Cost: $110.40 -- Not only is it EXACTLY the same as the box you won't have to wait until November for, it's also filled with LOVE, and I'm not sure you can put a price on that.
Cost: Free -- It may be a leap, but I'm going to assume that if you want the Call of Duty: MW2 Prestige Edition, you already have the Halo 3 cat helmet lying around. It works just as well!
Cost: $59.99 -- No need to wait forever, Jakks Pacific will sell you these next gen EyeClops goggles for $60. They'll be out this August and they really work!
Cost: $44.99 (Used) -- ...OK, well, it's not THE game, so much as it's Call of Duty 4 with another 2 written on it. But who can even tell the difference?
Cost: $0.10 -- Shh, don't tell, but it's not really steel. It's 10 cents of foil on a regular box!
Cost: $0.30 -- Print out some of your favorite screenshots, staple them together and BAM: art book.
Cost: $5 -- Go pick this up on eBay for $5 and try to forget the fact it won't play on your console.
Cost: Free -- You'd never know it, but this is actually a FedEx box that I've decorated to LOOK like the Modern Warfare 2 box. Don't worry if yours doesn't look this good.
This is all you'll need to get started, a stapler, some tape, some Wite-Out and some foil.
