http://www.destructoid.com/batman-arkham-city-collector-s-edition-content-revealed-206345.phtml Retailers GameStop and Best Buy have both listed the $99.99 set which will include an art book, animated Gotham Knight content, "early access" to downloadable add-on content, and a statue. The "premium statue" is designed by Kotobukiya, and will "bring the excitement of the game into the real world," whatever that means. Neither listing shows an image of the in-box goodies, but that sounds more like a diorama than a simple statue of the Dark Knight, if you ask me. (Nick Chester)
