stuff. VC and VCS are probably my favorite games, I am missing a lot of items at the moment, but this is a start. Everything you see there is sealed, excepting the stirrers.

 

I am also the proud owner of this SALEEN S302 DUB EDITION, of course it's a RC toy, haha. It's still new but unfortunately the previous owner cut the box in one of the corners. It's a replica made after that one seen in Midnight Club Los Angeles, there is even a trailer for this car. They made a real life version also, but I don't know who is the owner or if it still exists.

I own more items which aren't in the pics above, but here is a list with what I own. I'll try to take HD pictures someday and add pictures for each.

It's gone, that was quick!

I guess I like sealed items because when I stop to think about their release date and things like that I get back in time somehow, and I don't feel so old! 
I'm pretty sure I'll open all my games someday, I hope my future kids will like vintage games, haha. I don't know, probably I will record each unboxing to remember all them. 😂

I remember a few years ago I found an auction where they were selling a CD with skins for Tommy, it was saying "Vice City skin CD" or something like that, it came in a jewel case. I think there were two versions, one for EB Games and another one for GAMESTOP. Does anyone know more about those items?

Yeah, I heard of this. Um it was a pre-order exclusive for these retailers. Tommy had another "Set" of clothes, Same as the Hawaiian shirt and jeans. well this set had a red hawaiian shirt, grey jeans, grey colored hair. See Gta Series videos  on their VC beta video they talk about that.

There are a few rare items on eBay Germany for a good price:

- GTA IV Statue of Hapiness. The bid starts on 49.99 EUR.
- GTA IV Swingers foam hand. The bid starts on 65 EUR.

If anyone is interested, try your luck contacting the seller to see if he's willing to ship internationally. It worked for me.
Please note PayPal isn't so famous in Germany when it comes to eBay, consider seller's feedback before buying.

Well, I'm back after going through literally hell and back after like 3 weeks. 

 

On a side note actually related to this topic, I went to literally a bunch of stores and game outlets trying to find some of the RDR outlaw essentials stuff, and no one had anything.

What really started pissing me off is when I contacted one, and they literally said that they had the R* stickers and Pins from the RDR essentials collection. Funny enough (not funny at all actually) is when I got there, they checked the back and the guy said, "oh I thought we had it in the system" or whatever he said. Left a solid review on google for them. You tell me you have it because the system tells you that you have it, but you never checked the back to confirm that it was right? You made me drive 35min just to tell me that you made a really idiotic mistake?  :sarcasm:

Hey, it's good to see you over here again! If you're lucky you may find some of those items online for a good price.

 

Check this out people. I don't know if you're collecting merchandise of other Rockstar Games titles, I do, that item is extremely rare I suppose. I wish I could afford that.

 

By the way @mosavon, take a look to this.

I i don't recall wrongly , that "bracelet" was also sent in press kits together with the Wii version and some shirts . So what you're really paying for here are the robes . And , by the way , i think it would be nice if Rockstar released costumes/cosplay kits for more of their games .

 

Also , i always found those leashes pretty funny since i found out about them because they were used to advertise a game where dogs or any other animals (except flying rats) never actually appear .

You're correct about the wrist band, I own one actually. Anyway, the surgical mask and the costume are nice, I didn't know they exist.
Maybe the dog we see there is related somehow to the manufacturer of the flex cuffs and not the game itself. I suppose that's an edition sponsored by Rockstar Games to promote GTA IV, I can't tell.

I dont think this is real bidding, the private bidder is 0 feedback, the winning bidder is probably connected to the seller in some way aswell, otherwise why are they bidding over £500.

I guess you are right, it cannot be worth that much.

/\ don't people do that to raise the market value of the item or something? i.e. so when they sell that same item on a different account, they sell it for like 65% less and make it seem like you are getting a deal? or am I wrong?
