Gears 5 is launching this September, and it looks like a lot of fun, especially when it comes to the "Escape Mode." However, if you're into acquiring collectibles, the following news should entice you. There is a lifesize Gears 5 "Lancer" weapon replica launching in September from the masters at PDP. It looks absolutely amazing and I just preorder one myself. Then again, a lot of writers at Windows Central are obsessed with the franchise!
If you want to own the Lancer replica, you'll have to spend $150. Unfortunately, it doesn't come with the game, but there are nifty in-game skins that are part of the package.
Destroy your enemies
It even lights up
Taking down the Swarm and Locust Horde requires a powerful weapon, and when you pull out the Crimson Lancer MK3 from your inventory, the enemy will flee in terror. This new lifesize replica weapon is more than a fancy mantelpiece.
