Announced by Gearbox during PAX East, the Borderlands 2 Swag-filled Limited Edition Diamond Plate Loot Chest will be released this coming June exclusively through online retailer ThinkGeek.
If you missed out on the original Borderlands 2 Ultimate Loot Chest Limited Edition, this chunky swag-filled edition is a suitable replacement. Inside you’ll find:
- Diamond Plate Loot Chest
- Loot Chest Certificate of Authenticity
- A rare vacuform Goliath mask w/ SHiFT code that unlocks the head in-game
- 20 Trading cards with SHiFT codes that unlock Legendary items in game
- Vault Hunters Wanted Poster
- Window Decals for Hyperion, Jakobs, Maliwan, and more
Dimensions of Loot Chest: approx. 18″ long x 8″ deep x 6.25″ tall. Does not include a copy of Borderlands 2
According to ThinkGeek, included items could change before release so be sure to check in for updates.
The chest seems to be notably different with a slightly different colour scheme to distinguish it from the original chest. There is also no copy of Borderlands 2 included in this edition which the developers deliberately left out so existing fans would not need to buy two copies of the same game, although I’m sure some collector purists won’t be too pleased about. Extras such as the rare Goliath mask are a unique inclusion, not available in previous CE releases.
Although ThinkGeek list the Swag-filled Limited Edition Diamond Plate Loot Chest as an exclusive, retailer Forbidden Planet and Gearbox’s own online store is supposedly selling it through their channels as well. Limited to 5,000 units and priced at $99.99 USD, orders can be placed through ThinkGeek from June 6th, 2013 via http://www.thinkgeek.com/product/f497/
Unforunately they do not accept pre-orders so you’ll need to sign-up to email notification to ensure you don’t miss out.
What are your thoughts? Is this an edition worth adding to your collection?
