Capcom really thinks Resident Evil fans are willing to spend a lot of money. First, they announced the $90 Collector’s Edition of Resident Evil 5, a megabox packed with all sorts of essentials, like a necklace, a patch, and a figurine.
Real fans don’t buy action figures, whether or not they’re commercially available. Buying things is for wimps. No, the real fan breaks out the paint, dismembers currently-existing figures, and then the real fan makes their own action figures, like Chris Hooton did for the horror game Dead Space.
