over on gamestop.com the announced a collectors edition of the game. heres what it contains.
2-Sleeve Digi-pack, including:

Game disc
Behind The Scenes of LEGO Harry Potter
Fun on the Set of Harry Potter
Exclusive Behind-the-Scenes Look at Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows™
Exclusive set of 4 House Crest LEGO magnets
Download code for exclusive Xbox LIVE® LEGO Harry Potter Avatar Item

it costs 69.99 over the original of 49.99.
personally, it seems like a huge ripoff. 20 bucks for some magnets and an avatar item? i guess the behind the scenes stuff is pretty cool. but still.

If it had been those extras for the same prize $49.99 (which would end up being unfair for those who buy the normal one) I would have gotten it, but I'll just wait for the prize to drop.
I'm a huge fan of HP, and even though I enjoy behind the scenes, specials and trailers, I don't think it's something worth paying for, or that anyone should pay for those things, trailers are to get you interested in something, and behind the scenes used to be part of DVDs and movie packs as an extra.
If it where pins instead of magnets, but I don't like magnets.

if it wasnt $20 more id be all over it like cream cheese on a bagel.

although i do have a $25 gift card from ebgames/gamestop that i could use...but i probably should save that for something i really want

so heres to hoping they drop the price at least $10. ten over the orignal price seems like a decent price to me

Sucks, UK only get standard edition and Harry Potter & The Philosophers Stone DVD as a pre-order bonus from most stores, which I already have.

I agree. Not worth the money.

if youre a fan of the films and books then it is highly worth the money to get the collectors because of the dvd with the interviews, gags and behind the scenes of Deathly Hallows.

the only way someone would find this not worth it is if they werent a fan of the films in which case, they wouldnt even need to speculate on getting the collectors edition

keep im mind that this isnt halo or fallout, its harry potter, they arent going to make a statue or anything crazy for the collectors edition, theyre going to promote the next movie which is great

I would have paid $10 extra for the collectors edition but $20 is just too much. I can't imagine that the behind the scenes stuff is really worth it. It would be cool sure, and the avatar item would be nice but not for $20 more.

UK pays no extra for this Collector's Edition, sounds like a great deal to me! :woop:

I might get the CE of this, I don't know. Seems like a lot for nothing. I wish it was $10 more, at most. I'm sure the behind the scenes footage will pop up on the internet shortly after the game comes out. So you're pretty much paying $20 for some magnets and an avatar item. Poor PS3 owners getting just some magnets for $20.
