According to my reasearch into this sticker, it was given out as swag during the 16th annual D.I.C.E. Summit held at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas on February 7-10 2013. The sticker itself measures 7.6×9.8cm (3×3 7⁄8 inches) while the entire thing measures 7.9×10.2cm (3 1⁄8×4 inches).

XCOM Keychain

Front Detail Back

This is a keychain used to promote XCOM. The overall length of the keychain is 11cm (4¼ inches) while the pendant is 3.8×5.7cm (1½ ×2¼ inches). While the chain and ring are magnetically conductive, the pendant is not so it is probably made of a coated stainless steel as it's heavy too.

This is a package containing a pen used to promote XCOM. The pen measures approximately 14 cm (5½ inches) long, while the packaging is 8.5 × 19 cm (3 3⁄8 × 7½ inches).

XCOM Pen

Multi View Side Clip

This is another pen used to promote XCOM, unfortuantely I do not have the packaging to compare. The pen measures approximately 14.4 cm (5⅔ inches) long, and is black in color. It's possible this pen was only released in Germany as I purchased it from a seller there.

Dog Tag

Front Back

This is a dog tag with laser etched lettering given out at the 2K booth as swag during the PAX East convention in 2014. The tag itself measures 3 × 5 cm and is probably chrome-plated steel (attracts to a magnet) while the chain is 37 cm looped or 74 cm long and probably stainless steel (doesn't attract to a magnet at all).

XCOM Banner

Front

This huge banner measures 60 x 160 cm (2 x 5 feet) and was used by retailers to promote the new game to customers. This may have German origins. I couldn't justify purchasing this due to the cost and shipping which was utterly astronomical.

XCOM Preorder Game Pack

Box (Front) Box (Back) Shirt (Front) Shirt (Back)

This is supposedly a German preorder game box which contains an exclusive XCOM t-shirt and (possibly) a code for the Elite Soldier Pack. I picked this up used from a German seller so I'm not sure what the contents contained brand new. In any event, the box dimensions are 13.5 × 19 × 5.5 cm (or 5¼ × 7½ × 2 1⁄8 inches).
