Maketoys Striker Noir

Hard for me to imagine how Maketoys will top Striker Noir. It's a nice redeco of an already awesome figure, Striker Manus, and it comes with a set of extra weapons and storage clips. 

The next couple of pictures are alternate versions of Rioter Despotron for done for fun. They weren't planned in the segment above. Maybe I'll add effects and a sky later on.

Maketoys Rioter Despotron

Maketoys Rioter Despotron with Fansproject Intimidators and Causality - Stormbomb. Figures look well together. I miss the days when companies weren't so focused on MP style. The set is a mixture of 1/35th scale war torn building, rubble, game terrain mat and buildings.

Variable Action D-Spec Star Wars AT AT Review

I was surprised by its small size, but not disappointed; it just added more charm to it. AT AT has plenty of articulation and nice details. It comes with 3 tiny Stormtroopers that have optional arm with hand holding gun. For its size I'd say adding one more or two AT AT(s) would add to its presentation especially if you like toy photography.

Maketoys Striker Manus

Striker Manus by Maketoys is an awesome debut for their new line, "Cross Dimension." It's a highly poseable and stylistic take on Optimus Prime. First off, let get one gripe out of the way, I don't like the engineering on the ankle much because of its lack of rotation. Other than that, I really like the figure, and look forward to more from the line.

Notice the silver/grey parts at the bottom of the back? Those parts may hinder proper stances if not shaved off a bit. Just a suggestion.

Blaster transforms from the top of the truck mode. Cool gimmick, but the hands don't grip it as well as I'd like.

Backside looks really cool.

Shoulder articulation is insanely good. Butterfly hinges help to pull off poses such as this and the one below.

Both axes can be linked to form this weapon.

Favorite one in the line up so far. Good mix of aesthetics, articulation, poseability, and balance. It can be cumbersome with the backpack on in bot mode, but it still looks pretty good, and it can be taken off. Also comes with extra head sculpt, but it's hard taking off the one on the figure so I didn't bother because I didn't want to ruin the visors.

 Ab crunch, upper half of chest swivel, waist swivel. Right shoulder's impedes range of movement, but it's enough to pull off poses. Also, the articulation on the legs are pretty awesome. I especially like the knees.

 Extra head sculpt. Too bad I didn't succeed in taking off the standard one.
