October 3, 2012

Just in time for the holiday season – Gears of War™ fans, video game enthusiasts, and collectors can now bring the game to life by building models of the most popular vehicles – C.O.G. Armadillo, C.O.G. Centaur and C.O.G. King Raven – as well as recreate the Locusts vs. Delta Squad Battle – with these highly detailed sets

With the expertise of the iconic Erector brand, the precision construction and attention-to-detail will engage fans and collectors alike, while the easy-to-follow instructions and cogent vehicle designs make it a fun activity and experience for Gears of War fans at any level. Watch as the Centaur comes to life in this time-lapse video.

Unlike traditional Erector ‘kits’, these models are one-off builds recreating realistic sets from the Microsoft game:
• 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!

Ranging in price from $24.99 to $59.99, for ages 8+, the models feature 80 to 300 pieces and all models will include character figures, building instructions, stickers and tools.

Daniel Pickett
Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com. Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on MSNBC.com, Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
