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!

I really don’t feel like taking a picture of this, so I’ll just show you a picture from the Internets, lol. The current one I have now is for reading purposes, and I’ll get a “near mint” one later to collect.  Notice anything about this cover and the last D&D book I have on the collection news? Try putting them together =O

Unverified: #22: Some Collector’s Cards

Yeah it’s been awhile since I posted another part of my collection. But I’ve been busy working, programming, making a website, and being sick all at once. Oh the stress…Probably why I’m sick.

Anyways, Blizzard gave this small company up in Canada some artwork and let them put it onto some exclusive collector’s cards. There are a total of six, and the store would use them back when Diablo II was released, giving them out to lucky people who visited the store (or something like that, I  forgot). They recently put the cards up for sale as a set, and I grabbed myself one.

Forgive me for the blurry picture – I’m too sick to work on making a good one, lol.


Verified: #20: Diablo Book 1 – Legacy of Blood

I actually have all eight books made for the world of Sanctuary, and yes I have read them all (how else would I know all that lore?). But I am not going to show each individual book unless they are equivalent to this one. “Oh, but what do you mean?” Well here’s what…Just check out the pictures and see for yourself!

Yup…I got the book with Richard A. Knaak’s autograph. I have also exchanged emails with him (which is actually how I got the signature in the first place) and he’s a really nice guy. Of course, it’s not possible to get him to give me a secret or two on the world of Sanctuary (probably contracts and all that good stuff)…But hey, I don’t blame him. This book is in mint condition and is currently stored in an “archival box” wrapped in archival tissue. Basically the stuff prevents this book from ever wearing out, so it doesn’t get rigged from high humidity, doesn’t somehow rip, or discolor from age, etc. I have three boxes (each able to hold two books) read to go for more books. Yup, I’m going to bug him for some more signed books in the future, lol.
