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.Read more ›

So to review again CRAP CRAP CRAP
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).
