You could always try to work something out with triforce involving colored tansparent tape/wrap applied to the gun, and then you could peel it off once it got there. Just a suggestion, i would contact triforce if i was you and then contact customs about wether not something bright that could be peeled off the gun is legal. There is a f***ing chainsaw on the gun anyways so they should realize its obviously fake but who knows

I contacted TriForce and the reply I got was lame, no help at all. They make great replicas but terrible customer service:
Ben,

We have had issues shipping to the UK, sorry to say we can't accommodate you at this time.

The gun replica laws in the Uk are very strict.

Best Drew

I wouldn't risk it. Chances are that they'll pick that package out due to its weight & size to x-ray. Soon as they see that it has the shape of a rifle, they'll red flag it & confiscate it. Then you're out hundred of dollars. Is that worth losing all of that coin? Hell no!

I have contacted customs. I've been thrown between so many people I was starting to get dizzy. First of all I was told I'd need a deactivation certificate from the Birmingham/London proof house. I called them and they said, "we only issue deactivation Certificates for items that are or were fire arms. We cant issue you one for a plastic toy gun". Call customs and you should have no problem.

Once again I call customs, I'm told that because it looks real I'm going to have to hold a licence in order to keep it. After lots of talking I was transferred to commodities to get them to categorise the gun to determine if I can get it into the UK and also if I need a license (WTF). I got my code and quoted back to them at customs. I was told; "ok your going to have to pay a large customs fee when it arrives. But providing that there is a formal letter with the package addressed to customs describing what it is with all the nessasery details. I should have no problem getting it into the country.

So I found a shop that is selling a new factory sealed TriForce lancer and asked them about getting it shipped here. Their response:
yes, we have shipped these Lancers to the UK a few times and ALL blaster replicas include our letters, describing what the piece is. We have never had a problem shipping any blaster replica to any collectors in the UK, over the past 8+ years. Yes we can mark the item fully insured when we ship, as per your request.


True. Either way theres a risk but contacting triforce could so some good. They might have a solution to the issue or may be able to contact customs or something
They also might suck, Slayac... The look after US customers but when it comes to international I don't think they care. :-/


So after all that, I've put down a $100 deposit on a sealed TriForce COG Lancer. Hopefully today I will be able to move my money and pay the rest of and get it shipped! Yippie! :-). It was a lot of work, but it sure will be worth it!

Well i'm glad it worked out for you. The snub may be challenging for you though. Triforce should just ship x amount to a big name shop in the uk and then you'd be able to buy from them.

The snub looks like it could actually be a real gun

Ouch!!! That's rough!!! Have you tried contacting Neca for a replacement Cole Train statue? I know only 100 were made, but if you sent that one back to them and explain it was damaged in the shipping process, maybe they migh make another for you? Maybe not since it was a limited production, but it's worth a try. Sorry for your misfortune tho.

Dont know how much unlucky you can get then that, I'd contact the places where u got the statue from or even Neca to see if there's anything that can be done, did u know there was no pistol with the cole figure before u bought it? If you got it online I'd contact the place an see if there's anything that can be done about that aswell.

That stinks man. I havent even opened my Thrashball Statue, so it could be damaged and i would have no clue lol.

I would definately get in touch with neca and email them those exact pictures. I dont think it broke during the shipping process.. That one was just made poorly.

As far as the Cole Figure, did you check the bottom by his feet? sometimes the weapons fall out and get stuck down around their legs. If it just doesnt have a pistol, than that sucks, but it kinda cool at the same time. I mean how many SEALED Augustus Cole Figures do you think were mispackaged like this? I mean from a collectors view, i think thats kinda cool. Any mispackages/misprints are always unique pieces to a collection.

Hopefully you get everything sorted out and your luck changes for the better.

Statues do NOT lose their value if you open it. They are treated very differently than carded action figures. As long as the packaging for the statue remains in good condition, opening the statue & displaying it doesn't matter. :)

Not when it applies to statues. I've been collecting for over twenty-five years & statues are the only exception. If you were to sell the statue, the person purchasing it would have to open it in order to see if it's damaged. Regardless if you kept it sealed or not, you don't know the actual condition of the statue unless you actually inspect it yourself. Therefore, keeping it sealed doesn't make sense. For the buyer, it could be a sack of marbles or a brick in the box. They're not going to take your word that it's been sealed for the entire time. If you don't believe me, just ask around on any collectibles forum. :)

No a lot of people will not have that come Sept. 20th. That is a Last Day COG Tag not a Octus Service Medal which a lot of people will have come Sept. 20th. Not many people have the Last Day COG Tag so it is in-fact valuable to true Gears of War fans, and the Octus Service medal won't decrease it's value. Besides mostly only true Gears of War fans own these and don't intend on selling them on ebay. These are much much more rare than a golden lancer or hammerburst code.

With that being said, I chuckled when I saw the listing price of that item as well..

While that is very true. I could really care less about the difference between the two. It looks exactly the same minus the drilled hole for the ball chain & dog tag. I take it that you have one of those Last Day COGs. ;) Having one of those Last Day COG tags does not make anyone a "true" Gears fan. There were many scalpers that hunted them down during the Gears 2 viral marketing campaign. :mad:

08-17-2011, 11:48 PM
Trust me, the 2 COGs are a lot different. They arent going to be the same exact size. And they dont have the same Engravings. Plus the mere history of the LAST DAY COG is what makes them so valuable.

But that guy either messed up, or hes insane. Because even the last day cogs arent worth as much as an escalade...

Let's just say there used to be 2 certain stores in my local mall. A few months back, one of the them closed. However, the company in charge of the manufacturing these promo items sent it to the closed location. So, the certain store that was still open was given 2 of these. I have a friend who works at one of these certain stores, and he hooked me up!

No, that seller got an early copy somehow, possibly via Hong Kong or China. That's why he's selling it for such a ridiculous price. MSRP on the actual legit offering will be around $20-25 when it actually hits Toys R Us. Also, that is most likely not the final packaging, take notice that it's missing all NECA packaging artwork. Don't patronize scalpers like this joker. Doing so only helps to further the black market for our hobby. :mad:

A youtuber toys210 has a review for the 2 pack. He's in california I think and he usually is able to get figures at TRU a few days before I see them at my TRU in TX. Usually my area TRU stock up on Wednesday. so I'm gonna check then. :) I'm guessing that California gets them first (maybe cause they're shipped from China?) and they ship from the western us to eastern. Of course... That's just my guess why , it may have nothing to do with what I just said. But I'm expecting them very very soon!

Picked up the TRU 2 Pack Marcus and Locust grunt. The Marcus is pretty small compared to the grunt and even the older series' of Marcus. Kinda lame. Though I do like the new locust.

I picked this up and had not noticed the Marcus, but tis the case. Next to Locust he looks great cause they are really beefy, but he is way shorter than older humans, including Carmine figures.

Solution: pose em next to Locusts I guess


Pretty sure just the head on the Locust is new

At my TRU in Texas the set is $29.99 and comes with 4 weapons, including retro lancer

Do your guys' Marcus' have the arm issue?
No Toys210 got a bad 1 so while I was picking up my 2 pack I checked ALL of them for the best paint apps. and made sure the arm looked ok. I think what happened to his is that paint covered the joint and when it dried it sort of "glued" it together. IDK just a guess.

PS if you plan on keeping them in BOX check out the packaging. ALL of the boxes were damaged as in cracked open at one of the TRUs I went to.

To those questioning the new Marcus' height, don't complain!!!
Canonically, the Locust are taller than humans, but this was never passed over into the figures due to costs of increasing Locust scales. This however has now been fixed. Since all the Cog characters will require new molds for the Gears 3 armour, they can essentially start again and downscale the cog slightly so that they remain true to the game, while not increasing their costs on the production end. There would have been no point in altering the scale in the past waves for Gears 1/2 figures, as it had already been established, and a few characters used the same molds i.e. Marcus, Hoffman, Jace, but now it's a new game, stuff can be entirely new, as it hasn't been pre-established yet, just like how McFarlane altered their scale for the Halo Reach figures as it was a new game.
Can't wait to get my Marcus. Play.com say the 16th. Wish I could get my hands on that new Drone though, not bothered about the rest of the set.

im beginning to think that first one is a scam.. I sent the seller a message asking for the SCID number on the back. He responds "new infomation has been added to the description"

So i go and check it out. and all it says is that he cant get more pictures, and that is says coalition of gears on it. He didnt say the CSID. So i think he just has a set of those cheapys from FYE and hes trying to pass it as a last day cog.

them separately on ebay

Anyways, heres a picture of mine. All of the packaging for the ones at my TRU were fine. Minimal to no damage. It was the figures i took a close look at. Some of the figures paint was a little bad. Like one of the marcus' had just black spots for eyes. Others had random black on his face... I picked out the best one :D

So I got a broken item from an eBay seller. What should I do?

Sorry to hear that bro.. what was the item, if you dont mind me asking.

As far as what to do, the first thing is to contact the seller, and let him know that the item you received was damaged. Take pictures if possible. If you cant work something out with the seller, like getting a refund, or him sending out a new item, thats when your open up a case with ebay.

Ive opened up a few disputes before, so if you need more in depth help, send me a PM and ill be more than happy to help you out

Picked myself up another display from gamestop today. Here it is!

http://i89.photobucket.com/albums/k211/Coorsy/SAM_0283.jpg

About 3ft tall, and its got the whole 3d aspect to it. I love it. Im actually really surprised i got this. At the midnight release, the only kid in front of me asked "hey what are you guys doing with your displays" they said they will keep em up till monday before they deck the place out with batman. Then, sneaky me asked " you guys keeping the countdown clock display for yourself?" he said no, and that i could have it. When the kid infront of me saw him give it to me he was kinda upset and complained a little bit. Thats when the gamestop employee told him he could have this big standee. But if he wanted it, he would have to wait till everyone got their game. Well it looks like the kid didnt want to wait, and i went back there today and the guy at gamestop already had it in the back with my name on it :P.

Pumped i made good friends with the manager down there. Im gonna continue to go throughout the week to get as many of their posters/stands as i can :P. Depending on what i get, ill probably even do a few giveaways!

consider yourself VERY VERY VERY VERY VERY (you get the point) Lucky.. Someone must have bailed on there pre order, because from what i heard, gamestops only received what they had in pre orders, not any extra.

Im gonna hit up a few gamestops around me to see if they have any like that.

Yeah I know I called 10 gamestops. They said that they try "working" with people who preordered them. Idk. Check by Friday quite a few gamestops said that I should call back then but I wasn't willing to wait that long.

I remember talking to my manager buddy down there a couple weeks before launch. We were talking about what they do as far as holding pre orders. He said in most cases, with a normal game, if they dont pick it up within a week they will sell the item and refund the person whatever they put down on it. But he told me things are a little different when it comes to limited items such as the retro lancer. He said they can hold them for up to a month. Dont know why exactly they do that but im hoping i can get another one.

Worse comes to worse ill wait till they manufacture more of them. Because i know for a fact NECA will.

I bought a full sized gold lancer on ebay, it should be with me in a few days. I got it for 45 without the box.

I wish i could find one of those at a good price over here in the states :/. I cant even afford the regular replica lol.

But i do have the retro! and when the Gold one makes its way over here ill get one of those too :D

That thing is SICK bro. My bestbuy had one and i actually asked to have it. But i havent gotten a chance to go there. I figured an employee snagged it up or something.

Those are some nice ones!

I still havent gone out on my promo hunt yet. I should probably stop procrastinating before i miss out on all of it. I mainly want a few of those boxes like you have in those photos. I know my local gamestop had a whole bunch. They didnt have anyone else asking about the stuff so i just assume he will give em all to me. Hopefully they didnt throw it all away yet.

If i do get multiple of those boxes, do expect some giveaways :D

Yesterday, October 2nd, was the day every gamestop was scheduled to take down their GoW Promo posters/displays and such. Not sure if you're aware, but there's a book they keep on the counter that tells you when that stuff has to be changed out. So if I were you I'd go hunting today before it's all gone.

Im gonna go there right when i wake up! Thanks for the heads up.

Are you sure all gamestops have this book? the only thing i see is a binder with all the "upcoming titles

I'm not sure "all" gamestops have the book. But it's a book from their corporate HQ, they showed it to me. It lists when they are scheduled to put up the promo items and when they are scheduled to take them down. It has preview images of the stuff they'll be getting for display.
