Entries to the Asylum - Friday 13th - Sunday 15th November 2015.

Two entries to the Asylum for Friday the 13th:

- Fallout 4 Limited Edition Beers.
- Mortal Kombat X Kollector's Edition [Xbox One].

Now I know what you're thinking. "But you posted about the beers on Tuesday the 10th?", and yes, I did. This is a second batch, haha.

The first batch we got were missing the cardboard holder-y things that 4 packs of beer typically come in. The listing is for 12 beers, but it should have arrived as 3x 4-packs, according to other customers' reviews. I complained, thus we ended up with a replacement set, which low and behold were also missing the holders. So if anyone wants to be an absolute babe and send me even just one 4-pack with a holder, I'd be eternally grateful.

The Mortal Kombat X edition was a bargain on Amazon. It has since gone back up to it's full price of near enough £60, but it dropped down for a small portion of the day on Wednesday, so we snapped two up (one for a friend's birthday gift).

Saturday the 14th saw a couple of things too:

- Fallout 4 Limited Edition Accessory Bundle.
- Fallout 4 "Charisma" Bobblehead.

The Charisma bobblehead is now our third of the exact same bobblehead. We're not entirely sure why GAME keeps sending us them, but that's three that we now own. Guessing that should be the last of them, as they were given out as a free gift for joining the Fallout 4 Vault Club (by putting down a deposit on your preorder of Fallout 4), but we only preordered one copy, and somehow we've ended up with three bobbleheads...

And the "Accessory Bundle" was something Tesco were selling on their website here, which contains a t-shirt (size L), a bottle opener and a 7" Vault Boy bobblehead (so bigger than the free one from GAME), packaged inside a "commemorative box". It's blue and yellow and has Vault Boy on it, that's all you really need to know about the box. Managed to get it for £12.50, but it has since gone up to £25. In all honesty, I wouldn't have spent £25 on it, but that may just be because I'm a cheapskate, but for £12.50 I couldn't complain. 

And lastly, today saw one entry to the Asylum (I know, it's Sunday, but it went to my parents' house and they just brought it to me today):

- Mad Max Fury Road Mondo Artwork.

This absolutely stunning piece of art (which is even more amazing in real life!) was purchased as a gift for Allan, from me. He is a massive Mad Max fan, of both the original three, and Fury Road and I knew he'd love this. As soon as I saw it, I knew he had to have it, so I ordered it, and as I expected - he adores it.

So now we need to get yet another frame to get this up on the wall ASAP.

Heck, we still haven't bought frames for everything else we need framed, so we'll need to try and get that sorted soon. Just so frustrating how much frames cost, especially when you need like a million of them.

Anyway, have you received anything cool this weekend?
