    Okay, I've seen a lot of KO's recently that are oversized or undersized - 2/3 size Predaking, 2/3 size Devastator, oversized Piranacon, oversized Sixshot, oversized Superion, etc. Does anyone know how the KO companies do this? Is there some technique where you can take a mold and make it larger? Do they get hold of a prototype that is oversized? Or is at as simple as scan it, increase the size, and having a 3-d printer make a prototype?

    I dunno,the 3d scanner sounds about right for the way that they would go about doing it.But I'm not real sure.

    I don't kow how KOs do it, but I sure wish Has/Tak-Tom would learn how. Just imagine a quality WST Superion and other gestaults in scale with G1 Metroplex?
