I like to have stuff I can actually show off It's not like I'm going to walk around in public waving around my collectors edition items, especially since most people won't recognize it and will most probably think I'm just some weird otaku It's nice to have something that makes you stand out as being unique and not just some weirdo I vote for in-game exclusives!

Although, in Korea the game has no "edition" whatsoever. It's a P2P model with no initial registration/game purchase fee, alongside a micro-transition store.

I also enjoy physical copies of games, not only for the benefit of having something unique to a game you loved, but due to the fact, i'd rather not have to download a game, when i could just go pick up a disc and have it install in less then 5 minutes.
I buy physical editions of any game i'm going to play that comes with one, and if they come with a special edition, or collectors edition, i buy that over a regular copy.
Another plus side to having a Physical disc, is the ability to quick-share the game, for example, say you have friends (for most of you, it seems like quite the long shot) and they see the game, and want to try it, well, instead of saying "go spend 3-9 hours downloading it!" you can simply hand them the disc, have them install it quickly and start playing. Of course this doesn't work for B2P games, only P2P.
A great many of people have said they want a Figure in the collectors edition, i don't think that is a good idea, i'd love the idea of being able to buy figures later on, but one specific figure picked out for a special edition could ruin sales of it, because not everyone wants the exact same figure.
Art book, T-shirt, Beanie(Tuque), a Scarf, Arm warmers(Sleeve warmers), a physical manual(Not guide book), Playing cards, a locket with your characters picture, a mouse pad, a poster, an Ingame title (My suggestion for this would be "Physical Love") a certificate of authenticity with signatures of the Dev team, an OST CD, Character name reservation(only one), 30 free days(Typical with any Collectors Edition of P2P)
These are just a few things that can come with a Collectors edition that most people won't complain about.
For those people who are.....Larger, the T-Shirt, and arm warmers(Sleeves) of course won't fit you, my suggestion? PUT DOWN THE FORK AND GO FOR A JOG!
As said by others, Mounts are not in the game, so forget the pipe dream of getting one for the CE/SE, won't happen.
And i suggest that NCSoft does NOT give different regions different stuff! DO NOT stiff one region and favor another, this type of thing does hurt the game.
Been following game forever, only made forum account to post my opinion on this matter only.
