Happy Halloweeeeeeeeeeeen!!!!! Thanks to all you creepy crawlers who decided to tune into VGA today on this special day 😈 😈 ….To be honest with you, I didn’t have time to setup a themed Halloween post, but I know Akira’s got something neat coming up so stay tuned for that. Anyhow, in my quest for trying to find “something” to honor this day, I found this beautiful item:
It’s a Gears of War 1:1 Scale Replica of the Lancer that you might be familiar with. But for those who aren’t, you’re probably saying,”Isn’t this already all over eBay?”, ummm….thats the Neca version. Remember seeing the Locust Drone Maquette all over the net? The same guys who made the maquette made this lancer. This gun has all the features from the game, and is almost 100% accurate to the lancer in the game(the picky gamer will always pick out differences). It’s also only limited to 500!
Now you might be discouraged from the price, but believe me, it’s well worth it is you are a die-hard GOW fan! Can you get it cheaper? Not even on Triforces website. But, a wise man once told me, “You need to spoil yourself sometimes“, and you know what? He’s right 😉
This is the description from Triforce’s website pertaining to this beaut:
“TriForce proudly presents the officially licensed Gears of War 2 Lancer Assault Rifle, intricately sculpted by Erick Sosa, art director of TriForce, and paint-mastered by highly respected industry veteran, Paul Komoda. The end result is the most authentic trademark weapon of the COG military brought to life! The Lancer Assault Rifle is hand-finished and hand-painted to precision quality. Intricately crafted and cast in polystone, it stands a massive 40” in length and weighs in at 15 pounds! Own this authentic piece of videogame history as part of a Limited Edition of 500 pieces worldwide.“
I have to agree, this is an incredible piece compared to it’s Neca counterpart. This version even lights up! The Neca version is made all of plastic, can break easily for example the “scope” area, and almost all lancers are defected in regards to the “noise” they are suppose to make when the trigger is pulled(I won’t get into that). Also, when you lift up this Triforce version, it “feels” like a real lancer due to it’s weight, while Neca has practically a weightless model. Even comparing the “look” of each model, the Triforce version is way superior and resembles the lancer from the game almost entirely. It’s dark, it’s dirty, and has a nice silver touch to it. Sure the Neca version has “blood” on it, but that can’t be the sole factor of product quality. You get what you pay for folks, so just thought I’d give my review and compare the two.
