Mass Effect weapon enthusiasts prepare to get excited!

Available for sale is a rare, hand-made custom life-size N7 Valkyrie Rifle replica based on the assault rifle as featured in the Mass Effect 3 video game.

Only eleven N7 Valkyrie Rifle replicas were ever made by Volpin Props in 2012. One was a special red-black version for the prop artist’s own collection, while the remaining ten were silver-black versions for release to both the general public and Mass Effect industry executives (for promotional use purposes). 

This one is one of the ten, the condition of which is described as “as new, excellent”. 

You can see this specific N7 in amongst the others (including the special red version) in the following image:

This weapon replica is a high quality “work of art”. Only ten exist that were made by hand by a professional prop-maker for display purposes, for collectors, and for cosplay/sci-fi fans alike.

This N7 rifle is available for sale for $5,490 (or make an offer). The price is reasonable considering one of these sold in 2012 for $10,000.

GEARS OF WAR 2 Lancer Replica (TriForce)

If you liked the Amazon Edition of the GEARS OF WAR 2 Lancer then you’ll flip out over this one.

This Lancer Assault Rifle is hand-finished and hand-painted to precision quality. Intricately crafted and cast in polystone, it stands a massive 38″ in length and weighs in at 20 pounds!

Manufactured by TriForce and sculpted by the director of TriForce Erick Sosa (in conjunction with Sideshow Collectibles), this has to be the best GEARS OF WAR 2 Lancer Weapon Replica on the market. Well, that would be if was still on the market. Unfortunately it was produced as a Limited Edition of 500 and they’ve all since sold out. 

But it’s never over until the fat collector sings and he doesn’t get to do that unless he keeps his eye on eBay to (hopefully one day) snap up a second hand sale of what is the most authentic trademark GOW weapon brought to life!

And don’t think you won’t find it on eBay if you keep looking. Right now there’s an Authentic (Signed at the 2011 Gears of War Comic Con Panel) TriForce GEARS OF WAR 2 Lancer on eBay as I write this. Unfortunately it’s not for the faint-financially-hearted with a price tag of $2000.

Or you can just keep checking back here because if we see it, we’ll post it.
