Overall Thoughts:

These products are definitely high quality. What I love the most about these is that they’re of a better quality than we would’ve gotten back in the olden days of releases. And even better than that, they’re selling them for the cost of an average game from back then. If you can believe it, there were very limited edition or collector’s editions games back then as well. There certainly were very few multicarts as well back then. I’m proud to have these 2 Collector’s Editions in my collection now. I can’t find much use for something like the notebooks, obviously, but even without those notebooks, the value is still tremendous. With beautiful artwork from OtaKing on R-Type and collaboration with companies such as Figpin, this collection is just not to be missed. If I were reviewing these against other Collector’s Editions, these would score an easy 10/10. I just believe that these are some jaw dropping beauties and if you’re still reading this, you should stop because you’re going to miss your opportunity to get one of the only 2,900 that exist globally!
