A little story about getting this CE. I think this was the most troublesome LE for me to get. The issue was my credit card. I couldn’t preorder the game on Amazon.ca due to my credit card expiring before the release of the game. Waiting for my new card was a waste as the card never came & I had to call to get a new one resent again. Because of the wait, I wasn’t able to get the game in a safe manner. Had to search for stock & found a Best Buy in the next city having little stock left. Drove down there after doing a store pickup order & paid in cash which I don’t like doing for games.
Back to the unboxing.
The CE comes with 3 iron-on badges, a CD (gasp!) soundtrack, a weapon pack DLC, a 5″ X 7″ lithograph, a 15″ X 19″ double sided island map & poster, & Lara Croft figurine. All packed in a survival tin box. If you preordered the game, you will get a preorder bonus. Depending on the retailer you preordered from, you will get some slightly different items. But all retailers got the Aviatrix skin & Shanty Town multiplayer map DLCs.
The Lara figurine is actually the Play Arts figurine from Kotobukiya that you can buy separately in Japan. It comes with everything that the retail version has. The only difference is missing packaging. Big price difference there. I will review this figurine some time in future (if I actually can) on my main site.
Last item in the CE is the 3 iron on badges. I don’t think these are iron on badges as it has stitching. It may be an iron on since I don’t know. When I had iron on badges in my time, they were thin & plastic like. Almost like those temporary tattoos you buy from a toy store. Those were the days.
That’s it for the unboxing of Tomb Raider Collector’s Edition. Great package for a good price. That Lara figurine is a steal in this package.
