Hey everyone, I picked up the Titnfall Collectors Edition and thought I would make a post on what I think of it. For the expensive price of $250 your can be an owner of 1 of 35 000 19" Atlas Titans that was hand painted. At this price its one of the most expensive collectors edition If not the most expensive. It comes in a huge box with a slipcover with great artwork that is half the size of my couch, people at my local EBGames attempted to pick their Collectors Edition by taking it home on the bus, all of them had to call a taxi or a friend to pick them up.
You get an Atlas Titan that is around 19" tall, and is made out of plastic. You also get two Grunt figurines that you have to assemble on the base. There is an enemy Pilot that is rodeoing the Atlas that has LED lights that change from Blue to Red depending on which faction you have the Atlas Titan set to. The Atlas also has the same colour LEDs along with some broken equipment that has a white LED and can be change by pressing a hidden switch that looks like a rock. The Atlas runs on three AAA batteries that are located in a hidden compartment at the base of the Titan.
What else did I get in the box you ask? Well there is a great hard cover art book called "The Art of Titanfall" which has many great colour printed concept art and general artwork, with information detailing what is being shown n the pictures, giving us some more lore and backstory for the Titanfall universes to read up on. They also included what looked to be a rolled up poster as depicted in the artwork on the back of the box of a Atlas Blueprint Titan Poster, but sadly the poster was folded despite being shown as rolled. For the price and size of the box I expected this poster to be rolled, so I hope any other publishers looking to release an expensive collectors edition, that they put the effort in including items collectors want. Oh and I almost forgot you get a retail copy of the game.
Was is worth it he money and am I happy with the craftsmanship? I don't believe it's worth the $249.99 EA is asking for it, and it would of been a much more fair price at around $199.99 - $219.99, but that doesn't mean I'm not happy with the purchase. Yes it he Titanfall Collectors Edition is expensive but I believe the craftsmanship in the detailed paintwork makes up for this, as it must of took someone in China two days to paint. I don't collect much things in life, but lately i'v been collecting more and more collectors editions for games with figurines and statues, it can be an expensive hobby but I like it.
Should you buy If can find one? Not unless you have the spare money to burn and the room to display this beast. I am putting it into storage until my basement room is renovated, where il have a bookshelf full of collectors editions of games.
