New Borderlands Avatar Items Join Discounted DLCs 1-3 On XBL Marketplace

In addition to Borderlands' first three DLC add-on packs getting the discount treatment this week, until October 25th (as noted in our XBL round-up yesterday) Gearbox has tweeted about a couple of new avatar items that have been added to the Xbox Live Avatar Marketplace.
So who cares, right? Well when one of them is our very own Claptrap for 320 MS Points, we do actually. Also available for 240 Points is one of the many weapon-filled treasure chests you'll have found scattered throughout Borderlands' Pandora, which we assume has a little animation where it opens and presents your Avatar with a giant rocket launcher or something.
Borderlands also hit Games on Demand on Monday, which is likely the explanation for all this Pandora-related loveliness coming to the Xbox Live Marketplace. The Zombie Island of Dr. Ned, Mad Moxxi's Underdome and Secret Armory of General Knoxx are all 400 Microsoft Points until Monday, October 25th.
