Petitions very rarely have the desired end-result, but it certainly wouldn't hurt to try.

I am going to have to agree with Tesvixen, it is highly doubtful that they are going to make a mass production run that so many people want, or extended stock as it seems this is a limited run item. It wouldn't hurt to let Bethesda know there is a massive market for pipboy replicas but it is doubtful they will do anything.

Hopefully in the next few months though I eat my words.

A petition won't do anything now. They were limited, i was lucky to secure a Amazon PC copy reserved. Some people were not lucky. It was a limited release, and it should stay that way. My opinion of course.

I wonder if that would be your mentality, had you not been able to find one. TongueTril

To be honest, I was initially like "OMG I NEED THAT" when they showed the pipboy edition, but then I looked at the pipboy itself a bit closer and I decided that I didn't need it after all. The pipboy doesn't actually look terribly good. It's huge and looks super plasticy and cheap, I think. I think a 3D Printed pipboy that you took some time and painted up nice would look much better and probably cost less. But that's just me. shrug

i agree with skynet thats a lot to spend for a toy that will either sit on a bookshelf and get dusty or inhibit gameplay i do not see the extra ui thing doing well just my opinion.

You take that back! TAKE IT BACK! *threateningly shakes stick at you*

On a serious note, I actually plan to have mine repainted, so the 'cheap' appearance doesn't bother me much. Very Happy

Had the chance to get the Pip-Boy Edition even had a preorder that I cancelled and switched to the regular PC edition. Just don't see myself using the Pip-Boy very often and I'm not really into collectables.

Well folks, it does looks like they have come back in stock. As Tesvixen stated, there's more in stock. If you haven't gotten yours yet, try going to Best Buy, Gamestop and Bethesda's Stores! I hope everyone who wants one can get it.

I think it is meant to be exclusive, because it will be an collectors item. When you make a lot of them, the future value will be much lower. Besides that, I also think a big company like Bethesda (or any other big company for thet matter) won't listen to a petition signed by a x amount of people.

EDIT: language errors

Which is totally understandable, but i think one of two things needs to happen. They need to make it more readily available, which would leave those scalpers with tons of money spent and could only break even at best. Or, they need to find a way to prevent such acts in the first place. I just want every real fan to get something they deserve. That's what it boils down to for me and i can't stand the idea of someone taking monetary advantage over another.

Sadly there's no way to prevent scalping, unless companies like Bethesda went to Amazon, Ebay etc and basically said "Do not allow resales of this" which I don't ever see them doing.

For those keeping track they are officially sold out everywhere (again) and this time it seems for good.

You could probably buy it second hand once the game comes out. I'm sure there will be a few people who are unhappy with it or didn't like the game that will want to part ways with it.

You can bet your ass that they will sale for a ridiculous high price, even if the current owner is unhappy with the pipboy. They are limited, which means they are not commonly available. Mark my words; These pip-boys will be sold immediately on launch day for hell of a lot more than the 80 (?) bucks they spend on it. And in the future, when a lot of pip-boys disappear from the radar, it only increases their value.

Supply and demand.
