Epic Games is releasing a Gears Of War 3 Retro Lancer. The Lancer, produced by NECA, will be available as part of select bundles for the Xbox 360 game, Gears of War 3. But it will also be available as a stand alone item come September 13, for those who don’t want the game.

Used primarily in the Pendulum Wars as the COG soldier’s primary choice weapon, it was abandoned about a year after Emergence Day because the weapon was ineffective to the Locust Horde’s fighting tactics. However, following the Sinking of Jacinto when supplies started becoming sparse, the Retro Lancer started cropping up in fighting forces once again
