GameStation offers gold Gears 2 gun

Pre-order deal costs 130 quid.

UK retailer GameStation has begun taking pre-orders for a Gears of War 2 bundle featuring a replica Gold Lancer Assault Rifle. And it could be yours for a meagre GBP 129.99. Peanuts.

The gold-painted plastic gun is the same model Epic announced was selling like "hot cakes" on Amazon back in August.

In detail: 36-inches in size, weighs 5kg, vibrates and makes a chainsaw noise when three C-size batteries are put in.

The GameStation deal also includes a Limited Edition copy of Gears of War 2.

This contains a 48-page hardback book of art introduced by Cliff Bleszinski, a 'Making Of' DVD, a Dom and Maria keepsake photo, a tin case and an Xbox Live code to unlock a gold-plated Lancer gun in Gears of War 2.

Gears of War 2 is due out exclusively for Xbox 360 on 7th November.
