Well i went to my local TRU last night, hoping to see either waves 5 and 6 or just new 30th line all together. All they had was plenty of Jungle Vipers and 2 Alley Vipers and not much else and then i looked down and saw the Dreadnok Doom Cycle for $12.50 clearenced or onsale. So I do like the Dreadnoks but i only have Zartan and Monkey Wrench, i plan to get the rest, but not sure when, but what is everyone's view on the Doom Cycle? worth it or PASS on it?

Per the cycle, I wouldn't say it was a total fail. It's just like the old Dreadnok cycle to me without the crazy colors. But the figure makes the whole deal for me. A new nok, cool looking. Great tats, cool graphics on his back, etc.

The figure is awesome materiial for customs. If you don't like Noks its an easy pass.

but if you do then its the only way you will get this Nok. All my Noks have various types of bikes so I got it when it was clearanced. (I'm usually paying $5 for a hot wheels bike for each of my Noks anyways so the price on this bike evens out.)

Those Big Lots bikes are awesome for Noks. I picked up one with the american flag for my Cap.

It's a decent value at $12.50, if you break it out to $6-$7 for the fig and the balance on the bike.

I think it is a great peice and at $12.50 a very good deal IMO.

I picked it up at eBay for around 12 shipped and then found it at a Walmart on sale for $7.50. IMO, cool bike and nice figure addtion to the Dreadnok team at a great price.

Under $10 this is a great figure/vehicle. If you're talking $12.50 shipped (or with no shipping) it's not bad. I would see if you could buy one loose somewhere though.

Personally I can't stand the thing. I don't get it. Like... at all. I really do NOT understand the vehicle. HOWEVER, it looks nice next to Cold Slither Zarana. And a LOT of people seem very pleased with the vehicle so I can't argue that.

i really like this set, i was on the hunt for weeks up until its release, got one the day it hit the shelves. paid full retail and never regretted it. however it has hit the discount stores at $7.99 so check out ross 1st. i even picked up a second one at that price.

Get it. They were cheaper at Ross, but I don't think they are there anymore. The fig is cool w/o the bandana. The bike is ok, but fits well when your other noks are on their own bikes. See my sig.

This is actually the only Alpha vehicle I've ever paid full price for, and I didn't regret it one bit. The bike is kind of cool in a Dreadnok sort of way, and the figure is really great. My only complaint with the figure is that they molded his arms in black and then painted them skin tone, which would be fine, except that the joints have no paint at all, and it looks kind of crappy. Other then that though, he's a great addition to the 'Noks.

Laser Viper
09-14-2011, 12:37 PM
I know some of you said, its been hitting Ross stores, but wonder if this will be hitting TJ Maxx and Marshalls or even Ollies? The reason i mention this is because i think i saw a post where the Ice Cutter was found at either one of these stores, i'd rather wait and pick it up for $8.00 than $12.50!

CrimsonGuard
09-14-2011, 12:48 PM
it's a pretty nice addition to the 'nok' line-up, and will be that hard to find item in 10 years. The figure is a new mold which will make him rare like most of the past unique mold drivers. $12.50...I would spend that...just to have that guy with his swamp hopping brothers. Check your local Ross or Marshalls..you may score one at a cheaper price, but if not, pull the trigger and add him to your collection.

VideoViper
09-14-2011, 12:56 PM
The price is basically a bet. I held off at the $17-$20 mark. But when I found one at clearance (Walmart for $7.50) I had to get it. (They had been clearanced at $15 for ages.)

You can hold out for a better deal, but at this point I won't bet on it. ollies might get some, or maybe they sold through already. If you see a better deal later the driver comes with a mask that you can use to add to your ranks or just switch heads.

Didnt think much of it when i picked it up, but once I got it unboxed I pretty much feel in love with it. Its small but ridiculously badass and is currently the only joe item gracing the nightstand next to my bed.

The fgure is outstanding too, Black joints asside of course, but thats not even a biggie. I also love the hand cannon he comes with and The Nailgun is just the extra gravy on top of the rest!

krisk
09-14-2011, 02:40 PM
I have two of them...wish I could get a couple more and outfit the noks with the trikes,,just paint the trikes different colors and add different "tools" to em to fit each nok!

This makes me smile. I mean, they're a biker gang of mercenaries. It's not that big of a leap. :) And I'm not the biggest Marvel guy, but I believe it looks kinda similar to the bikes they rode early in the run, right?

Got it at Ross for the figure which was worth it for a new original Nok.

As for the Cycle I gave it to my youngest son. He loves it. It's far too large for a cycle in my book though.

The BIKE portion I'm fine with. Yay a bike.

But said bike has a big blue flame looking blade set that fans out on the back... to what end? The blades on the front... okay fine. They can stab um... things that somehow make it past the front wheel but not the handle bars. Okay. You get that one. But the rear tail blade things?

I just think the mechs and the cycle in general had no place in POC as it is.

I paid $5.08 for one on clearance at Super Target. I just wanted the figure. At regular price, it was an instant pass. At $5, it was great deal.

fwiw... Ollies in our area has been discounting the Joe vehicles to just $10. Not sure if the price difference is worth missing out. But maybe they've got a bunch where you've seen em at $12.50 ? Have yet to see the cycle or the ice cutter at Ollies, though.

my rebuttal... piney.(SOA)
also i have a close homey who has to be 500 lbs. more or less, and i always tell him he would be bad a$$ on a trike.
saw one at wally world for $9 yesterday, if i had extra cash i would have grabbed it, and i already have 2.

I picked it up...and so far its one of the few vehicles that comes out without any sticker application needed..

09-16-2011, 12:44 PM
It's not the worst design, but honestly I found that the "Action Attack" blade features just were a bit too much. In different colors, it would fit into a Power Rangers line. In the classic colors you see on the shelf, it's the sort of vehicle that I would strongly expect to be tied into a "Ghost Rider" movie themed toy line. Every time I saw on shelves, my feeling was just "meh".

As a standalone, the figure is very well done, and it's a new character no less, which is refreshing. Without the bandanna, one can see that he would not be out of place as a supporting character in "Sons of Anarchy". At clearance, it would be a pretty good deal, particularly if one wants the bike for custom fodder.

Laser Viper
09-16-2011, 09:32 PM
Well guys bad news stopped by TRU to pick up the Doom Cycle and it was $20! i feel that thing is not worth that, i could see $14 or less, but $20 + tax is too much! im sure they will hit TJ maxx and the rest around Christmas time or sooner!

I found mine at Walmart for $9; it wasn't an instant buy, but I did go back for it and am happy with it. Like it better than the PoC Ghost Hawk, which I didn't expect.

I normally customize everything but this I probably wont' touch (for now).
