Life-sized Gears of War COG Armor Suit up for grabs in online contest

Calibur11, maker of Xbox 360 'Vault' casings, is giving Gears of War cosplayers a chance to win an authentic, life-sized, “holy crap, I would trade my firstborn child for this” COG Armor Suit. The aptly labelled 'Ultimate Gears of War Collectors Item' is being given away to promote Calibur11's new Gears of War 3 Vault, an interactive 3D console case that will ship alongside Epic's game on September 20.

 Entering Calibur11's COG Armor Suit giveaway is as simple as picking up a Gears of War 3 Vault on launch day, digging out the entry code, and entering it at Calibur11's website. Fans can also skip the purchasing part altogether and obtain a free code on the site after September 20th. On January 15th, 2012, Calibur11 will draw one grand prize winner to receive the fully-padded COG Armor Suit complete with helmet, industrial resin composite parts, and a 'high end automotive paint finish'. 100 runner-ups will receive an exclusive Bleed Out hoodie.

“Simply put, the COG Armor Suit is a sick prize that we’re proud to offer our community,” said Coy Christmas, CEO of Calibur11 (and owner of the best name ever) in a prepared announcement. “This is a unique item that any collector or Gears of War fan would love to own and the only way to have a chance of getting it is to get your code and enter.”

Calibur11's contest doesn't cost a thing, so it can't hurt to try for this rare Gears of War collectible. It may, however, hurt trying to drive and/or ride the bus while wearing the COG Armor Suit, so we suggest buying an extra large carrying case if you are lucky enough to win it.

    I would not want to wear that, its basically a red shirt in trek or a trooper and starwars. Bad mojo.

    Not sure if joking, or if just troll. Why WOULDN'T you want to wear it!? For ONE thing, it's COG ARMOUR! And for a SECOND thing, It's STILL COG ARMOUR!

    What the heck is that baseball cap looking thing on the side of the Xbox?

    Controller rest? I'm just guessing.

    It's for winding up your garden hose. Either that or it makes the XBOX more aerodynamic? Maybe they can add some speed holes.
