I ordered Halo 5: Guardians’ Limited Collector’s Edition from Amazon a few days ago. It originally sold for $249.99. I got it for $65.99. That’s only a few bucks more than the standard edition.
It comes with the following:
- Full game digital download code
- Commemorative Statue of the Master Chief and Spartan Locke by TriForce
- Warzone REQ Bundle (14 Premium Requisition packs)
- Halo: The Fall of Reach (Animated Series)
- Guardian model by Metal Earth
- Uniquely-designed Spartan themed SteelBook
- Spartan Locke’s Classified Orders
- Dossiers on Blue Team and Fireteam Osiris
- Xbox Live Gold 14-day Trial
Even though it comes with a fancy SteelBook, it doesn’t come with a physical disc. I actually like that. I don’t like physical discs because I tend to lose them.
What I didn’t realize when I bought this was how massively huge the statue was. For some reason, I just assumed it was on the same scale as the tiny McFarlane Toys Halo action figures. It’s not. It’s massive.
This is a photo of the statue. I put a bottle of Coke next to it to better show how ginormous it is. I honestly don’t know what I’m going to do with it. It’s far too big to sit on one of the shelves I have in my home office. For now, I have it sitting on the giant box it came in.
I’ve always enjoyed Halo. I’ve just never been any good at it. The same could be said for most first-person shooters. Not that I necessarily enjoy them, that I’m just not very good at them. I enjoy Halo so much that I can totally suck at it, but still have fun playing it.
