The Guillotine Collector's Case for Assassin's Creed Unity.
This edition wasn't named Collector's Edition but rather Collector's case, probably because the game itself wasn't included in this but rather separately. Probably a logistics issue but it could also be to sell the Collector's case separately without the game, later on.
However, as of now, there's still no standalone edition for sale.
Translated to "Liberty, Equality, Fraternity, or Death."
The cool factor about this case is the sliding panel to replicate the Guillotine Blade.
Very nice design..
However, the quality of the case isn't that great. The sides of the case are already a little loose so the 'blade' keeps falling out easily.
Sliding off the panel..
A drawer-like box at the bottom for the rest of the contents..
Not 100% sure, but I believe this is exclusive to the Guillotine Collector's case so a nice Steelbook to have.
The series has always provided wonderful tracks over the years and this year is no different.
Secret Paris Map
This is supposed to be the Secret Paris Map but I can't figure out how to open this up without damaging the seal..
Gorgeous art as always..
Not going to open this up just yet.
Framed Canvas Print
Something new this year.. Last year, we had the 2 canvas prints in the AC IV's Black Chest Edition but this year, they framed up the canvas print, although there's only 1.
Frame is cheap stuff and the print is rather small, but it does look good.
Again, similar to last year.. they have 2 similar-posed Assassins on different bases. This edition comes with the bigger Guillotine base.
The base has quite a lot going on, but the focus is definitely on Arno. Surprised to see the Assassin's emblem missing on the French flag.
Overall, another amazing Collector's Edition for the Assassin's Creed series. It's getting pricier but there's enough content in it, for collectors to be satisfied.
On another note, I have been slacking on the collection updates but that means I'm playing games more these days. Still have plenty of new stuff to update on the blog, including something AC Unity-related.
This item isn't a CE or any of the merchandise that you can buy off retail/online stores. Something special.. Someone has already spotted it on a pic I uploaded on Instagram, but they haven't found out what it is yet.
I'll try to get pics up asap so stay tuned to the blog. If you are on Facebook, do give my page a like to get all the latest updates over here..
