Separating those out is a great idea!
Awesome! Constructor V2, Noir and Susanoo all at the same time! Let's throw a few more in there just in case I still have a couple of extra pennies rolling around.
I hope they do a Hypernovae type repaint/remold of this figure so i can pair these two like I did with Battletanker Hypernovae and Nemesis.
30 days? That's a bit frustrating if true considering Maketoys themselves said it'd be out late April.
A Nova Prime repaint of this would be absolutely amazing. Man oh man, I can't get that idea out of my head now. Someone propose that idea to them!
Looks like there is no character profile for Striker Noir. So he must be toy character and non-existent in-universe.
That sucks. Was hoping end of April was still a thing.
Guess I'll just have to keep waiting then...
This thing is freaking awesome! Normally I don't go for things like this, but MT really made some cool stuff with Striker Noir, Manus, and Rioter Despotron.
Alright, I went all in on the Cross Dimensions line. I really want some more fun, playable, poseable figures. I kept eyeballing Striker and Rioter but was trying to stick to collecting G1 MP and sticking to a budget... But Noir just looks amazing and his weapons pack put him over the top! So... Screw it... I'm in... I'm all in...
I feel like I just convinced myself I'm allowed to eat a giant slice of cake, even though it doesn't fit in my diet... I broke the rules... But it's going to be so delicious!
You made a great decision, you will be very pleased with them. They are my personal favorite figures of last year and I believe they are also probably the most fun toys to come along in quite some time.
They are just fun. Complicated enough transformations without Masterpiece level frustrations, great posability and overall interesting designs of the characters. Is there a smoother Megatron handgun transformation out there? I think the alt modes are the weakest aspect but even then, they are fun once you use Cybertronian as an adjective when describing them.
I really just want the coolest robot toy that I can get for my shelf. So many people get caught up in worrying if the figure is exactly like the source material that they prioritize that over just having an awesome looking figure to look at and mess around with. Cross Dimension hits that while still looking somewhat like the source material.
Damn this thing looks awesome
I'd take a SG variant of this in a heartbeat.
The full review of MakeToys' CD-OISP Striker Noir and Weapons Package is up: Toy Review: MakeToys CD-OISP Striker Noir (With Weapons Pack) - Kuma Style
Honestly, there's not much to talk about with this one. It's a straight up repaint of Manus with a bunch of weapons. I did give it a 9/10 because you get so much awesomeness at a really great price.
The gallery is a larger one (for me) at 33 pics and here are some favorites from it:
I wasn't really that interested in the Cross Dimension line (though I'd check them out because cool robot toys are always gonna be cool eye candy even if you don't own them). But then after seeing the color scheme and weapon set on Striker Noir in the photos and videos, I'm all like "oops my wallet slipped" over at TCP. :T
YOUR PICTURES ARE NOT MAKING THIS WAIT ANY EASIER TJ.
When this guy goes on my shelf, my CR Black Convoy would hang his head in shame if he could actually move his head downwards.
If only that weapons pack came separately... then I'd be completely sold on Striker Manus and Rioter Despotron. As it is, I'm torn between those two and MP-10V and whatever Voyager-scale Megatron KBB may or may not release.
