In addition, there will be two episodes that feature the building of the GOW3 chopper and they will premiere on Discovery Channel on September 12th and 19th.

So imagine this, lets say on the release day you were really lucky. You managed to go to the Gears of War 3 release event in New York and get your copy of the game, then you were the one who got their hands on the Gears-themed chopper. And then you went home and played Gears of War 3 on Xbox Live then got both a gold lancer and hammerburst. You'd probably be the world's luckiest Gears of War fan ever.
