Last year, the Legendary Edition of Halo 3 took advantage of the most diehard of the series' diehard fans by charging them $129 for a bundle that included the game and replica Spartan helmet packaging. Microsoft is pushing the upper limits of pricey premium packages a little further with this year's Xbox 360 sci-fi shooter sequel, Gears of War 2.

Amazon.com is now taking preorders for an exclusive Gears of War 2 bundle that includes the game and a lifesize replica of the series' iconic chainsaw-bayonet rifle, the Lancer. The package sells for $139.99 and comes with the regular edition of Epic Games' third-person shooter, although gamers can tack on an extra $10 to get the limited edition of the game instead.

Pulling the trigger of the replica Lancer will cause the gun to vibrate and emit a chainsaw-like noise (3 "C" batteries required). Other features include a removable clip and an adjustable side handle on the rifle. The prop gun was designed by NECA, the company behind the Gears of War action figure line, and created from the 3D model used in the game. The group also sells Gears-branded messenger bags, hats, and keychains.

ChampMLG - "Gears Pogs? What are you living in 1990?" I think the guy was being sarcastic...

In Gamestation - you can get the gold lancer with the game for an extra £30. Not bad! If you wanna get your hands on one but don't have the game or a pre-order, give a store a ring or something. Better than £129 or $139 when you can get the game there for £38 and get the gun aswell for a total £68 for game and gun. Sweet for fans imo. But I just got the ltd tin of the game. Thats enough for me lol

that would be sick if the gun was an actual air type BB gun.

@ ChampMLG are you serious, you know he was saying that what they're doing is ridiculous, like if they came out with gears of war pogs. waste of money.

dude if they wanted this to be a kick ass combo, they should change the launch day for any day before haloween, so people can use their lancers with a Marcus Fenix outfit.

i think they should give away the lancer to you if you buy GOW2.now that would make people more intrested in the gun idea

I couldnt believe how lame this was when I saw it. Do they also offer limited edition GOW 2 pogs and GOW 2 Gigapets? Geeze.

Hauhauahua the main problem is: you have the Lancer but can't cut people in half because it doesn't REALLY work =P

Amen, Sanguis. Insomniac definitely has the right idea, while Epic Games, and apparently Cliff B., does not. I rather have an artbook, behind the scenes documentaries, timeline explanations, sneak peaks at upcoming merchandise and other stuff for $20 bucks, alongside my game, rather than an $80, overpriced, light up toy. As cool as it may be to have a lifesize replica of the cool rifle, it's definitely not worth $80 bucks. That's a whole 'nother game, for cryin' out loud!

why do they pull this shi*, i would buy this if like it came with like 10 differant gears of war 2 t shirts, 5 gears of war 2 hats, two pairs of gears of war 2 pants, and a jacket with the gears of war 2 logo on the back. thats a plan cliff.

I checked out this Lancer and I come to find out that $139.99 is for the lancer itself. You would still have to buy the game (+$60), but they will upgrade you to the LE for free, if you buy them both... Rip off!!!

140 - 60 = 80 dollar, two-tone, fake plastic toy. Please I have played the game and seen what the lancer looks liike on the cover art. What Cliffy-B is holding looks hardly like the lancer that I have seen. Don't insult people and call a cheap plastic toy, a replica and charge 80 bucks for it. They should detail it out and take real blood from all the developers and put that on the chain and limit production to a ten- thousand units and charge about $800 bucks a pop. Now that's how you market and promote Gears 2.
