Syp has a picture of the day a photo of him holding up a Star Trek Online Collector's Edition he bought for $6.50. Which had my fullest understanding, I bought a collector's edition of Final Fantasy XIV for 9.95 over the holidays. With some collector's editions now priced at $150 and more, getting one on the cheap is fun. You never know when you decide to try the game, and if you do you might as well get all the extra CE goodies.
So, are there any collector's editions you bought but didn't play yet? Did you at least get them cheap?
