So the statue is glow-in-the-dark and not lit up LED's? Wouldn't mind battery-powered LED's personally. Kind of a shame NECA isn't making the statue when they make the GoW figures, and they've put LED's in Dead Space Isaac's figures which came out pretty nice.

I hope I can get Amazon to tack on $20 on Limited Edition.

I didn't notice before that The Great Wal and Amazon are doing GC battles again and both are offering special characters. Can't go wrong with two companies competing hard for your money...both are fantastic deals with $20 GCs.

Thanks for adding absolutely nothing useful to the discussion. See posts #2, 3, and 4. Enjoy buying your price-dropped EE's in 8 months and keeping them sealed or trying to sell them on eBay or whatever it is that you do.

Oh man, that Savage Grenadier looks tight. I really want that one and Baird. Too bad the Kantus Amazon is getting is the one I dislike the most.

I pre-ordered the Standard from Amazon a couple months ago when the $20 credit was originally up. Will Amazon send me a Kantus code as well, or should I just cancel it and re-order to make sure?

I believe Amazon has a policy of some sort that if a better deal comes along after you already put your order in, they will give you the better deal. So you SHOULD get a Kantus code, but if it is no trouble you could just re-order it.

With Walmart and Best Buy, do they tend to e-mail you a code,
or do they have it in the packaging?

I have also looked on the internet and contacted Epic Games. Since Gears of War 2 came with a Metal Case so will Gears of War 3 Limited Edition and Epic Edition.


So you have been able to confirm the steelbook case then?

and I found this info on bestbuy.com

Enjoy a cast zinc alloy replica of Adam Fenix's Octus Service Medal that he received for his work on the Hammer of Dawn, and use the engraved Xbox LIVE code to unlock the Adam Fenix in-game character for use in multiplayer gameplay

Better add the "actual" retro lancer to the list. Just saw on the GOW Facebook they have them for preorder from Gamestop.

This thread is epic. OP, I salute you. I don't know why people are rating this bad. You have EVERY single detail that anyone would ever need to know about the release of this Gears 3.

I love this thread, and don't let PS3 fanboys who give it bad ratings get you down. Keep up the good work man, this is amazing.

Has anyone pre-ordered the standard edition from Wal-Mart? Did you get the $20 gift card emailed to you yet? Does it work on anything?

The Best Buy website says "code will arrive via e-mail on release date". If this is true they would hopefully be outside the box at local stores.

I seriously hope Amazon adds the $20 credit offer to limited edition. After seeing a few games I have in mint condition are worth about $80 in total on their trade in program I cancelled my standard edition order and am waiting to see if they make it for the limited edition too. I'll probably still order it either way though. Awesome thread OP.

I'm hoping Amazon adds the $20 gift card to the Limited Edition. If not I'm just going to buy it at Gamestop, since UPS tends to deliver games to me extremely late in the day.

So I went down to GS this morning to upgrade my limited edition pre-order to the lancer limited edition. Anyways their computer didnt have a listing for it, though GS.com does. They told me they think it may be a online only pre-order.
