While Turbine has already offered online account upgrade options for those with Lord of the Rings Online, some of us just can't resist a well put together Collector's Edition box when it comes to our favorite games. In grand fashion, Turbine has certainly rolled out a sweet box set for Mines of Moria. In the Moria CE, you're treated to goodies like a large (22" square) cloth map of Moria, a replica of the One Ring with a pouch, lots of art and music, a starter's guide, 3 in-game item tokens and a special badge for the forums. Add to that the pre-order bonus that nets you a Moria cloak, the "Moria Expeditionary" in-game title, and a return of the highly-praised $199 lifetime pricing, plus still more - and you can see why we'd be oohing and aahing over the Mines of Moria Collector's Edition pre-order.

This morning we thought we'd ask our Lord of the Rings Online fans - did you heed the call of the Collector's Edition and pick one up? If not, did you opt for a pre-ordered copy, or did you take the online account upgrade option to save yourself from having yet another game box in your house? Maybe you purchased the Collector's Edition, but went ahead and pre-downloaded everything anyway just so you could jump in Moria that much sooner. We know we can't be the only ones who geek out on a good Collector's Edition, so let us know.
