Borderlands Handsome Collection Collector's Edition

Included in the Collector’s Edition:

* Everything in the normal Handsome Collection.

* Remote-Controlled Claptrap steward robot.

A real-life robot that looks just like the in-game character! He is designed and detailed to look just like the Claptrap you know and love – or maybe hate – and now you have the power to control him! The Remote Controlled Claptrap operates on PCB Gyro technology to balance on his one wheel; is controlled via the Claptrap App, which you can download for either iOS or Android; You can control Claptrap with either “figure joystick” or the motion-sensing mode on the Claptrap App; A library of adorable and desperate phrases are included that the Claptrap can speak when activated on command; Claptrap has a real, working camera in his “eye” that allows you to view Claptrap’s live video stream on your mobile device!

* Collectable Steel Case Large Box Packaging.

* Steelbook case with exclusive artwork.

* 12 Exclusive Lithographs — Featuring all the Vault Hunters from The Handsome Collection, incuding those from both Borderlands 2 & Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel!

Here’s a trailer for the regular Handsome Collection.

The Claptrap steward robot is controlled through a smartphone app and can move in all directions while balancing on one wheel via it’s internal gyroscope.

The Claptrap can also say lines in character and live stream video to a mobile device (iOS/Android) through his eye; allowing you to see exactly what he sees!

Now THAT is a Collector’s Edition! *the mind wobbles*

That robot is too freakin’ cool, and I’m not even a fan of this series! Apparently the Borderlands: Handsome Collection – Claptrap-In-A-Box Collector’s Edition is already sold out… So good luck on getting your hands on this!

It’s crazy to think that a single game can cost as much as an Xbox One or PlayStation 4 these days when they release a Collector’s Edition….

Still this is definitely one that collector’s will want to keep their eyes on and add to their videogame collections!

I love Collector’s Editions! But I need more of them! ^_^
