An expensive Collector’s Edition of Marvel vs Capcom: Infinite has its buyers feeling hoodwinked thanks to some hilariously misleading ads.
The Marvel vs Capcom Infinite Collector’s Edition promises that for NZ$199 (or AU$299 in Australia for some reason), you get four "highly detailed diorama statues" and "dynamic replicas of the infamous Infinity Stones" alongside Capcom's latest competitive fighter.
"Exploding with all the excitement, intensity, and quality fans expect from Marvel and Capcom, this Collector's Edition is destined to become the showcase of every fan's collection," its description reads.
However, as VG247's Alex Donaldson reports, the final product barely resembles that in the ads, with the Infinity Stones looking like plastic eggs, and the figurines looking cheap and plastic.
The Infinity Stones can't be removed from the box either.
According to VG247, the company behind the Collector’s Edition was also responsible for a Batman: Arkham Knight Batmobile Edition, which was cancelled a week before that game launched.

As bad as those eggs are, I think the statues promised even more pic.twitter.com/RdsYZY0wO7— k.Dot.Lo (@kDotLo) September 18, 2017
