"Anything is only worth what you're willing to pay for it." -My Dad
It's actually pretty true. One person will look at it and see it as a bargain, while you perhaps will see it as a bit of a rip-off. If you have no interest in the Noble Statue than it's not going to seem worth the price. To me, it is more than worth it given what statues of similar size usually go for. On average, "10 statues can cost around $80-. Some have a price tag of $135-, almost as much as the entire contents of the Legendary edition. Limited, numbered, and hand painted statues are pure collectibles, and they can get pricey. So if the Nobel statue would fetch an average of $80-, that means the rest of the Legendary edition would cost you the asking price for the Limited edition. So in that respect, you're getting the flame armor for free. Not too bad of a deal really.

If you know how to save money, it's really not as expensive as it looks.
For example, can you save a dollar a day? If you begin saving starting today, you'll have $98 by the time Reach comes out, more than enough to buy the Legendary Edition on top of the money you would have used to get the standard edition.
The question is, will they stop taking preorders before then? Limited and Legendary supposedly have a set production number. So by that time you wouldn't be able to order one.
