So Batman: Arkham Origins came out and I happened to pick up the Collector’s Edition for the PlayStation 3 from Amazon.com. I’ve played the first two Arkham games countless times over the years and am super excited for this new leg on the Arkham game storyline. I plan on showcasing my new items below and give you all a little input as well as some details. Just remember that these were all taken with my phone and may not be the best quality ever but it’s really all I have to work with. Anyway, enjoy!
Ok, so the Collector’s Edition came with a ton of stuff and I took pictures of it all so there are plenty of photos, but here is a list of all that is included:
- Black Mask’s Dossier
- Batman Wanted Poster
- Batwing Prototype Schematic
- Necessary Evil: Super-Villains of DC Comics Blu-Ray
- Crime Lab Evidence
- 80-Page Hardcover Collector’s Art Book
- Wayne Family Photo
- Anarchy Logo Stencil
- Glow-In-The-Dark Gotham City Map
- Deluxe Batman: Arkham Origins Statue with LED Backlighting
- 1st Appearance Batman Skin
- Deathstroke Challenge Map
And of course the game itself. The only thing I don’t have a photo of is the glow-in-the-dark map, there was just too much glare going on in my room to get a good shot of it, but it’s really cool.
Black Mask’s Dossier is one of the coolest things about this particular Collector’s Edition. It has a some really detailed reports on the assassin’s featured in the game as well as a cool insert that says “You made the cut, don’t fail me.” and a neat little Batman “One Night to Kill the Bat” wanted poster. There is a lot of great information on the characters in this thing, which makes it really neat and informative as well as just plain cool.
This is the Gotham City Police wanted poster for Batman and the Batwing Schematic. Both are really neat collectible items.
This one is rather self-explanatory – the Necessary Evil Blu-Ray and the Crime Lab Evidence. The evidence is one of Killer Croc’s teeth and a poker chip, pretty sweet stuff. I really like that they came in that evidence wrap up stuff, it makes them really unique. They look great displayed on a shelf with all this other stuff.
The Hardcover 80-Page Art Book = Amazing.
The Anarchy Stencil and the Wayne Family Photo.
And now, the Pièce de résistance – DAT LED JOKER STATUE!
This thing is so freaking awesome that these pictures nor my words will do it any justice. Those TV’s in the back are what light up and the statue itself is huge! I have no idea where it will go in the room, I might need a new shelf…
Last but not least is the game itself (taken last-minute) –
If I rated these Collector’s Editions I would definitely give this one a 12/10. It was so worth it ($120) and really brought the quality. Not only is this stuff really cool to have, a lot of it is important and very interesting from the dossier’s to the Wayne family photo. Can’t wait to crack into the game and kick some bad guy ass with Bats!
Oh, and one last thing – This little gem came hidden in the statue. What could it be? (Don’t tell me if you know, I want it to be a surprise…)
