Borderlands 2 Loot Chest and Signed Print Giveaway

Only 250 ever printed, sold out within hours, numbered and signed by six team members including David Eddings, voice of claptrap

It’s been a long time coming, but the doorway to Pandora has been opened once again and, with it, a chance to spend countless hours pouring over the contents of a loot chest comparing every minutiae to see if you can add another 0.1% accuracy or an additional 0.2% zoom.  We love it though.  Stat whores, I mean.  The only thing missing for the Borderlands weapons fanatic was the option to have a chest of their very own, sitting at the foot of their bed, filled with the complete works of Shakespeare, or maybe even some speciality magazines from Sweden.

Gearbox knew this, and so they worked with 2K to give us an incredible-looking piece of eye-candy… the Ultimate Loot Chest Edition.  The punters knew this too and, to the surprise of absolutely no-one, these loot chests sold out quicker than an episode of Blackadder Goes Forth can throw out a simile.  Yes, I know what we just did, don’t write in and complain.  We love you guys though, and we here at GLHQ love Borderlands… and we want to share the love.  To that end, we have a ridiculously-generous giveaway for you all, and a chance for you to win one of THREE prizes.

First Prize

  • The Ultimate Loot Chest special edition Borderlands 2 set on Xbox 360 (PAL… but who cares, right?)
  • Limited Edition Claptrap screen print released in September 2011, one of only 250 made, signed by six of the team including the voice of Claptrap
  • Borderlands 2 burgundy E3 t-shirt
  • Borderlands 2 Minion t-shirt
  • Claptrap model
  • Borderlands 2 Top Trumps cards

Second Prize

  • The Vault Hunter’s special edition set on Xbox 360 (again, it’s PAL but it’s all about the swag)
  • Borderlands 2 burgundy E3 t-shirt
  • Borderlands 2 Top Trumps cards

Third Prize

  • Borderlands 2 burgundy E3 t-shirt
  • Borderlands 2 Top Trumps cards

How Do I Enter?
Well, we don’t want to give this one away to just anyone… we want you to actually give a toss about what you may win because, let’s face it, this stuff is rare as hell and highly sought after.  This isn’t going to be a multiple choice question, nor are we going to pick someone at random on Twitter.  We need you to do TWO things to enter the contest…

  1. Email with the answer to this question:
    What was so special about Nine Toes?
  2. Follow @GamingLives on Twitter and tweet this phrase (which you can click to save you time typing):
    I WILL win the Borderlands 2 Ultimate Loot Chest and Claptrap print from @GamingLives or I’m crackin’ skulls!

The Rules
This contest is open to anyone over the age of 16, in any country worldwide.  Please note, however, that the actual GAME will be in PAL format so if you have an NTSC system then you may not be able to play it. Anyone who doesn’t follow @GamingLives, doesn’t tweet the phrase or doesn’t get the correct answer will not be eligible for the final draw – all three criteria must be met.  The contest will run until midnight GMT on Sunday 23rd September, at which point we won’t accept any more entries and the three winners will be selected at random on Monday morning and notified immediately.  We will also update this page with the details of the winners.  You may enter the contest as many times as you like, provided you tweet the phrase each time (don’t go crazy or people will unfollow you… nobody likes a spammer) but only ONE prize will be given per person so if you were selected as the first prize winner and again as the second prize winner, you will forfeit the second prize and it will go to the next person drawn.

And the winners are… *drum roll*
After thousands of entries and countless hours of sifting through the myriad of “he had nine toes!” answers (do you really think we’d make it that easy?), we finally got down to our pool of correct answers.  It’s been a fun comp, with some hilarious answers (no, he wasn’t the King of Sweden before Robbaz and I’m sure he doesn’t bake a mean scone!) but the final winners are…

Gary Jones from Wrexham, who wins the Ultimate Loot Chest, signed print and other stuff
James Lewis from Newport, who wins the Vault Hunter’s Edition, t-shirt and Top Trump cards
Justin Forsythe from Chillicothe IL wins the t-shirt and Top Trump cards
