Steel metal Crimson Omen from GEARS OF WAR

Check this bad boy out!

This was a Christmas present from my friend Eric Smith: welder and metal worker extraordinare. It's the Crimson Omen from the Gears of War video game series done in steel! Eric designed it on computer and then precision-cut it out of a sheet of metal with a water jet. The picture does it no justice: this thing looks positivalutely gnarly up close and in person. Eric knew that I'm a big fan of the Gears of War franchise, and I am both thankful and humbled that he went to the effort to make this.

Now I just need to figure out how to fittingly display it. Any ideas? :-)

Display Idea:
Glue it to a piece of clear plexiglass, frame the plexiglass, put some red l.e.d.s along the edges of the frame and then put some black felt behind the glass. Should give a 3D look and the plexiglass will glow red and show off the steel art. Which is pretty darn well done by the way.

Admit it: You WANT this to be a real game...

The game that really lets you battle Hell on Earth!  Guaranteed to send Dianne Feinstein into a frothing frenzy, make Chuck Schumer&#...
