Ice-T, rapper, actor, original gangster, Gears of War fan and occasional unboxer, directs his taking things out of boxes talents at the limited edition Gears of War 3 Xbox 360 and one "big-ass Lancer." Yeah. Real talk.

Ice gives us our first look at the Gears-themed console in the wild, an Xbox 360 that lands in just a couple weeks, September 20 in North America. And before you start thinking that Ice is frontin', the artist remarks "I'm not frontin' on y'all. I'm not here trying to act like I'm special or anything." It's just that he's in the game, portraying Griffin, and got the hook up from Epic Games' Rod "GearsViking" Fergusson and Cliff "Dude Huge" Bleszinski.

(Oh, and his band Body Count wrote an original song for Gears of War 3, of course!)

But you can see all that, and what one big-ass Lancer looks like to the scale of one Ice-T, in the video above.
