Are you into limited edition flagships like the Iron Man S6 edge?

Are you into limited edition flagships like the Iron Man S6 edge?
The Galaxy S6 edge Iron Man edition used to go for pretty penny on eBay, but its actual price turned out to be far humbler. The Marvel Comics hero-clad smartphone is a sight to behold, with a shiny red-and-gold nanocoating, that Samsung so eloquently clarified in a blog post is needed to arrive at multiple color layers infused into a single solid color of the premium S6 edge chassis.

In addition, the phone takes advantage of the new theming engine in the S6 edge TouchWiz overlay to introduce an Iron Man one, which is on by default, and presents new icons, wallpaper, as well as a shiny golden thread. 

Well, you can have one if you got $2500 lying around, doing nothing, which is still pretty steep for a phone that is not all wrapped up in gold and Swarovski crystals. This is why we were wondering if you would snatch one of those limited edition phones from Samsung, HTC and others, if you have the chance and cash to burn? Tell us in the poll below, and sound off which one would you get.

No. Many times it just makes the phone ugly.

I would't say it's ugly... It's just that tech becomes obsolete so fast, it's hard to spend that type of money on something that I can get for less... Sure it doesn't have the sweet Iron Man design, but it's not like a car that will become a classic in 20 years... In 20 years people will be laughing on how weak the "Limited Edition" phone was... Also it may not even work on future networks, it will literally be a paper weight.

Many times, they take a nice looking phone and put some design on it, that just ruins it.

GREAT, thanks for repeating yourself or imposing your will on me... Again I wouldn't say it's ugly... Just reread my post #2. ^^^

Will, didn't you impose your will on me first. You objected to my opinion, then gave your own. First look at yourself, fool.

Well, we were asked to assume "if you have the chance and cash to burn", so think of it as not a big deal affordability wise But in principal, the idea of paying Marvel to market their own brand sounds real bad. I know that's the way merchandising works but this s**t really spins my head

It's hard to say. I don't mind the S6 Iron Man edition since I do like how the color look. However, I don't want to pay more money if I could just get skin to make the phone to look like that. But any other limited edition phones with different color design might be a different story for me.

If the price is something like... only 100$ more, I will buy it.

Did you even read the article it said 2500 bucks, seriously now a days people don't even bother to read and go straight to the comments.

it also said, if you had the money lying around, why wouldnt i buy a 2500 bucks limited if i had millions?

I'm pretty sure he knows that it's $2,500. He's saying IF the price was only $100, he would buy it in that case. It's not that hard to understand.

I would answer the question in the article differently to the poll question. I'm into them visually but I'd never get one even if I had the "cash to burn". I generally never have that mentality.

Limited Edition? Yes!!! Exorbant pricing? NO!!!! I wanted the IronMan S6 Edge, but its not work the cost for the paint job. I could have the case easily painted those colors and I could simply get a system pull of the software and install that theme.

Not really. Cool for a while then probably get tired of it. They already over charge for the edge which is crazy.
