    I only feel idw overlord too.. yet to watch TF God force(whats it called?) But i think the upgrade kit would have appealed to me otherwise

    Upgrade parts are nice and the price is relatively reasonable.

    Sadly, I don't think I will take it. G1 Face is too blant (sorry, maybe because he is a transector), Giga and Mega... well I have no attachment to them.

    But the those gun turrets are nice! I wonder if those six can be attached in tank mode or robot mode and will it hamper the transformation or it is for partsforming too?

    Anyway, G1 Folks can rejoice now. Carnifex can become G1 enough to interact with MP shelf. :) 

    Suggestion: If MMC wants to make another upgrade parts, why don't try a chainsaw? A gigantic one, please. :D

    Nothing to report about that honestly, and believe me I asked lol. All I can tell you is its still very heavily under development. Maybe it'll get a big reveal this year, maybe not.

    Hi all. Just today I finally joined the Carnifex club. I love this figure. I found transformation to be just fine as long as you have good lighting and take your time. Fortunately I had prewatched Wotafa and LazyAza's videos regarding the shoulders and didn't have TOO much trouble with them. Now, what I DID do wrong was fold the upper legs into the lower legs on one side and it wasn't quite lined up. It didn't take much pressure to completely snap off the outer upper thigh armor plate. Popped right off. Onto the floor. I heard that terrible clank of plastic clatter that I wasn't expecting. With a cold sweat, I inspected both the newly separated piece and the leg. Looked to me like it was only held on by a few dabs of glue. I have it superglued and drying right now, but thought I'd take a minute to share my experience and see if anyone else has had the same thing happen.

    TL,DR - Bought Carnifex, love it, broke it, fixing it now, still love it.

    Think this has happened to a few people. Should be no problem.

    Welcome to the club!

    Yea just try not to pry on those tabs when pulling the thighs out. I usually reach in and pull them out by the thigh socket.

    It will be interesting if someone makes their combiner. I know, it is not lore friendly but imagine how if they really combine. Overlord vs Overlord-buster? :p

    Just got this set. is it just me or is the instruction manual missing some information? Like how the gun works in bot mode and forming the base mode?

    Watch Wotafa's review on youtube, the instructions are entirely useless. Once you really get the transformation, it's easy.

    Nothing in the instructions covers the base mode because it was more or less a secret bonus mode for people to discover. Isn't too tricky to figure out though just gotta put the shield on the jet backwards, plug the canons little hinged bit to his butt and slot the swords on to the out stretched wing assemblies with the legs sitting beside them unfolded.

    Mine arrived today, and I was rather surprised at the size of his box!! I have to wait until I'm home to open him up, but it was even bigger than UW Computron's box which arrived this morning as well!

    I'm thinking tonight will be a lot of fun. :D
