Think you're a hardcore Gears fan for preordering the $US149.99 Epic Edition of Gears of War 3? Drop an extra $US80 on the Retro Lancer bundle and then we'll talk.
GameStop weaponises all three versions of Gears of War 3 with the addition of bundles featuring a full-sized replica of the Retro Lancer, crafted expertly by NECA.
Back before the Coalition of Ordered Governments starting mounting chainsaws on the front of their Lancers, they tried something a bit more subdued. Poking the enemy with a sharp blade, while effective, wasn't nearly as dramatic as they liked, so after a brief period of simply mounting another Lancer on the front of the Lancer, they decided to go with chainsaws.
The NECA replica Retro Lancer is a massive three and a half feet long, created based on 3D models ripped from the heart of Gears of War 3 and hand-painted with battle worn details and blood.
Picking up Gears of War 3 will tack on $US79.99 to each of the three versions when purchased as a bundle through GameStop, or you can purchase the standalone version for $US99.99, in case you need extras.
