We all know that Aliens: Colonial Marines has been delayed until next year, which makes this sweet Collector's Edition all the more painful to behold. The highlight of the CE is the bad-ass resin Powerlaoder-squishing-a-xenomorph statue. I still don't understand how there's not a Powerloader in every garage in America, you know, for gardening and stuff. You can see all the included items in the collector's edition after the break.

That's a lot of swag! The Aliens: Colonial Marines Collector's Edition will cost you $99.99, which is way cheaper than a real Powerloader. You can get a better view of all the included items from the image at the bottom of the page.
What if you don't want to blow a hundred bucks on a Collector's Edition because you don't like toys? Hey, just because you're dead inside doesn't mean you have to miss out on all the fun. Gamestop has a pre-order bonus for you! (Is it just me, or is Gamestop getting a lot of pre-order exclusives, lately?) You can still get the classic Marine skins from the Aliens movie, along with Ripley's Flamethrower. No indication on if you can duct tape it to a M41-A Pulse Rifle.
Oh wait, judging from that pic, that is a flamethrower duct taped to a pulse rifle. Righteous.
