World of Warcraft fans have been waiting for the new Cataclysm expansion, and we've gotten our hands on the giant Collector's Edition box set. Inside, you'll find a hardcover art book, a WoW mouse pad, a soundtrack CD, and even a deck of cards for a collectible trading card game.

We're not sure this surpasses the StarCraft II collector's edition box set we saw a few months ago, or even the recent Call of Duty: Black Ops Prestige Edition , but for an expansion pack for an existing game, it's pretty comprehensive.

Check out the details in our slideshow , as well as a peek at a few more collector's-edition video game box sets that might make great holiday gifts.
