Meet the COD: Black Ops Flight Suit and Woods! [Updated]

66 replies 1239 views Edited Nov 9, 2010

Hi folks! 

 

I don't know exactly how many of you decided to pre-order from GameStop (or EB Games) to get yourself one of those Call of Duty: Black Ops "Flight Suit" avatar costumes but mine just came in the email a little over an hour ago and I've been playing around with it for a little while. Famitsu gave us a picture of it a little while back, but just in case you want the "full 360" on it, here's a bunch of neat pictures for you:

 

From the front:

 

 

 

From the left side:

 

 

 

From the right side:

 

 

From the back:

 

 

 

Here's a few details that you might be interested in:

- This is a one piece outfit, you cannot "mix and match" the parts.

- That probably means the Hardened/Prestige edition costume is one piece too.

- The suit is shockingly men's only, that's right women do not get the flight suit. Holy hell how did Activision flub this?

 

All in all, I really like this suit. I'm glad I pre-ordered Black Ops at GameStop to get it, I like the quality and the "unique look" of it. It's a tad bulky in the stomach and kind of makes me look fat but then again, it's a flight suit and not generally meant to look "fashionable". The backpack was a bit of a surprise when I saw it, the only picture showed us the front so I didn't know that the suit had a built-in parachute!

 

It seems to be a winner with the crowds too, no less than 20 minutes of dancing in CP did I get half a dozen people asking me where I got it. 

 

EDIT: I don't really know why I got this early when it's supposed to be a Midnight thing. I've seen a couple of people walking around with it also over the past few hours.

 

 

 

Meet the COD: Black Ops Hardened/Prestige Edition Costume: Woods!

 

Front:

 

 

Left Side:

 

 

Right Side:

 

 

Back:

 

 

Face:

 

 

Just as the Flight Suit, the Woods outfit is one piece, male exclusive, and changes the avatar's face. Sorry to all the women, customizers, and people who enjoy looking like a Home character.

 

I sort of like this one but not as much as the Flight Suit. It's probably going to be rarer than the Flight Suit but it sort of puts a downer that we have to BE Woods. The face is wonderfully rendered but then again, it's the dude from Black Ops.

Son of a gun, so I should have my code tonight waiting and ready for redemption and strut my stuff in HOME which second of my ever favourite Schick GT 5 Racing Suit.  Good preview Mal...

The lack of a women's version is really the shocker here, the suit has no clearly defined "gender" to it in its look. I mean if I didn't tell you it was a men's costume you might have had to look for a bit to tell I was using a male avatar, but it's surprising that Activision kind of dropped the ball.

It also means that the Hardened/Prestige costume is probably male only too.

shocking however there is no female counterpart

Yeah, if there is a female version it would be pretty much like the Dead Space suit.  Tad bit slimmer, but still looks like a male version.  I was hoping for a female version because I might just have that extra code from my Prestige Edition to go around.

Can't say it makes a fashion statement but the lack of attention to women is a bad thing. The same thing happened with the Top Gun item.
