So the cute charm doesn't work?!

:eek:
Well I can't say I'm immune to kittens... :o

The way to wow me would definitely be a Triforce Lancer replica... which unfortunately is nearly 100x more expensive that a Batsu. :D

I'll remember to bust down a door to a burning building to save a litter of kittens while holding my Triforce Lancer.

Where can you find these figures online besides amazon?
I can't find them in any stores.

also, would the Jace figure be a good start to my collection?

Depends on where you live? If you live in the US--try Toys R US and if you live in the UK try E-bay or BigBadToyStore.

Good eye, good deal Apocalypze.

I posted my entire merchandise collection on the main subforum so I might as well post it here too:


I took some quick group pictures of all my stuff, eventually I'll get off my lazy arse and take detailed pictures of every thing separately. :p

Anyways, this is all my Gears related stuff:

Games:

- Dom and Maria photo (included in the Gears 2 Collector's Ed)

Action Figures:

- NECA messenger bag (which I take with me everywhere)

http://i215.photobucket.com/albums/cc288/threnodee/Gears%202%20photos/Merchandise%20and%20Goodies/IMG_0036.jpg
- Gears 2 raincoat (I don't think this is official :p)
- Bioworld Marcus t-shirt (which I am also guilty of wearing everywhere)
- Bioworld Gears beanie (reversible - the inside is grey with "Gears of War" in black lettering)

And that's all :) I don't think I've forgotten anything.

I'm constantly thinking of expanding, and the piece of merchandise which I'd kill for right now is a NECA Lancer replica...

Hope you like it. :p

Threnody can u DM me where or how you got the rain coat.
Haha, I'd like to help but unfortunately I got from a local charity event about a year ago where they sold old games and some merchandise, I saw the thing hanging there and nabbed it for 6$.

That's why I said I don't think it's official :p never seen it for sale anywhere on the internet. Must've been custom made by the people organizing the event or something...

Cliff's autograph is very lazy xD I don't think he means to make it look legible. Just a 'C'.

@IRGIORGIO: I usually see a couple Lancer replicas on eBay that sell from 100€ upwards, and that's the cheapest I've seen ever... but there's always loads of people bidding for them of course, not an easy auction to win.

shaydapaul
09-24-2010, 07:57 AM
you can pick up lancers for average price everynow and again just gota keep looking i bout one for 80 mint and another unboxed for 60 quid then painted it silver and black

Those are Lancer side handles, the ones the characters pull out when they want to use the chainsaw bayonet. They break or detach very easily...

IRGIORGIO

But I had to get 2 Anya posters to get Dom. Therefore I have 1 extra Anya poster. O well... I'll probably put it up on Ebay once it arrives. Doesn't matter though I'm just so stoked to have all 3! The only thing that could be better is if I got one of them signed!! lol... A dreamer can dream...

just ordered a palace guard from NECA through Amazon for $20(includes shipping)

I'm a bit worried because there feedback was at 95%
Main problems were shipping time, communication, and broken items.
Hopefully I don't get any problems.

Hi all Gears fans... i just received my Marcus Fenix Gold Lancer figure from another country (El Salvador) . i purchased at ebay . but there is a little problem... the seller had the greaaaaaaaaaat idea to fold the top plastic to save on box size and ship price. damnnn ... as a result : folded top and a little corner plastic broken at same place. My question is : the value of this figure will still high or now with this small damage on box the price is like the normal marcus (8$ lol ).... well... cya

http://www.joystiq.com/2008/10/09/gears-2-the-last-day-cog-tags-unlock-goodies/

Epic Hid some of them all over the world for people to find...Theres actually and entire thread on the forums titled "The Last Day". It was a viral ARG... Some people were given them as well, like employees of epic and what not. The only way to get them nowadays is on ebay. Im hoping they do something similar for Gears of War 3!!!

While im posting i mine as wel update everyone on my recent pickups..

Today i got my Limited Edition copy of Gears of War 2. Its in "Like New" condition and im extremely happy with my purchase.

Im having issues with the my series 1 locust drone and sniper action figures tho... I paid for them on April 2nd, and i havent heard from the seller since March 30th.. Ive gotten no responses to any of the 6 or 7 messages ive sent him since. Today i told him that if they didnt arrive, or if i didnt hear from him by midnight i would be forced to open a dispute for a full refund. Its sucks but oh well. The wierd thing is, he has over 300 transactions and 100% positive feedback :\.

Picked up another Locust Hive set (I'm big on the whole army building thing.), and some of the toysrus wave figures (which are downright hard to comeby in the UK BTW). Also pre-ordered series 6 and the Epic edition of Gears 3, along with ordering some new Gears 3 posters.

The person selling it named it very oddly. And yes i currently have two but im selling one back to my friend

Ill pay double :D

Also, wheres the cheapest, best place to pre order Series 6 of the action figures?

I bought a bookshelf last night, so now i finally have a place to displace my kickass gears collection :D.

Nice Pickups man!

Heres a link to what a last day cog is...

http://www.joystiq.com/2008/10/09/gears-2-the-last-day-cog-tags-unlock-goodies/

Epic Hid some of them all over the world for people to find...Theres actually and entire thread on the forums titled "The Last Day". It was a viral ARG... Some people were given them as well, like employees of epic and what not. The only way to get them nowadays is on ebay. Im hoping they do something similar for Gears of War 3!!!

While im posting i mine as wel update everyone on my recent pickups..

Today i got my Limited Edition copy of Gears of War 2. Its in "Like New" condition and im extremely happy with my purchase.

Im having issues with the my series 1 locust drone and sniper action figures tho... I paid for them on April 2nd, and i havent heard from the seller since March 30th.. Ive gotten no responses to any of the 6 or 7 messages ive sent him since. Today i told him that if they didnt arrive, or if i didnt hear from him by midnight i would be forced to open a dispute for a full refund. Its sucks but oh well. The wierd thing is, he has over 300 transactions and 100% positive feedback :\.

His Ebay username is "Lundylobe" and here is is page...

I too am just starting to collect the figures... Kinda off to a bad start tho. The seller i won Series 1 Locust Sniper and Drone is ignoring me.. Opened up a dispute with him today : \

For those trying to get into Gears figure collecting, I'd have a look at the various toy websites out there, along with Ebay (while it can be scandalous at times, you can stroll onto some real bargains). For actual shops, try your nearest comic/collectors store. Places like this usually stock Gears figures to some degree.

It also comes down to you. How do you want to collect? Are you a completist, because if you are, expect to pay some high prices for the older figures. Also, are you a MIP collector? If so, your life will become especially hard, to try and find that pristine packaging you want displayed. If you're an opener (like me), then stuff like packaging doesn't really come into the equation.

So I opened the Series 2 Box Set. Marcus' arm broke off, which I'm not mad about because I already have a Gears 1 Marcus Fenix figure. However, my Lt. Kim figure broke an arm too, inside the package. :( I guess I'll have to buy the TRU Lt. Kim cause it won't look good if I fix it. These figures are so fragile, I get worried whenever I try to pose them cause my strength might rip them apart because they are so hard to move.

Just got a "Headshot" locust drone figure off ebay however when I opened the package one of the blood and brain splatter pieces was broken off, kinda disapointing but I just super glued it back on. Also does the "headshot" drone's right arm have any articulation at all? Doesn't feel like it and I don't want to snap it off.

Also just got a hoffman figure and micro fiber crimson omen blanket from BigBadToyStore. On a sidenote they have very nice packaging. I also pre-ordered the random 24 pack of Heroflix characters.

Patiently waiting for my Epic Marcus Fenix bust from Triforce probably sometime late June. I need to buy or have a display case built for all my gears stuff lol, everything i look for is soo expensive tho. Anybody know of any good nice cheap display cases?

Hey I've just recently started collecting gears figs and I know I'm late on starter but I'm hoping to get as many as I can, not I don't really care if I can't get ahold of any of the earlier figs as I prefer the new Marcus, Dom and Baird figures that are to be released in series 5 and the gears of war 3 figs.

Now the only figs i have are lambent grenadier and jace Stratton, my question is what figure/s should I get next?

Why say something like that? There is a possibility that the eBay seller is false however it has been shipped has a tracking number and the seller has pictures in the listing taken 15 may which show the back and front of the packages. ( not previously release). I have no way of knowing for sure tilthey arrive ( usually takes about 2 weeks). But I have no reason to doubt the seller.

Guys, the figures are made in China/Asia, so it makes sense that they are available there first, as everywhere else requires an actual boat/plane to get them to each country. I checked out the Auction, and it seems legit enough, like I said, it's because they're literally coming direct from the factory.

The helmets (Sentinel has the helmet). Even the guard isn't technically correct, as it too should have a helmet (although it is different from the Sentinel helm)
