Its centerpiece is a metal cast ship replica. iam8bit said it's "spared no expense" to achieve "hyper-detail" for this ship, which is hand-painted. The bundle also comes with some decals you can apply to the ship's body, while it also features a removable background display.

The Explorer's Edition is limited to 10,000 units, so if you're interested, you may want to preorder soon. Note that this version comes with a PC code you can redeem through Steam.
