Borderlands 2 Diamond Plate Loot Chest Discovered

Did you miss out on the Borderlands 2 Ultimate Loot Chest? A lot of fans did, but Gearbox has finally come through for them. Announced at PAX East, Gearbox has teamed with ThinkGeek for the Diamond Plate Loot Chest. The second Loot Chest is still red, but has "diamond" accents to set it apart. This doesn't include the game, since just about every Borderlands fan already has it, but it does include other swag. There is a wearable replica Goliath mask for you and your in-game characters, 20 cards that unlock in-game legendary items, a Vault Hunters wanted poster, window decals, and a certificate of authenticity. I know a lot of fans will be happy to finally get a real Loot Chest.

A second chance for LOOT!

The Diamond Plate Loot Chest is limited to 5000 pieces and will cost $99.99. This is a ThinkGeek exclusive, but will also be available on the Gearbox store. The ThinkGeek page for the Loot Chest says it's marked "out of stock," but I don't think it actually went up for pre-order yet. If it did go up for pre-order, then it sold out within minutes, but I wouldn't be worried yet. The Diamond Plate Loot Chest will be available in June. If you want one, keep an eye on ThinkGeek.
