    They're limited edition so they're generally only issued as gifts from Valve, or bundled with game packages.

    I got these stupid big HL2 game boxes they gave me. (measured 1m 20cm tall) Apparently, they gave it to me because I was "stupid enough to buy the Collectors edition" What a waste. :(

    I demand a sexy poster of "Mr Pick Up the Can".

    Actually, I've been wondering if that whole "Pick up the Can" act some kind of "Pick up the Soap" variant... or is it an invitation to touch his can? O_O

    Hmm... it's not my place to say, but i'm pretty sure people have posted pictures of these in the past. If you do, make sure it's not a particuarlly good picture - the kind of thing that someone could easily photoshop and print out to put on their wall...

    Ok good point. Well I'll just do that. But wait for a moderator to confirm it. I can't use another 5 points warning :p

    :LOL: Calm down people!

    As it goes, Valve done a great job with Alyx as they do with all the characters in the game. What makes them special is how lifelike they are. I'm not even talking about facial expression/emotion or movement. Notice how HL is one of the only FPS's to feature realistically proportioned human characters? In most cases in this type of game the male characters look like they've spent most of their lives in the gym! Everyone of them looks like a body builder! Likewise female characters are usually portrayed as stereo typical porn queens with breasts the size of barrage balloons & clad in ........ well not much at all usually. It's certainly refreshing to see human characters that look like normal people! If you get that right that's half the battle & obviously Valve realised this very early on.

    Yes it's ironic that Alyx is more sexy as a result of Valves attempts to tone her down.

    I'm not sure if 'sexy' is the word I'd use :D Certainly more believable as a result. All the characters are more believable but as i said I think that's as much to do with their more regularly proportioned bodies as much as anything else.

    Someone posted a link somewhere of the actress/model that alyx was modelled on. Anyone seen her?
