What do Hello Kitty and alien wastelands have in common? A one-of-a-kind collectible from the creators of Borderlands!
David Eddings, who fans of the video game Borderlands may recognize as the voice of Claptrap, recently revealed this special edition Loot Chest created during the manufacturing of the Borderlands 2 Ultimate Loot Chest sets.
“This was a gift that I received when I was in Dongguan, China having the original loot chests made for the Borderlands 2 Collectors Edition.” Eddings told the Rooster Teeth team during the show. “And when I was over there, this manufacturer happens to be an official Sanrio manufacturer and licensee and they do Hello Kitty.”
During the trip, Eddings joked about how he would “love to see a Hello Kitty Loot Chest.” And the rest is history.
“…as I was leaving, they presented me with an official Hello Kitty Loot Chest.”
The chest is modeled after the loot chests that were being made for Borderlands 2 at the time, with many of the same hinges and bolts. However, instead of looking beaten and worn down by the wasteland, the chest is bright pink and decorated with Hello Kitty characters.
“It has official Hello Kitty plastic and stickers.” Eddings told the RT crew. “It’s the only one.”
So what does one do with the only Sanrio x Gearbox/2K Games crossover ever made? And how does a collector have a chance of seeing this item for themselves?
The great news is that this Hello Kitty x Borderlands Loot Chest will be up for grabs at Rooster Teeth’s 2018 Extra Life event.
Extra Life is a charity event that supports Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. Rooster Teeth holds their own fundraiser for Extra Life every year on their website and YouTube channel, featuring a live stream and interactive moments with the community who donate to win exclusive prizes.
The Hello Kitty Loot Chest will be one of the many prizes on Rooster Teeth’s Extra Life 2018 lineup and will be up for auction during the event. One lucky bidder will win the chest, earning infinite bragging rights and donating money to a really good cause.
So Hello Kitty fans, start pinching those pennies now! I have no doubt the bidding war is going to be intense!
