$700 Xbox One Halo 5 Guardians ‘Pink Mist Edition’ Bundle Includes Life-Size Needler Gun Replica

We don't know if Microsoft will catch up and surpass Sony in console sales, but if not, it won't be for a lack of trying. Microsoft has been doing a bang up job with its Xbox One console, both on the software side and in terms of hardware upgrades and bundles. One of the latest -- and arguably the coolest -- is the Xbox One Halo 5 Guardians Limited Collector's Edition - Pink Mist Edition.

It's also the longest name of any Xbox One bundle that we're aware of, which is fitting, because it boasts one of the most robust collections of add-ons and extras. Included inside are all the goodies you get with the standard Xbox One 5 Guardians Limited Collector's Edition, plus a replica Needler Gun and statute.

Needler Gun

No, the replica gun doesn't actually shoot those crystal needles that you see protruding from the top, which are designed to impale an enemy before exploding. However, it does light up and make sounds. Here's a look at the gun's features:

  • LED lights
  • In-game sound
  • Over 14 different needlers mechanically pop up and down in sequence when trigger is pressed -- just like in game
  • Massive size -- real life 1:1 model created from the original digital files used in game
  • Limited edition
  • About 29 inches across over 10 inches tall

It's a pretty sweet keepsake, though it's far from the only thing that's included in the bundle. Microsoft also tosses in a commemorative statue of the Master Chief and Spartan Locke by TriForce, Metal Earth Guardian model, a SteelBook, Spartan Lock'es classified orders and dossiers on Blue Team and Fireteam Osiris, and a bunch of digital content.

As you might imagine, the Pink Mist Edition is pricey. It also appears to be an exclusive for U.K.'s GAME, which has it available to pre-order for £449.99 (just shy of $700 in U.S. currency). On the plus side, shipping to a U.S. address isn't all that expensive (about $8).
