A working Claptrap will be available with a limited edition of Borderlands: The Handsome Collection. Gearbox President Randy Pitchford stated it's "an unholy mix of science and magic."

A video was attached to Pitchford's announcement. It showed some footage of the real-life Claptrap.

It doesn't have the same mobility as its in-game counterpart: Its hands remain stationary throughout the demo. But it sounds authentic--frequently spewing lines from the game.

Claptrap is the lovable robot from Borderlands. He is the franchise's comedic engine. He often overestimates his courage and strength.

Stairs are his biggest weakness, as he can't move up them. And Knuckledragger, a giant bullymong, rips his eye out at the beginning of Borderlands 2. He is more or less in constant need of rescue.

The Handsome Collection will come with Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel and Borderlands 2. Both of which will be remastered for the current-gen consoles. Both games will feature add-ons that you can read on the PlayStation Blog.

"But what about the DLC?" Gearbox stated. "Well, that's all included, too. Yup, The Handsome Collection includes ALL of the add-on content for both Borderlands 2 and The Pre-Sequel, which is a heck of a lot of stuff."

Borderlands: The Handsome Collection launches for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on March 27. For more about Borderlands, visit its official website here.
