Theres also 2 box sets that are out

Series 1 box set:
Neca Gears of War Action Figures: Box Set


Series 2 box set:
Gears Of War Action Figure Series 2: Box Set


Last but not least a 12in marcus fenix with sound :


Also if you noticed in the series 1 box set the locust drone comes with the hammer of dawn and the locust helmet which is only available in that box set. As for the series 2 box set extras i have yet to spot any.

I was really close to picking up Marcus and Cole the other day. The articulation looked like it a little sparse, but they really are some nice looking figures.

I think I'll probably pick them up at some point... This looks to be a line where I could just nab a few main characters and I'd be happy.

Same here the articulation isn't great on them but if you can find the series 2 Marcus with added articulation pick him up bc you can do some pretty sweet poses with him.

The exploding head figure is awesome. I thought about picking one of those up.

They're great looking figures but like most of NECA's stuff their articulation is a hindrance.  I bought some of Series 1 to photograph for our Toy Database (pics here for anyone interested) and was pretty impressed.  Awesome paint and detail.

I noticed series 3 at BBTS yesterday.

Glad the other members of the squad got made. These are really nice figures, too bad I don't have the room.
