Vault hunters of Pandora, 2K Games and Gearbox Software have a special treat for you. If you’re willing to pony up a fat wad of cash, of course.

Shoot-and-loot role-playing FPS, Borderlands 2, will be available in not one, but two uber-extravagant special edition kits: the Deluxe Vault Hunter’s Collector’s Edition and the Ultimate Loot Chest Limited Edition.

$100 will get you the Deluxe Vault Hunter’s Collector’s Edition containing a Marcus Kincaid bobblehead, a hardbound art book, a pack of four collectible stickers, a poster map of Pandora, a digital comic book voucher, and bonus downloadable content.

Up another tier of collectible awesomeness, the $150 Ultimate Loot Chest Limited Edition includes all content from the Vault Hunter’s edition plus a replica red loot chest, a steel book case, a Creatures of Pandora ID chart, a set of four lithograph postcards, a journal of field notes from Sir Hammerlock, a cloth map of Pandora, and a certificate of authenticity.

Whichever edition you decide to go for (including the lowly standard edition), pre-ordering now gets you a membership to the Borderlands 2 Premiere Club. Premiere Club benefits take the form of bonus DLC, including access to a package of Gearbox Golden Guns, a Golden Key to unlock a rare item from the Sanctuary Loot Chest, a Vault Hunter’s Relic that boosts “gear-hunting fortune,” and the new Mechromancer class when she becomes available following the game’s launch. Premiere Club pre-orders are available at Amazon, Best Buy and GameStop.
