A little disappointed the collectors edition is just the Bring arts figures. At least I know I won’t be dropping $200 and can stick to the deluxe edition.

Edit: Wait...dont tell me that is the boxart?

Toys of toy versions of the gang. My god I'd totally grab that if it didn't meant taking out a mortgage. That deluxe steelbook though, MMPH! Gotta have it!

Fastest pre-order of my life.

Honestly surprised that three Bring Arts didn't make the price higher.

Isn't the Bring Arts package a really good deal, though? Like, I thought that those figures cost a fortune. If you're already planning on buying the figures and the game, you're probably saving a lot of money doing that. I'm not buying it, of course, but someone is interested I'm sure :)

@notnow thats not the box art... it just isnt ready to be revealed yet.

KH3D had a placeholder art like that as well til it was closer to launch. Nomura's gotta have time to draw the new box

If I were to get a Bring Arts figure though it would just be Sora. I don’t need all 3. That’s just me personally.

Bring Arts are usually about $80 USD
So adding them onto the normal Deluxe Edition is $150 for three figures. That's the equivalent of a $10 discount on one and another being free altogether.

If you pre-order it on amazon and get it this early, that'll be crazy.

Not too bad, then! I mean, I won't spend the money on them for sure, but that's actually better than I expected. I'm so jaded with preorder bonuses nowadays, but KH has usually had pretty tame ones. This might be a little too tame for me, actually.

It's just a placeholder and it's the same placeholder they've been using for years.

They probably ship it on that day and you receive it on the 29th.

What a disappointment, it's the same crap as with the other limited editions, just with an additional charge this time around.

Who needs those all those horrible looking pins and why are these "artbooks" always so small?

Is it just me or do you guys have problems preordering too? I can't check out. Neither on my PC nor my phone.

I wish I could get the figures too but I don't live where the SE store lets me get stuff from them. I wonder what the digital deluxe editions will be?
