The lights are on
Are you excited for Guild Wars 2? We share in that excitement, which is why when the Collector’s Edition turned up at the Game Informer office, we knew we had to share an unboxing with you. This shouldn’t be too painful for your yearning, since the game drops on the 28th (psst, you can get in three days early by prepurchasing a copy.) But here’s your chance to see what the collector’s edition is all about.
This is the giant box that showed up on my desk yesterday. Yep, that’s the 10-inch Rytlock figure in all its glory. I know you’re thinking one thing – get the him out of box already. Thankfully, I’m nice enough to oblige.
Hiding beneath Rytlock was a collectable Guild Wars 2 metal tin featuring the world you’ll be exploring. There’s more to this tin than meets the eye, however.
The tin, just like the Guild Wars 2 world, is packed with surprises. Not only does it contain a beautiful custom art frame from the game, but it also has prints showing off monsters, characters, and the landscape.
Did you think that was all? Not even close. The tin also houses 112-page artbook entitled, Making of Guild Wars 2 and the Best of Guild Wars 2 soundtrack. Oh, and how could we forget the game? That’s the most important part isn’t it?
By ordering the collector’s edition, you’re also granted in-game items, including a Miniature Rytlock, Golem Banker, Tome of Influence, Chalice of Glory, and the Summon Mistfire Wolf Elite skill.
Here’s one last look at this beastly collector’s edition in all its $149.99 entirety. Interested? Check out the official site for more information.

That is a ton of stuff.
A lot of things. I like it
This looks really good. If only I was willing to drop $150 on an MMO. But I just can't seem to get into them as much as everyone else. :(
wow cool this os really worth it.
Wow, those prints look great and soundtracks are always fun, but I usually find a hard time to justify the price of Collector's Editions. Thanks for the look, though!
Hmm I was debating getting the Collectors, though I'm still trying to determine if the Digital Deluxe Edition is worth the extra ingame stuff for $20.
Cool look at everything. I just wanted to point out that the bonuses and headstart are for prepurchasing, not preordering. Preordering gets you one day headstart.
I don't even want Guild Wars 2 (I'm a console gamer), but this seems really cool. I'm always a huge fan of video game statues, and that one looks amazing.
Very nice, very nice indeed.
we need more collectors editions of this quality
I cannot wait till August 27th at midnight to get this with the special edition hardcover guide! I just watched Felicia Day unboxing of the Collector's Edition and it made me even more excited! Can't Wait!
That looks like a pretty cool Collector's Edition, and I love anything concept art. But, unfortunately I don't have $149.99 to spend on such a thing. :P
