Gears of War 3 Fans Can Now Score Their Very Own Retro Lancer!

Gamers that played the Gears of War 3 beta know full well the destructive power of the new retro lancer, which sports a bloody bayonet in place of the current model’s chainsaw attachment, and some lethal stopping power in close spaces.  Some beta testers felt it to be a cheap weapon, and I’ll agree with them only on the bayonet charge animation (basically become unstoppable while charging with the bayonet), but it’s still a gnarly tool of gut ripping destruction.  Due to its recent popularity though, the retro will be getting its own to scale toy replica just like the chainsaw based lancer did a few years back.

Through a partnership with NECA Toys, Gamestop, and Epic Games; Gears of War fans can now pre-order the retro lancer toy gun as part of the bundled packages that have already been offered for purchase.  The gun itself is available for $99.99, but you can bundle it in with the Regular, Limited and Epic editions of Gears of War 3 for a $20 discount.

What do you think?  Is it worth the buy, or is it just another scam to make more money?  Let us know your opinions by using the comment section below.  You’ve been tempted to spend nearly $250 dollars on a f*cking videogame…
