Conceived and realized with the most devoted echelon of video game fans in mind is the suitably plush Halo 5: Guardians Limited Collector’s Edition. Releasing for Microsoft’s Xbox One console alongside the standard and Limited Edition variants, the aptly extravagant set should delight Halo buffs and gaming swag hoarders alike with the veritable cornucopia of exclusive extras brimming from its enormous decorative box.
The Halo 5: Guardians Limited Collector’s Edition ships with a host of digital extras that includes download codes for the full game, Halo: The Fall of Reach Animated Series, REQ (Requisition) packs to unlock premium in-game items, and a free 14-day trial of Xbox Live. As enticing as the digital trimmings are, it’s the physical offerings that are especially appealing. The Halo: 5 Limited Collector’s Edition comes with a Spartan-themed metal disc case, replicas of Spartan Locke’s classified orders, dossiers covering Blue Team and Fire Team Osiris and a metallic Guardian model by Metal Earth. However, the centerpiece of the set is the exclusive statue that fills out the lavish bundle. Produced by Triforce, the roughly 14-inch tall statue depicts the intrepid Spartans, Locke (with or without his helmet), and Master Chief emerging side by side from a mysterious stone portal. Impressive in both its sculpted detail and painted finish, the two-piece (magnetically connected) collector’s edition statue effectively conveys the powerful rift between the two characters within Halo 5’s captivating narrative.
Halo enthusiasts can snag Triforce’s commemorative depiction of the formidable duo of Spartans as part of the Halo: 5 Guardians Limited Collector’s Edition, which released October 20th at the manufacturer’s suggested retail price of $249.99 USD.
