Down with the Sickness PLUS Entries to the Asylum - 23rd-28th November 2015.

Hi guys! Really sorry for the lack of updates here the past few days. Have been terribly ill, not just me, but the entire house. It was our son's 5th birthday last Sunday and he had the time of his life.

He was spoiled rotten - a bit too much for his age - as we got him an Xbox One for his birthday. But he's been doing really well in school and he really, really wanted one (although within an hour of us setting it up, he asked where his 360 went *facepalm* ). We also got him a variety of games such as Minecraft, Terraria and Disney Infinity. Unsurprisingly though, he's still totally addicted to "the bike game" Trials Fusion, which he originally could only play in our livingroom as he could only play on our Xbox One.

Our entries to the Asylum this past week have all been tainted by the evil mistress that is HMRC, too. With customs charges being laid upon them.

Monday 23rd November 2015.

- Fallout 4 Limited Edition Vault Boy PDP Xbox One Controller.

This is a beauty, it really is. Cost approx £45 from Gamestop, if I remember correctly. Then another whopping £25 in customs charges. It's a lovely controller, but £70 is a bit hard to stomach for it. It is numbered however, with only 5040 of them in existence, so it's probably worth it!

Saturday 28th November 2015.

- S.H. Figuarts Dragon Ball Z Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan Son Goku Figure.
- S.H. Figuarts Dragon Ball Z Golden Frieza Figure.
- S.H. Figuarts Dragon Ball Z Ultimate Son Gohan Figure.
- Figma Attack on Titan Eren Yaeger Figure.
- Dragon Ball Z Resurrection "F" Limited Edition Bluray [Japan].

Again, also had to pay customs on the above. Seems like customs are being especially stringent just now, as nothing seems to be getting through.

Also have a package to pick up from the delivery office from Aus, containing myself and fellow forum member Cosmic's recent Aussie preorders: Mad Max and Fallout 4 Editions from EB Games.

That package is at a different delivery office (which I cannot get to) however, so I will be arranging for that to be redelivered sometime this week.


GAME messed up our preorder for the CE - no surprise there - and have just replaced the order, and then informed me that due to Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales, it'll be 5-10 working days before I get it. Beyond livid, as we had really wanted to play and review this tomorrow. And possibly get a Live Stream up since that's our voices now returning to normal after being so ill, but no. Unless by some way of a miracle, we get our copy, we will have to wait :(

So what have you guys received recently?
Let us know in the comments below!
