I believe Australian Steam had the SR3 franchise pack (so ~all the DLCs?) for $9 once ^_^
I paid $50 for the game plus the season pack & funtime pack as preorder bonuses, and then various further monies for DLC

I don't think things that violate the Steam subscriber agreement (like re-selling Steam gifts) are a very good thing to promote here. Fortunately we also have insightful comments like yours and not just advertisements for RU gift buying like the posts before.
P.S.: I'd still consider it quite possible that the Russian Steam gift version will end up having some extra restriction applied on launch, it's happened before - like a limitation to being playable in Russian only or to only run from RU/CIS IPs. The Russian retail version will only run from Russian/CIS IPs.
I believe the 'Locked' one is a test version used internally ("ReleaseStateOverride" for both 16582 and 16583), and the real retail (with preorder bonuses?) will be 16376
