Gearbox's last Borderlands 2 loot chests were such a hit, they decided to make a new version to match the style (aka diamond plated) of the in-game chests in the sequel.
It's a collaboration with Think Geek, and they're only releasing 5,000 of them.
The chests will be stocked with new content, including redeemable in-game legendary weapons or items that will scale to your character's specific level. It also comes with a Goliath mask that you-your real, fleshy self-can wear, as well as a Shift code (found on the back of your mask) to redeem a customizable Goliath head for your in-game self. There's some art in there, too: wanted posters for each of the original vault hunters.
It'll be available in May for $99.99 on Think Geek's site, or ShopGearbox.com (for international folks, you can pick one up at forbiddenplanet.co.uk).
is the loot chest and actual loot chest now or is it still just a crappy box?
Was beyond pissed that i didnt pre-order the loot chest edition when the game came out and was completely relieved when i discovered it was just a box without the tacklebox like shelves the in game chests have.
They didn't show what the interior of the 'new' loot chest, but looks nearly identical on the outside. It just has the diamond plating that are on the chests now. So, barring it saying otherwise on thinkgeek, assume it's the same as the ultimate loot edition of the game.
The $100 they want for it is far to expensive for $50 dollars of merch in a super fancy package. 4 posters=$32, Two sheets of decals=$10, and a bunch of those legendary code cards which might be collectible, but don't really have value because of trading/duping. I neglected to factor the mask, which might very well be worth the rest of the cost if it's of good quality. Just can't justify the money for the mask, which is just going to be used as a paperweight.
