Rockstar Warehouse's Black Friday Hoots

Just realised how many Assassin's Creed themed posts I blogged about in the past 2 months. It has been a great couple of weeks. Week after week, there has been some AC collectible or another making it's way to my doorstep. But now that the AC fever has died down, and I have already posted a pic of my entire Assassin's Creed IV Collection, there won't be anything AC related coming in for quite a while.

I'm going to try not to post anything Assassin's Creed related for a while now. Don't get me wrong, I still love Assassin's Creed but I think we all need something else to talk about for now.

So let's move on to some Grand Theft Auto stuff! 

Here's some of my hoots from Rockstar Warehouse's Black Friday Sales!

Here's the GTA III 10th Anniversary Knuckleduster Mug..

I actually got 3 of these. The others were for 2 crew members in Temasek Thugs. There was a little concern if this would actually pass through customs due to the metal knuckleduster attached, but thankfully there were no problems. The knuckleduster can't be removed anyway so not a danger I guess.

Comes in a nice display box.. 

Too nice that I have yet to remove the mug from the box.

Closer look at the handle..

Nice glossy finish to the mug..

The other 2 guys that I helped are already talking about how they are going to use it in their respective offices. It is a very cool mug and probably would make for a good conversation-starter. Not judging anyone.. but if you know me, you will know mine will remain untouched in a display cabinet.. ;)

I also got these lithos..

Limited Edition lithographs of the EU Cover Art (left) and US Cover Art (right) of the GTA III game back in the day.

Closer look at the EU version..

and the US Cover..

Both limited to 500 and numbered..

Unfortunately, during shipping both lithos have had severe bends on 1 side. Even though, I have tried hard to fix it. It still shows quite prominently in the pics. It's definitely bugging me as I keep noticing it whenever I look at it. It has ruined an otherwise fascinating pair of lithographs.

Apart from that, these are nice, cool additions to my GTA Collection. Wish they had continued making Lithographs of the other GTA games. Would have been awesome for my wall!
