Halo Uprising # 3 delayed again!

hp3Yup! I should have known this was coming Halo Uprising issue 3 has been pushed back yet again. What I find extremely funny is that the official web site for the comic even says that its out this week and in the very same article has the brand new date for it. Uhh....alright then.

PRICE: 3.99
IN STORES: April 23, 2008

This will not affect the Xbox Collector Video Review this weekend, we will just focus on what is actually out.

Toybender has the scoop on the series 3 Halo figures.

One of my fellow blog mates has just posted some news on series 3 of the Halo 3 toys! Check out his article to see a new Brute Chieftain, Human Flood and a Jackal Major. There's also some new Spartan figures too..

Snag this rare TeamXbox.com faceplate !


Anybody who knows anything in the Xbox world will tell you TeamXbox.com is one of the first awesome Xbox websites to hit the internet. Sure it hit its low points when it got scooped up by the beast that is IGN but its still a great community. To be honest I was born from this community, I wouldn't be the freak I am if it weren't for the countless hours spent on this site.

Just wanted to give all you serious collectors a heads up, the uber rare Teamxbox.com faceplate is up for grabs on eBay, only a few days left. The faceplate doesn't include the original packaging, but that shouldnt effect the value that much.

Valve Restocks Companion Cubes



"The Weighted Companion Cube is not supposed to make people cry, but it most certainly did back in late December, when Valve's official plushies sold out within 24 hours of going on sale. We did not hate Valve for this. We were patient. We bided our time. Oh the biding we have done! Now said biding has paid off, as a fresh shipment of Weighted Companion Cubes have shown up at Valve's store, both in plushie and fuzzy dice formats. Both are available for $29.95, and both will more than likely be sold out within days, if not sooner. Aperture Science takes no responsibility for customers trampled to death in the ensuing rush."

Oh man, if they werent 30 bucks I would buy one. Chalk another one up for a future Companion Cube plush owner.

Neon Xbox 360 Arcade Stick



"Can’t get enough of the classic arcade games up on Xbox Live? Then you probably know how miserable it can be to play most of the old school arcade games with the 360’s modern controller. I guess that’s why this one-of-a-kind custom 360 arcade controller has me green with envy.

Created by master joystick builder ShaolinDrunkard, it’s just one of several gorgeous custom arcade sticks he’s designed and constructed.

The hand built arcade controller uses serious arcade quality controls from Sanwa and Seimitsu, with dramatic LED backlighting behind each button. There’s even an awesome green glow which emanates from inside of the sparkly joystick knob.

It’s all housed inside of a substantial oak box, and decorated with the familiar Xbox 360 green rings design (thankfully, no red rings here). Now if only he’d mass-produce these things…"

I think it looks pretty cool, but it does seem a bit.....huge. Very well made though, will he take 20 bucks for it. ;)

Halo 3 Heroic Maps Set Free On Tuesday



"Today's Bungie Weekly Update features a handy reminder for the frugal. Next Tuesday, March 25 at 2 AM PDT, the Heroic Map Pack for Halo 3 will become a free download on Xbox Live. Good things come to those who wait (and reject microtransactions). That will coincide with the reveal of the third map from the soon to be released Legendary Map Pack, which, if you're getting greedy, has no current plans for becoming an eventual freebie. Who knows if that may change. God and The Shadow, probably. Maybe Luke Smith."

I cant wait to finally play some of those Foundry maps. I thought 10 bucks was too much for 3 maps but with the next pack having a Sidewinder remake, I might buy it.
