** This is to be averted with Manga UK's upcoming re-release of the first season of Manga/AttackOnTitan, with a complete collection featuring all of the extras on DVD.
* Anime Limited will be doing this in the UK with their releases of Anime/FullmetalAlchemist, with an ultimate edition including a resin replica of the Gate of Truth, an artbook, art cards and even a certificate with the buyer's name and State Alchemist rank, signed by King Bradley.
* Anime Limited are also going to release an ultimate edition of Anime/DeathParade in the UK.

** ''Spearhead From Space'' will end up with three different [=DVD=] editions: the original one, the expanded version released in the ''Mannequin Mania'' box, and a 2013 UsefulNotes/BluRay edition (as the only story made entirely on film other than the 1996 TV movie, it won't look rubbish in HD).

* Music/{{Epica}} did this in 2007 with "The Divine Conspiracy" featuring a high-quality hardbound digibook, and again with their 2012 release, "Requiem for the Indifferent." There are a few editions but the super-high-end "Mailorder Edition" includes the album, an instrumental version of the album, postcards featuring album art, and a certificate of authenticity indicating which copy out of a limited run of 500 the customer has received, all wrapped up in a pine box with the Epica logo and album title woodburned into the cover. Interestingly, these may wind up proving valuable in the future, as some early releases went out with an unfinished version of the album's closing track, "Serenade of Self-Destruction", that was missing most of its vocals and so may be considered collectible sometime in the future. Ebay jockeys, start your auctions.

* While Dutch Pinball's ''Pinball/TheBigLebowski'' does not include a separate special edition, early purchasers will receive a ''Lebowski''-themed rug (complete with bowling references) that can be placed under the game.

* Music/JeanMichelJarre:
** The golden Original Master Recording edition [=CDs=] of ''Music/{{Oxygene}}'' and ''Equinoxe''.
** The limited box set ''The Laser Years'' exclusively contained ''Cities In Concert'', an ''In Concert Houston-Lyon'' special variant with all music in full length that is, until ''In Concert Houston-Lyon'' was replaced by ''Cities In Concert'' as part of the regular back catalog during the 1997 remastering.
** The original eleven-track ''Jarremix'' with an additional Laurent Garnier remix has inofficially become that.
** ''The Complete Oxygène'' is ''Music/{{Oxygene}}'' and ''Oxygène 7-13'', the latter with a bonus track called "Oxygen In Moscow", in a tall black cardboard case. Today, the case is the only reason to buy ''The Complete Oxygène'' because the bonus track is actually Claude Monnet's "Oxygène 12" remix also available on ''Odyssey Through O2'', and even then you'll have a hard time fitting that box anywhere into your collection as it's even taller than a DVD case.
** ''Aero'' came out as [[VanillaEdition a CD]], a CD with a video DVD of Anne Parillaud's eyes while listening to the album (as seen on the cover) ''and'' a CD with a 3-D video DVD of Anne Parillaud's eyes.
** ''Oxygène New Master Recording'' also came along with a video disk containing the ''Oxygène Live In Your Living-Room'' performance recording.

* Games Workshop can be notorious for this. They've frequently released special edition book, charging 5 times the amount of the regular book. The only difference between the two books ''is the cover''.

** Just to make matters worse, the special edition books are usually army books, which often end up battered and broken from the wear and tear of regular use on the gaming table. So if you want your expensive special edition book to stay in good condition, you can't even use it for its intended purpose!

Worth it? Depends on the individual work, as well as who you ask. In any case, this is a good marketing strategy, because it feeds into many people's compulsion to own the "best" version. It's particularly clever if you can get people to buy the "ordinary" (some more "[[VanillaEdition ordinary]]" than others) version, discover how cool it is, and then go shell out ''again'' for the Limited Special Collector's Ultimate Edition.

[[caption-width-right:350:You'd think this would be the ''normal'' edition [[DevelopmentHell after sixteen years.]][[note]]Pictured: A comic book, a bust of the title character, a certificate of authenticity, a pair of dice, a miniature deck of cards, poker chips, postcards, "foldable paper craft", a sticker, a hardcover book of art, the box it all came in, and last, but definitely not the least, the game itself.[[/note]]]]

* Anime [[TheMerch merchandise]] also has this tendency, especially figurines; often an altered figurine gets released at the same or later, but the only noticable difference is the paintjob such as non-standard colours for the hair or clothes, though there are also examples where even the skin colour is different (tanned, for example), or a different facial expression. ''Usually'' the super-special version costs the same as the original, thus offering fans a legit choice, but sometimes the special one is only available at conventions or online and then typically ''much'' more expensive.
