Epic Games apparently feels like their current Special Edition
offerings are not quite enough to satisfy the biggest Gears fanatics amongst us.
Today, the developer of the upcoming Gears of War 3
revealed that Retro Lancer Replicas will also be bundled with copies of Gears 3
, though at an additional cost.
Here are a couple of details about the Retro Lancer:
Created from the actual 3D data used by Epic Games in the Gears of War 3 video game
Over 3 1/2 Feet in Length
Trigger Activates Machine Gun Sound Effect
Hand Painted with weathered and battle worn detail
The Retro Lancer, crafted by NECA, will also be available independently of the game.
As of right now, you can only pre-order your chosen version of Gears of War 3
with the Retro Lancer from Gamestop. The Standard Edition will run you $140, the Limited Edition will cost $160, and the Epic Edition will set you back more than a new 4GB Xbox 360 Slim will with a cost of $230. The Lancer may also be purchased separately for $100.
There is no word yet as to whether these bundles will be available at other retailers or in other regions.Gears of War 3
is scheduled for release worldwide on September 20th, 2011
