After selling over 3 million copies already Gears of War 3 is definitely one of the most popular games released in 2011 so far, so fans are bound to create some pretty cool stuff based on their favorite characters or weapons in the series. DeviantArt has held a contest to find the best art their users could create which spawned some fun drawings awesome enough that even Cliffy B had to throw out his props on twitter. If there’s one medium for video game art that really turns heads it’s LEGO so when someone designs a life size, working LEGO Lancer we just have to show it off.
There’s already quite the selection of weapons in Gears of War 3 including a gun that can blast chickens at the enemy but PLUM B of the MOCPages forums has created a rubber bland launching LEGO Lancer with fully functioning trigger and chainsaw mechanisms. PLUM B has posted several photos and a video that shows him blasting paper cut-out Locust and explaining the mechanism used to make a working trigger, safety and chainsaw. It’s impressive to see all the pieces laid out and then re-assembled into a functional gun complete with rubber band ammo clip and priming mechanism. Check out the shooting and construction demonstration video below:
Now LEGO COG’s will be fully armed and ready to active reload their rubber band ammo when the DUPLO Locust invade. We anxiously await the creation of a life-size LEGO Silverback with functioning rocket transformation, you know… just in case. It’s amazing what can be done when people with real talent fall in love with a video game. Keep up the work Gears fans. The world loves the wallpapers, posters and lifelike recreations of beloved characters and items. Even after the Gears of War series ends it will live on because of the fantastic works of art created by the fans.
