"When deciding which character to create for our new Epic Scale Bust line, we knew it had to be Marcus Fenix. The facial expression, armor, and uniform were all sculpted with the utmost attention to detail. We knew we wanted our Epic Scale line to tell a story with each piece. The base itself depicts destroyed beauty and the cherub head from the iconic "Mad World" trailer are all part of the storytelling aspect created by our design team," said Drew Seldin, of TriForce. "We are looking forward to seeing what fans think! The TriForce team is proud to present this to all the millions of Gears fans out there. We hope Gearheads will proudly display Marcus as they take on the Locust Horde."

"TriForce shares our vision for the Gears franchise, and they realize what we're going for with each piece they create," said Epic Games Art Director Chris Perna. "The attention to detail is second to none and their love for this project shows.
