Default Shadow of War

After being told by someone at Gamestop over the phone that they weren't taking pre-orders (despite them being available on Gamestop's website and app), I went in-person to ask about it, and sure enough, they're available, so I put my first down payment on the Mithril Edition. Doesn't release til August, so I've got 6 months to pay on it.

Anyone else looking forward to this game?

Honestly, if it was $300 up front I'm not sure I would do it, but since I can pay it over 6 months, it's only $50 at a time. Diablo and LOTR are my only real constant fandoms, so it doesn't seem unreasonable to splurge for my own personal collection. Not to mention that statue alone would probably be around $120-$150 by itself, given the size and the license. The parchment map probably isn't cheap either, though certainly not as much as the statue.

I'm not actually playing any of those games. I bought Zelda for a friend cause she couldn't get a Master Edition reserved, and I've never touched a ME game.

One site said it was 12", another said it was 15". Dunno if they measured height or width, but it's awesome regardless. I'm stoked for the ring too.

Should I start from the first one, or can I jump in anywhere?

Starting from the first is wise.

Ok, I'll keep that in mind. Is there a package I can get, or would it be wiser to try and find them cheap individually?
