Back in 2008, Bungie broke new ground by releasing a “Legendary Edition” of Halo 3 for $130. The move seemed nuts at the time, but die-hard Halo fanboys (myself included) picked up the things in droves. What made this version so pricey? A shiny, plastic cat helmet.
Since that fateful September day, countless other games have followed suit with super-expensive bundles. There was a $90 edition of NBA 2K10 that included a locker, an $80 version of Assassins Creed II with a 8.5 inch figurine, and a $130 bundle of Modern Warefare 2 with night-vision goggles.
Now Disney Interactive has decided to get in on the deal. According to Kotaku, December’s release of Tron Evolution will include a scale model of the iconic Tron light cycle, along with a display case so that you can show off your cool new swag.
Now, typically I would scoff at something like this… but the light cycle in question is produced by none other than Sideshow Collectibles, a company best known for super-detailed, super-pricey replicas of anything everything even remotely related to nerdom.
Granted, the $130 price tag is certainly high, but at least the thing glows. That’s one badass nightlight.
