Devil's Kiss Vigor Bottle!

A Devil's Kiss Vigor Bottle from Bioshock Infinite has just been put up on the Irrational Store. Link can be found here: *mwah*




If it's anything like the Murder of Crows one, it will be sold out in no time. People are already attempting to sell them on eBay for at least double the price! It's actually a very attractive piece, however I do still prefer the Murder of Crows one (even though I've yet to add it to the collection, boo!), which also goes for insane prices on eBay (so I doubt I'll manage to get one anytime soon unless someone gives me a nice price *hint hint*).

Limited to 500, this one has a larger run than the MOC Vigor, but is a bit cheaper at $350. There is also a smaller run of signed ones (also within the 500), limited to 50. However, just for having Ken Levine's autograph (which let's be honest, it's on basically everything in that store nowadays!), it bumps up the price to $600, which is an absolutely ridiculous price hike. They are available >>here<<.


I'd honestly love to own one of the signed ones, since they're rarer, and come with a certificate of authenticity (which for some reason, the non signed ones don't seem to include), however I am nowhere near being able to just drop $600, plus shipping, plus the inevitable customs charges on the package, now, or even anytime soon (plus it'll no doubt sell out soon).

My only saving grace is that the signed one is pretty unnatractive, due to the location of the signature. It would have been far better to have the signature on the underside of the base, just as the Murder of Crows ones were.


If Ken Levine wants to be an absolute charmer and donate one to me though, I totally wouldn't refuse ;)

Are you getting one of these? If so, which version, and why? 
Let me know in the comments below!

  1. I purchased the cheaper one although technically it wasn't cheap when duties, surcharges and taxes where added. The total amount was $476.28 and if I had purchased the signed edition instead, it would've been $726.28. That's 126.00 dollars more than the base price. I Can't believe that the signed edition is ridiculously higher than the regular just for the additional signature and certificate of authenticity. Frankly I too would have wanted a signed edition myself for it's rarity but for the unreasonable price it's going for, I'd rather go regular. Besides Ken Levine's signature isn't nice enough for me to pay more and it kind of defaces the statue a bit since it's plastered on the side of the base, not the bottom like you mentioned. So in a nut shell, either pay the not so cheap price of the regular or pay 300 dollars more additionally for a piece of paper and an ugly signature. I think that for the signed edition's price they should have included something extra, like one of the two of Elizabeth's pendants you choose for her to wear in the game but I digress. Hopefully mine comes in mint condition as I've yet to receive mine and have the devils luck.

  2. Yeah, definitely not cheap at all. I've noticed lots of people saying they're really happy with theirs though, so maybe it is worth it :)

    Couldn't possibly justify the extra cost for a signed one though, struggle enough to make normal purchases, never mind a $600 replica!

    Yeah, something extra would have been good to explain the extra cost of the signed one, but $250 just for a signature and a COA. No thanks.

    Good luck on yours arriving!

    1. Thanks for wishing me good luck, I think I'll need it. I do believe the folks you've mentioned who purchased the singed edition are satisfied with their purchase. In addition, just yesterday I checked Irrational Games site and found the signed editions to be completely sold out, only to be restocked again. I'm not sure if they made a mistake on their system and marked them as sold out when I purchased mine or someone returned theirs for an unknown reason. Whatever the reason maybe, it may show that there's only one left in-stock but please do take this with a grain of salt. I wish you and your friends the best and much luck in the construction of your site!

  3. Yeah, was expecting the signed one to sell out quickly anyway, despite the price :)

    Hope yours has arrived nice and safe now!

    Thanks for the luck :D
