by zombeast buyer beware...
his was available for in store pre order for Feb. 27, i pre-ordered it and it is the same short barrel tip, and it has the same sound as previous version's. as for the image it is an in game image not the actual gun itself. the actual gun doesn't have the #13 on it, instead it has the checkered stripe all the way til the end. if u have one of the old ones dont bother with this one unless you are a collector. image should be changed so is not to fool anyone else. i felt cheated, but i cant blame GameStop i blame NECA.
Rated 5 out of 10 by soylentgreenispeople Looks Great, Doesn't Work, Disappointing
I pre-orded this item several days before it came out, and was very excited about it. It arrived a month after it was supposed to be released. It came in a plain box with no instructions or other materials. I think it might be a previous return from someone else. The chainsaw doesn't move. In early descriptions of the item I thought it might. It is HUGE and looks pretty cool, except for the hokey taxi cab design, but I figured I'm okay with the taxi cab design over paying a thousand for one of the older releases with the more normal looking designs. It is heavy and seems pretty sturdy. The plastic for the sights are very beat up, but I think that is supposed to be part of the well-used intentional appearance of it. I put in some brand new batteries and pulled the trigger. It made a noise for about half a second and quit. I removed and replaced the batteries several times, but nothing. Darn thing doesn't work. So if I'm going to leave it on a shelf and never take it down to pull the trigger it is fine, but I kind of wanted to enjoy it a bit before the display, and I was hoping to have the sound for some cosplay. I am greatly disappointed after having waited so long that it doesn't even work.
Rated 8 out of 10 by YoungDjango187 Good weight, and looks great....
When I first opened my package I thought, this styrofoam is cheap and messy. It was ALL over everything. When I finally go it out.... I laughed and said, "I can't believe I just paid $100 for this". Then to make things worse my sound effect didn't work. I looked at it for the next few day in the corner, and it started to grow on me. The next day I took it to my best friends house so he could check it out. While messing with it he hit it on the wall. What do you know the sound effect started working! It was super wack. Sounds like a big vibrator enclosed in plastic. The paint is well done, it's going to look nice on my theater room wall! If you love Gears and you have the right room to put it in (game or theater room) I'd say pick one up....

Just like the MK2 Lancer Assault Rifle that came out for G.o.W 2 the Car. 13 MK2 Lancer is the same just painted, but beautifully painted. With my new Car. 13 MK2 Lancer the only noticeable problem is something rattling on the inside (sounds like a big screw or a coin of some sort). All in all if you own are seen the Gears 2 Lancer, you are getting that but nicely painted, the mag is removable, the fore grip hand hole is not very large, movable charging handle. If you love Gears and want a great toy/wall hanger the Car. 13 MK2 Lancer Assault Rifle is great next to a Portal gun and Assassin Creed Wrist Blades.

I hope that NECA has learned something from their first lancer replicas and managed to imrpove these. If it looks anything like the pic, I would not care about the annoying chainsaw sound. I also hope that this one does not suffer from the obnoxious battery casing issues.
Rated 10 out of 10 by jesuscross Perfect.
Worth every penny. I've had this pre-ordered from day one and have been waiting since February. It's everything it says it is in the description. Only thing that could be better is if the fore grip was a bit bigger. Something awesome to hang on your wall or put in a man cave somewhere.
Rated 0 out of 10 by progamer117 Awesome!
This would be my second Lancer from the Gears universe (first was the Gold Retro Lancer)! I can't wait for it to be at my doorstep! When I'm unboxing Gears of War: Judgment (hope there is a edition :P), THIS will be a part of my video!
Rated 8 out of 10 by Guil Really cool and detailed.
I really loved it, and I still do but the handle that would rev up the chainsaw broke off today :( it was kind of loose and kept shaking around and it fell off! the handle is the only thing to worry about, I only got this 2 days ago too..
Rated 0 out of 10 by Bskull Pretty good product.
I have had this lancer for a couple of days now. It's really nothing more than the same original lancer replica, but the clip issue and the battery problem is resolved.
