What's Up Gears of War. May 9th.

Welcome to What’s Up Gears fans! We’re here to bring you the latest and greatest news, community content and more from the Gearsiverse.

Here’s What’s Up this week in Gears:

  • New Gears Funko Pop! figures releasing this month
  • Issue 1 of the new Hivebuster Comic is out now!
  • Golden Gun returns to Gears 4 on May 14th

New Gears Collectibles


New Funko Pop! Figures

*Over-excited hyperventilating*

Yes, it’s finally time for some more Gears Funko Pop! figures and we can’t quite handle how awesome this latest collection is. The next series release features two of the most infamous and popular Locust leaders to finally invade your collection – Queen Myrrah and Skorge! Just look at them!

Alongside these long awaited Funko Pop! figures are Gears 5 Kait (as she appeared in the E3 2018 trailer), Classic version of Marcus and a small-but-mighty Boomer.

All five Funko Pop! figures release later this month and are available to pre-order now at your Pop! retailer of choice! If you’re after Skorge, you can find him exclusively at Gamestop and in other select retailers in Europe.

A Collector's Box is shown unpacked. There is a hat with the Gears Pop logo and a notebook with the Gears Pop logo. Four Funko Pop! figures are shown: Anya, Queen Myrrah (Pantina Dipped), Skorge (Mono-Red Dipped) and Marcus Fenix (Gold Dipped) with matching character pins.

Oh it gets better. This is the Gears of War Funko Pop! Collectors Box, a limited release collectable set that contains a whole lot of awesome. (The box itself is also a whole lot of awesome, trust us).

If you manage to secure one these limited-edition collectable sets before they’re gone forever, here’s what you’ll find inside:

Funko Pop! Figures

  • Marcus Fenix (Gold Dipped)
  • Skorge (Mono-Red Edition)
  • Queen Myrrah (Patina Dipped)
  • Anya (First Time Ever)

Swag

  • Gears Pop! Baseball Hat
  • Gears Pop! Physical Pins for Marcus Fenix, Skorge, Anya and Queen Myrrah
  • Gears Pop! Artbook

If you want to see the whole Collectors Box experience in more detail, we’ll be unboxing this live on our Gears 4 Developer Stream today at 3pm PT / 6pm ET on live.gearsofwar.com. Don’t miss it!*

*If you are ‘Team Keep It In The Box’, you may want to find emotional support before the stream starts.

The Gears Pop! Collectors Box is available exclusively at Gamestop and is available for pre-order now ahead of its release on May 23rd. The Collector’s Box will also be available in Europe via select retailers.

New Gears Action Figures

In addition to the stylized Funko Pop! figures, we’ve also got brand new 1/12 scale figures on the way from Storm Collectibles!

We know articulation is also really important for Gears fans, which is why both figures have over 30 points of articulation for greater control over posing and position. Both Marcus and Cole also come packed with a ton of accessories, weapons and interchangeable heads included – from Dom’s Knife for Marcus to a Thrashball Cole head – so you’ll have plenty of control over their look too!

You can pre-order both Marcus and Cole now ahead of their release this Summer. A special Vintage Marcus variant figure with an added Frag Grenade accessory is also available for pre-order exclusively at Gamestop.

Upcoming Events

Why have one Golden Gun when you can have 10? (Yeah, we sure told that 20 year old game!).

4XP Golden Gun will replace Gnashers Only KOTH beginning Tuesday 14th May.

Gilded RAAM Challenge

This is your official warning that we are now in the final 30 days of the Gilded RAAM Challenge!

Here’s a few tips on completing your three challenges in time for the deadline:

  • Co-Op Campaign on Hardcore: Trying to find a new Gears partner to take this on with? Try the LFG feature in the official Gears Club or Xbox App!
  • Reach Re-Up 10: Horde is an amazing way to earn huge amounts of XP on the higher difficulties, especially if you equip an XP Bounty. Find a good team, squad up, and destroy those 50 wave Horde runs.
  • Earn 1,000,000 Challenge Points: If you’re looking to complete this in Versus, King of the Hill offers the quickest bang-for-buck return on time invested.

If you need a reminder of the Gilded RAAM Challenge and how to take him to Gears 5, you can read up on the entire Challenge here. You can now also track your Gilded RAAM progress on the official Challenge Page.
