Default 5th Edition Pre-Order Info

Hey Everyone,
I just wanted to mention the recent rumor about the 5th Edition pre-order rumors regarding a "Gamer's Edition". Contents are said to include:

-The 5th Ed Rule Book
-Green game templates (similar in color and construction to the Apocalypse templates)
-Counters and markers (including a turn indicator, run markers, vehicle damage markers, etc...)

-It come packaged in some type of green "Ammo Crate" that has a top handle and can be used as an army transport (it may fit foam trays)

Rumored price: $90 USD

Enjoy!

Well assuming the book is the same cost as the 4th ed its only 15-20 pounds more than just getting the book when everyone needs that anyway

Yes, I did get it, or... I reserved it. It is $90, and the crate is metal and can hold figure case foam. The templates are cool-lookin' Apocalypse-esque (green and heavier in design). And the counters are green aswell.

There will also be a "Special Edition" 5th edtition book, very similar to the 25th Anniversary Fantasy book. But this also will be very expensive.

Sorry, I saw it on a poster at the US HQ Bunker today. It was a very small picture, and I can't find any pics on the web anywhere. All I could even make out is that they are the same color as the Apocalypse templates (and the new ones too), and they were like vehicle damage counters, wound counters and things like that.

Could you tell us where they can be reserved?

Do I have to go to a store or can it be done online?

Also, can it be reserved in the UK?

Sorry to bombard you with these questions
