Batman Arkham: Origins NA collector's edition stars The Joker


The Batman: Arkham Origins collector's edition for North America, Australia and New Zealand runs $120 and includes a terrifying, yet oddly alluring, statue of The Joker surrounded by LED-lit TVs. The statue is 9 inches tall, 13 inches wide, 11.5 inches in depth and probably a 7 on a "this will scare young children" scale.

More physical goodies included in the collector's edition are two pieces of evidence from the Gotham crime lab, an 80-page art book, a Batman "wanted" poster, blueprints of the batwing, an Anarky logo stencil, a glow-in-the-dark map of Gotham City, the Wayne family photo and dossiers on all eight assassins out to get Batman, including Black Mask's contract.

Digital items include the First Appearance Batman Skin and the Deathstroke Challenge Pack. North American customers get Necessary Evil, a documentary of DC Comics' most famous villains, and PS3 owners in all regions get the Knightfall pack.

The European collector's edition appeared earlier in August, running £80 and including, overall, less stuff, and certainly a less creepy Joker statue. Examine the North American statue in greater detail here.
