In a jaw dropping move, ultra-realistic, life-size weapons and armor based on Gears of War are to be produced.

TriForce Sales acquired the license from Epic to produce these full scale replicas of Gears of War armor and weapons.  TriForce partnered with the master sculptor Sid Garrand of Nightmare Armor Studios to recreate the C.O.G Armor and Lancer to exact specifications.

“I have been a huge fan of Gears of War since its release in November of 2006,” said Garrand. “In my spare time I sculpted a full set of armor for myself, which I enjoyed showing off at conventions. When the fans saw it they all asked me how they could get it. I was thrilled when the team from Epic saw it, and liked it, which allowed us to move to the point to where we are today. It all truly began as a labor of love.”

“Sid Garrand’s team came to our offices wearing the armor one day, and everyone here at Epic was blown away. The level of detail in these pieces is incredible, and it’s so rewarding to see our work come to life,” said Dr. Michael Capps, president, Epic Games. “We’re really psyched TriForce will give fans – and our team – the chance to own some of these awesome pieces from the Gears of War franchise.”

Marcus Fenix could only be so proud to have cosplay fans everywhere rally together against the Locust.  I have to wonder if this will open up the possibilities of making Gears of War movies since the time and effort to design these has been eliminated.  Oh Indy film makers; do not disappoint me.
