Gears of War Gold Lancer - Was £120, now £20 in Gamestation!!!!

34
Found 23rd Mar 2009Made hot 27th Mar 2009
I saw this a couple of weeks back and thought I would enquire about it, and it was released to coincide with the GoW2 release... but was pulled back due to Gun Laws in the UK permitting that something that looks similar to a real life gun not being legal.

So, they produced 5,000 of these babys! And a lot of them are gone, HOWEVER some do remain, and at £20 for something of this Limited Quantity, as well as it being a top notch piece of Memorabilia, the deal is worth it.

Oh, and did I mention that these things are still going for upwards of £60 on eBay? And that they are ONLY AVAILABLE IN THE UK!??!

Yup, the Lancer in Gold is a Gamestation exclusive, ONLY in the UK and Limited to 5,000. Down £100 to £20. Picked mine up today in Bolton, and Im impressed with it.

They just havent been shifting, and that means a cut price. But you need to enquire in your area, not just your local shop. I went into the Blackburn shop, and they asked around for me, turning one up in Bolton. Made the trip and picked it up.

Might I also add that if you need to catch a train to any of the places that have a Lancer in stock, First Great Western will knock a fiver off of the train ticket if you book online and give your email address at this link: fgw5pounds.co.uk/

The ticket must be £6 or over to qualify.

Hope your lucky!!

First of my submitted deals to hit 100! Woohoo!

Can anyone confirm this with any other stores?

Most stores sold all of there stock along time ago. Ino when they were knocked down to about 40 they were hard to find..

any more left in bolton?

chances of getting this is REALLY low, suprised the staff members didn't already nab them all & even ebayed them all.

Gottta love the way a solid gold chainsaw attached to a machine gun is too realistic looking

i`ve got one and its great fun........scares the **** out of my kids lmao

Sorry to the OP, but the fact about them being pulled is pure hype or misinformation, the Gold Lancer got a release because it was GOLD - hence why videogame manufacturers always colour their guns orange, blue, pink etc so that UK retailers can sell them.

Whilst the gold one is UK exclusive, the States got the proper coloured one, which is better.

Ultimately though these were never worth £120 and didn't even get sold at that in the end because they got a price cut prior to launch, my mate ordered one and got charged £60 for it when he picked it up with the game. They're not even well made and are like a kids toy.

To be honest the thought of a fully grown man owning one of these scares the **** out of me as well.

Yes, but what would you DO with it? =/

It's the male equivalent of a doulton figurine.

Your mate got ripped off if he paid £60 for it when he picked up his game at Lauch as it was £30 when purchased with the game.

What if your one of those males that likes Doulton Figurines.......:?.

Is it 24 carat?

Voted hot just for the sales pitch influence the original poster has wielded, won't be buying one to wield myself..but kudos to the OP for trying to make a duff toy sound so appealing.

Just one look at its fugly goldness and its enough to put anyone off, no wonder GS have not been able to shift it :

Safe bet that you like Marcus Fenix more than his gun.

This is why I hate special editions

Its not exactly hype. Because of the laws on Guns, the people who made it had to colour it Gold so it didnt resemble the actual product in the game, which looks a lot more life like, with blood on the chainsaw etc.

Your right, it is manufacturered as a Kids Toy would be, but that doesnt eliminate the Limited quantity, or the importance this investment could be in a few years, if Gears becomes the phenomina that Epic Games predict it to be.

The thing looks great to me, and the Cats hate it, so when they misbehave, the sounds come out.

BTW, last time I looked at this deal, it hit 100degrees, and I was hapy with that. Now its at 285, I couldnt be happier. Im glad that finally, I feel Ive contributed to a site thats given me so much!

Thanks all for making this hotteroonie.

A piece of useless information - If you have Xbox Live and watch this weeks Sentuamessage theres one of these gun thingys on the shelf behind the presenters :-D

Correct. Thats where I got the idea from a few weeks back...

so i take it no one else has found one of these then?

I wouldn't mind one but there's no chance of getting one in Bedford.

Original Poster

Bolton has an unbox and not working one that was ex-display.

Probably get that knocked down a few quid more for that reason.

Checked every gamestaton nearby, no go

Might have to go further afield, mate.

Dont mean to bump, but anyone else had much success here? Be interesting to know if there were any left about the Country.
