    Supposedly Carnifex with Diecast, however I should point out they simply released stock photos of the real Carnifex in grey scale with their logos smacked on, so take with a chunk of salt.

    Looks pretty good if legit. Kind of crazy it's already being ko'd so soon after release

    Does it need diecast? The only things that look like metal are the swords

    The FansToys crowd would not touch anything without a diecast.

    If they upscaled this Carnifex I would sell my official one in a heartbeat. I want Carnifex CW Devy sized

    No reason for diecast. Also smacks of the same type of trolling that was supposed to be making the OS maketoys metroplex and grapple kos.

    Well, from the looks of things they just used the stock photos of Carnifex and made them grayscale and put their logo on them. Being fake seems pretty likely since this is a company on one had heard of, with no web site.

    I am still confused. Is MMC's IDW MTME line MP or CHUG scale?

    [​IMG]

    I thought Carnifex is MP scale. Which would mean the GCreation IDW MP scale Sixshot should scale better with it than MMC/Clone Droid's leader size one.

    Bummer, wonder if it's really fake, or just because they aren't that far along the KO process but wanted to show something ... actually that sounds like I'm just being gullable >_>

    The Reformatted line is roughly Classics scaled, but usually on the large end of that. However, at this point, it mostly just scales to itself.

    I would say that both Carnifex and Hexatron scale very well with my mixed collection of CW, CHUG, and Energon/Cybertron figures.

    Though I think Carnifex is so large because the original toy was actually even larger. And because MMC just wanted it to be big and intimidating.

    I really liked how Carnifex is lighter than MP Ultra Magnus but still feeling solid. Diecast is not necessary.

    Isn't this the same people that are doing the KO Gravity Builder? If so the problem won't be that it's fake, the problem will be that we're talking less Weijang and more Jinbao.

    Yes, but At 280 Canadian dollars at the time of release, nope, that was not possible for me.
