Gears of War vinyl stickers.


I love gaming tournaments, but I love swag even more! I just recently attended a Gears of War tournament and managed to snag a few cool things, one of them being these Gears of War vinyl stickers!

I happened to talk the girl handing them out into giving me a couple of them, so if you'd like to grab some, I'm selling a few of them on eBay! Check em out here.

Also, it looks like someone else who was at tourney is selling them too...click for their auction.

Lost Planet Faceplate


Im not sure if this is what the official Lost Planet faceplate (or skin) is going to look like. I found this image on Capcoms Flickr page. So im guessing its the real deal.

Kill Bill FacePlate

This faceplate was created by Chris Lucas. He also created a pretty nice Kill Bill case mod and now this. I love it! He should totally make one for us here at the Xbox Collector.

Hey 360 gamers,

Easily Win a Halo 3 Vinyl Decal !

Hey folks, I am holding a giveaway at 360style for some Halo 3 Decals that Blessed Things hooked me up with. Check it out !.

Collecting Critics vs. Duke !!


I always get critics who tell me that its pointless to collect Xbox "stuff" . That it will never mature in value and that it doesn't have that same feeling as a nintendo item. I never believed that and I save anything I can get my hands on with that little green logo.

Here is a perfect example: The Original Xbox 1 " Duke" Controller.
Current eBay price: $102

Holy crap Batman ! That is insane, even as a collector i'm shocked. I mean you can pick up a mint NES controller for less then half that price and it is for a vintage system. But then again how can I say im shocked, I once sold a X-Men Legends (Xbox 1) Strategy guide on ebay for 125$ .

Signed Deion Branch Seahawks Faceplate.


Check out this Deion Branch(#83) autographed faceplate. The starting bid is ranging around $40. A steal if your are a huge Seahawk fan. But then again if you read the sellers auction he gets you detailed instructions in how to obtain your own signature. Source : eBay.

One Handed Xbox 360 Controller for the Disabled.

When Ben Heck was asked to created an Xbox 360 one handed controller mod. He did it and it's amazing the quality of craftsmanship he put into it. The controller supposively works by having you use you knee to control one of the analog sticks, while your left hand control the other analog stick as well as all the buttons.

That is one sexy Case Mod! Its very well done and its professional. Great job. From more images click here.

Suzuki does Xbox

People Just love to make cars from th xbox 360 concept.

"If you thought the Indigo Ferret was an obscure brand of mescaline going around Taos, stick around; you'll probably be right at some point. But today, at the LA Auto Show, the Ferret in question is pro gamer Patrick Wyrick, who helped Suzuki create the SXbox concept it plans to unveil. Based on the new SX4 compact crossover, the SXbox has a combination of mild performance upgrades and extra spicy AV kittage. Considering performance, the car's been fitted with high-flow airbox/intake, cat-back exhaust, suspension tweaks and multi-piston alloy brake calipers and cross-drilled, vented rotors. The AV portion includes and multispeaker surround audio provide and a dashboard-integrated Xbox 360 console hooked to a digital projection system, which uses the retractable hood as a screen. A second Xbox is linked to LCD displays in the rear seat backs, and a 30" retractable rear projection screen rises from the cargo area on command. It's also got force-feedback front seats and four wireless controllers, including one mounted on the steering wheel . The rolling distraction unit is the product of ASC of Huntington Beach."

Rare 'Viva Pinata' Pinata....


I figured we would see these sooner or later but according to the auction this is a rare item only given out to certain people who worked on Viva Pinata for Xbox 360.
All I can really say about this is they could have done a better job making the pinata look more like Horstachio.
