It's true, I'm a sucker for collectors and limited edition copies of games. The character figurines or replica guns are cool little things to have and don't cost that much more to get. With that being said, the Borderlands 2 Collectors Editions should just be the standard for that game. Hands down, this game has one of my favorite Collectors Editions of all time and there is no way that I am not going to be getting this.
There are two versions: The Deluxe Vault Hunter's Collector's Edition and the Ultimate Loot Chest Limited Edition. The Deluxe Vault Hunter will cost $99.99 and comes with he game; a Marcus Kincaid bobblehead; Inside the Vault: The Art & Design of Borderlands 2 hardbound book; a sticker set; map of Pandora; digital comic download code; and extra downloadable in-game digital content.
For just a mere $50 more, bringing the total to $149.99, you can purchase the Ultimate Loot Chest Limited Edition. This edition comes with all the items listed above plus: a collectable scaled replica of the red loot chests found throughout Pandora in Borderlands 2; steel book 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.
If you don't care about either of those things (in which case, we won't be friends anymore) those who pre-order the game, including the mega boring standard edition, will also be admitted to the game's Premiere Club. The club lets gamers download the Gearbox Gun Pack, a Golden Key, the Vault Hunter's Relic and the Mechromancer character class.
The Gearbox Gun Pack gives players a collection of unique guns, 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 the players gear hunting fortune (while playing solo or with a team), and the Mechromancer character class is free to those who pre-order and won't be for those who don't.
Borderlands 2 will be available on September 18th in North America and on September 21st internationally.
