We want Tim to know we appreciate his kindness and contribution to Epic Games and the community.

To show our appreciation to Tim, we are sending him Epic swag signed by the artists at Epic Games. The swag includes a Gears of War poster, two art books, The Gears of War Comic collection in hardcover, Gears of War wall hanging and a Gears of War headset.
