$400 Borderlands – Claptrap in a Box Edition Announced

The Borderlands Handsom Collection was announced today; a re-release of Borderlands 2 and Borderlands the Pre-Sequel for PS4 and Xbox One arriving March 24th this year.
The standard edition will include both games and all DLC on a single disc,  at a cost of a full price game ($60 in the US). Supposedly you’ll also be able to import your saves from your last-gen console. Also announced is a $400 special edition called the “Claptrap in a Box”.

Borderland The Hansom Collection Claptrap in a Box

Released world-wide and Limited to 5000 units across all consoles and all regions this edition will cost $400 and include a SteelBook, 12 exclusive lithographs featuring all of the vault hunters from the two games as well as a very cool remote-controlled claptrap.

The included claptrap uses an internal gyroscope to maintain balance, it’s controlled by an app available for iPhone or Android, features a camera mounted in it’s eye so you can see what it sees, and is able to spout several phrases, also controlled from the app. You can see it in action yourself below:

UPDATE: Pre-Orders are now open in the US through Amazon.com
Playstation 4 | Xbox One

    $400 for 5000 Units???

    These companies are charging insane prices... The Splinter Cell Blacklist with the Remote Aircraft doesnt even cost that much...

    Nvm... rant over.

    Nor did any of the Black Ops collectors editions, and those came with more then just an RC and lithographs

    Awesome! I just waited for that!

    the CE: Claptrap is pretty cool, but 400 box? Must think about it^^

  4. Twistedsymphony:
    Anyone know who is taking pre-orders yet?

    Gamestop.com in the US has the standard edition up, but no one else seems to have anything yet.

    dont think it is good value maybe if the steel is exclusive to edition possibly but at the moment no

    Exactly my opinion. $400 ... that is just too much for a CE of HD remakes. I won't support companies with such insane prices.

    But the steel is really nice though. Hopefully there will be one 'steelbook-only' edition.

  10. Twistedsymphony:
    I've yet to find a Canadian retailer that's willing to ship to the US... despite the fact that I'm close enough to the border that it's just a 3 hour drive to the nearest futureshop.

    Looks like Amazon Canada is already sold out anyway.... I'd suspect they received a very small allotment.

  11. Alaniata:
    Any news on WHO Will sell this in EU? Anywhere there ship to Denmark?

  12. Twisted:
    if we support this..more developers will demand $400 upwards for a single game collectors edition.

    Yeah I agree - its a bit much indeed.

    For those interested, Amazon has them listed but not available yet (don't think they sold out yet, as I've been watching them periodically)

    PS4

    I'm having a hard enough time justifying the $400 to buy one for myself.

  18. eternix:
    Oh NO. The is no way i would get this. It should come with more for $400 dollars. I'm still waiting to see what all is in the Halo CE to decide if I really want that!

    I just ordered the PS4 version, it shows as unavailable but you can click the "1 new" and order it
