    Wow guys, thanks for the nice comments! I'm glad you like the pictures.

    HellonEarth159: I had seen some pictures of those plates at the Stephen Spielberg WOTW press event in Japan and thought, "That's one I'll never get!". Then miraculously one day I was given the opportunity to buy one. Apparently, there were only a handful made and were given out through a contest in Japan. I got mine from one of the winners of that contest. It came with a nice letter in Japanese congratulating the winner. The same seller also had the Adidas 360 console and sold me the faceplate in the blue box. Just luck I guess!

    SpaceGhost2k: Don't look now, but I believe there is a certain plate with little anime girls on it up for auction right now! Not mine of course. Despite popular myth, I never sell my plates. Also, I don't work in the game industry or have "connections". I'm just a regular collector like you guys.

    SilentFatality-XBA: Yeah, that Prey faceplate is one of my absolute favs. I got that from the only person I ever knew who had one - the one and only Rhinotronics! Great guy, sad to see him leave the scene.

    My wishlist:

    MotoGP proto
    Any Protos
    Ace Combat 6 LE plate (how did I miss that?)
    Civilization Revolution
    Dark Sector
    MS Global Support
    Grey Dev kit
    Nascar 2008
    Spacey's awesome Bioware and Mass Effect sigs (wow!)


    Plates not in photos:

    Rainbox Six Vegas 2
    Bioshock UK
    Universe At War
    Bayern Munchen
    Team Xecutor Gel Pack 1
    Halo 3 Console

    Thumbs up awsomeness

    That is pure awsomeness. One of the best collections aroound, or I have ever seen. I really like the War of the Worlds plate. I really want one of those. The movie wasn't the greatest, but the plate looks sick. If you ever want to get rid of it or find one for sale, let me know. Great collection.

    Not bad, not bad. Some nice pieces you got there.
    That Prey is awesome.
    I'm glad that alot of people own some very rare faceplates.
    Imho, no person is way ahead yet with THE BEST collection. There is always something missing.
    Again, yours is very impressive.
    ....
    No "Red Naruto" faceplate here. That turns to be some very rare one.

    Thanks! I would love to get a look at your own collection. I was kind of bummed when I went into the gh0st_r1der collection thread and the cupboard was bare.

    I agree with you, there are some great pieces spread out among the collector community which keep things interesting. I actually had the opportunity to buy that MotoGP proto and I just couldn't bring myself to spend that kind of $ on it. The language barrier sort of worried me with such a large transaction and I didn't think MotoGP was such a big deal at the time. Kinda wish I had gotten it now. Oh well. Can't get them all!

    Oh, and you had a Virgin Megastore Blue Rings plate in your faceplate index. It doens't look like it's one that you own yourself. Does that really exist or is that off a printout and ended up never being made?

    The blue rings Virgin one was from a press release I found online back when it first came out. I"m not sure if the red is a 2nd issue or if the blue was a proto but I've never personally seen the blue one. I have the red one only.
