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!

To be honest i still haven’t read the article about Diablo in this magazine, so it’s still nice and mint. I usually get all my info from fan sites and forums so I don’t think I missed anything. This magazine came out late last year as the holiday version of the PC Gamer. And they even tell you how to get your stuff back!

This is a magazine I found on eBay and didn’t even know existed till then, so I just ordered it. It’s mostly about Diablo 2 but there is also a mention of Diablo 1, Warcraft 2 and Starcraft in the magazine.

And as you can see there is also a DVD inside and there was some surprising video on. At first I thought it was only the cinematics of Diablo 2 but then I found a 2end audio channel with the creators commentary on it.

For those of you that are interested in watching the DVD as well here are some links.

The files were removed from the server I had them on!

After you have downloaded them all you have to extract them with 7z.

After that you have 2 options, either extract the file again to get the normal DVD files or mount the image and read it with a program like deamon tools.
If you are not a experienced user with mounting images i suggest you just extract it twice.

Another awesome magazine with Diablo on it…But this time Diablo III. It does have WoW on it (darn) but the main story is obviously Diablo III, so I’m all up for it. This is the last of the magazines I have for Diablo. There are about 3 on my list of searchings, but they’ll have to wait. One of them I can’t even find right now, but I’ll manage to get it. So what’s the next item I’m going to show (tomorrow)? Nothing rare…In fact, probably the easiest thing to get for Diablo.

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!

So it’s time to post up my Christmas gifts this year. I knew I’d get more magazines! I was supposed to get 1 more, but it got lost in the mail or something. It’s really too bad, too…I’ll just have to put up a search for it. 🙂

So, I’m going to go in order from the dates of the magazines I got. The first one of the ones I got was back in 1999, July (read the title, right?).

It still has the original address label on it, hence the big black box. I know there are spammers and such that come along in this blog so I don’t want any bad people getting that address (I don’t know if it’s still an active address, but who wants to risk it, right?). He should be very happy that I’m being nice enough to block it, lol.

There are two posters for Diablo that were released in certain magazines, although I do not know which ones…And I’m not bound to go opening these up and searching through them just to find out. If I do buy an extra copy of each one, I will, but yeah…So if anyone knows which magazines did have these posters, comment away. One was of a barbarian (old artwork) and the other was of Andarial.
