Company to Produce Wearable Gears of War Armor, Weapon Replicas

By Aaron Linde, May 30, 2008 10:45am PDT It was announced today that TriForce Sales has acquired the license from Epic Games to produce Gears of War 1:1 scale armor and weapon replicas.

Among the offerings are full-size and wearable C.O.G. armor, a C.O.G. helmet and the Lancer Assault Rifle, based on images of the designs from the game. The replica armor and weapons were created in a partnership with sculptor Sid Garrand of Nightmare Armor Studios.

"In my spare time I sculpted a full set of armor for myself, which I enjoyed showing off at conventions," Garrand said. "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."

No price information was divulged by either company, though TriForce notes that fans will be able to place advance orders online beginning July 8. Click through for a video from the company detailing the creation of the C.O.G. suit.
