Skyrim Collector's Edition Announced

That's a nice dragon.

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…

    HOW MUCH!? It is good but i flat out refuse to pay that much for a collectors edition of a game. I think this just beats the MW2 CE in terms of price as i think that was £125.I wonder what the Dragon looks like?

    Statue is awesome and I think the DVD would actually be pretty interesting, but that really is a lot of money. I’d rather just buy the game and spend the extra money on 3 or 4 other big releases around the same time.

      I agree. The DVD looks pretty cool but for £129.99?! Let’s just stick with the normal Skyrim game. You could then buy Uncharted 3 aswell, and possibly MW3!

    Dammit, I want a world-eating dragon statue in my room! Well, seeing as you get the Making Of DVD, An art book, the full Skyrim game (Obviously) and a world-eating dragon statue, I’m tempted also! But I can’t just cough up £129.99! Life Sucks. . .

    It looks good but I’m not interested in a BTS dvd but a official soundtrack!

    A hugely ridiculous piece of tat tied to (what is hopefully) a finely tuned video-game for a price seemingly plucked out of chefs hat masquerading as a magician.
    Utter madness and if I had a fistful of dirty twenties I was about to burn so they don’t grub the inside of my polished calf-leather wallet, I’d buy it quicker than you can say “Don’t touch that hot plate, Sir Elton!”.

    All special editions should be judged against The Witcher 2 hard copy special edition. It had an amazing amount of stuff, both digital and physical, and it cost between £70-80.

    Yes. No, wait? What did you say the price was? …! And without the dragon? … Aha?… yeah, no. But thanks for the “offer”.

    £130? Jog on. As much as I love CE’s, this is far too much for far too little. It’ll likely be reduced soon after release like Crysis 2 Nano Edition was.
