Bethesda has the The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Collector’s Edition, which comes with a dragon statue. Yes. A dragon statue.

Poised to look rather smashing on our bookshelf, in addition to the 12-inch tall statue of Alduin the world eater, folks who purchase the collector’s edition will get:

  • ‘The Art of Skyrim’ Official Art Book. Featuring over 200 pages of striking, full-color illustrations, sketches and models, this stunning 9 3/8” x 12 1/8” coffee table book showcases the characters, creatures, environments, and weaponry of Skyrim. With a foreword by game director Todd Howard and commentary from Bethesda Game Studios artists, readers will be guided through the game’s iconic visual style.
  • ‘The Making of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim’ DVD. This documentary DVD contains exclusive, behind-the-scenes footage, including interviews with the Bethesda Game Studios team as they take you from concept to creation and provide insights into the story, gameplay, setting, legacy of the Elder Scrolls franchise, and much more.

“We always say that we make the games we want to play. We can also say we create the collector’s editions we’d want to own,” said Pete Hines, VP of PR and marketing for Bethesda. “We all want one of these!”

The “extremely limited” Collector’s Edition will be available through pre-order and retails for $149.99/€149.99/ £129.99 and $199.99 in Australia.
