Unboxing BioShock's 10th Anniversary Collector's Edition

In the 10 years since its release, the original BioShock has come to be regarded as one of the best and most influential games in recent history. Now 2K Games is celebrating the 10th anniversary of BioShock (and the beginning of the series) with a special collector's edition, which comes complete with a new statue featuring a Big Daddy and Little Sister. Though it's scheduled to launch on November 14, we got our hands on this impressive item early and took some pictures so you can see this collectible for yourself.

Here's the box, complete with shiny gold lettering. It includes BioShock: The Collection, which means you are getting all three BioShock games, plus the single-player DLC.

Of course, you don't buy a Collector's Edition if you just want the game. This edition also comes with a numbered certificate of authenticity.

Even the styrofoam is fancy.

The main attraction is this awesome statue, which stands about 11 inches tall. 

Here's a close up of the Little Sister, taking cover behind the imposing Big Daddy.

And, just for comparison's sake, here's how it looks compared to the Big Daddy included in the game's original collector's edition.

To top it all off, the figures light up and the drill rotates. This image doesn't capture the full experience (like the sound effects, for instance), but you get the basic idea.

Want to get one for yourself? The BioShock 10th Anniversary Collector's Edition releases on November 14 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, and costs $200.
