Oh, don't worry. It isn't quite close enough to Christmas for you to have to worry about spending too much cash.
If you're a big fan of ultimate premium collections that you can proudly display in your collection, you've got to consider one of the Borderlands 2 special editions that will be available when the game launches on September 18.
The first is the Deluxe Vault Hunter's Collector's Edition, which will go for $99.99 and feature a Marcus Kincaid bobblehead doll, a collectible sticker set, a map of in-game world Pandora, a voucher for a digital comic, extra in-game content, and a super sweet hardbound Inside the Vault: The Art & Design of Borderlands 2 book. That's a pretty hefty package right there, but wait…you could take the next step…
It's the Ultimate Loot Chest Edition, which will have a retail price tag of $149.99 and feature all the items in the Vault Hunter's Collector's Edition plus a scaled loot chest replica, a steelbook case for the game, and a Creatures of Pandora wide-format ID chart. You'll also nab field notes from Sir Hammerlock, a cloth map of Pandora (shades of Game Arts!), a lithograph postcard set, and even a certificate of authenticity. Now that's something to put in a collection!
Of course, this is all assuming you'll want to play Borderlands 2 when it drops in September. But you will, right? And if you pre-order either bundle, you'll gain access to the Borderlands 2 Premiere Club, which awards members a bunch of in-game content plus the recently announced new character, the Mechromancer. Good stuff!
