Diablo 3 Reaper of Souls Launch Event and my Goodie Bags

Alright, so I went down to the Diablo 3 Reaper of Souls Launch Event for Singapore over at Shaw House earlier today.

Some of you would know that you guys helped me win some Goodies!

2 Goodie Bags!

Each bag contained a Funko Pop Figurine

1 of Diablo..

and 1 of Tyrael..
These are my first ever Funko Pop figurines.. Never got into collecting these but maybe these could be the start? Not really my taste but they look pretty cool, especially if you have several of them.

I'll take more pics of these figures in the next few days.

Also included in each bag was a Gachapon figure

Little balls..

I thought I was supposed to open these to find a little figure inside but..

These balls actually turrn out to be..

Their heads! So, actually the body was inside the ball. You had to open it into 2 parts and then fix it back again onto the body. Interesting!

Don't think I have ever heard of or seen these figures before. I wonder if there are other characters made in this style. A quick google search brought up images of all kinds of weird Japanese toys but no ball-headed figures.. Hmm..

Anyway... There were T-Shirts in the bag too!

Gave 1 to my brother! Shirt quality's pretty decent but I don't think I will be wearing these out.

Last but not the least.. A discount voucher!

There is a 15% voucher in it but it's only limited to certain Dell XPS Series and Alienware Series products. I actually plan to invest in a new gaming rig for my new house but sadly the voucher is valid only until 30 April 2014. Too bad..

For attending the Launch Event, I also got a Poster and a Lanyward with the Event Schedule.

I'm not sure if I was supposed to tear off the stubs at the bottom for the Lucky Draw. I only realised that when the Lucky Draw started and they were drawing similar looking stubs. 

If I was indeed supposed to enter those into the Lucky Draw, then I would like to say a big Thank you to the folks at the registration counter. You guys were so helpful in letting me know that I was supposed to enter my stubs for the Lucky Draw. (Insert Sarcasm).

I have heard a lot of complaints about the way Asiasoft handles their Launch Events but this is the first time I have experienced it.  I had to ask 3-4 people before they realised that I was there to collect my prize. There are a couple more things but I'll refrain from turning this into a bashing post.

On a more positive note, Michael Chu, the Senior Game Designer at Blizzard was there to answer a few questions, including how much he loved Pizza!

The cosplayers..

I'm not very familiar with the cosplay scene but I think I have seen the lady in the last pic at STGCC 2013.. I might be wrong.

Michael Chu also did some autographs but unfortunately I had to rush off. :(

Anyway, all the goodies again..

Ahh yes.. There was also a bottle of Mountain Dew but I gulped in down soon after I came home. What a hot day!

I'll post more pics of the figures and of course.. The Reaper of Souls' Collector's Edition in the next few days.

Once again, thanks to you guys for helping me get these goodies!
