How much do you want Skyrim, a statue of a dragon, a book and a DVD? Do you want that enough to splurge £130 on it?
If you read the above paragraph and thought, “yes, I would quite like those things… oh, yes, I have got a spare £130 and a desire to splurge it.” then good for you, have a look at the picture below. That’s the Skyrim Collector’s Edition, which comes with everything I’ve mentioned.
More likely that you thought “yes, I would quite like those things… OH MY GOD HOW MUCH!?” In which case, consider that the dragon is Alduin, the world eater (apparently) and is a whole twelve inches tall. Still not tempted?
It’s a lot of money to spend on a collector’s edition, although the extra stuff is all quite enticing.
Here’s the full list of extras:
- Alduin, the World Eater Statue. 12 inches of precision-modelled PVC dragon.
- The Art of Skyrim. Official art book with over 200 pages of sketches, models and other assorted artwork from the game.
- The Making of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim DVD. A DVD. About making the game.
The collector’s edition is set to be extremely limited and will retail for $149.99/€149.99/£129.99 on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.
I have to admit, as pricey as this seems, I’m a little bit tempted…
