I personally see nothing wrong with it but it's also not something that would make me go slap down $150 on it. Didn't like the American Collectors edition that much either, not gonna really do much with the zombie hula girl or wooden key.

Now the European Metal Gear Rising Collectors Edition, THAT is what a collectors edition should have. Too bad the thing is European/Japan only and here in the US all we get is a stupid lava lamp

100% true, but they didn't and they never will.

Just the whole dead chest thing is stupid on it's own. The fact it's female is like trying to clean a pile of shit with piss.

Knowing gamers? They'll likely be coming up with gay jokes about it..

People would probably still think it's stupid/weird.
A full bodied zombie statue sitting on your desk, that's fine.
And given part of a zombie, other than the hand, turned into a statue sitting on your desk, okay now things are getting kind of weird. And the chest is just an odd choice.

Well really, there aren't any definitive sexual features on a man's chest. This statue focuses heavy on breasts, it's the center-point, and the only feature on the model that isn't severed off. If you were to compare that to a male statue, would need to consider what kind of statue would actually be similar. Because male chest != female chest.

At no point should a thing like this ever exist. A headless torso statue? That is foul, beyond foul. The fact that anyone would find nothing wrong with this, even want it horrifes me and leaves me wondering what the mental state of people is.

This is literally one of the most disgusting and foul things I've had the misfortune to see. Why would anyone do this? Why?

I'm not bothered by this really. I'd probably get it for the sake of getting it, even if I don't much fancy how so much would be going towards the statue rather than other extras (like a physical soundtrack CD, hardcover artbook, etc). I like me my steelbooks, I have to say.

Though admittedly, the fact that the woman almost certainly had a boob job before getting ripped to pieces doesn't help the whole issue.

A man+woman zombie statue set would probably have done much to avoid the issue being raised though.

In all fairness, this sort of statue is right in line with British humor and likely intended to be a very pointed joke, but this just isn't the place for that.
If it were in line with British humour, it'd be a male torso wearing a bikini.

It feels like every time the problems of society are introduced to games people flip out.
Yeah, those zombie girl plagues are becoming a real menace.
