Get intimate with Skyrim Collector’s Edition before release

We have previously given you an indication of how big the Collector’s Edition of Skyrim is after Bethesda paraded it around their offices a few months back, but now we have an unboxing of the full package in the flesh for you to check out.

If you have pre-ordered the Collector’s Edition for a mighty $149.99, you’ll be very interested to know what the contents look like close up if you haven’t already seen them before. Courtesy of PCWorld, we can bring that to you now as the contents of their Collector’s Edition for the Xbox 360 have just been opened up for the world to see, without dropping any big spoilers before release.

It’s common knowledge that Skyrim is now in the hands of reviewers as they spend as much time playing the game as possible before the embargo lifts on November 10, just a day before Bethesda’s big launch. For those of you spending the extra money for that ultra-cool 12-inch PVC Alduin Dragon, here’s what it looks like close up:

As you can see from the picture, the model actually comes in two parts, the statue itself and the wall. You can easily connect the two up as shown in the included diagram to make your dragon (which we’re sure you’re gonna name) rest on it. For those of you that have still not seen the Skyrim map, another picture gives an indication of how big the map will actually be, and the fact that it will use a special type of material other than just a standard paper map.

Finally, the Collector’s Edition also includes the 200-page Skyrim artbook and also a making-of DVD which apparently lasts about 20 minutes in length and includes commentary and further gameplay from Bethesda. As we mentioned earlier this week though, there is no room for the official music soundtrack in the Collector’s Edition, as rumors are suggesting that it’s going to be a separate buy for $30.

How many of you have pre-ordered the Collector’s Edition of the game? Perhaps more importantly, where are you going to store your dragon statue and huge map?
