Lollipop Chainsaw’s Oversized Press-Only Edition

By Spencer . June 11, 2012 . 11:30am


Warner Bros. Interactive sent out Guitar Hero size boxes with Lollipop Chainsaw to members of the press. Let’s take a look what’s inside!



There’s a t-shirt with the Lollipop Chainsaw logo, pair of pom poms, lollipop, keychains with Juliet’s boyfriend’s head, streamers, a cheerleader mega (or mini?) phone, and a flash drive with Nick’s head. Poor Nick. I think that’s almost everything we need to be a San Romero High cheerleader.

    I’m waiting for my japanese Premium Edition. I don’t know if it has all this crap, but it’s uncensored(though, for the west there’s no censored version) and has dual voicetracks. Nothing more needed.

    • PK212

      That’s just a press release. The premium edition has costumes and is uncensored.

  • that usb drive is kinda cool…

  • AzureNova

    Why won’t they take my money for this!? >_<

  • omeganeko

    Just a few more days, Just a few more days.

  • Vivian Mai

    So um. If I start up some indie magazine can I get this? 

    …Why only press edition? :C 

  • TheDarkEmpress

    I’m okay with my regular edition…lol.

  • punkchobit

    I one said id buy this game if there was a collectors edition, but giving this to the people who aren’t even paying for the game is just an insult that guarantees I won’t buy it at all.

    • British_Otaku

      That is a wee bit harsh I think, reviewers get free review copies of games all of the time which depending on the game can have more value than the original thing (after a long period of time anyway).

      Sure, this looks much better than a review copy… Comes with a case, GH sized box and tons of exclusives but an insult to us is hardly the aim… More likely this is aimed to promote the game further with people making posts about this and the chance that one reviewer (not necessarily here) could be more positive as a result.

      • punkchobit

        It is an insult to give more to non-paying customers than those who do pay for it.

        • malek86

          But reviewers are not customers. They work in the industry. Of course they’d be treated differently at times, depending on the whim of the gaming companies.

          • punkchobit

            My point remains. The people paying for it should be treated better than those who arent

  • lucky i wish this was a REASONABLE PRICED collectors edition

  • Poor me, indeed…

  • veruses

    And we get nothing? sigh…. Still gonna enjoy the game. Don’t give two craps about the big press who only give high reviews to the biggest paid publishers.

    • What a shame… What a rotten way to cry. You were a good man. 

  • British_Otaku

    As if it wasn’t enough to have poorly stocked multiple levels of limited editions, foreign bonuses and exclusives only at conventions aside from DLC. Now I hear of games having exclusive feelies only for the press…


    *Ebay Tab ready*


  • Solomon_Kano

    Cool stuff. I don’t really get the complaints below though. The press ALWAYS get free stuff. All the time. Complaining that we can’t get the game’s press kit is pretty sad when publishers have been sending them to reviewers for ages. Sometimes they have less stuff than this, sometimes they have more. Either way, what is there to complain about? Now the lack of a limited edition in general, THAT’S something to lament.

    Besides, had this been released as a limited edition… well, it would’ve been a pretty weak limited edition. A shirt and some other minor trinkets? Unless any of you were planning on halfway cosplaying as Juliet (and, if so, I’m sorry that you’ll miss out on this. Really.), this would be paltry content for something that would’ve actually cost more than the standard version of the game.

    • Grant

      I have to agree. Additionally bigger specials like this are EXTREMELY rare. Sure the press sometimes gets something for free, like the Max Payne 3 pen, inFAMOUS 2 wallet with fake stuff cash/Id’s, and I got a desk calendar that has moves for the new characters in Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3, etc. Sure they’re “neat”, but most is pretty pointless. 

      •  Heck even the Limited/Special/Collector’s Editions of games we do get are kinda give or take on the content you get. The Soul Calibur 5 Collector’s Edition would have been better if the artbook was more than the promo art we had already seen and the album had more music on it from all of the Soul games.

  • My site isn’t big enough yet so I just got my review copy wrapped in a FedEx package ha-ha! :D

  • That’s what that stuff is from, my store manager has parts of it hanging around as advertisement for the game. I’m getting one of the keychains when I pick it up tomorrow.

  • malek86

    Shoot, a fella could have a pretty good weekend in Vegas with all that stuff!

  • Roses4Aria

    Oh, come on!  Where’s the chainsaw? ;)

  • David Bruno

    HA! What a letdown. I was totally thinking that there was going to be a sweet 1:1 chainsaw prop inside. They should have called it the Juliet Cosplay Kit. They didn’t even give you DLC codes?! I wouldn’t mind the shirt though. I’d rock it.

  • Visa Vang

    At least give the Lolipop song cd with it too!!

  • Kai2591

    oh lol
