I had a couple TC era t-shirts, which imo they should bring back. It was around the release of gears 4, I have zero clue as to where they are but I’m certain i still have them. Wish they fit me though i also did get the custom lancer replica which is my prized possession. It was the only thing I wanted for Christmas and I’m so happy I was even able to get it lol. (I considered buying the Mark III lancer for the release of gears 5 but I’m not sure where I would even put the dang gun at lmao.
From the epic era, I didn’t buy anything gears related because I didnt care about the merchandise at the time, I had the games that’s all I cared about tbh. (I no longer have my original copies of Gears 1 and 3 but I still have my copy of Gears 2, I’d say that game case means an awful lot to me, it holds alot of memories. But recently I did buy two neca action figures, the dom Theron disguise figure and the headshot drone (with the COG tags )
I have some other cool stuff like the gears 5 collectors edition, the gears 4 steelbook, kait controller, some of the pops like OG Delta, a brumak, boomer, Kait and JD. I did have clayton but I gave him to a friend.
It’s funny, the cog tags are def a prized possession of mine, I’ve always wanted a pair and with the headshot drone I just bought it’s like a wish come true for me. I used to own a pair some years back but I lost them and Ive been itching to get another pair since, I thought of customizing them to look like Bens with the stomach acid but idk yet. I might keep them how they are. When gears 4 and 5 came out, I went out and bought the tostinos and the rockstar drinks just for the codes, I actually kept all of the gears 5 rockstar cans until I realised I looked like a hoarder with all the empty cans and chips ahoy boxes I had in my room.
I also have the comic con “exclusive items” from 2017, it came with the Cole train hot sauce (terrible btw) a super cool patch which I wasted on a backpack, a Marcus pop, a marcus blanket, and a code for both Lt Walker and Lt Fenix. My biggest gripe with the box was 75% of the items inside were obtainable by everybody else and you could get on amazon for like 10 bucks a piece… the Marcus pop wasnt an exclusive, the hot sauce was terrible tasting and the blanket was super random however the box that held all the stuff is super cool and I still have it.
Oh yeah and I forgot I had bought that carmine hoodie from the insert coin website, super bummed they took that hoodie off the site. I need another one, its starting to fade pretty badly. I did miss the Anthony Carmine coffee mug and I still haven’t forgiven myself for not getting it
I wrote alot but it’s because I own alot lol and I like talking about stuff like this, it means alot to me
