Wasn't this like $150+ when it came out?

It's going free to play; I guess they're just trying to clear their stocks before that point.

I know, I just would be fuming if I spent full price on this at launch.

Since apparently nothing on the site tells you what's actually in it - here you go:

Exclusive Gentle Giant Darth Malgus statue
Game disks collectible metal case
The Journal of Master Gnost-Dural as annotated by Satele Shan
The Old Republic galaxy map
Music of Star Wars: The Old Republic CD
High-quality Collector's Edition box
Custom Security Authentication Key
Includes 7 additional Digital Items:
Flare Gun: Fire flares into the air
Training Droid: Hovers at your side for combat assistance
HoloDancer: Project your own holographic dancer
HoloCam: Keep visual records of in-game adventures
STAP: Sleek and unique in-game vehicle
Exclusive Mouse Droid: Spunky Droid to join your adventures
Exclusive Collector's Edition Store: Unique in-game vendor with an assortment of items

It is going free to play, however, sometime in the near future I think. Now if it works like most other F2P MMOs, having purchased it will afford you some distinct advantage over the F2P people.

Also, here's a picture I found of the stuff in it... too long for an edited post.

Ordered it as soon as I saw it, just got an e-mail about "status change" because the items are no longer available. I'm wondering how many they actually had at this price.

@praeclarus: Sears and Kmart have this problem like the plague (or is it this gopher site?). Anyways, yeah it's not uncommon to order something from either retailer and get a "Your order has been cancelled, refunded, because we cant count." emails. And the gopher site doesnt give you which local store has it in stock, you have to click each one to see "out of stock" till you maybe find one. BUT CALL FIRST!

Any place that advertises having this is selling out in no time. I was lucky, I walked into a game store and noticed a "second price" on the shelf copy. They did in fact have ONE CE box in the back, which I picked up. Yes, it's going F2P. But anyone that has a current subscription gets new Exchange credits, and CE owners get a bonus payout. Not to mention all the goodies inside the box. Darth Malgus sits on my desk at work, as my Sith Administrator mentor. Worth the $30 to me.

@praeclarus: I tried to order this deal on MyGofer and got the same "status change" email, after it told me my purchase had gone through. That was qutie a while after you posted your comment. They don't seem to care about updating their site to remove this deal.

Gamestop had the same price, but was sold out online. I got lucky and got the last one of these at a local Gamestop. According to their site it was the last one within 100 miles. It was hiding in the back of their storage room. Great deal for $30.

I'd keep my eye on Amazon and the Microsoft Store. They still have copies in stock, but the price hasn't gone down yet. Last I checked Amazon had them for $60 and the MS store was still the full $150. I suspect at some point the MS Store might catch on and lower the price.

Just FYI this deal is back on. I just picked one up and it all went through (it's 6:30pm on 9/20).
