went to gamestop today and asked if there was any info on a CE of AC3, while he was checking i noticed that they're inventory notebook was lying open so i started to check it out and go through it, and what did i find, NOT A **** THING, it only says Assassin's Creed III with limited edition Tin Case, very disappointing, the clerk also found nothing and he's just as worried as everyone else that, at least in the U.S., we'll only get something like the signature edition for ACR. i only brought this up because i worked at a retail store on Ft. Lewis and we got all our games between 4 to 6 months before release

As long as the statues are as good as the previous ones I'd be satisfied.

Yeah, it is best to be patient because the game's release is still a long way to go. It would be kinda bad to just give North America/United States a Revelations' style Signature Edition when the third game takes place during the American Revolution.
I asked and made the statement on AC's Facebook page regarding the showing or confirmation of a NA CE. This was the official response I got from them...
Seems to indicate we're getting something. What and when would still be nice to know.Assassin's Creed We hear you, we just want to make sure that everything is perfect... I'm sure you understand. AC3 is the biggest thing we've ever done, so we have to come correct at every step in the process.4 hours ago ·
On the other hand, Ubisoft did try to release a higher quality statue but the results are still less than satisfactory. This is in regards to the Ubicollectibles "Ezio's Fury" which costs more than SSC premium formats, it's smaller, made out of more fragile material, has a higher edition size, and has poor paint apps. I guess I'm just trying to say that if Ubi ain't willing to satisfy a collector who pays $375+ for a statue they definitely won't try to deliver with a statue that's included in a CE.
That's the same with the Nathan Drake statue: Sony wasn't willing to spend time and money to give loyal fans a high quality statue and instead commisioned SSC to sculpt a cheapo statue. Therefore I don't believe that statue accurately represents what SSC really stands for: high-quality statues.
