    Did you miss out on the Ultimate Loot Chest last year? Here's your chance at another one!

    Gearbox are releasing another Loot Chest at a limited production run of 5,000 (the previous Ultimate Loot Chest was limited to 53,160 copies across all platforms). So the Diamond Plate Loot Chest will be even harder to get.

    This is not a second production run of the original chest. This is a cosmetically different chest (compare with the original) with different contents:
    The game will not be included with this loot chest and will retail for $99.99. It will be available exclusively through ThinkGeek and Gearbox.

    People really pay $100 for posters and stickers? Cards with guns available in the game?

    Pokemon action figures, trading card game, etc.

    Hey, I bet if this was all Mass Effect/N7 gear like hoodies and junk people wouldn't complain. :P

    Yeah, without the game it's a bit silly. Some neat collectibles but not $100 neat.

    Oh yeah, I'm totally going to get one of these... Not. It's basically a hundred bucks for a few SHiFT codes in a cool box. Might as well go the whole hog and start selling them on the PSN Store since, y'know, microtransactions are apparently the new thing in retail games.

    This is an affront to real loot everywhere.

    For shame, Gearbox. For shame.

    The stupid thing about releasing toys this long after the game release is that you're damned if you do include the game (the ones interested already have it) and damned if you don't ("omg, 100 bucks for basically plastic!!??!").

    Morale: don't sell this stuff long after the game release.

    A third option would be to sell it long after the game release, without the game, for $50.

    How much did the first chest cost? It sells for $250 on eBay now.

    The first chest retailed for $150 but it included the game in a steelbook case.

    How would they be damned if they do include the game? It'd be more of an incentive to buy it then.

    If the game was included I'd buy it in a heartbeat. But 100$ for it without? Seems a bit like a cheap cash in
