No Sacktoy for LBP2 Collector's Ed

But avatars and costumes included.

There's no plushy Sackboy toy snuggled inside the Collector's Edition of LittleBigPlanet 2 - the treats this time are virtual.

They are five PSN avatars and seven LBP2 costumes. Those costumes are Toy Story 3's Alien, Tron: Legacy's Clu, The Muppets' Great Gonzo and Even More Animals' Crocodile, Vulture, Cobra and Mandrill.

Pictures of them can be found on the European PlayStation blog.

That Collector's Edition should set you back £50 in most shops, but the RRP is £59.99, so some may go higher.

Sony has also arranged some pre-order bonuses at various shops. These offer yet more costumes, this time for iconic PlayStation heroes Jak, Daxter, Ratchet and Clank.

LittleBigPlanet 2, after a recent delay, will now launch in January 2011. The extra time enables more feedback from the beta to be taken on board so the package can be nipped and tucked to perfection.

This also allows MM some space to look at how Move can work with LittleBigPlanet 2. In October, Eurogamer revealed that a disc containing 10 demos of Move working with LBP2 will be included with the game.

Media Molecule turned up to the Eurogamer Expo 2010 this year to show off its game. Ambitiously, the MM talk was based around building an LBP2 level using ideas shouted out by the audience - you! Are they mad?!

That remarkable event can be watched below - it aptly displays the versatility and power of LBP2 (albeit in the hands of an expert).

A giant zombie panda! You got it.
