The sixth wave of GEARS OF WAR figures has arrived and it looks more insane than ever:

The Figures included in this series are: Skorge, Kantus Priest, Boomer Mauler and COG soldier, each one boasting an extremely high level of detail, the kind you’ve come to expect from NECA. The character design in the games is so distinctive and the figures are equally stunning, bringing to your toy shelf the intimidating and occasionally terrifying look of the franchise. Shipping in March, these 6-inch figures can be purchased individually or you can take advantage of a savings of $11.85 by snagging them as a four-figure set.

And if you’re a fan, you might be pleased to hear that Epic is in the process of finalizing content for the beta release of GEARS OF WAR 3! Check this out from Attack of the Fanboy:

Mike Capps of Epic Games recently spoke about the upcoming Beta for Gears of War 3, and what may or may not be included in the trial period. “We know that the Gears 3 beta access codes will be highly sought-after, so our most passionate fans will get the inside track. The beta starts in the spring and, honestly, we’re still debating what exactly is going to go into the beta so fans will want to be there from the very beginning to see how it evolves and grows,” stated the developer.

Personally, I think Gears has an awesome formula for online multiplayer. The biggest problem that I had with Gears of War 2 was the actual functionality of multiplayer and playing the game outside of with a group of friends. Incorporating a matchmaking service for features like the Horde Mode that actually works, is key. The Call of Duty, Battlefield, and Halo Franchises do this really well. It’s also probably why they are so popular. You can pick up any of these games at any time, friends online or not, and find a game with no hassle within just a few moments you are in on the action. This is something that wasn’t possible in Gears 2 until long after the game’s initial buzz wore off.

And finally, if you still haven’t gotten your hands on the games, here are the Amazon links you’ll need to get ’em, or pre-order the third!
