Thankfully not much between August and September so that means plenty of money to save up for that collector's. Never picked up the previous Gears CE, but time for that to change.

hell motherfucking yes.

Although seems the only difference between EE and CE are:

Statue
infected weapon omen skins
art book


does that warrant the price tag difference?

the statue is obviously the selling point. Its made by Triforce so (hopefully) that will mean its very high quality. the 96-page hardcover art book is also nice and the weapon skins are a just a little bonus. In the end, it will all come down to the quality of the statue. Hopefully it will be truly worth it and we won't just jipped like the dead space plasma cutter and batman AA batarang.

while it is a selling point, there are just too many games with all the statues and big stuff.... I cant fit anything else in my place.... looks like the limited edition for me..

I'm sorta bummed by this. I'd rather have a Delta Squad statue as opposed to just Marcus because of the team feel the Gears series has always had. Oh well, I'll still grab this.

I honestly dont even want the statue, but more the infected omen skins. Me personnally, I just like in game items. I will still get the epic edition though. I would've prefered a Delta Squad statue instead of just Marcus like others have said, or even a locust statue.

although I really like gears and all an extra $70 for a statue, book, and skins is a bit much....

I was thinking about the price for this and although Ihave no idea the quality of the work, although I hear Triforce makes exceptional quality products.

So lets just break it down:

Nice looking 12" statue = anywhere between $50 and $260 (not ebay) (www.tfaw.com)
Nice art book = aruond $30 to $40 (again, not ebay) (chapters.com)
Weapons pack = I have no idea...what $5 bucks? (or way overpriced on ebay)

So at a minimum we have about $85 worth of extra stuff in the EE.

So I guess the $70 price tag difference is made up for.

I am so getting the epic edition. I've been a fan of gears since the very beginning so what better way to go out then with the epic edition. I've already got a Marcus fenix figure that stands at about 13inches but if this is exclusive to and created just for the epic edition I'm all for it. Long as they crammed everything from the limited into it its all good. C'mon September

Yeah it would be nice to see what those skins look like, but I'm not really worried about it since I unlocked all of the flame skins for my weapons and the gold retro lancer.

Well I've seen the Infected Omen Weapon Pack skin and it's not that impressive it's like the skin the lancer had with the red cog and the skull in the middle but on this it has the flaming effect. I have a tiny picture of it from a swedish webshop but I do not know how to put it in...

Edit: I've just put it in my avatar picture to the left, hope you guts can see it...

This will probably be one of the first Special/Limited/'Epic' Editions of a game that I will probably get at launch.

My speculation was true. I knew Epic wouldn't let me down. Pre ordered it the day I could (couple months ago). Tons and tons of awesome shit. Me likes! Not like I have room for anything at this point.

Not sure yet what I'm getting. I was thinking about getting the regular edition like usual but I might actually break down and get the CE. Still need some money for a few other games coming out though.

On Amazon it says that the Limited Edition comes with the Infected Omen skins and it doesnt say anything about them in the epic edition.
