Found 27th Oct
Wanted this when it was released but not willing to pay the £80 at the time. This is a quite a bit better offer for those who like this sort of thing.... like me !

This is for PS4 according to the link to Amazon

No need for Prime on this one.

Looks nice but I’m sure I read reviews around release saying it was poorly made... considering you can get the game for around £15, that’s some expensive tat

He is talking about the statue etc itself, which is poorly made.

I am betting very much that this will be heavily reduced in black friday. probably to £30 which i think is still to much.

Very bad deal since you get a Digital code and the Statue is badly made I would not give them £15 for it!!

Oh sorry I didn't realise this deal was only for the collectors statue …Oh sorry I didn't realise this deal was only for the collectors statue itself. Sincere apologies.

This bundle dose include the digital code for the games.

CE still isn't worth that price. The statue is really shoddy. I returned mine.

Wouldn't pay more than £30 or so for it frankly.

There was a massive chance missed here to make this something awesome. I was praying for a physical release with a box styled on the original Megadrive game boxes. Instead we got a digital code and a load of thrown together bits of tat, which sort of sums Sega up in general really. Could have been amazing, but they dropped the ball. Again.Such a waste!

As other comments have stated, avoid this collector's edition. The quality is terrible and not even worth half what it currently costs. Just buy the game separately and enjoy the hell out of that because it's truly awesome.

No offence OP but I don't think this is even worth £10, it's made of cheap quality and there is no physical game either.

I really wish they would just release the physical game with say a nice quality figure of sonic for a reasonable price and I'd be all over it.

Buy the soundtrack instead, it comes with the a download code for the files and the vinyl is really pretty:

No automatic alt text available.

Still, if you're set on the collectors edition this looks like the best price so far, I just think the soundtrack is better value and feels quality compared to what I've heard about the bits that come with the collectors edition.

I will you give you heat because it's the cheapest it's been, but be warned I sent two back, the first looked like it had been kicked around the warehouse a few times before it got to me, the second sonics nose was missing, it wasn't even in the box to glue back on.

i had this on pre-order and returned it the day it arrived. the sonic looks like a knock off £5 toy you would find at a market stall.

Two things to consider before purchase.

1) Amazon are physically incapable of getting this out the warehouse in good condition. Expect a bashed up box with a good few rips in the sleeve. I had 2 PS4 editions (both returned) and one switch edition before I had something bordering on acceptable. Not mint or good - acceptable!

2) As mentioned contents build quality is very disappointing. Very light statue. Of greater concern though is quality control from the factory. The two I returned had horrible and very visible marks/scores/scratches on the mockup mega drive console part of the statue. They looked terrible and totally distracted from the actual statue. I cannot believe I was unlucky twice - I'm guessing this is widespread.

HOWEVER, despite the above criticisms if you can get a box and statue in reasonable condition it's nice to have. Statue, mock cartridge and box are great display pieces for any games room.

Still not worth the money though (*although neither is much of the add-on tat us gamers buy).

In the interest of balance I bought this from Amazon. No damage to the statue or box but it was missing the game code!
The statue if you get one in pristine condition is decent and colourful. The build quality might be questionable but it sits on a shelf so is more than up to the job.
Seems a lottery if you get a decent one but it’s not quite as bad as the comments might lead you to believe. I for one will be keeping it.

Appears to be PS4 not obvious from title, but might be for other formats too?

Yeah, totally agree about Amazon's handling. Mine arrived with a massive tear down the side of the box, so the box wouldn't even stay together.

As I said above though, I didn't even bother with a replacement considering all the other complaints about the same thing, and the fact that the CE was so poor anyway.

I must've got a rare good one of these. Worth checking Amazon.com though, I got it on release from there including delivery for £43. The UK site was an absolute rip off at £79.

I have the CE, and the statue looks nice when displayed. Being a premium statue collector (resin) I know you can't expect premium quality at this price. You get what you pay for, and it's quite acceptable i might add. Yes its light. so what?
People expecting anything better for 50-80£ have unreasonable expectations (a bit too glossy, maybe)
