Star Wars Jedi: Survivor Collector’s Edition
There is also a very special Star Wars Jedi: Survivor Collector’s Edition that’s far more expensive than the two other versions. It’s also hard to find.
The Star Wars Jedi: Survivor Collector’s Edition is a bundle sold by Limited Run Games. It’s $299.99 for all three platforms and it comes with a full-Size functional Cal Kestis replica Lightsaber hilt. Cal Kestis is the game’s main character.
It also has a Premium Magnetic Box which holds Lightsaber Hilt, an official steelbook, and a copy of the Deluxe version of the game.
It’s also completely sold out across the board which means the only way you’ll be able to find the Collector’s Edition is through a resale site like eBay. Unfortunately, the prices on there are astronomical right now.
This edition is aimed at collectors and hardcore Star Wars fans. Most people should buy a standard or Deluxe copy.
