The LittleBigPlanet 2 Collector's Edition does something rarely seen with special editions: offer a lot for a reasonable price.
Before we get down to what's included within the Collector's Edition, let's deal with the lesser stuff first. Three retailers are offering different pre-order bonuses in the form of costumes:
- Amazon - Ratchet & Clank costumes plus four "Even More Animals" costumes: cobra, vulture, mandrill, and crocodile
- Best Buy - A Toy Story alien costume and the "Even More Animals" set
- GameStop - *Clu* from TRON: Legacy costume and the "Even More Animals" set
Only the biggest LBP fans will be after the Collector's Edition that not only features all of the above bonuses, it also throws in five PSN avatars, Jak & Daxter costumes, a Muppets costume modeled after The Great Gonzo (sweet!), "game ends" to keep your game collection tidy, and a 7-inch tall Sackboy plushie. Best of all, it only costs $79.99 -- $20 more than a copy of LBP2 itself.
Not everyone will be able to get the CE so you better pre-order real soon to reserve your own. LittleBigPlanet 2 will be released November 16.
