With the release of Red Dead Redemption 2, lets spin back the clock to 2010 and showcase a cool Employee launch kit that was given to managers of GameStop. (link here)
The pin box comes with a poster of John Marston, a set of Lanyard Badges, a Launch Kit Info Booklet, and a Red Dead Redemption Polo Shirt.
I can say, I have never seen these before and was surprised to find one. I guess the seller was waiting all this time for the release of Red Dead Redemption 2 or maybe he does not work for GameStop anymore, 😉
All jokes aside, this is a pretty neat collector’s item that seems to be in fairly good condition. We all recall how hard Rockstar was promoting the game with GameStop for launch.
Here is the GameStop commercial from 2010
RDP 2 seems to be getting great reviews and I am curious to see if it holds it ground against the original.
Here is a closer look at the Red Dead Redemption Launch Kit: (link to item)
This is a very rare Launch Kit for Red Dead Redemption. This kit is very cool and very rare! These were sent to managers of GameStop near the launch of Red Read Redemption. The kit is a pin box with “READ DEAD REDEMPTION EMPLOYEE LAUNCH KIT” burned into the front/top of it. Inside are some really neat items. First there is a twine satchel (which is messy 😀 ), a Wanted Poster for John Marston, a set of Lanyard Badges, a Launch Kit Info Booklet, and lastly a Red Red Redemption Polo Shirt (large I believe).
All box items seem in fairly good condition and this can make for a great collectible item for all fans of Rockstar Games.
