Oh, hey, those Gears of War figures are out. If you're after one or two, great, hope you got ‘em. If you're after all four of them, this may be of interest: NECA are to release a box set, which includes all four Gears of War figures in the one pack plus a couple of minor additions, like a new Locust head and the Hammer of Dawn. No word on price yet, but it should be out in a few weeks time.
I'd be interested if the figures were packaged by well-paid employees with fair benefits, overtime pay and humane working conditions. If not, I'd just feel like a whore. And I'm sick and tired of feeling whoreish — esp considering the profit the original Gears made and how easily it could do things right.
I just rejected a Raiders of the Lost Ark toy at Target because it didn't meet these specifications. Not a single one. Indy would be ashamed.
