Unleash the dragon! The collector's edition of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim has arrived, and I'm taking you inside a box so epic it takes two generations of Faheys to get the job done.

While it's much bigger than it looked on the internet, the Skyrim Collector's Edition is actually rather light, thanks to the pewter-looking dragon statues inside the box merely looking, cast in a lightweight resin rather that asbestos or lead. Now there's a load off of my mind.

Speaking of mind, mind the small child squeaks during the video, as the mother of my children decided right before the collector's edition arrived was a good time to run to the store. If you'd rather embrace the idea of a baby appearing in the Skyrim unboxing video, imagine the takes I had to do over thanks to well-timed crying fits and know joy.
