    Wondering if they sent out real brass knuckles or those plastic toy ones. Or is there a difference?

    Damn, real ones must cost alot of money, when are they going to do this for UO? I want a real boomerang for my SA box!
     
  2. From what I got out of the article they were the real thing, and yeah, there's a huge difference. Not only in legality, but also in cost. It would have been smart to have some plastics company make up a batch of realistic looking ones, but to actually send out real ones.....wow. Just wow.

    To send out a Fhugazi would have been very disrespectful... They are obviously men of honour.

    Mass produced, they can be as cheap as $10-15. Not that expensive at all.

    Imagine if EA had successfully taken over Take2, and done something like this with the GTA4 release. Jack Thomson's head would've exploded.

    If brass knuckles are illegal to have, how were they produced? Or did EA buy them overseas?

    They are illegal in some states, like California where EA is based. They could have purchased them and shipped them from say Nevada.

    Hey, that's like a 10-15 buck rebate! I bet boomerangs would cost less for the SA boxes, if not, I'll settle for smaller boomerangs!
