needs to be half this price
Ha the pink would be epic as a converted paintball gun
This is actually really cheap for a replica. The cheapest on ebay is £65 atm. Hot.

I guess you could re-paint. It would of course de-value it, but it would'nt look so girly.
How can it be life-size if it's from a game ? It would be about 2-3 inches if it was life size

Actually, with a proper paint job you could get £100 plus for this when you sell it.
the deadly pink weapon set in the actual game is the most popular weapon skin set
If it came with the gorgeous girly in the picture - I would have bought 2 of them !

Seriously though, there must be someone out there who wants them ?

The gold sold like hotcakes but the other three after that, well, haven't.
Exact same as the Portal ones, the original sold out like nobody's business but the others seem to be dragging.

I think what it seems to be is the folk who want them are the nutter collectors like me who'll pay £70 (or £100 for Portal, either of which is nothing compared to the Triforce ones right enough) for a plastic toy gun just because 'ZOMG, just like it was in the game!'
Now, the way I figure it, we snagged the gold/original ones, (or c*nt scalpers did but that's a different story), and then Neca decide to release more because of these sales, yet we already have it and so a large slice of the market is already gone, assuming most are happy with one.
The remaining bits I imagine are people who missed the first but don't want to buy any if it isn't that, then there's folk that would buy another but then they got greedy and released three more variations and so you can't decide which to get since they released them at another 70-quid a pop which would be way too much to buy them all and so more folk just don't buy any.
This effectively leaves their market as folk that don't care if it's not original, folk that can buy all three or those that do want just one more colour.

Sure, this is all me guessing and there's obviously more reasons such as the thing is f-ing massive and many people might struggle to find a place for one never mind four for example but most of the reasoning is based on what I or other collectors I've seen comment generally think of stuff like these or the co-op Portal guns.


Of course, I could easily be over-thinking this in a big way and folk just don't want a bloody pink Lancer...
