Maybe when it's cheaper I'll pick it up

Getting cheaper won't happen if they only release a very conservative number of prints.

I guess it would be worth buying if you're a collector, but for a common gamer, I don't think so, since these game guides can be found online on some game sites

"three holographic lithographs"

That's it...that's the only collectibles you get in it. I thought being old guides this thing would be littered with special unique goodies from the games.

It has a nice slip case. Other than that, this being a collectible is kind of a stretch for me. I have the originals, and all three together, 2 in pristine condition, one in very good condition, are worth more than this set is new, and since this set is likely to be easy to find in the future, it's probably not going to increase in value, so it really is for the collector who wants something pretty to display.

Lithographs have never been that appealing to me. They are never high enough quality for me to want to mount in a frame or anything. Usually they're just cheap crap, and I could easily just print something off the internet which is much better...albeit not holographic.

Collector's Edition strategy guides are pretty much a rip-off. They never include anything that is worth the extra $10-20 you spend on them.

Short answer: no.
Long answer: the Internet exists.

and if you're a hardcore fan (the only person who would buy this) you already know all of the secrets and strategies for these games. Waste of money unless you're a collector. I don't get why these came out since all of the games already had strategy guides.
