Got my tracking just last night, located in the U.S.

Ditto here. And it looks like the postal strike/lockout in Canada has thankfully been averted.

Interesting.  I use to get tracking automatically, but now the past couple of times I don't.  I think CS hates me.  Nah, but seriously.  I wonder how they decide who to sent tracking to.  It  seems like some people get it and some people don't. Question

Arrived! (Japan). My first 1/6 NOM. Looks good. The packaging is nice and tight. I like the poster is wrapped around the tube.

I will echo the pouches and belt color is not fitting. Will dye tonight. The gas tanks hooked on his coat is no good. Realistically, a leather coat would never hold 2 metal tanks. Physically, the tanks rest all cock-eyed. Would have been better to have a slit in the jacket so the tanks could attach somewhere inside. At the very least, a bracket to keep the tanks straight and upright. Will dig in my parts bin for something...

Verdict: cool fig, good presence, but constrained by construction.

If you find a solution for the tanks let us know what you used.

Von arrived this morning.  Faster than I was expecting.  Initial thoughts:

Looks pretty good.  Tan pouches don't stick out as bad as I thought, but still look out of place.  Not sure if I'll dye them or just remove them entirely.

The pleather coat looks better than I thought it would.  I'm mixed on the shoulder patch, but it's hardly noticeable, so no big deal.  

Completely agree about the not-great method of hanging the tanks off his coat.  I wish there were wires in the hoses, which would have easily solved the problem.  As it is, the molded hoses force the tanks into unnatural positions.  Another solution would have been a second set of loops below the first, as the tank hooks are quite long.  My easy fix to at least get the tanks to hang side-by-side was to wrap a black twist-tie around the bottoms of the hooks.  Invisible and a big improvement.

In general, I'm pretty happy with it, despite the minor design flaws.  Glad to have it in my collection.

Landed this morning in N.Ireland.

Very disappointing in hand. The coat is flimsy and cheap, the tanks attachment is rotten - move his arm and the tanks either fall off or sit at a highly unrealistic angle. Very surprised it passed AW's standards.

Colouring on the belts was fine tho for those that were worried.

Would be an instant sell but for the fact the market will be flooded.

A real shame and the most disappointing 3AA in years. Sorry, wish I could say otherwise.

saw a FB pic were owner closed up coat, made him look like the art in shitty comic and does look way cool like that..

wish we could get q+a goin again. is VON a rogue NOM? why does he wear a flak vest under coat and other NOMS including commanders dont seem to need or want one?

i like to think its cuz he is rogue NOM initiating his own plan to kill Roth, one that deviates from the DD NOM plan so they want to kill him, see him as a threat as well so he is all paranoid.

not even inhand and feel the same in regards to how Ash was ok with that tank design. also using the same exact trinity dripping logo on both tanks AND the embroidered patch. christ it would take all of a few seconds to cut off one or both drips(for patch) to make them all more unique. seems so phoned... sigh oh well.

honestly lookin forward to non-Ash stuff via threeA now more than ever, die antword and other licenses like 2000ad.

Received my membership pack today, yay! Not a fan of the gas tanks, I guess that pretty much goes without saying at this point though. Used a twist-tie to try to keep the tanks in place, but had a harder time with this than I thought I would. Other than the tanks though, I think this is a decent figure. The coat turned out pretty good, wasn't sure if I'd like the leather look, but when the anniversary commanders arrive they should all display well together. I opted to take the pouches off the belt and close the coat up, looks better imo.

Here's a few more photos of Von I thought turned out alright. Had me a mini photo session, which was fun since I don't tend to do that much.

Having a tough time getting Von to stay on the shelf, might have to change to him to a simpler pose as he's beginning to get well acquainted with the floor.

I got a Nom de Plume card, pistol in crook of elbow.  Cool

I like the inclusion of the postcards with figures, it's a nice little bonus.

GOT the VON in!
I love this figure. The tanks slouch yes, but they add to the aesthetic in my view. I wish they made a hand sculpt to fit the damn broom handle!  The paint app is pretty darn good compared to what I was expecting . The trench is the sickest piece on this figure, so soft and well made! To contrast other users on here, this is probably my favorite 3AA figure to date. It isn't "perfect," but it is a damn good toy!
He's going in with the 1/6 deeds! So stoked!

Yeah, he's a great figure. About the corrosion represented in the stitching of the NOM symbol . . . That has meaning, it has to.

Postcard I got was second from the top (left) in the collage . . . Wouldn't mind scoring a Little Shadow in one of these.
