A little bit of a left-field entry today, but for those of you dismayed at not having managed to snaffle up a copy of the Veteran Edition of Modern Warfare 2, which came packaged with a rather nice ornamental paperweight carved out to look like the Kevin McKidd-voiced hard man, it would appear that you can now sleep well in the knowledge that GAME and Gamestation are now offering consumers the chance to buy the little homage to gruff, clinical violence separately. Hit one of the links below to get your own slice of MW2 in tangible form for just £9.99.
To be honest, there's absolutely no need for something like this. This falls squarely into the 'Impulse Buy' category of your mind where cheap pieces of tat can be reconstituted by the brain into objects of ultimate desire. But that's the beauty of it - I can't find a single piece of justification for buying this, and yet I kind of want one. And I'm betting that there are a few others out there as well. There are three sets of interchangeable weapons, from the dual .45 calibre pistols to the classic M14 rifle and not forgetting, of course, the excruciatingly painful icepicks. It's quite heavy though, so try not to drop the Soap.
