We could leave this story right there couldn't we? A Helghast helmet. But it doesn't stop there — the awesome looking ornament opens out to reveal "an art book, super voucher and Killzone 3 game."
The super voucher — which can be redeemed via the PSN — includes a whole host of goodies of its own: a soundtrack, a dynamic theme, a Retro Map Pack of two Killzone 2 [em][/em] maps, and full weapon and ability access and double XP for the first 24 hours of multiplayer. If that wasn't enough, the "Helghast Edition" also includes a 6.5-inch "Cloaking Helghast" action figure.
The whole pack will set you back a whopping $130, but it looks absolutely worth it from where we're standing. This has only been announced for North America thus far, but we're hoping something similar makes its way over to Europe.
There's more information on Killzone.com and after the jump.
