This time, it was the Games Workshop, Space Marines Codex: Ultima Edition. (Only 129 left, get yours NOW! LOL)
And because I am finding it funnerer and funnerer to do videos, I made you all a great little video unboxing of the package. I really didn’t do a video, it's more a like a slideshow with narration, but I have been pretty sick lately and I didn't want anyone to catch anything viral from my video... So, without further ado, here is the video I made, for you's guys...
After the break, there is a all the pictures and the text review for those who hate youtube, or videos or both.
All in all, I have to say I am not disappointed with the product, nor do I think it is worth the $250. I think $200 would have been stretching it a bit. But product wise, it's very cool. High production value and lots of little extras. Not as much as a forge world book, but not too bad.
So, here is the break, and off we go into the pictures...
|Not for children, only for adults with more $$ than sense!!|
|Yeah, $250 smackers... right in da kisser. Kinda like getting gut punched by a small kid when you don't expect it.|
|Hey... that looks pretty cool. Hang on a minute!!|
|Rear Cover Art|
|Front Cover Art|
The front cover art (and rear from the next shot) are very nice. The entire case is coated with something that feels like rubber, it makes it feel hefty (which it is) and solid. Very nice presentation!
Lets jump into the books, shall we?
The Illuminatus is next. This is a collection of the codex and Space Marine art from various places. Very cool, all the art is attributed and some of it is very, very cool. Another inspirational book.
|Note the black edge binding, a very cool touch|
The codex, the heart of the matter is next. It is a very nice edition, with a bookmark (lol :) and some very nice black edge binding. I should note that the overleaf of every book is imprinted with some enchanting words from everyones favorite rotting god, the Emperor of Mankind! <cheeers.... Cheeeeers> The book is very sturdy, like most of their products and seems to be the same as the others released. Will have to wait a bit to compare it.
Last, but certainly not least, the Galaxis.
So, there you have it! The ultimo edition in video and pictures.
See ya soon!!!
