Now of course, I realize that's a European website. My problem is I live in the US. I did a google search to see if any version of a Wii game could be played on any version of a Wii console, and found answers saying that NO, PAL games will not work on an NTSC console, for example.
IS the collector's edition ONLY available for European gamers? What about the rest of the world? I don't necessarily want to find a PAL Wii just to play a game -_-
And I realize I could just buy a regular edition of the game, but that defeats my purpose for wanting the collector's edition....
Any info about any of this would be very much appreciated.

Sorry. I think EM1 Collector's Edition only came out in North America, and the EM2 Collector's Edition only came out in Europe.
What is your purpose and goal for the Collector's Edition of Epic Mickey 2?
Clearly, you do not want to save it in Mint Condition as an investment.
Is there an item that you think would give it an advantage over the regular version?
Stuff on the USB stick (watch You Tube), randomly a one-legged Mickey OR Oswald doll in black wrapping so you can't peek prior to purchase, a one-inch film cell clip?
Here is an unboxing
When I pre-ordered the Collector’s Edition of Epic Mickey,
I wanted the cute Mickey doll holding his brush -- that I set near the TV while playing.
And, I have quoted from the Bonus Disc interview.
I have no idea what happened to the skins, but I'm not a sticker person.
I, also, got a Collector's Edition hard-cover Prima Guide, that had a nice forward written by Warren Spector, and a good interview of Warren Spector. I was going to keep the book pristine, until I started marking where the pins, gremlins, and extra content are, to get everything. The paper-back would have been wiser.
Now, the internet has plenty of interviews, IGN written walkthroughs, and You Tube videos of the game.
If I wanted to Epic Mickey 2, today, I'd get it discounted at one of the major discount stores, or used.
If you want to spend more money to make the game more enjoyable, make sure you have an SD disk to save games on, in case you want a place to revert to, or run into a freeze.

True, if you go to Wii Saves, you see that European and US games are not compatible.
Still, in each area, the game case and game disk is the same, whether it is inside the Collector's Edition box, or sold separately, just in the case. The difference is the toy and extra content inside the Collector's Edition box.
For Epic Mickey 1, the game I got in the Collector's Edition box was exactly the same as what others bought separately.
Even if you buy a Collector's Edition box from Europe, you are faced with two ways to play the game:
1) Spend money on a European Console (and compatible TV);
2) Spend $20 on a US version of Epic Mickey 2 to play on your own console.
