    Here is my review of the final retail you-can-finally-get-him-now Carnifex.



    Aside from my faffing about getting use to his fiddly shoulders I literally have not a single other negative thing to say about him, incredibly well made, incredibly gorgeous, worth every cent. Don't mess around and miss out on this guy, you want an overlord? this is the one you want! :D 

    Update: here is a part 2 to cover stuff I didn't in part 1

    That saturated raspberry has me worried that there will be a better recolor at some point.

    Is MMC planning another run of Spartan?

    Wish you did some editing. Looking good though, excellent posing potential, best hands I've seen on a figure thus far.

    If only he didn't have that grin, I'd be down for getting him. I understand that it's cool for evil characters to have a creepy smile, but if you can't switch the face out with a regular/serious one (which i prefer, it's what i'm used to- I'd like to think most of us are): then they're pretty much forcing you in a way, like, "We gave him a creepy smile- take it or leave it, we don't care."

    Well, maybe I don't want my robot constantly smiling...and I haven't seen a regular face option for this guy, so from what I can tell we're stuck with a smiley face. They should fix that...

    Ironically I did, a lot, I cut out soo much endless off screen fiddling and sighs and me being tired of doing dumb things etc lol. Probably could have trimmed more out but I felt showing at least a little of my frustration was key to demonstrating that my first time with him was difficult which goes hand in hand with assessing my initial experience overall.

    But yeah also doesn't help I spent a while not realizing my camera had decided to stay lower than expected so the angle sucked for a bit too. Thought about scrapping the whole thing and starting over but I really wanted the review up asap. I've already contemplated making it a part 1 and following up with a part 2 to cover some things I didn't like his secret base mode, the super jet, etc.

    Is there any way to store the swords in bot mode other than in his hands?

    They peg on the same tabs you use in alt mode if you want them on his shield. But no theirs nowhere else.

    I ordered from PSX, he was $185 US. I dunno how much the price varies from seller to seller but as far as almost 200 dollar figures go I really don't think theirs ever been a better one.

    My review finally up. I did mess up some minor parts of the transformation so I'll make an update later. For instance the head antenna should always be facing the white side of the shield in the alt modes (e.g., facing out towards chest in alt and combined alt modes; facing towards the backpack for base mode).
