I think I may get this....

2K Games and Gearbox Software today announced two tiers of special limited editions for Borderlands 2 – the Deluxe Vault Hunter’s Collector’s Edition and Ultimate Loot Chest Limited Edition.


Both editions will reward fans with a number of collectible and in-game bonus items that will enhance the action-packed experience of Borderlands 2.

The Deluxe Vault Hunter’s Collector’s Edition (£64.99 on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC) includes a copy of Borderlands 2; authentic Marcus Kincaid bobblehead; Inside the Vault: The Art & Design of Borderlands 2 hardbound book; collectable sticker set; map of Pandora; digital comic download code; and bonus downloadable in-game digital content.

The Ultimate Loot Chest Limited Edition (£99.99 on Xbox 360/PS3 or £74.99 on PC) includes all of those items, plus a collectable scaled replica of the red loot chests found throughout Pandora in Borderlands 2; steelbook case; Creatures of Pandora wide-format ID chart; lithograph postcard set; field notes from Sir Hammerlock; cloth map of Pandora; and a numbered certificate of authenticity.

Both of the special editions will be available for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Windows-based PC.

Gamers who pre-order the Deluxe Vault Hunter’s Collector’s Edition, Ultimate Loot Chest Limited Edition or the standard edition of Borderlands 2 from participating retailers will also gain access to the Borderlands 2 Premiere Club, allowing them to download the Gearbox Gun Pack, a Golden Key, the Vault Hunter’s Relic and an all-new fifth character class – the Mechromancer. The Gearbox Gun Pack is a collection of unique guns to help players begin their journey on Pandora.

The Golden Key is used to unlock a rare in-game item in the mysterious Golden Sanctuary Loot Chest found in Borderlands 2. The Vault Hunter’s Relic is an in-game item that boosts players’ gear-hunting fortune while playing solo or teaming up with friends. The Mechromancer character class will be available following launch when development of the character is complete and is free to those who pre-order Borderlands 2, and will be available for purchase for those who do not.

Same here! I already missed out on some other collectors edition so I'm pre-ordering this ASAP. I wonder if that chest is just a box or opens the two panels coming out the sides.

Better pic to guess-timate the size of chest/ bobblehead.

contemplating getting one of these, but i don't know really. the price seems good and the stuff you get is awesome, but i will regret getting it having all that stuff to store/display. i just recently got the skyrim collectors edition and the dragon is huge and i've nowhere to put it. i'm seriously considering chucking it but seems a shame really. i dont want to buy this, then end up in the same situation.

still. its deffo one of the best ive seen. i might just get the smaller one.:)

I already got the game ordered for $40, now I have to buy the ultimate for what I believe is $150? It's not up on amazon yet, but I imagine shortly. I'll totally be buying it, I just don't know how I'm going to pay it off.

Edit - Here's a link for Amazon: Amazon.com: Borderlands 2 Ultimate Loot Chest Limited Edition: Video Games

Looks like they rushed to put it up. I'd imagine it will be linked to the actual Borderland 2 page soon. I just ordered mine. $164 and change with tax. I hate tax. Use to be that I didn't have to pay it until a few years ago.

I've never bothered with any kind of 'ultimate' editions of games. The stuff they add is normally crap, and I just want to play the game. But seeing that loot chest, there is no doubt that I'm getting it.

Considering I've already got the regular edition paid off, another fifty bucks won't put that big a dent into things...

Seeing as you're from the states I can assume you don't use the pound, so it's actually another $90. I just want to be clear that you can get the CE for $100 with the bobble-head, the loot chest version is $150... unless you get some sort of discount?

Went and pre-ordered mine from GameStop yesterday. I was almost broken-hearted because the girl behind the counter said she couldn't find it in the system. Then she told me she was looking under PS3 for it. Does this mean PS3 isn't getting this edition of the game because the deluxe edition is in the system for PS3/360, but the loot chest is only showing up for 360?

Doubtful, it's more likely it's just not in there system yet. It was only announced a few days ago. Hell, Amazon's page doesn't have there usual flash "select edition" button up. You have to go to a separate page to order it, which I was only able to find via the message boards.

I checked GameStop's website yesterday and didn't see any sort of collector's edition on there. Today, both special editions for all 3 platforms(PC, 360, PS3) are all showing up.

I was about to call you an idiot, then I actually checked the picture to find that it is conveniently absent from the picture. I'm going to ask a rep right now if their chest version is different from other retailers. I'll let you know what they say.

The pic in question for those wondering: http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/91h7dSq5roL._AA1500_.jpg

I just chatted with a rep and this is the only reply of value imo: "David, May be there must be an error with the image, but no need to worry, you will get all the items." I'm not overflowing with confidence, but at least I have it on record I voiced my concerns and provided examples, so if and when I do get screwed hopefully I can get refunded or some sort of compensation.

Another poster on the message boards over at Amazon said this: "most of those pictures gearbox released said: may not represent final product. meaning it should come with the vending machine box, this may have been an earlier image." but didn't provide a source, so take from that what you will.

I'm going to cover a base here and pre-order, not purchase yet, the Deluxe Edition. I'm going to keep and eye on the main sites just in case the Loot Edition becomes available, but I want to be sure get one of the LEs.

Hopefully I'll get some good timing and nab the Loot one though!.

Why risk it? As you've said it's preordering not actually purchasing. Places like Amazon don't charge you till it ships and you can cancel at anytime. I'm sure a lot of people thought they would do this with ME3 CE and they were sold out before you knew it. It's your money so do what you want, but I don't see the harm in preordering if you really want one.

I'm not risking anything. You can pre-order at ShopTo and not pay until release or whenever you feel like it. So all I've done is put the Deluxe edition on my Pre-order list, so it shows ST that I want it and am guaranteed to get it come the games release.

If the Loot edition is then placed on the site, I'll cancel my pre-order at no charge and swap it out for the other. I can do this as much as I want for at no cost until release!

I did the same thing but ShopTo are taking way too long on this one and GAME now has it up and mentioned and linked above, so I went with game. I'm pretty sure ST will only knock about 10£ off of it, so it's no big lose.

If ST do stock it at some point and I can cancel my GAME order and get my money back, I'll be placing back with them. But for now I've ordered and paid for it and because I want it that bad and I dont want to miss out.

Sold out already... Wow. Hopefully they'll stock more due to the demand but glad I got in their fast and preordered mine!

It's a good LE so hopefully everyone who wants one gets it, but to be fair the Deluxe isn't that bad of s buy!

If the Deluxe edition had the Creatures of Pandora poster and the metal Vending machine I would of gotten that instead of the ultimate edition.

I'm fairly certain it's Crawmerax, there seems to be a smaller version of it right to the left as well so maybe that is what we went up against in BL1 and the poster simply implies that there is a far larger version out there, or a smaller one who knows. :P

Crawmerax had pincers, this thing doesn't :p. I hope it's not the final boss, because quite frankly it's not very creative and it looks like it will be a bitch too fight.

It did, but the creature in the image is from the side, it looks like it has almost identical features to Crawmerax, antennas, a long lobster like body, the large parts at the front look like pincers from the side, it's quite difficult to tell but it looks like pincers to me, the only thing that says otherwise is that it doesn't have any spikes or anything but that could be a trait that was unique to Crawmerax itself, it's a chart of the creatures of Pandora, we all know Crawmerax was as big, possibly bigger than a Rakk Hive and its' a creature of Pandora so it must be Crawmerax, you might also notice Mothrakk is there too so chances are the larger creature is Crawmerax, or at least of the same species

Also Crawmerax had legs under its tail and not two spiky legs like this creature has. It definitely isn't Crawmerax, but I agree it looks like a large craw worm hybrid. Also wasn't Crawmerax a mythical sea creature that came to land only because the sea's had dried up? How many mythical sea creatures can there be in Pandora.

Crawmerax kill using glitch. Easy method - YouTube

At around 2:18 Crawmerax will rise into the air, raising the pincers and you can clearly see two sets of large legs.

If you look at the image, you can clearly see the shape of the pincers and if you look at the smaller version you can even see where they connect to the body, the creature in the image is most definitely Crawmerax.

I personally don't think it's Crawmerax unless it's evolved in some way. Look at the THIS (http://www.gearboxity.com/images/web/BL2_LE_UltimateLootChest_Full.jpg) again, and compare him to the images I've put below. Though they do look similar, they have their differences.

The second image is quite a bit into the fight, it's missing it's legs and pincers, the first image if anything proves it's Crawmerax, you can see the legs, you can see the antenna and you can see the parts connecting the pincers to the body, there is no denying that it's Crawmerax, as I've previously stated that's the only creature we know that is as big as a Rakk Hive and of all the creatures on the image none come close to the size required and the fact it has all the right features, I guarantee if the poster tells you what each creature is, that one will be Crawmerax, or at least of the same species.

It's definitely a large craw worm, but it isn't Crawmerax. Crawmerax had it's pincers at the side of it's body, it looks like the creature in the picture has a singular large pincer coming off it's face. We'll all see when the game comes out, but I bet it won't be Crawmerax. And you are also aware Gearbox will be creating new creatures for Borderlands 2 right?

Look at the picture, the larger of the two, you can clearly see the claws at the front, the exact same design it repeated on the second set of limbs, looks like a second set of claws to me, the smaller one doesn't appear the have the same feature though.

Well the way you're talking it seems like you think that all the creatures from the first Borderlands must be on the poster for Borderlands 2, which isn't correct. It isn't Crawmerax, if you look closely you can see they have different features. If the poster says that it is Crawmerax, I owe you an apology, but until that day comes I'm sticking with common logic.

Well I did say at least twice previously that if it's not Crawmerax then it's of the same species, every creature from the first game will be on the poster, it's kind of in the name "Pandora Creature ID Chart" and I have looked closely, they have identical features, the only problem is you can only see it from the side in the image.

Not a ton, but at the same time I didn't sell them right when I preordered. I was worried they might get canceled so I waited to post the auctions till I knew for sure. That was a bad idea. I was planning on finally get a new, but cheap computer, and thanks to me being a worry wart, that never happened. It pretty much paid for my own personal copy but that's about it. If I sold them in advance and just shipped them out weeks later when I got them, I'd likely be on a new comp and not this one I've had since BF2 (PC). :/

Keep in mind this was an $80 CE with not all that much "swag" that was selling for $150 on eBay. This is $150, but I doubt many people will probably pay over the $200 mark, but I could see $250 being a real possibility. We'll see though, I got one copy of the game coming in for $40 and the chest edition at $164 with tax, If I can make $100 pure profit I may just sell it, but I really want that fucking chest.

I'm pretty pissed that I missed out on the Super Edition. I went into Gamestop 3 days after it was announced and they said it wasn't added to the computer yet. I go in 3 days later and they said both editions are completely sold out! I was finally able to nab the Vault Hunter's edition today at Best Buy. However, they still had the Ultimate versions for the PS3 and PC, but I can do without the chest..

Really pissed off GAME UK cancelled my pre order of the ultimate loot chest without telling me why, why advertise you have it all day friday and most the day saturday and allow people to pre-order if you havn't got it, I've sent this meassge to them through customer contact form
" Seriously are you kidding, you would have thought after being in trouble you would keep you customers informed on why there pre-order has been cancelled instead of canceling it without any reason being stated!

Now if the Borderlands 2 Ultimate Loot chest was out of stock, why not state that when you canceled the order and why cancel Halo 4 aswell. Now also if it is out of stock why the hell did you advertise it all day friday and most of saturday, this is a rediculous idea how hard would it be to enter a system to allocate a set number before being displayed out of stock.

Now the only other reason I can see this being cancelled is that at the moment I have not got the full funds in my account, but why do I need to stick a extra £170 into my account now and just have it sitting there not making interest when the release date is not till the 21st september. Either way I should have been informed as to why my order was cancelled and not just cancelled with no explanation, if this is how you conduct your buisness to all custom, espeacially a long standing customer like me then no wonder you company was in trouble not to long ago. Please contact me regarding this as I am not happy and you are likly going to lose my custom and will be ordering Halo 4 and Borderlands 2 else where "

That sucks but is uncalled for. This isn't the first time GAME have done something like this.

The thing is, I never use GAME or Play etc because of these issues and costs. I go straight onto ShopTo and get my stuff there first. One because it's a lot cheaper and two, because I get confirmation and a photo of my packaged product literally 5 minutes after I've placed my order.

If ST don't have it, onto Amazon. From there I work my way down the list! I simply don't trust other sites now other than the ST/Ama. Mainly because they charge way too much and screw you over.

Honestly, yeah I think it is. They seem to have really put an effort into offering physical collectable items when so many publishers are leaning towards downloadable filler, I'm looking at you Halo 4.

I think at $99 the deluxe set is definitely comparable, if not more value, than other sets at the same price point. Max Payne 3, Darksiders 2, Witcher 2 etc. In that it offers a mix of physical and digital items.

Where I think GB is making the ULCE worth it is by not just slapping everything into the loot chest and saying here ya go, which they probably could have done considering how much attention just the chest has garnered. Instead they added yet more physical collectable, and interesting, items. Like the steelbook, which some publishers throw out and call that in-and-of itself a special edition, the vanity items like the map/post cards and topping it off with some informative story based stuff like the creature chart and the field notes. On top of that making it an actual 'limited' edition complete with a numbered CoA, for me, makes it great value and probably the best collectors edition I have seen.

Well since I'm Dutch, it's all Dutch sites as well. There's a site I use called budgetgaming which lists all shops that sell a certain game and at which price. When searching for ''borderlands 2'' and clicking the Ultimate Loot Edition I got this;
http://www.budgetgaming.nl/game-profile/borderlands+2+ultimate+loot+chest+limited+edition_ Xbox360.html

So that's six sites who all appear to have it in stock for €130 (which is around 105 pounds) but hearing it's sold out everywhere in the US I'm starting to doubt there's actually 6 sites left who all have it.

And i was really glad i didn't proceed with it, that is, 5 minutes later searching the web for the company & reading numerous bad reviews about 'em! Gee, what a relief! LOL!

Though it would be really cool if somebody from Sweden would be kind enough to help out! :D


http://www.deepdiscount.com/index.cfm/fuseaction/search.results?Ntk=primary&Ntt=borderlands+2&N=0

Weird, I used to order from them quite a lot a few years ago, got great deals on Gameboy Advance games, and it even slipped through the Swedish customs a few times without taxes...

I never had any problems at all with them, decent shipping time and not too expensive, but that's just my experience.

Although I seriously doubt they'll get the ULCE's but it's worth a try?

From the BL2 FAQ:

What is the Loot Chest in the Ultimate Loot Chest Limited Edition made of? How big is it?
The Loot Chest is made of a high-quality hard plastic and at approximately 17.75 inches long by 7.25 inches wide and 6.5 inches tall (with the lid shut) is large enough to hold a dachshund (http://www.gearboxity.com/images/web/bl2_ulce_pancake.jpg) (click the link!).

Not sure if they're still accepting pre-orders for ULCE but yesterday I was able to snag one off play-asia site! Now, here's to hoping they'd not screw my pre-order from what i learnt gamestop did to their loyal buyers. Anyhow, mine's an online order unlike gamestop's fiasco they screwed a couple of their store customers in favor for their online customers... Still keeping my fingers x'd!

Heck! I couldn't care less if i get slapped by Customs exorbitant Duties/ taxes I must have that elusive ULCE! LOL! Another downside of ordering overseas is the long wait times about 5-10days from what i read on the web but I'm down with my last straw here so no better choice for me. :drunk though still cheaper than getting from ebay, I'd say...

2k put out a list of official sellers. I don't think that store was on it. Thus, your pre-order will more than likely get cancelled. I'll try and find the list again.

there's this such annotation saying, "This is a product with limited availability and our allocations have been presold. If you have preordered this item, your order has usually been confirmed. If you plan to purchase this item, please check back on the item's release date for possible restock".

I've posted recently to one of the ULCE-related threads here saying PS3 Asian version is still up for grabs. Lo & behold! It's still available @play-asia as I'm typing this now! Since you can still "add to cart" if you're trying to buy that said version!

I hoped that they would get more later on, since a relative is working in Australia and couldn't get one, but at least I'll get to make him jealous with mine...

I would still be cautiously optimistic. I've seen discussions about people's orders on sites not listed by 2k that were confirmed pre-orders only to have them recently cancelled once the companies found out that they definitely would not be getting any.

Also, Randy of 2k said that these ALL SOLD OUT with a couple days of being released for pre-orders. I just don't see this one website still having some left.

Not trying to shoot you down, I would just trust 2k and the official list of retailers they put out (seeing as how they are distributing the EXTREMELY limited number of these).

I've been closely monitoring this since June, so once play-asia opened their pre-orders 2-3 weeks ago even just the Xbox Asian version I grabbed the opportunity to snag my ULCE!

I'm fairly certain it's Crawmerax, there seems to be a smaller version of it right to the left as well so maybe that is what we went up against in BL1 and the poster simply implies that there is a far larger version out there, or a smaller one who knows. :P

Crawmerax had pincers, this thing doesn't :p. I hope it's not the final boss, because quite frankly it's not very creative and it looks like it will be a bitch too fight.

Because I remembered this dibate about whether this was Crawmerax or not, I think this achievement ends it here.

You'll get charged 2-7 days before release, depending on the popularity of the title. At the latest it'll be when they ship it. Quite suprised this is your first GAME online buy mate :P I've got both Borderlands ULCE and Darksiders waiting for my money.

GAME are crap that's why and past/present things prove it. Orders being cancelled, games turning up weeks late and being charged at a later date.

I use ShopTo. Cheaper games by at least £10, game is always on time and normally a day early plus you can pay whenever you like or leave it to charge you automatically on release.

I'm only using GAME now because no one else is stocking this LE. I've used ST for over a year now and have brought over 20 games from them and I've not had one issue plus I get bonus stuff like shirts for no extra cost. Whereas GAME have had a few bad track records and have also gone into administration, so... Yeah that's why it's my first and hopefully only! Used to buy in-store GAME or Amazon until ST came along.

Doesn't mean you can't get screwed over. Also, eBay is removing the auctions as they can't be listed before you are within 30 days of the release date (you can't list things that will take over 30 days to ship as you will be out of eBay buyer protection).

Seriously, the LE isn't worth that much. As much I want it, and got it for $400 cheaper, I would never pay that much for something. I mean, I have the money to do that, but that $400 could go on so much more and something better.

S'up, guys? Hey, chanman! :woop: Did your pre-order already ship? Mine just this morning! While I got a regular edition since its midnight launch just to get things started, so anxious to get my grubby hands on my ULCE!

Just a heads up for people that may have missed it. Fry's electronics has copies of the ULCE for the xbox 360 for sale right now on their site. I'm sure they won't last long!

Oh, and yes! They do have them even albeit they are not on the "official" list here on the forum. If you missed out and still need a 360 copy—hurry up and grab one before they're absolutely gone! :drunk

Toying with the idea, why not get another one for my glass display which i would leave unopened & in its pristine condition! Nah, I might just go & grab a care package instead! :woop:

Again, see y'all in Pandora!
