    I'd personally love to hear from Sachiko Kawamura, lead art director for all of the main games since Unleashed. The Pixar humans, side-mouth and overall "realistically detailed but bright and Disneyfied" style are all her doing. I love her work on the series.

    Has there been any update on this? Cook and Becker haven't updated their site since October 26th.

    I don't know why I'm asking. I don't have the funds right now to order one.

    I want the Collectors Edition, but really can't justify that price for something that I'll barely look at.

    Just preordered the standard edition. I could and absolutely would preorder the CE, but Blue Blood is right about it being something I'll barely look at. I'm not an extreme collector anyway, so as long as I have the book itself I don't need to waste money on the CE.

    I pre-ordered the Collector's Edition. I'm all into collecting stuff right now and I was just talking about wanting a Sonic art book with a friend the other day, so I'm heaps excited for this.

    Just to clarify, the standard edition isn't limited too, is it?

    Ordered! Yee-haw!

    I'm gonna enjoy this!

    Shame it wasn't ready for the holiday season, would have made for a very decent Christmas morning...

    No. The standard edition is not limited. So if you don't have the funds, but just want the SE, I wouldn't worry about it.

    I've just pre-ordered the standard edition. The collector's edition is like double the price, and doesn't really seem worth it for what you get (in my opinion).

    I'm looking forward to this arriving because it looks really, really nice.

    Decided to hate myself and go with a Collector's Edition for the extra crap I probably don't need. :v: . Still, pretty pumped for this one!

    Also, call me a slowpoke, but I finally had a look at some of the other SEGA prints available on the site. Man, the quality's all over the place, but that Golden Axe one looks crazy good.
