Someone on the BSN noticed this recently:

http://www.bigbadtoystore.com/bbts/p...80&mode=retail

Each character includes updated photos, character bio, storyline, and logo, and is packaged with Mass Effect 3 branding.

Bonus Downloadable Game Content: Each figure includes an in-pack card giving you access to downloadable in-game bonus content. Each figure contains different in-game content, exclusive to North American released product. Collect all 8 for the full experience!

According to people who emailed the store, they aren't revealing what they are exactly but it seems to be something related to multiplayer. Assuming you buy both 4 packs at $67.99 each, that's $134 without tax already...will this be the game with the most expensive total DLC ever?

also, lol @ north america only

EDIT:More MP content-preorder the artbook from barnes&noble and get more multiplayer content-
http://www.barnesandnoble.com/contai....asp?PID=41929

From 1/23/12 - 2/20/12, when you pre-order a copy of The Art of Mass Effect Universe, you will receive a code to download extra game content for Mass Effect 3. This will include the collector's rifle, among other cool content to beat out your opponents.

Not sure if already having the collector rifle in entitlements will work, I'll update this post if I see anything.

But you are buying FIGURES not toys. It's not just DLC.

Also it's about 500 universes behind Railworks DLC.

I think IdolMaster is going to have that title wrapped up forever, or at least I hope it does.

edit: That's just for console games, I'm afraid to look at what Railworks adds up to.

Buy Lair of the Shadow Broker and maybe Overlord. Nothing else is worth it.

But why is this stuff always North America only. Will EU-players be able to get the DLC another way?

That would be pretty impossible, considering the existence of Rock Band.

Getting all the in-game item World of Warcraft trading cards would probably cost thousands as well.

I was actually excited when I saw the thread title.

Because I thought it said we could download little figurines to collect inside Mass Effect and my latent Asberger's kicked in.

Is it me, or does the 4 figurines in the link look like complete and utter ass? I can understand paying (the original 80$) for some quality models, but damn, those are horseshit bad. We're better off just waiting for the DLC to hit normally and skipping the toys and getting it cheaper.

After this, I expect ALL games to follow the Skylanders method. Smash Bros Kerfuffle with 5 base characters, and 50 figurines available in stores to add to the roster. Black Ops 2 requires you to buy actual guns & perk "badges" to use them in-game. The Last Guardian will force you to keep an actual giant rat-dog-thing alive in order to progress the story.

Once we can just scan in the DLC directly from figure to console, no code required, the Age of Skylanders will truly have begun.
