While many see rAge as an opportunity to hang out and play videogames, it’s also a great place to blow your salary.

We’ve had a few hours to walk around on the opening day of  rAge 2016 and to see all the wares that you could buy. We’ve compiled them into a neat little list with prices and where to find them when you get to the Dome.

Just remember that you need to pay to get into the expo first: R120 for a single day and R300 for the weekend pass. Remember to factor that into your budget.

Now, this isn’t a definitive buyer’s guide. Rather, it’s the cool stuff we found and wanted to show you. It’s also what we would buy if we had the thousands to burn. Enjoy!

Everything else

rAge 20016

rAge really is something you have to experience, at least once. It’s a shopping experience like no other if you’re into this particular sect of collecting and you have the money to spare.

To that end we didn’t even talk about all the games, literature, costume and accessory stores and what they have to offer. It’s not as strange as the stuff on this list, but it’s definitely stuff you’d buy.

Finally: thanks to J.J. Abrams for taking the above picture.
