Doom 4, or just DOOM, launched May 13, 2016. It’s a reboot of the original Doom that released in 1993 and it’s fantastic. We’ll be doing a review on it in the coming weeks, but that’s not why we’re writing to you today. No, I think it’s really important that we look at something that id Software and Bethesda introduced in their new DOOM title. That is, of course, the little DOOM in game Collectibles you can find two of per mission in DOOM. I’ve only gotten a few with my time in game so far, and you can see which ones just below.
DOOM in Game Collectibles
These little figures of the Doomguy in various coloration are absolutely adorable and fantastic. There are 26 of these collectibles within the game, and all of them have fun names such as Doomguy, Classicguy, Stealthguy and even an easter egg to Fallout with Vaultguy who comes in blue and yellow like the iconic Fallout jumpsuit. While they don’t have any design changes between them other than coloration, they are all unique and fun and you’d be absolutely sure I would collect them all if given the chance. But that’s the problem, they don’t exist outside of the game DOOM. Which is a crying shame, do you hear me anyone-who-could-make-this-happen?
Id Software and Bethesda, listen. I’ve heard from a number of other sources that they would love these collectibles if they were a real thing they could collect outside of the game. I think it’d be worth the effort. And hey, if you’re already planning this, then I love you. Thank you. But if you aren’t already considering it, please I implore you. We demand DOOM collectible merch! And that’s why we think the DOOM Collectibles would be great real life merchandise.
And not the Vinyl Pop Doomguy. He’s cool but he doesn’t have the same appeal. But this guy instead!
