If a confirmed release date for Mass Effect Legendary Edition wasn't enough, there's a beautiful collector's edition to celebrate its release that will fulfil any fan's dream.
Known as the Mass Effect Legendary Cache Edition, it doesn't actually come with the game, but contains some of the usual bits such as an exclusive art print, pins, and a stylish box. The edition also comes with two fantastic bits of memorabilia - a mock N7 Acceptance Letter and a complete 1:1 replica of N7 Helmet which is a thing of beauty. Best part? It's actually wearable and lights up!
The Legendary Cache Edition can be purchased through the BioWare Store at a retail price of $149.99. Out of all the collector's editions that have released over the past few years, this is definitely one of the best and we can't wait to get our hands on it.

"it doesn't come with the game"
Well that makes T-Totally, absolutely, zero sense. In that case it just makes sense to buy the game and just pick this up this "fan pack" when is is cheaper later on.
It doesn't come with the game... Lol just lol
So it's just some useless junk they threw together and decided to charge me $150 for?

Does it fit all head sizes? Some people have big heads!
Is that a lazy production way to avoid having to do a different version for PS and Xbox? Most likely...
If it doesn't come with the game, how exactly is it a collector's edition of the game? That's like saying a toilet is a collector's edition of a turd; sure, it's a fully featured working lavatory system, but I still have to pay extra to fill it.
I suppose they want you to buy the digital edition of the game. Or at least not disadvantage those who want that. So instead of having one version of this with a code, and another with disc, they just have one with no game and let you source the game in any format you want.
@kantaroo I think you're probably right, 2 of the new gen machines are diskless and including a physical copy of the game would force them to buy it twice, and including a digital code for the game would just piss off the physical collectors.
Let's not forget when Microsoft did the Halo 5 collector's edition that only came with a digital copy of the game. There was a lot of backlash and Microsoft ended up offering physical copies for the people who wanted it. Bioware also went this route with not including the game in the special editions for Andromeda as well.
@Mr-Fuggles777 I had forgotten about the discless PS5. That's another reason: they can have a platform-agnostic special edition (which is cheaper for marketing and manufacturing).
@sakanakami I'm not sure "Mass Effect Remastered: N7 Edition - it's just like Andromeda!" is the angle EA needed here.
Back when ME1 had come out I would have been all over this. Now..not so much.
Edit: it has a FemShep print. I’m considering this now...dang it.
