If I had the money, the only thing I probably would've bought off of that list is The Kingdoms of Amalur special edition.

I was lucky enough to get the collector edition.

They said that all editions sold out.

Wasn't there only 100 editions every shipped out or something?

about 5000 regular. I guess 1300 collectors and about 300 signature.

My Troll figure (looking at it right now on my shelf) is marked 492 out of 1600. So if there is 300 Signature, then there must be 1300 Collector editions.
