They are shipped separately, like you my GID still hasn't shown up, held hostage by postal sort center Sad

Carter arrived yesterday. Have to say I was a bit worried by the first photos of him that I saw posted. The suit did not look not quite right, but that might be because the photos were taken in artificial light.

In hand though he is spot one. The suit is just the right colour and material, which is a different material to that used for the earlier white one I had. The head and hands are quite matt and really work. The suit and helmet are nicely weathered.

Couldn't agree more, most of the photos doesn't do the faux leather suit justice.
Both red and yellow look amazing in-hand!

Silver arrived here (uk) on the 24th.

Odd figure tbh, looks strange solo but put him with your other 1/6 and his size and looks give huge menace as he towers over other humanoids. Silver suit very responsive to mood lighting as it's as reflective as heck. Really works well for posing in group scenarios.

On the downside - suit should be weathered, the right knee suit pockets has a stitching design on the front that hasn't been carefully placed - unlike how it would be on a real world mass produced garment. Very sloppy. Shame the ampule holders on the shoulders aren't filled either. Missed opportunity.

8/10 for me and has me looking forward to solider being offered... 2016?

Merry Xmas evenfallowers!

The silver is really outstandingly awesome! I do agree with others that the black stitches are not only unnecessary, but also poorly done. However, that by no means ruins the figure. The reflective suit and skin of the thing are so eye catching that you (or at least I) don't tend to notice the stitching. The GID is really well done as well. It's dirty and extremely bright in a good way. After receiving the figures and getting some sweet backstory through the couple of booklets thus far, I've decided to just say "Screw it!" and make up some storyboards of what I want to see in an Evenfall movie/tv show (lots of screaming Strigoi and heavy THUG bots with broken feeder spikes lodged in their heads from combat). I'll try to send or show them in person to Ash and see what happens. Probably nothing, but I like the idea of at least trying to make something cool.

Try Post options in the bottom right corner of your Imgur post.
Select Embed post followed by Use old embed code in the bottom left corner.
Copy the "old" code in your post.

Or copy the one bellow

Code:
<iframe class="imgur-album" width="100%" height="550" frameborder="0" src="//imgur.com/a/9V5hU/embed"></iframe>

[edit]
Forget it, it doesn't work.
Sadly it only shows up in preview mode.

GID arrived...super cool...helmet was broke though. The silver suit is really bright, it's a nice contrast to the body.

Just received my yellow Strigoi. It's beautiful. Love the new fabric they used on the spacesuit. Can't say enough. One of the most satisfying ThreeA purchases in a very long while. For me, total winner.

That unfortunately is a common problem, I had to fix a few on my own.
Also, time your email during their office hours (9am~5pm HK time, M~F) and it should go though.

How did you fix the pivot joint, wutasi? Mine suffers from the same issue.

I've had my Silver/GID Strigoi for a month or so and I only just realized something.  The nametag on the suit is "Z. Smith".  Some of you may be old enough to remember a TV show from the '60's called "Lost in Space".  One of the characters was a whiny, sniveling coward named Dr. Zachary Smith.  And if you do an image search for Lost in Space, you'll see they wore silver space suits on the show.  I wonder if it's just a coincidence or if this was Ash's intentional wink to that show.  Either way, it makes me like this version even more.

I was watching Stargate and noticed another wink towards the sci-fi genre. There's a character by the name of Major Charles Kawalsky. Even though it's spelled different on the strigoi, I think it's another tribute...kinda cool
