LittleBigPlanet 2 Collector’s Edition adds adorable plushie, costumes for Tron, Muppets, more

The sequel to the game that was at one point described as a game that would never need a sequel has been given a November 16 release date, and LittleBigPlanet fans are already being teased with a whole bunch of new goodies.

First off, in addition to the standard $60 game, there will be a Collector's Edition bundle for $80. It’ll include a lot of exclusive in-game stuff, plus a pair of "game ends" (aka bookends), and a 7-inch Sackboy plushie that is so cute we want to smash it for making our hardened gamer hearts feel so vulnerable. Say it with me: Awwww!

Secondly, the almighty pre-order bonuses have been announced, all of which are in-game costumes:

Amazon: Ratchet & Clank costumes, plus four animal costumes

Best Buy: Toy Story alien costume, plus four animal costumes

GameStop: Tron: Legacy Clu costume, plus four animal costumes

However, if you slap down $80 for the Collector's Edition, you'll get all of these costumes anyway so don't feel pressure to pre-order. And that is what you will want to do, because the Collector's Edition also comes with a Jak costume and a Daxter costume, AND....

A Gonzo costume! Word!

LittleBigPlanet has a pretty impressive track record of licensing a lot of external content, ranging from Metal Gear Solid to Pirates of the Caribbean to Street Fighter. When you're able to get through to the Muppets, though, you know you've hit it big.

    Holy shit did I read that rite?! You can still get the costumes even if you dont preorder!? reCAPTCHA: nothing Karolyi. the fuck is a karolyi?
  • Gameguy94 - July 27, 2010 11:15 p.m.

    I can't believe you get those bookends and plushie for only $20 more. But I only have one problem... the Ratchet and Clank costumes aren't from Gamestop.

    Lets be honest...Little Big Planet is THE game for this gen consoles. Forget Halo, Gears, Uncharted and Fallout, LBP has revolutionised the games industry with fun and creative things to do in videogames. No murdering, no car jacking, just fantastic platforming and cute characters. This box set looks awesome and if its released in the UK i will get it, no questions asked.

  • FunkSoulBrother - July 27, 2010 2:16 p.m.

    @cj12297 If you look at the poster of it, right at the top "available in limited quantity"
  • cj12297 - July 27, 2010 12:47 p.m.

    wait is this only in america and in my other comment i meant is it limited?
  • infernox - July 27, 2010 8:51 a.m.

    yes conman93 they are still playable. i thought they mentioned it in the trailer.
  • nikos_the_great - July 27, 2010 4:44 a.m.

    only 20$ more? I'm definitely buying the collector's edition.
  • Dorito72 - July 27, 2010 4:36 a.m.

    i just crapped my pants about 12 times. i'd pay the whole 20 dollars extra just for the plushie alone. AND GONZO?!? RATCHET AND CLANK?!? ordering this ASAP.
  • FriendlyFire - July 27, 2010 3:59 a.m.

    Where can I find that in Canada!?! I can't find it anywhere and I absolutely NEED that collector's edition D:
  • JoeMasturbaby - July 27, 2010 2:25 a.m.

    for 20$ more its worth it. this may be the first game i ever pre-order, also i want that goddamn plushie.
  • CatrParrot - July 27, 2010 2:15 a.m.

    I want that fucking Sackboy plushie.
  • conchking - July 27, 2010 12:35 a.m.

    Anyone know if the game comes with backwards compatibility to your costumes for LBP 1 because it'll be a pain to make all those costumes again, for example the joker.
  • cj12297 - July 26, 2010 11:18 p.m.

    do you have to preorder the collectors edition or can you buy it whenever
  • sleepy92ismypsn - July 26, 2010 11:16 p.m.

    That LBP2 case looks so shiny. The in game costumes are cool but I mostly just want the game ends and sackboy plushie even though the mouth looks kinda messed up.
  • Conman93 - July 26, 2010 10:57 p.m.

    Holy shit what great costumes. Pretty hefty price though. I probably will get it regardless :) Can someone confirm if the user created levels from LBP1 are playable in this one. I still have a lot more of them to try out
  • Felixthecat - July 26, 2010 10:52 p.m.

  • Cyberninja - July 26, 2010 10:35 p.m.

    sounds like a good deal for a collectors editon
  • Axcleblade - July 26, 2010 10:33 p.m.

    You had me at Sackboy plushie.
