Product Description

The trademark weapon of the COG military, the Lancer is a fully automatic assault rifle that's perfect for short-to-mid-range combat. It's chainsaw bayonet is a powerful melee weapon that takes out most enemies in a single blow. New uses for the Lancer continue to emerge, with recent reports of "chainsaw duels," which combine the chainsaw attack with traditional sword fighting. It can also be used to cut a path through overgrown areas.

1.0 out of 5 stars 'Quality? What Quality?' should be NECA's middle name November 11, 2008
By Nobody
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
I got my Lancer two days ago. It's been a 36" bundle of disappointments, even though I knew what was coming.

1. Appearance: While the blood is nicely applied, it does nothing for the look of the gun. All the right levers and triggers are there, but they do nothing. And despite claims to the contrary on the product's description, this is not the Lancer used in GOW2, but GOW1 (shorter barrel), which makes me wonder if it wasn't a delayed tie-in with the original game.

2. Functionality: Here is where this gun really falls on its face. For almost $150, this gun does ALMOST NOTHING. Heck, if you don't know how to wedge a piece of metal between the uppermost battery and the battery terminal (small coin, paper clip, bit of tinfoil, whatever works), it DOES do nothing. The chainsaw noise sounds like it came off of a $3 toy in the 80s, and the vibration is even less convincing. With the price tag on this joker, they could've at least included an assault rifle sound effect (they used the assault rifle trigger for the saw for some reason). Heck, for that price, they could've lit the blue lights all over the gun, as well as the sights, and made some of the levers move, even if they didn't do anything. As it is, this thing's a very big, very pretty motorized paperweight, however well the fake blood is applied.

Also, that's not weapons-grade plastic. That's thick, cheap toy plastic. Nice to see that NECA is willing to cut corners on their contracts. The plastic hindsight also is slightly cloudy and often badly scratched on the examples I've seen, another trademark of poor-quality plastic. Not that it matters, since this gun doesn't even make a 'bang-bang' noise.

The extractable magazine's ease of release varies by the gun.

2.0 out of 5 stars Overpriced and flawed. November 7, 2008
Verified Purchase
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
Paid 139.99 for this and the game. Had to wedge a piece of aluminum foil in the battery terminal to get it to work. Have had problems with NECA collectibles before as they don't seem to be of the highest quality. I figured things changed since this was a major release and the price tag was steep. Quality control really dropped the ball on this one.

2.0 out of 5 stars False Advertising! November 12, 2008
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
I was eager to receive this product and knew I was paying a little extra just to add what I thought would be a cool collectible to my collection, but oh was I way off by paying what I did for this piece of junk. First of all, this was falsely advertised as being constructed with "weapons grade" plastic, because in reality, the plastic feels the same as my sons super soaker. Since I'm in the military and handle weapons frequently, I can guarantee that this is not made with quality heavy duty plastic. The lancer looks and feels like a toy, plus the poor paint application doesn't help at all. Top it off with paint rubs, and you have a good idea that NECA put together a poor product. The look and feel of this item is extremely disappointing that I almost forgot to mention that the gun doesn't even work unless you shove aluminum paper in the battery compartment. What a joke! Amazon's service is always top notch, but NECA should go out of business over this rip-off. 2 stars for at least making it look decent, but it should have cost much less and should have been described more accurately.

1.0 out of 5 stars $39.95 and things would have been fine November 11, 2008
Verified Purchase
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
Not going to repeat what has already written and posted, but this "collectible" was a disapointment. My 14 year old son likes it, so I guess that's all that is important. It is about $100 overpriced for what you get.

2.0 out of 5 stars Such a wasted opportunity November 11, 2008
Verified Purchase
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
Let me begin by saying that I am a very big fan of the Gears of War games, and own several of the action figures (of highly mixed quality) sold by NECA, the company that makes this Lancer replica. So in hindsight I suppose I should've seen it coming...

I got mine the day after receiving the game, and right off the bat it didn't work. The fix described did the trick, at least (I used a penny, which was pretty easy to get into place), but I've noticed from looking at other examples of the gun that there are a lot of blemishes, such as poorly aligned and glued parts. The biggest disappointment, however, is the fact that the item only has one true action feature, the rather unconvincing "chainsaw noise" and vibration (the handful of moving parts and the removable magazine are to be expected in a full-scale collectible of this size and price, at the very least). NECA could've added a sound and vibration effect for the assault rifle firing, and also lit the illuminated sights and body lights. They chose to do none of these things, a severe disappointment in a collectible that costs at least twice as much as the deluxe version of the game. Then again, what is really to be expected from a company whose action figure version of Baird cannot be posed in any manner that doesn't involve looking like he is in dire need of a bathroom?

Of lesser note, the model is of the original Lancer, not the GoW 2 Lancer. The second Lancer has a longer barrel that protrudes past the tip of the saw, whereas the original's barrel was just slightly shorter than the saw (See? Told you I was a GoW geek).
