Gears of War gets its own Erector setsPosted 1:23 pm on Thursday, October 4th, 2012 by John 'Spartan' Nguyen
Wow, I didn’t know Erector (yes, I know you giggled) is still around. They’re producing a new vehicle line for Gears of War featuring the C.O.G. Armadillo, C.O.G. Centaur and C.O.G. King Raven. By getting one of these models, you’ll get to build them like LEGOs, except they’re more detailed and life-like.
Here’s the description for each of the vehicle.
- C.O.G Armadillo – Designed for fast transportation, the C.O.G Armadillo features three rotating gun turrets, a trap door, six wheels and a mobile front tread.
- C.O.G King Raven – This transportation and assault helicopter for the C.O.G army features rotating propellers, two mobile doors and retractable landing gear.
- C.O.G Centaur Tank – This authentic C.O.G tank has a hood-mounted 360° rotating turret with a mobile cannon, four real-working large wheels and a mobile front tread.
- Locusts vs Delta Squad Battle Set – Recreate a battle scene between the C.O.G Delta Squad and the Locusts, including a watchtower, tanks and crates. Then choose your side: the C.O.G. army with the Armadillo and enter the battle!
So how much are these bad boys? The lowest starts at $24.99, while the highest will cost you $59.99. The most complex model will have around 300 pieces, while the least will contain 80 parts. Also included are character figures, building instructions, stickers and tools. The Gears of War Erector sets are exclusive at Toys “R” Us and www.toysrus.com.
