1:18 Scale Gears of War

Though I have never played the game, I have always been a big NECA Gears of War action figure fan. The sculpting is amazing, the characters and bad guys look cool. The figures are big - 6 inches and massive. I mean, they have some mass in these figures...heavy...heavily armored. They are perfect. Each series had about 4 figures.

With the trend going to the 1:18 scale or 3-3/4 inch size, NECA got onboard and came out with the first two series this year. Series 1 started with Marcus Fenix, Damon Baird, and Clayton Carmine. Series 2 came with a new Marcus Fenix, Dominic Santiago, and Augustus Cole.

The only problem? No Locust bad guys. Once again, how do you let them fight without enemy combatants? Hoping Series 3 and 4 are on the way. Series 1 sold out quickly but I am seeing Series 2 warming the pegs a bit. Anyway, need some Locusts...need to build an army. At this scale, some vehicles would be cool as well.

Comparison with six inch scale.
