Striker’s paint job is similar enough to Gipsy’s and Crimson’s to fit in, but it’s much less sloppy (or at least the ones I’ve seen are). The lines are a lot crisper, especially on the smaller details like the face plate and various exhaust ports. The dirty wash is also more consolidated and does a better job of bringing out the metallic silver of the underlying coat. There’s even some nice silver weathering on the black gears and various under-parts.
Striker technically comes with two sets of accessories: the sting-blades that are attached to his forearms. Each blade connects separately to the arm and can swivel back and forth. They can also be popped off if you want to display him without them.
On a side note, I’m really curious to see if we’ll get another version of Striker with a new chest and his anti-kaiju missile launchers exposed. If so, I hope they include some shooting missile and explosion effect parts…
All around I’m really happy with Striker. He’s a nice little mech figure that features better articulation and a couple of weapons. Like Leatherback, these improvements put him way ahead of the first wave figures, and gives me a lot of hope for the upcoming wave three.
