The Ultimate Guide to What’s Happening at Limited Run
It’s the most wonderful time of the year: spooky time. We’re here to celebrate with a fresh batch of updates, events, and shipping notifications sweeter than candy corn.
Limited Run Retail Costume & Cosplay Contest
It’s Limited Run Retail’s very first Halloween party! No surprise, everyone at Limited Run Games and Limited Run Retail loves this holiday. When else can you be in full cosplay outside of a con and not get weird looks from the unappreciative public? (Some people don’t know what craftsmanship is!)
So celebrate your best cosplays and Halloween costumes with us! We’re holding a contest to declare the best dressed on Saturday, October 29th, from 4pm - 6pm at our retail store in Cary, NC. Win prizes, play games, and get your hands on some Halloween candy!
Plus, we’ll have some Halloween Special Variants for you Zombies and Ghouls to pick up…
Interested in participating? Sign up to be judged here, then come on over on October 29th!

We’re rolling through production on a ton of incredible Collector’s Editions. Here are some updates we can share with you about your favorite titles.
VALIS: THE FANTASM SOLDIER COLLECTION - Collector’s Edition
- All of the components of the Valis Collector’s Editions are finished, and we are getting them shipped out to be assembled shortly. Once assembled, they’ll head back to our warehouse and your front door. If you ordered a Standard Edition, those are on deck to ship! Everyone should have their Standard or Collector’s Edition around mid-Q4.
A BOY AND HIS BLOB & THE RESCUE OF PRINCESS BLOBETTE RETRO CART COLLECTION
- Carts are currently in manufacturing! We expect this to go smoothly, so you can expect your copies of these blobtastic titles in your hands by the end of Q4.
ASTALON: TEARS OF THE EARTH - Collector’s Edition
- One component remains: the gorgeous art book. Once these are printed and in our hands, we can finish assembly and get these out to you. Expect them in the middle of Q4.
QUAKE - Ultimate Edition
- This big collection is in assembly right now! We should have these in our warehouse by the end of the month, and they’ll be shipped out ASAP in mid-Q4.
As components continue to roll in and go out, we’ll keep you updated on the status of Collector’s Editions every month via social media, Discord, this blog, and email (so make sure you’re subscribed to our Newsletter).
Mail call! Our warehouse has been hard at work getting your games out to you! (On top of a big move to a new location, so big ups to them!) Here’s what you can expect to grace your mailboxes over the next few weeks:
TONS AND TONS OF STANDARD EDITION GAMES
We’ve got stacks and stacks of Standard Edition games coming in and going out across all platforms. Titles like Dawn of the Monsters, American Hero, A Boy and His Blob, and MORE are shipping out soon!
YOUNG SOULS - Collector's Edition
Jenn and Tristan are ready to pound down on some goblins, and so will you with this cool Collector’s Edition. These are shipping out now, so gear up!
Lots and lots of POGS
POG production has been a little backed up. But now your favorite franchises are back (in POG form) and are about to hit the shipping queue. Soon, you’ll be flippin’ and slammin’ like there’s no tomorrow.
LAIR OF THE CLOCKWORK GOD - Collector’s Edition
The highlight of this collection is the beautiful adventure journal, though the rest of it is nothing to slouch at either. These are on their way out, so get ready to thumb through Ben’s journal and experience this two-for-one, genre-bending adventure.
MONSTER SANCTUARY - Collector’s Edition
Speaking of including books in our Collector’s Editions, we’ve got ourselves a whopper. The Monster Sanctuary Collector’s Edition comes with this beautiful Monster Journal, a complete compendium of creatures that will guide you through your monster-keeping adventures. Your quest begins when we ship these off in the next few weeks, so keep your eyes open for tracking.
