The details on the Collector's Edition have surfaced, and it looks good.

No Caption Provided
Get the ultimate Mass Effect 3 experience with the N7 Collector’s Edition! This exclusive and limited package includes:
  • Premium metal case featuring commemorative artwork of Commander Shepard.
  • 70-page hardbound art book featuring hundreds of unique and gorgeous illustrations from the BioWare development team.
  • Limited edition Mass Effect comic by Dark Horse Comics, complete with unique cover artwork.
  • Join the ranks of the N7 with the premium fabric N7 patch.
  • Exclusive 4x6 lithographic print featuring a one-of-a-kind piece of artwork.
  • A full collection of in-game content that can’t be found anywhere else!
  • N7 Arsenal Pack – Bring the firepower with the N7 Sniper Rifle, Shotgun, SMG, and Pistol.
  • Robotic Dog – A faithful sidekick to keep you company on board the Normandy.
  • Squadmate Alternate Outfit Pack – New appearances for your favorite squad members.
  • N7 Hoodie – For Commander Shepard’s casual days on board the Normandy.
  • Relive all the greatest moments of Mass Effect 3 with the digital soundtrack.
  • Xbox LIVE Normandy prop for your Avatar. (Available on Xbox 360 version only.)
  • Display your initiation in the N7 ranks with a collection of forum and social badges, avatars, and perks.

Looks like a solid CE to me, especially with the litograph and the fact that they seem to hint at a new and improved female Shepard, her becoming a print on the tin casing this time.

I also noticed an interesting piece in it. The squad appearance pack. The dog is what it is and I guess it's Liara on the right in some form of Justicar gear.

But the guy on the left is completely unfamiliar to me. Could that be James Vega? (that is now confirmed to be the case)

Alternate Outfits
Alternate Outfits

The alternate outfits shown in the screenshot are still placeholders and subject to change. When it comes to the ME1 characters it's more about colors, while Vega as a whole is still a placeholder.

Digital Deluxe (Origin) Edition

Details have surfaced over the digital deluxe version that will, as far as I know, only be available through Origin.

  • Digital commemorative artwork of Commander Shepard.
  • 70-page Digital art book featuring hundreds of unique and gorgeous illustrations from the BioWare development team.
  • Limited edition Mass Effect digital comic by Dark Horse Comics, complete with unique cover artwork.
  • Exclusive Digital 4x6 lithographic featuring a one-of-a-kind piece of artwork.
  • A full collection of in-game content that can’t be found anywhere else!
  • N7 Arsenal Pack – Bring the firepower with the N7 Sniper Rifle, Shotgun, SMG, and Pistol.
  • Robotic Dog Companion – A faithful sidekick to keep you company on board the Normandy.
  • Squadmate Alternate Outfit Pack – New appearances for your favorite squad members.
  • N7 Hoodie – For Commander Shepard’s casual days on board the Normandy.
  • Relive all the greatest moments of Mass Effect 3 with the digital soundtrack.
  • Display your initiation in the N7 ranks with a collection of forum and social badges, avatars, and perks.

So pretty much the same as the CE, only digital and no N7 patch. And whether the regular ME3 edition will be made available through Steam, is still left unsaid.

Why does Bioware insist on plastering generic Shepard on everything? I don't know who that man is, give me art of someone who is actually in my game!

I've seen it for $80. I didn't know it came with a Lithograph, I think the amazon one I looked at was missing some of that stuff.

No, but the ass edition does come with an exclusive alternate outfit for Miranda.

Great. I'll start caring when I feel the appearance of a secondary character that I don't care about too much (she was fine in ME2, far from my favorite) affects gameplay in a meaningful way. 
 
Having a robot dog is pretty sick though. But I kinda wish there was an organic-ass dog (almost put "real dog;" remembered stuff in videogames is not real) like in Star Trek Enterprise. That dog was the best part of that show.

I almost feel like I should get it because it's Shepard's last game in this trilogy (though I know they aren't done with these games) and I kind of hate myself for it since I never buy collector editions.

N7 Hoodie – For Commander Shepard’s casual days on board the Normandy.

Is this an in-game item? I'm confused as to why I would want Shepard wandering around in a hoodie. Also, why are hoodies still in existance 100 years from now.

James Sanders has been renamed James Vega. And yes, that is him. There's confirmation on the official forums by Priestly.

It's Liara in a Samara "inspired" reskin of her standard armor.

I honestly would've liked an even bigger Collector's Edition with some more stuff in there, but this is fine. I'll pre-order it.

No, Marketing head on the bioware forums that they wanted to have a 'uber elite' edition but those plans have fallen through. Jarret Lee

Hi guys - this is not intended to rival any "uber edition"...nor is it priced as such! :) This is the Collectors Edition, along same lines as the ME2 CE and the ME1 CE.

Though I had been hopeful, the uber edition doesn't look like it will materialize I'm sad to report. There's no single reason I can give you, it came down to a large number of factors.

At least he wont die like all my fish in ME2.

Pre-ordered already. So pumped. However, those N7 weapons don't look like entirely unique models. The shotgun is the eviscerator, the pistol is the phalanx, and the SMG is the tempest. I'm pretty sure the sniper rifle has been used before too. However, they're probably just placeholders--kinda like how in the demos they were using the Mattock, but it had the icon for the Vindicator. 
 
Man, I'm feeling like a humongous nerd.

Also, if that would have been Samara, which would have been strange in its own to give her Her own suit as an alternate costume, she must have gotten a serious breast reduction and jaw line adjustment.

Samara is definitely one of the few Asari you can tell apart at a distance.

The retailer here in Sweden, that I buy my games from, has listed the exact same specs as on here. So from that, and the fact that I believe the previous two Collector's Edition came with the same stuff on all regions, it's no difference between the regions.
