You found the friendliest gaming & tech geeks around. Say hello!
Honestly I kind of love them for it.
WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK HOW DO WE BUY ONE OF THOSE
So these are the new Beanie Babies?
The "it'll be worth money one day so I can't touch it" thing is the weirdest self-deprivation to me, and I generally have issues with any collection you're not allowed to touch / unwrap / remove the tag. As soon as someone gets a Magic card "graded" and it's slapped in a permanent plastic case, it's worth zero to me. Constantly equating your collection to money sucks all my fun away.
True story: When I recently obtained a few rare & heavily-sought Magic cards, the first thing I did was take them out of their binder page and hold them in my hand. I did it in the name of "checking their authenticity"... but really I just wanted to touch them.
I guess I'll wait for video.
My position is: If you're gonna see it, do it in the theater where you at least get to watch the delicious spectacle of visual effects and world building they did. The plot, premise, and effects are really really good. It's the dialogue and acting (and forced romance) that makes it seem small. They were a Gary Oldman & Chris Tucker away from nailing this thing and just couldn't get there.
