    I have a hunch that MMC will not be doing that for quite a long time, unless Fans Hobby is willing to do a Metalic version of Double Evil after completing their version of Fire Guts Ginrai.

    Don't forget that we're still missing a Black Shadow for the Phase Sixers team.

    I don’t see MMC ever doing Black Shadow. G-Creation’s or PX is our only hope.

    I'll be selling my original off once I have the metallic in hand which should be very soon. If anyone is interested, feel free to PM me.

    Sorry, I should have put that question in blue text haha, I was just joking. I know MMC is hesitant to even attempt a reissue of the original Carnifex unfortunately, much less a metallic repaint. Besides, I don't believe MMC has ever released "enhanced" repaints of existing molds; they generally just repaint or remold a figure into different character to get the best "bang for their buck". NewAge and Magic Square are probably the kings of metallic repaints. Now that I have Fuuma in hand, I'd be interested in whether GCreation teases any other metallic repaints, though I'd be hard pressed to replace my FlamesToys IDW Optimus or Generation Toy Optimus. GCreation Optimus looks incredible but lacks the articulation I would prefer on a figure I'd probably NEVER transform.

    This looks fantastic! I am glad I gambled and sold off original. The color pallet here really pops! Congrats fellow collector. My copy is in transit & can't wait. I had the Fans Toys version a while back and it was the first FT where I thought it was a straight epic fail.

    My Darkblade came in to my stack at TFSource, still need to ship it out. I hope I have space for it, I think I might be underestimating his size too

    Thank you guys! Came to this thread and within a few min I saw everything to make me go buy one. Got Darkblade on the way from Bombusbee for $149 with free express shipping! So cool!

    Why are they hesitant to attempt to reissue Carnifex?

    Because they tried before and didn't get enough pre-orders or interest to make it worth being reissued for them.

    Got my metallic Fuuma in today. So far in my five minutes with him he seems amazing. Really really really tight though.

    Can't wait, mine will be here in the next couple days! Then dark Ultra Maxmas after that. I saw preorders just go up for Bluestreak at ShowZ and I've been undecided on Prowl and Smokescreen.

    I am pretty happy so far with all my idw bots from Gcreation. Hopefully, they will continue releasing the others they have teased long ago.

    From all I've read and seen I'm confident I will love both. These are my first G-creation purchases and the only negative thing I expect is the more complicated transformation of Maxmas but they both look great and appear to be highly posable

    Have anyone come across a video review for Dark Blade?

    Not specifically with Darkblade but there are a few of the regular white/blue Fuuma. Same thing so for review purposes color doesn't matter.

    My copy of Metal Fuuma just arrived. Here are some crappy cell phone pics right out of the box. First impressions, this guy is amazing. What a great rendition of Sixshot. All the joints are very, very tight, except his feet which you have to fiddle with a bit. The heels help a lot but you have to angle them just right. He looks amazing next to Fans Hobby Double Evil.

    My copy has finally arrived. Man such a amazing figure, the metallic paint is on point. Gotta say the feet does need a little bit moving around to get the right balance. Joints are fairly tight but overall, I really love the figure!
