Want To Get Those Hard To Find Video Game Collector’s Editions? Check Out These Local Sellers

Video game collector’s editions have been rising in popularity over the past few years. Once ignored for their absurd prices, these packages containing figures and other game-related paraphernalia are now flying off the shelves, with some even being scalped for a handsome profit.

The most obvious solution here is to purchase these directly from local retailers when they post pre-orders for the said collector’s editions. Stores such as Gameline, Datablitz, and Game One PH offer these sought-after collector’s editions straight from the publishers and regional suppliers, which ensures you get the items at regional SRP. Sadly, the selection can be quite limited at times, and there are some titles with collector’s editions that don’t make it to our shores for whatever reason.

One way to go about it is to directly order from the publisher sites but since these are usually based in the US or Europe, you’ll have to deal with international shipping or have a forwarder bring home the goods.

To rid yourself of the hassle, there are some local sellers that can do the orders for you, oftentimes taking care of everything until it gets shipped to the Philippines where you can just coordinate to either pick it up or have it delivered to your place for a small premium in exchange for the service.

Sounds tempting? Here are some local sellers that you can look into to scratch that collector itch!
