    SDCC11 Gears of War 3

    The war maybe over, but the battle has just begun...














    San Diego Comic-Con coverage brought to you by Tonner, Collectibles Insurance, and Big Bad Toy Store.


    Come September, Epic Games rolls out the eagerily awaited final chapter to their Gears of War video game trilogy. Gears of War 3 takes our heroes down a dark road to face old Locust foes and a new explosive threat (quite literally), the Lambent. To reflect these dire times, Marcus Fenix and the crew sport a cool new rugged look and bring with them an arsenal of "new" weapons, including the bayonetted Retro Lancer and Double-Barrel Shotgun.


    Like their work on Gears of War 2, NECA is taking on this new title head on with an assortment of all-new 7-inch scale actiuon figures. Aside from just looking like they just stepped out of the game, these awesome collectibles feature the most articulation NECA has crammed into a toy: over 30 points of well-concealed, well-engineered articulation. Each figure will also come armed with great Gears gun and will feature one point on their back for mounting the weapon for when not in use.

    Here is the confirmed lineup for the first two assortments:

    * GEARS OF WAR 3 SERIES 1 - September, 2011

    - Marcus Fenix (with Retro Lancer)
    - Calyton Carmine (with New Lancer)
    - Damon Baird (with Retro Lancer and removeable tools!)

    * GEARS OF WAR 3 SERIES 2 - Fall, 2011

    - Dominic "Dom" Santiago (with Double-Barrel Shotgun)
    - Anya Stroud (with New Lancer, 1 out of 20 will be an exclusive "Deadly Pink" Lancer color scheme!)
    - Augustus "Cole Train" Cole (with One Shot!)

    * TRU EXCLUSIVE MARCUS VS LOCUST GRUNT 2-PACK

    - Includes new GOW3 Marcus Fenix action figure and a Grunt with all-new head sculpt. The exciting thing about this set is that it packs cool new "flame" deco on the weapons! Marcus will include both a New Lancer and a Flaming Retro Lancer, while the Grunt will pack a regular Hammerburts and a Flaming Hammerburst!

    * TRU EXCLUSIVE "BROTHERS TO THE END" CARMINE FAMILY 3-PACK

    - NECA had just finalized this exclusive with Toys"R"Us during my studio tour (see our story HERE), but I was sworn to secrecy! This exciting set includes all three Carmine brothers - Anthony, Benjamine (with new fully articulated body!) and Clayton - together forever. The set will also include a slew of weapons.

    * GAMESTOP EXCLUSIVE "JOURNEY'S END" MARCUS FENIX

    - This version of Marcus features an all-new upper body sculpt depicting the hero without his body armor. You can read all about it HERE.

    * 1:1 SCALE BUTCHER CLEAVER

    - This impressive piece of cutlery is due out this fall. Look for a soft role play version priced at around $30 and full-on metal replica later in the year for about $100.


    And that's just the tip of the Gears of War 3 iceberg! NECA has way more figures planned for 2012, including the wicked cool Savage Theron!

    Re: SDCC11 Gears of War 3

    The new gears of war figures look great ! outstanding quality and articulation, although I am wondering how they will handle this line. Are they going to re-do all the figures that were in Gears 2 if they are in Gears 3? If so, will they be any different? I mean, that Locust Drone looks exactly the same as the Gears 2 version and I hated the torso's on those figure. I am also disappointed to see the first 2 series are just cog figures. Do you also know if the toys R us box sets will be released alongside the series? I am very interested in the Carmine 3-pack, obviously.

    Kinda bummed that the first couple series only contain the humans; I've always preferred the Locust figures. But sounds like a good lineup thus far. I'll be a happy man if I can get my hands on those exclusive packs.

    And a re-released Anthony Carmine figure? Good thing I already sold my old SDCC one on ebay for insane amounts of money.
