    Love the coaster, the mug... not so much

    Let me start by saying I received these as a freebie but will be reviewing them from the perspective of someone who would have spent the full price to acquire them. First, the coaster is great. Exactly what you would expect from a coaster... it keeps my tabletops dry. My major issue is the mug. When opening the box and reading instructions, it specifically states something along the lines of "don't microwave this mug". It's a mug... I was under the impression I could make some hot tea by nuking some water in the micro. No biggie though! I'll just use it for coffee. Then it states "should not be used with hot drinks". Well... this is merely a mug by its physical presence. I would have been quite irritated had I spent actual money on this, especially the retail price. For those considering the purchase... I would suggest looking away and purchasing something elsewhere that actually allows you to use it for coffee or hot tea. If you want it for your collection, or plan on using it for cold things like I will have to do, then go for it. I still question the price, though.

    Fantastic Pre-Order Bonus

    This Gears of War 4 Best Buy exclusive pre-order bonus is one of the better ones the retailer has offered in recent memory. Personally, I am not really a big fan of statues, figures or other collectibles so to have something practical I could use on a regular basis was a big plus. The brass cup is nice and sturdy, and can hold room temperature and cold beverages fine. Be warned to NOT use it for hot liquids, though. The coaster which completes the set is of good quality and sits by my side at my desk daily. A great pre-order bonus and a really fun gift.

    The cup is awful

    Using the cup makes me feel like I've never drank out of anything before in my entire life. The lip is rolled, but not completely so there is a gap between the lip and the side of the cup. This means whatever beverage you're drinking flows around the lip and gets all over you. I've never had this happen before. I did some soul searching to figure out if I knew how to drink out of cups. I realized I did and tried again. My shirt was once again soaked with what I was drinking. I hate this cup. The coaster is a fine coaster. If this wasn't free I would return it.

    Received the set as part of the Gears 4 Ultimate preorder. The receipt included in the box (ordered online) suggests Microsoft is charging 19.99 for the mug and coaster (it was free to me so no complaints.) My warning though (if you're paying) is that there's a clear message "use only with cold beverages." I'm not sure why anyone would make a cup that resembles a coffee mug that you can only drink cold liquids out of. Who puts ice water or soda in the coffee cup?

    I preordered the Gears of War 4 Deluxe edition and this came with it as a special. The mug and coaster are really cool, but they are mainly for show. I was expecting to be able to drink my coffee out of it at company meetings to intimidate the other employees, but that won't happen. You can ONLY drink cold drinks out of it. It is of course not dishwasher safe either. So, put it on a shelf and admire it if it is free or you are a collector of cool toys, but don't buy it because you want to actually use it. You may be disappointed.

    The only reeason I give it a 5 star ratting is because it came free with my pre-order. I only wish you use the mug with hot beverages. I also was slightly disapointed in the fact that you have to hand wash it, No Dishwasher! Besides that, it looks amazing in person, and I use it eveyday at my computer desk. I love the fact that you can put ice in the cup and a full can of pop! Not may cups are big enought to accomidate a whole can of pop. And the coaster it comes with looks prety cool and works very well.

    Disclosure: I got this set free as part of of the Best Buy GCU program when pre-ordering Gears of War 4. I wasn't expecting much with getting this for free, but was pleasantly surprised when it arrived. The copper plated mug looks great and can accommodate cold beverages. The coaster is made with vinyl or some pho-leather material, so it should last a long time. Definitely a unique gift set for the Gears of War fan or gamer in your life.

    This mug is really nice. for the way it looks only I would give it 5 stars but it has 1 small issue i did not like. it is only for cold beverages. I imagined myself drinking coffee in the office to this mug but you are not able to. So use it for beers or soda, it keeps the beverages cold for a long period of time than regular mugs. I feel bad about not giving it 5 stars since best buy give it as a gift but i have to be honest! sorry!

    I mean for initially being a free add on item for pre-ordering Gears of War 4, which I canceled to pre-order the 500GB Xbox One S Gears of War 4 special edition in the blue color, and still end up only paying for this mug and coaster set is alright by me. I'm happy with the set. I mean I could really use a coaster and I won't be using the mug for coffee, seeing how I don't drink coffee.

    Free Mug? Why Not.

    I would have to say that this is not the most Gears of War merch that Best Buy could be giving away, but I can definitely drink from it. It's a copper mug with a little Gear 4 logo on it. The coaster is pretty cool though, I figured it'd be the cheaper of the 2 but it's actually pretty nice. As a freebie for buying Gears 4 this is a pretty nice add-on, I'm not sure it's worth $20 though.

    I got this free with pre-ordering the game. I wasn't that interested at it initially but that changed as soon as I opened it up. It looks like the cup is made out of copper or brass. It's very shiny. It looks so good, I don't want to drink from it. It also comes with a leather-like coaster, which is good for preventing you from getting in trouble with the woman of the house. LOL.

    I got the Gear of War 4 Mug and Coaster Set along with the Gears of War 4 video game for the Xbox One. Best Buy has always been very good with shipping products to my house in good condition. Best Buy is also been very good about sending out stuff right away. The Gears of War Mug and Coaster Set came well packed and in good shape. It is a very nice set.

    This is a nice mug to look at, but that is pretty much this is all it is good for. The instructions state only use for cold beverages, what is the point of having a much if you cannot use for coffee/tea. I understand it is because the plating used will wear faster due to the heat, just happy this was a free mug and is displayed with my other GOW items.

    I really like the copper and steel finish of this mug. Looks amazing. The only downside is that the box tells you not to put hot liquid in it. That doesn't make sense because it's a coffee mug. I put hot coffee from a Keurig machine in it one time anyway, and the coffee tasted bad. I primarily use it just for water now.

    I love the Gears of War series and was excited to find out another was coming out. I pre-ordered Gears of War 4 and was pleasantly surprised a limited edition mug and coaster set. Great bonus item! Nice collectible copper plated mug and coasters. I plan to just keep mine as a collectible item rather than use them.

    It came with Gears fur me Sri that was nice. And it looks nice, but it vent be used with anything hot according to the slip of paper that cane with it, so it's not super useful. Also, it's only one unit - is misread the tile and thought it said 4 mugs, but it's just one Gears 4 mug.

    loved gears 4, the best gear since 1,2,3, the story campaign is amazing, so much attention to detail, loads of new enemies, environments and boss battles. Its worth it for the story alone and I'm keeping this in my collection. MP is fun as well its the complete package and great addition to your library.

    Hey nothing to complain about here. It was free with my console purchase. Its a cup and coasters. They have the gears logo on them. It holds liquid well enough to get it to your mouth. The coasters will keep condisation from reaching the surface you set them on between a mug or glass and said surface.

    It holds liquid, though not hot liquids. I tend to think of mugs as what you would drink hot drinks out of so it disappoints there. Of course you really should not drink out of a copper cup in general so it seems a bad choice of promotional item. Copper is pretty though, so it looks nice.

    The mug is copper-plated on the outside, brushed stainless steel on the inside. It is not thick, but is of sturdy qulity. I thought the coaster was going to be more rubbery, but it is a hard plastic and seems a bit brittle. Still a welcomed free grift with purchase of Gears 4
