Yeah, I'd do the same, but it's an extra $20 buying it solo. Almost the same deal, basically. Guess it depends if the other extra are worth it.

:applause:OP, great job on the update! I would love to have a full size toy lancer replica. I guess I will be canceling my order at Amazon and putting in my order at Gamestop. It's only money, but a lancer is a lancer! Thanks again for the update!

Wow. It looks cool, but dont way to much. With high gas prices and 9% unemployment rate, Im shocked people still going after these "collector" items.

It would be cool to turn the lancer into a paintball gun if possible...

\\:D/ 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 any item, or is there a catch? Need answer!!!! \\:D/

Don't forget the fact that this is going to have an epic price drop in a few months. They seem to be making a ton of these.

to anyone who pre-ordered the lancer and epic edition, does it charge you the full $230+ right at the checkout or is it charged once both items ship? also is there a pre-auth hold put in place?

I'd like to put in my pre-order online but I don't have enough in my account until the next 2 weeks. Thanks!

This is from the Gamestop website:

"Billing does not occur until shipment is processed."

So, they won't charge your credit card until they ship your item. Once your item is in their shipment processing stream, your card gets charged. I don't believe there is a pre-authorization hold put on your card.

I ordered the Limited Edition with the Lancer and I bought an extra Lancer.

No.


I think that response was for Serpentor - so they don't have a free shipping code right?

IIRC, the original Lancer got battery issues (for sounds, the saw is not motorized). I remember some people actually got an "one time only" credit for the problem (Amazon orders), I think the credit was on individual basic, I remember one guy got a $50 credit from it (I offered to buy the Lancer from him, but he decided to keep it).

It's still a long wait anyway, so plenty of time to decide. Money is tight, so yeah, I don't know how some people got no issue buying a $200+ game. I know if I blow that kind of money on one game, I got nothing else for other games...

OP is correct, there is no free shipping on the Lancer bundles or single Lancer. I purchased the Limited Bundle and an extra Lancer, my shipping for both was $8.99. I live in Oregon, so there is no sales tax.

Again, thank you OP for the great post! You made my day!!!!!!! I wanted the Lancer from Amazon for Gears 2, but found out about it too late. Too expensive on the secondary market. Glad I got in on this one.

I'm still on the fence about this but I'll have to look what I can trade in towards credit for the lancer with limited edition purchase. You'd figure for close to $200 they'd throw in some free shipping or something. Also I'm pissed that Gamestop got one of the worst character DLC's in my opinion. Give me an afro wearing Cole in some pseudo disco alt any day!

I think this new Lancer looks more realistic than the first one. Many comments on Amazon mentioned that once they got their Lancer, they saw how plastic it looked. It looked better from a distance. This new Lancer has the weathering and battle scaring which will give it a real look. More like a movie prop, than a toy replica.

If you want a gold original Lancer, Amazon has them for $200 plus $25 shipping.

Well with 9% unemployment, 91/100 people still have jobs and are earning a wage... That's an awful lot of potential buyers out there still.

I ordered the Lancer Bundle. I seriously doubt that edition will be available after launch. First game I dropped that much cash on. Time to sell some older stuff to make it hurt less

I pre-ordered the EPIC Edition off of Amazon for $149.99 (No tax/ No Shipping)... but really want that Replica Lancer, which is a Gamestop Exclusive (which sucks... because I hate them).

Gamestop's EPIC Edition + Replica Lancer Bundle came out to $268.85 ($22.88 for Tax/ $15.99 in 2 Day Shipping)... so basically the Lancer is going to cost me $119. Ugh... I don't know what to do!

It will be like Amazon you will get your $20 Gift Card after the game is shipped. I will add this to the OP because it is becoming a FAQ.


At Walmart.com you pay for the egift card upfront and get it immediately.

I still have my original Lancer from Gears 2 in the box. Never opened it and now I'm scheduled to move. I wonder if I should attempt to get rid of it first?

Kind of sad they're doing yet ANOTHER Lancer for 3. :-/
