Is this it?

In this fine post I’ll show you what I have collected so far.

But before that a small news message: Now that the game will be coming out I probably will spent all my time in the game so there is a big chance that I won’t be updating it for a few weeks.

I split my collection up in 2 parts because it wouldn’t all fit in 1 picture, also I didn’t include any of the fan art or any clothing because those are still inside the plastic.

Let us start with all the artwork, this means poster like materials.

And after that we have all the other merchandise, goodies and magazines that Diablo appeared in.

With only a little less than 36 hours remaining for the launch here I really can’t wait to get my hands on it. Lucky for me I have the week off of work. For all of you who live in the Netherlands I’ll be going to the midnight launch in Rotterdam. I will be wearing this T-Shirt.

I wish all of the fans a good hunting!

As all of you saw when you first looked at the photo is that this is the Japanese manual of Diablo II. I browsed through it for a bit but I didn’t understand a thing, then I picked up my English copy of the manual and it went way better.

Finally, after a long long search I have it in my possession, the Diablo II zippo! The one I managed to find was one that has been used, so there are some scrapes on it. Taking into account that this item was given out at the same time as Diablo 2 came out over 10 years ago it’s no wonder there are some wear and tear marks on it. I’ll still keep my eye on a mind zippo but I wonder how long that’s going to take.

PS: Even when entering all the contests that are going on I still didn’t manage to get a beta key.

And here we have a sticker. This item was released back in the year 2000, so this was probably something that was done with the launch of the game.

Annnd, yup…Another magazine! Oh god how many do I have? Just one more. 🙂 Oh, and couldn’t you guess that it’s a horrible picture? Yup. Maybe some day I’ll fix all the pictures for everyone…So it all looks nicer. That’s a maybe. It’s not like no one can tell what they are, except the cards, lol.

I sent an email to you, Flux, for the awesome traffic pull-in that I’m getting (and thanks to fmulder for providing flux with my blog!). I went and saw the update on your site and was like “AWESOME!” Thanks a lot and I truly appreciate it!! And to that comment about never looking at the things and only leaving them in their containers…I do have interest in them :P. Hence why I would like to buy an extra copy of some of the things, such as the magazines or DnD books. I love the lore and history to Diablo and know much about it. I guess you can just say that I’m like one of those crazy Star Wars or Star Trek geeks…Get so caught up in the history, lore, and stuff that you just kind of move on with collecting it all. But it doesn’t seem to have happened to you with your knowledge of Diablo…lucky 😛

Now, I normally don’t post on Friday’s or Saturday’s (because I have to work all day…like I have to leave this house in about an hour and half) but because it seems today is my lucky day, due to Flux, I’m going to post today! woo! But probably not tomorrow…Boo!

The second magazine I got on Christmas is the one from Computer Gaming, dated for June, 2000. This is actually one of my favorite magazines just because of how it looks…The cool lightning effect, the weird looking “tainted” in the corner…Yeah it’s cool. This one doesn’t have the address label on it, but it is still in great condition. Plus, it has “obi-wan” in the corner. Maybe there should be a showdown for obi-wan vs. the sorceress. That would be an interesting sight!

If you thought that the Dungeons and Dragons part of the Diablo world was only in books…You’re wrong! They also had a board game set along with miniatures. If you don’t know about miniatures, D&D has thousands, if not millions, of different kinds of miniatures. Diablo II just happens to be another one of those that had miniatures made. I am still searching for the heroes box (oh no I just told you I don’t got that!)…I found a few on eBay, but lost the bids to people who sniped 19 times because they were too stupid to have a stuck price. It’s ridiculous how some people just can’t limit their budget. Anyway, here’s my brand new sealed monsters box set (for all of you stupid snipers, it’s only worth ~$30, not the $100 I’ve seen some of you pay off for it…The monsters, not the heroes):
