    Ultimate Edition for 430 from Amazon?

    Excuse the title, I meant "Ultra" Edition.

    I don't know if I'm allowed to post links (so I won't), but Amazon have PC2 listed as follows:

    Standard game: 33.99
    Collector's Edition: 129.99
    Ultra* Edition: 430

    Dispatched and sold by Amazon. Am I missing something? 430 for a game seems just a little over priced

    It comes with a 1:12 McLaren 720S resin model made by TSM.
    Those models alone are sold for more than 300.

    Not to mention the additional McLaren art book covering the 720S, which is also a limited run. Knowing McLaren, it will be of the highest quality too, having had the privilege of being able to flick through the book given to McLaren F1 owners, back in the day (as a result of having an uncle that designed parts of it). However, the bulk of the price really is as a result of the 1:12 model as Bealdor has already pointed out. 1:12 scale works out at just over 30cm long, you really cannot underestimate just how big and detailed the model is.

    Ooooh... I did not know (or see) that in my mad panic and scanning around the page.

    Thanks for replies, I honestly thought Amazon had made some kind of mistake.

    I bought one from https://www.bol.com about a week ago (PS4 Ultra). It's 429 EUR there incl. free shipping from NL to BE. If I would buy from Amazon.co.uk and calculate that to EUR it would be over 500.

    Hope that model is worth it, a bit of a blind buy gamble. But I got a nice location for it.

    Should get my "it shipped email" the 21st.
