My duty has been fulfilled, then.
There will be a collector's edition for Sins of a Solar Empire Rebellion. With this I leave the post which I have so faithfully slaved upon to this end. I have completed my task, now all that there is left is a bit of patience and a bit of money changing hands and the collector's edition will be here, in my house, with me playing it happily. And when I am not playing it, I can stare at it and think about its glory and awesomeness.
Well, maybe not leave never to return. If I see any new news here, you can bet that I would post something in response.
And I hope that everyone else who has posted on this thread that also wants one of these collector's editions will be able to get one. I mean Yottsu, RedDwarf999, KrdaxDrkrun (man, that is hard to type), Ravagus, Marshal_Radagast, LupusVir, NR2001, GoaFan77 (sorry for spelling your name wrong the other times), Wunderbar_007, Timmaigh, CrimsonWarHawk, Nightraid3r, Pbhead, Unazaki, and even ice27828 (I'm not sure if you will buy one because you don't think that it should cost $100). I would also feel badly if some people were not able to buy it because they were simply too late to click the "pre-order" button. What I propose is that Stardock put a "pre-order collector's edition" button on the Sins store for a certain time and make however many were ordered in that time frame.
I will buy this collector's edition, that is a given. Well, hopefully. It would be really ironic if the person who created the "Rebellion Collector's Edition" post was too late to get one and ended up empty-handed. I am fairly positive that will not happen, though, because, as shown by this post, Stardock listens to their customers, and will put in the extra effort to please them if enough express interest. Therefore I don't think that they would make so few that we were all not able to buy one should it so please us, given that you had the money.
I am sure that the collector's edition will be worth every penny.
P.S.: I hope it doesn't take a child kidney to purchase the collector's edition. I am still in high school and have no children. Nor do I think I will have any before the early summer/late spring.
