Brutal Gamer writes: If you're willing to spend the equivalent of $130 for a special edition of a game then you're clearly off your t*ts to put it blunt, but being able to own your own lancer? That is quite a tempting offer.
The only real reason I could see for buying this would be to stick the lancer on the wall in your gaming cave/hole. Who else is betting it'll be rubbish quality?
sounds just like the helmet from Halo 3 lengendary, hope it not plastic
What do you expect metal. Wtf are you retarded ofcourse it is plastic.
tiny .. and.. plastic in our future. If Assassin's Creed LE was any indication.
Do you honestly think they will make it out of metal? It'll most likely just be another cheap piece of plastic made in china.
Well the one Cliff is holding looks metal so i thought id would be the same i can only dream...
lol @ Metal comment. Bubbles for making me smile.
Hey that sounds pretty cool...I would like one but even more if it had laser tag features.
if it is the right quality, so it does not feel, really cheap, then i will get it
That would be a brilliant idea! Someone has to mod the lancer and put the laser tag equipment into it. :p
What is this Lancer? Be nice with your reply.
Its basically a machine gun with a chainsaw attached to the bottom. :)
You know it actually is tempting. I didnt get the Bioshock limited edition, as I have never bought a limited edition and the little statue thing that my associate got was pretty darn cool. If this was of that quality I would want it.... but still thats $70 for a plastic gun.....
Luckily I'm already married so I don't have to worry about scaring off the ladies. -Death
A chainsaw on a gun?Sweet! I've always wanted to be a psychotic gardener
Plus dont expect it to be life size either. Collectors editions are stupid anyway. I love how these companies hustle folks with that crap they include in those overpriced packages.
all over again
Yeah true, just hopefully this will be decent quality.
Hopefully its not like the Assassins Creed Altair figure. I saw it as the same size of the game box on a Gamstop advertisement and it turned out it was the size of my thumb...
$130 dollars for a miniature toy lancer? That's crazy. I'll pass. I just want to play the game.
Yeah it is a lot...I saw one on Ebay for $980 though so compared to that this is a bargain! :P
and if you want...you can STILL BUY that "limited" Halo 3 Legendary Edition you were meaning to buy September 25, 2007 before supplies ran out..lol Gears of War 2 will rock btw...I'm just making fun of still being able to find these "OMG Limited AND Expensive!" Editions of games BRAND NEW at retailers...
Yeah seriously. If they truely wanted to make something limited. Make 100 and call it a day.
Wal-Mart had so many of the Legendary left that they began to sell it at the price for the regular version. I would just frequent the Best Buy website...sometimes they price stuff wrong....and if you preorder it at a lower price........they have to honor it.
thats very tempting considering the fact that ive wanted a lancer ever since i played gears 1
I have learned my lesson with the "limited quantities" that the legendary version of Halo 3.
I think the Halo3 Spartan Helmet is pretty nice. Worst 'collectors edition' i own is probably the oblivion one - free coin! I would love a collecters edition of GTA5 with a scaled down model replica of a ferrari.........
GTA V?! Red Ferrari?! Do you know something we don't? DO TELL, DO TELL! :)
I was being really sarcastic - go into any model shop and you can buy scale replicas of any car! Half of my postings are tongue in cheek - hook,line and sinker though!
these collector's editions are just getting silly. i mean i just like a good old special cover (perhaps made of metal or cardboard) with a making of dvd. perhaps some mini artbook or a soundtrack cd thrown in. gears 2 - uhhh a lancer halo 3 - uhhh a helmet assassin's creed - uhhh a freaking ugly altair figure metal gear solid 4 - uhhhh a freaking ugly snake figure gta4 - damn i really need a deposit box and a duffel bag honestly these things are just getting ridiculous.
What is with MS and rediculously expensive editions. Halo 3, Fallout 3, and now this? WTF, who spends money on this?
looks joke but i doubt i'll get it.
...no link to an actual source. Sounds like bullsh*t to me.
The article has a source now. Sorry for any inconvenience.
You can actually get replica of a Lancer that he is holding...for about $900. So either it's a plastic Lancer, or it could be something different...hopefully something of better quality.
130 for the game and the gun? its still expensive but its way cooler than the gta4/halo 3 ones......for halo you got a mini helmit and for gta4 you got a bag.
Totally agree with you there, the GTA4 one was jut pointless.
yeah its not going to be made of the best quality or they wouldnt sell it with the game for 130
I'll only get one if its real and it comes with the GeOW suit.
I have heard that it comes with a real life Marcus...complete with his mighty Machoness!
Awesome, I hope the Marcus doesn't RROD
I'm getting one cuz guns r sweet.
i learned my lesson after halo 3 legendary... NEVER BUY A MS Limited Edition UNLESS IT's ONLY 10 BUCKS MORE, AND EVEN THEN IT IS QUESTIONABLE... LIKE HALO AND GEARS ONLY.
I'm done with special editions. Ever since I wasted an extra 20 on mgs4's LE bundle which turned out to be a cd with 1 or 2 good songs (that I could download in the first place anyway) and a boring ass documentary on how the game was created. No more LE's for me thanks.
For a lancer that's plastic or anything else I'd buy it, but is it the actual size or not.
First companies put toys in cereal boxes or Happy Meals too attract kids to they're brand, now you have stuff like this? Sorry but I wouldn't pay $130 for that, it's cheesy and another way for M$ too make money off of you. Sounds like the only gears that are turning in M$ head is how many different ways to milk this brand until Halo Wars comes out.
I wanna see what this thing looks like before I take the plunge... but I'll probably switch my reserve over to this edition as long as it doesn't look like complete crap. I'm a sucker for these super duper steal-all-your-money editions. There's no way I'm going to afford all these games that come out in November though. Damn you game industry for so many nice titles! lol
Thats probably one of the best special edition game packs ive ever heard of. cooler than gta4's lockbox and duffel bag. although a lancer isnt as useful it is way cooler.
which game you like better? Halo or gears you FRUIT? do you buff master chiefs helmet? you do? everynight?! now you want a gears rifle to go along with it? that's kinda sweet. good boy. Don't forget to pledge your vows. Your the best xbutt ever!!!... Buy now! Kidds?...
That's great and all... ...but why do that when you can get this? http://cgi.ebay.com/Evil-De...
Any suggestions? Personally I think it would look great mounted on some pieced together and welded sheet metal above the fireplace.
suckers buy. They will make a killing. People will buy anything. A Taiwan made $1.5 plastic toy resold for 75$ bucks. And people cry about gas prices /sigh
