Do you like special editions of video games? Awesome! Do you like paying $1250 for said special editions? Wait, where are you going?

Special editions are all well and good. But there's value for money, and then there's Ubisoft's latest offering: the Dawn of the Creed Collector's Case Legendary Edition.

It comes with a 73cm resin figurine of the new protagonist and his eagle, original art cards, a steelbook, art book, soundtrack, season pass, a hand-drawn map, and a whole bunch of swag.

That costs $1249.50.

No, really.

Here's some close-ups of the resin figurine, if that'll convince you to drop a grand-and-a-bit.

But really, if you pay this much money for this you have too much money. Or you really, really, really love Assassin's Creed.

For $1250, you'd bloody well have to.

    It's a pretty big figurine. But even still, it isn't anything worth that price imo. EBGames has the bundle with the smaller figurine listed for $180 and even that is too much!

    Just to put this into perspective, you could buy two Cocoon Create 3D printers for less than this, or nearly any variant of the GTX 1080 graphics card. Similarly, the Titanfall collector's edition statue (https://s.aolcdn.com/hss/storage/adam/a9bf1c0f6d0ab8ba7df7d611a48219d/32431-header.jpg) was 18", pre-assembled with meticulous detail from many, many parts, and was only around $350. It also had light-up functionality.

    How can this AssCreed statue justify anything over $500, which is still being generous.

      To be fair, this statue is 73cm tall - that's 28 inches. This Nightwing statue (https://www.sideshowtoy.com/collectibles/dc-comics-nightwing-prime-1-studio-9027821/), from Sideshow Toys, is also cast in resin, a similar scale, and RRPs for 935 USD, which is just about the 1250AUD this one costs. That's a limited edition of 350, where this one is an edition of 1000, but still the price isn't entirely out of the ordinary for a similar product from another company.

      It's still ridiculous and I can't imagine anyone buying it, but I don't know that they're being particularly ridiculous with the price once you accept that it exists.

      I'd like to see how Ubisoft can justify this at all, and convince me at the same time. Judging just by the up close pics of the resin figure, it looks just like any other figurines they release any other year, just much bigger in size, but still the same materials. The statue itself looks great, and if they sold that on its own for $125 it'd be even better ;)

    Im guessing this Ubisoft trying to get enought money to stave off Vivendi from taking them over.

      I'm hoping they fail. I've wanted to see that company burn for years now.

    who buys this shit?
