Glad to see this guy finally coming out. Care to tell where you ordered from?
I live in Asia, and ordered from a local website
Got some action shots of him coming up!
Some quick photos. Gotta say, as a first purchase for third party, this thing is awesome!
Nice pics. Welcome to the to Cross Dimensions where your money is no longer safe. Now you just need to pick up Striker Manus and Rioter Despotron. While you're at it you will need to be ready to preorder Thunder Manus and his repaint too.
In all seriousness this is a really great line with the most posable transforming figures out there. The quality is top notch and this may ruin you on many other third parties (and HasTak).
Ah! So probably still a bit before he arrives in the States.
Great pics, btw. But they're not making the wait any easier. I want my Noir!
Come on TCP! Get those Noirs in tomorrow, I want to ship a big order with him, Roiter, and Perfect Effects Goria!
Everybody! Raise your hands and send your energy to the freight companies so the Striker Noir stock arrive at our retailers sooner! ↖(▔^▔)↗
I just got Striker Manus and Rioter Despotron last Friday as my first non-KO third party Transformers. The Striker Manus mold is EXCEPTIONAL, it's probably the best toy I've ever handled. With that said, I made the mistake of opening up Rioter Despotron the same day I opened Striker Manus and I've been feeling like Rioter just doesn't compare to Manus. I'm trying to make myself like him more and I'm sure in time this feeling will fade, but if you end up getting others maybe spread them out a little more to give each one their time to shine.
For me, SM is more articulated while RD looks cooler. But both are awesome in their own ways!
Noir has S-tier articulation!!!
I've got about a half dozen figures on my desk that I thought had good articulation. I'm trying to get any of those firgures to do the poses posted by RookandCranny's new Striker Noir. None of them can... LOL.
I should have bought this instead of Striker Manus.
I found a new use for the vane gun
I should note that I had to turn the rod around to do this as the vane gun plugs in backwards, so getting him to hold it is a little tricky
That weapon set plus creativity is the gift that keeps on giving. A hammer type weapon is one of the few destructive forces Noir was missing.
The wind vane looks better as a hammer than a gun.
Hmmm... Could give that to the eventual Ultra Magnus!
Me: oh man noir will be here by the end of the month
USPS: we'll see about that
Yay vid review is up. Man are these weapons just the best. Soooo many cool display options and we literally don't even have enough CD figures for all the weapons yet haha.
Just got my ten day notice on this guy from BBTS. So close...
