    Why in the world do they keep teasing us?!? Make the gnasher already and be done with it i mean i can understand the lancer being first but why the snub then the hammerburst? Gnasher is right next to the Lancer in terms of what gears is known for right? Id pay a grand for a remake gnasher but im not shelling out that much for a hammerburst....

    They said they would never make a gnasher or longshot because they resemble real world guns too much:/ its a bummer, but it makes sense. They already had alot of problems with the snub pistol and it doesnt even look like a real gun :P

    I think in the long run they can make more cash if they lower the price and that way be able to sell to more fans rather than the few who have the cash today and not tomorrow.
    I'll check in every now and again but for the most part, I won't be as active as I was previously. It really was the Gears + people that got me posting on here in the first place. Unless Epic release an awesome game or something. I'm leaving this message because I'm obviously a very, very important person.

    Hope to see a lot of you on the BT Forums! - 11/02/2014 (lol)

    I'm no where near poor, but when I put what that money can pay for in perspective i.e. monthly food/bills etc, helping stop famine in third world countries, that's a shocking price. I definately don't condone such high prices, when in perspective, I could buy NECA's Lancer, a retro Lancer a snub pistol and all three Retro Lancer variants for the same price. I just don't get where tri-force get off asking so much. The Epic edition just proves they can make excellent product for lower prices which is what they should aim for to appeal to all fans.

    That would be a very nice weapon to have, although Tri-Force would ruin it for me. Not only would they ask a rediculous amount, it wouldn't feature any moving parts which sucks IMO. The gorgon (and hammerburst) have a really cool magazine loading mechanism that'll just get ignored. I still think NECA's Lancer trumps Tri-force's because of this. You get way more for your money with them.

    there expensive for a reason there collectors pieces yes they could be cheaper but thats what makes them " collectable " the lancer was $1000 they all sold out the drone was $500 they all sold out the marcus bust and the snub will soon be sold out too there obviously is a market for them or they wouldnt sell out, i have a snub pistol and a neca lancer and yeh the neca one was cheap but its plastic and sounds awfull it along with my other bits sits on a shelf why would you want it too do anything else?

    Alot of people are loosing the sight of what triforce are doing they are replica collectables with no intention of there products being used as "toys" you guys really need to get close up to there products before you slate them and see what your paying for the locust drone,marcus busts and snub pistol are true replicas down to every detail.

    You need to stop asuming we don't know what we're talking about. I've seen and had a Tri-Force Lancer and felt dissapointed. To me a prop replica should replicate the actual item perfectly (within reason, so I don't expect a gun to shoot bullets/lasers, and a lightsaber to work), but it should come with all the other functionality, which the NECA one does have. The Tri-force ones are just essentially 3-D pictures to hang on your wall. There's no value in 'playing' with them. Maybe it's because I make props for a degree/job, but I expect the item to be as believable and workable as possible, so that when on camera or whatnot, the fact it isn't real doesn't spring to mind. With the tri-force stuff, I feel this is the case. It's great to have LED functionality, but without reload effects with removable pieces, they just don't feel worth it to me, especially when the price is rather high. With this, because of the lack of functionality, they aren't "true replicas down to every detail" because they have details missing!
    I don't get your point about the 'collectable' thing though. Anything is collectable, yet not everyone asks so much for their stuff. Just in using the word doesn't justify asking so much for them.
    I can understand that some here like tri-force, but to me they feel like rip off merchants and to some extent, a kick to the crotch to the fans. I've always believed in making stuff accessible, but asking so much for stuff is insane when it barely has any features and is literally a 3-D hanging picture especially in a world economy as it currently is, and when you look at the bad in the world. While I totally understand people want to enjoy your cash, I could never pay that much again for a toy gun that does nothing, while there's so much more good £900 can do in the world.

    Agreed^ cSPARTAN117c made a really good point, the lancer and locust drone bust did sell, but it took a matter of years to do so! I mean the locust bust came out when 2008? 2009ish? If they lowered the prices for their stuff they could to a larger variety of fans.the prices they ask is basically robbery, and i do own every piece the made except for the lancer. I feel the same way, i think necas lancer is a much better deal.

    Triorce is very high quality and specializes in replicating weapons. They use higher end materials and invest a lot more time in their creations, unlike neca who mass produces everything. As far as the moving parts go, Customs would flip out if there was moving parts. The snub was detained in customs for 2 months without moving parts and it doesnt doesnt even look real. There are limitations to how far you can go when customs is on your ass already. To each their own of course, but there are reasons for triforces limitations

    Surprised there isn't a variant again with this one, either blue or red lights like the Snub. It seems a lot of COG/MP COG players favour the Hammerburst, so it'd make sense to have had it.

    MP players use the hammerburst as well as the retro lancer as there extreamly over powered my thoughts were this when the lancer came out that it was blue only and not red.

    maybe the tourqe bow they will do will be a variant

    They're doing a torquebow? If it doesn't have moving parts, it's gonna be lame.

    Yayyy another triforce product. Maybe, just maybe if i pick up 2 more jobs this summer, ill be able to afford one.

    But on a serious note, why a Hammerburst and not a Gnasher? Its bad enough they cost an arm and a leg, at least maximize your profit and release the most popular gun in the series...

    the Tourqe bow hasnt been anounced yet or even mentioned in production but the sense i got from TF when i asked about a boomer was if anything is next it would be something like a "bow and arrow"

    as for the shot guns they replicate to close to authentic guns and create huge complications with customs and sale laws the snub that just got released would of been out months ago but spent 2 months of its life in customs after manufacturing from china to usa mine is now stuck in Uk customs for the same reason.

    UK rules are terrible. Just look at how we had to get the gold guns instead of normal colours because some bystander might thing a retro charge might actually do something. Hate this country sometimes...
    As for the Torque Bow, that'd be nice, but like already said, no moving parts would suck. The moving blade bits are what makes the gun pretty damn cool imo. I guess if they were to do one, I guess I'd want it in a ready to fire/not used position when the blades are down, but then again, you'd then lose the menacing appearance of it. This sucks.

    Would go for a Hammer of Dawn replica though.

    Dude the digger launcher was so sick. A Hammer of Dawn replica would be the tits. I'd probably buy one, and display it with my gears 3 epic edition medal and certificate and stuff, to make it seem like an Adam Fenix shrine. HELL TO THE YES.

    Not gonna lie, when presented the option of buying the Hammerburst for 850 or getting a train in the bottom, I'd probably go with the hammerburst.
