Special edtion or standard?

Im on the fence about this one:

Shogun 2: Total War - Limited Edition Includes:
Shogun 2: Total War - Limited Edition
Collector's box "Art of War" bamboo book replica
Takeda Shingen Daimyo figurine
Exclusive Shogun 2 artbook
Hattori Ninja Clan - The Hattori clan are masters of the Iga-ryu ninjutsu - a unique collection of martial skills and guerrilla techniques. This additional in-game faction is only available in the Limited Edition and includes the most powerful battlefield ninja units

Extra historical scenario - The Battle of Nagashino saw an alliance between the Oda and Tokugawa clans clashing against the legendary Takeda clan in 1575. Takeda was ultimately defeated but, as in all Total War battles, victory lies in your hands and by playing one of these three factions you can repeat history... or even rewrite it!

Special armour for your avatar - This complete set of armour will make your General's avatar stand out on the battlefield and will reward you with the Bad Omen retainer that affects morale to enemy ashigaru (foot soldier) units, giving you a competitive advantage online.

Bank account of XP for your avatar - Only the Limited Edition owners will be able to start their General's avatar at a higher level, with instant access to one upgrade point to spend on special skills or traits

But it costs double the price....
Just wondering what others are gonna do. Iam tempted, for the model and for the bonus content but does it warrant the price tag?

Just be careful when reading advertising as the Limited Edition is not supposed to include the figurine and such. That is the collector's edition. The limited edition is a pre-order offer that includes the ninja clan, armour, xp and such. Some times advertisement has these editions mixed up, and you might end up ordering the wrong one

Thanks Xiriod. I saw it on play.com. Here have a look

Although it says Collectors Edition, in the product description it refers to the Limited Edition. Iam thinking its safe to assume i would be getting the figurine with it though.

So am i the only one tempted by the Special Edition? The only thing that puts me off is the price tag. Do you think we will get the bonus content as DLC later on? If so, i think ill pass on the special and just play the standard one until it arrives as DLC. I dont mind DLC, as long as they are more akin to the expansion packs of old, not just units like what we got with Empire. The War Path campaign is more like the DLC i would rather see to be honest.

Everything is worth what the purchaser will pay for it So if it's worth it to you, why not.

Personally I ordered the limited edition for the ninja-clan. I am sure it will be available 3-4 months down the road as a DLC-addon just as it was in Empire.
