While this is impossible outside of the game – and that’s a good thing – if you want to wave around a life-size and non-lethal Lancer, allow us to point you in the direction of this 1:1 scale, 3D printable prop created by Edgar Monroy.
Monroy has made the files free to download odd of file sharing site MyMiniFactory. All you need to do is download the files and print them on your printer or the at the local 3D printing company or makerspace. The files have been cut into slices so you can print the comically oversized weapon on smaller printers.
There are no further details provided on the page about the design so we’ll have to go off of the provided pictures and what the community is saying. At least one other person has printed their own lancer and it looks damn good thanks to some metallic finishing and blood splatter on the blades.
The only problem with this Lancer is the fact that the chainsaw doesn’t move. We now wait for a dedicated Gears of War fan to modify the files and add a motor inside of the print to allow it to move. Come on internet, we’re depending on you.
