I Am A Swag [Lady of the Night]

Today Jon called me a "swag [lady of the night]".  And he's right.  I am.  I'll freely admit this.  I'm the kind of guy who has already admitted in the past to purchasing the Lord of the Rings Collector's Editions not for the added footage, but more so because I wanted the pretty statues.  I'm even wrestling with the notion of sprining for the DCUO Collector's Edition, because I really want that Jim Lee designed Batman statue.  I love fluffy extras, and I love the one room of my house I'm "allowed" to store them in. 

So with PAX approaching, I have one very simple goal outside of making each of my appointments: I want to get a very specific t-shirt from Bethesda's Fallout: New Vegas booth.  As God as my witness, let no nerd/geek/gamer/booth attendant get in my way. 

The problem is, I want two. 

My future bride loves California's state flag.  She's always wanted it on a t-shirt.  But each time I've been out that way, despite a high tourist flow, I've not been able to procure one.  Bethesda will be handing out shirts that have said state flag on it, only slightly altered: the bruin has two heads, it's somewhat vintage-faded, and it says "New California Republic".  If you ask me, that's way better than the real current flag of the Governator's state.  In fact, I think they should vote it into real existence.  But I'm sure with a multi-million dollar defecit on their hands they have other things to worry about.

Anyway, my point is that I do love the swag they hand out at these things.  I'm anxious to see what I come home with this time.  If you're going to PAX, what's on your list to nab, or better: what's your favorite piece of game related swag?
