Rare Action Figures

At the Arcade Hotel, we love figures and retro toys. If you walk around our lobby or stay in one of our rooms, you will have the opportunity to gaze at our wonderful collection of items from series, such as He-Man and Marvel comics.

However, there are a few figures out there that is almost impossible to get for the regular collector. We selected three very interesting cases for you, to have a look as to what makes them so special.

Vinyl Cape Jawa

This one is highly sought in collector circles and always a part of rare figures discussions. Jawas in the Star Wars universe are known to collect scraps, but this rare Jawa figure with a vinyl cape (instead of the regular cloth one) will cost you way more than just a few scraps. Because of an error during the production process, few of these figures exist, so when one of them shows up, the price can approach the $30,000 mark.

Original Superman

He might look slightly weird, but his worth compensates for his looks. The original figure of Supes can be yours for a price of $25,000. And it might not seem like it, but this powerful Kryptonian was released before WWII. We are talking about history here!

Rocket Firing Boba Fett

We are going back to Star Wars, but how couldn’t we? This is the Way, after all. This bounty hunter has a hefty bounty on his head, as he is priced to up to $150,000 only because of that super rare rocket on his back. There are many stories and even video documentaries out of there of people doing their best to attain him. We don’t think we could ever manage to get one, but cheers to those who did it.

Don’t forget to check your attic! You might have treasures lurking there.

The World’s Most Expensive Game

There are many games on the Steam platform that can be quite expensive. Especially if you add DLC for skins, characters, and stages, the amount you need to spend might reach thousands of euro. But what is the price you need to pay if you are looking for Steam’s most expensive single, standalone game? Well, one of the newest games available on the platform, The Hidden and Unknown goes for a whooping 1.949,09€! No, your eyes are not deceiving you. The game was developed by ProX, a person or studio (we are not sure) famous for bringing you…eh…The Hidden and Unknown. That’s it. That is the only game they have ever released on Steam. We haven’t played the game (obviously), but there are some walkthroughs on YouTube about..

Chess Boxing: Strong Mind in A Strong Body

Chess is known to be one of the most challenging mental exercises. Boxing is known to be one of the most challenging physical ones. What happens when you combine them? That was the question that Dutch artist Iepe Rubingh had when, in 2003, and inspired by a comic by Enki Bilal, he announced the inauguration of “Chess boxing,” a sport that brings together chess and boxing. Uhmm… Sorry, what? The idea is simple: you play three minutes of chess, followed by a round of boxing, and then you repeat. You can win, mainly, by either knocking out your opponent or checkmate. A player needs to be able to switch fast from thinking chess moves to protecting their body and punching the opponent (and vice versa). After hosting an..

What Are Those Mods?

Probably you have heard of the word “modding” or “mods.” And probably you have seen games such as Garry’s Mod that allow you to interfere and mess around with game software. Modding is, pretty much, changing some software in order to make it function differently. And many video games have been modified by skillful programmers to perform different functions -and sometimes to the extent of being a totally new game and experience. In fact, someone could claim that the whole gaming industry began from modifications that some people did on pre-existing software. Today, we are going to have a look at three game mods that were so good and so popular they became their own, standalone games. Counter-Strike The reason most of us know video game mods. The..
