For the die-hards.
Only just recently announced, 'Borderlands: The Handsome Collection' is about seven weeks away, but that timing has done nothing to stem the popularity of the collection's over-the-top collector's edition. Limited to only 5,000 copies, the $399.99 'Borderlands: Then Handsome Collection: Claptrap-in-a-Box Edition' has sold out wherever it has surfaced (ahead of its March 24th date). The chief inclusion is a remote-controlled Claptrap. Claptrap can be controlled using an iOS or Android device, and the one wheel bot includes a camera for an eye which feeds to the app. There are also 12 lithographs and the game in a steel case, but clearly it's the remote Claptrap, with its ability to spout classic Claptrap phrases like "I'm dancing" that has captured the collectors' eyes and monies.
Observe the collectible in action over at 2K.
There's also a bizarre ad that shows even more of the little bot in action.
