Man, sometimes I'm really glad I'm no longer a collector. If I were, it would be borderline impossible to pass up the newly revealed Ultimate Songbird Edition of Bioshock Infinite, which, among a slew of other goodies, comes with a mighty impressive Songbird statue.
Robb Waters—the concept artist behind the cover of System Shock, the Trickster in Thief, Bioshock's Little Sisters, the Songbird itself, and more—conceived and oversaw production of the statue, which stands at 9.5 inches. It comes packed in a period-style box featuring artwork by Waters and concept artist Jorge Lacera.
The rest of the goodies include a 3" keychain Murder of Crows vigor bottle replica, a 5x7" lithograph, a Handyman miniature from the Bioshock Infinite board game, a mini art book, and various DLC like in-game gear and more. You can interact with some of the content—by spinning the statue 360º for example—at the official website.
The Ultimate Songbird Edition will run you $149.99, while the Premium Edition—which comes with everything but the Songbird statue—is $79.99. Irrational Games says both will be served up in limited quantities, so those looking to snag one or the other can pre-order now.
Bioshock Infinite will be out for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC on February 26, 2013. Anyone plan on indulging in one of these fancy sets?
