I think the headline says it all, but I’ll just reiterate that statement one more time. NECA is working on a Pendulum Wars replica Lancer. So sweet.While speaking with NECA’s Director of Product Development Randy Falk at Toy Fair 2011, I had to ask if there was any chance we’d be seeing another full-size replica Lancer from Gears of War 3. Since the game is going to feature retro-styled Pendulum Wars-era weaponry, I was dying to know if I’d be able to get my hands on one. Fortunately for all of us, NECA is indeed working on one. In fact, they’ve already built it. Here’s what Randy had to say:
“There is one built already. We have not tooled it yet, but we are in the process of tooling it to manufacture… The method of release, whether it be a retail item or exclusive like the previous Lancer, is still to be determined.”
Now I don’t know about you, but I think this is great news. I love my replica Lancer from the Gears of War 2 Amazon Special Edition, and proudly display it in my living room. Getting an old school Lancer to stand beside it will only add to the geek atmosphere in my house. And as a double-bonus, I’ll now have two Lancers on hand whenever my significant other and I need to settle a fight over the remote.
Stay tuned for more coverage from Toy Fair 2011 in the coming days.
