    Can't afford to get mine in right away, hopefully that doesn't mean I miss out but from the wording there'll be a new batch after the 5,000.

    I was hoping that Nicalis would pick up Yooka-Laylee...

    Kingdom: New Lands also coming from them with a special edition.

    I'd much rather LRG release yooka laylee as a full LE, rather than nicalis cramming a few goodies in the case

    I've almost bought the ps4 version a few times, glad i held out for the likely switch physical

    3000 copies(most of which going to scalpers) does sound much better then the tens of thousands of copies that could have been made by Nicalis. Thus everyone getting a fair chance at actually owning a copy.

    It'll be open preorder no doubt for the standard edition though. I'd rather have a full soundtrack and steelbook which nicalis haven't done yet, and i've not had issues ordering their LE's to date

    Its just an opinion, but thanks for the sarcasm all the same ;-)

    I see your point. Sarcasm has always been my tool to escape depression, couldn't imagine life without it mate ;)

    The whole scalpers getting loads of copies is nonsense, they've stated before it simply isn't the case. Do scalpers get them? Of course they do, but its like 1-2% of the orders. If it was most of the orders there would be 1000s on eBay which there just isn't

    I've been ordering from LRG from the beginning, 40+ orders and only 1 I missed because I had an internet outage which I later got on eBay for the exact same price. We've got it even better with the switch games since its open pre-orders so its pretty hard to miss ordering short of going to Mars for 2 weeks.

    Nicalis on the other hand I find irritating since I like to get European copies and they sometimes do them, sometimes don't, but don't communicate any of it which is very reminiscent of Aksys for the vita where suddenly they're like "oh we know you've imported a copy but here's an EU version 3 months after the fact"

    I forgot about the EU/NA situation... i'm not going for a complete set on switch though so it doesn't bother me like it would for vita. I used to be concerned about the DLC situation as well.... but in the last 2 years i have never bought any dlc.... so i've written that off as an excuse

    I'm all in for this, and starting to hope they do an ad hoc steelbook for thimbleweed park given it is the only LRG release without one at the moment.

    Picked up a night trap LE yesterday. Didn't bother with the cards, pin or Vinyl though.

    Anybody else adding this to their collection

    Yep. Still 100% on all the LRG collector’s editions. Haven’t spent more on the little bits and bobs on their site though.

    I've bought the other bits for their other releases i'm more interested in... but night trap doesn't hold the nostalgia for me like other people. I just wanted to keep the 100% on both the games and those awesome steelbooks from LRG

    Has anyone in the UK received their Thimbleweed Park LE yet? It was an expensive order for me due to getting all the fangamer extras so i'm a little concerned it isn't here yet. Can't find the tracking number email... which means it may not have shipped yet?

    Mine cleared customs yesterday, though I didn't go for any of the Fangamer merchandise.
