Yeah I'm not a fan of 'metallic' paint jobs. I want it to look like it belongs on my MP shelf.
Same here, I get the appeal of their metallic versions or just metallic version in general but they just don’t look right to me for some reason they just look weird/off and kinda cheap (which there not but that how it look to me for some reason) looking also stick out with other figures from different lines/companies
This could be a great one off piece, bu I still think it would make an amazing start for some MP IDW Dynobots. Even the style they chose was when he was with the team, which suggests they want to do all the guys from Maximum Dinobots. I'd buy all five; with the suggested release order of Grimlock, Swoop, Snarl, Slag, then Sludge; and event the Monsterbots if Planet X want's to walk that road.
He looks huge in this pic.
anyone got a picture of tortor standing with mp08? which, now that im thinking about it, wouldnt be a horrible stand in
Looks about right for an MP shelf.
As he should!

So would you consider MMC's tortor, mors and carnifax all mps? Since PX-cacus is around a similar height as tortor and mors, and a bit shorter than carnifax.
For my purposes? Yes. I know they are suppose to be CHUG, but when ypu start getting into 10 plus inches and its not a combiner or titan you pretty much can go either way when it comes to display.
And considering at 11" Cacus is a head taller than your standard MP Optimus/Mrgatron (9.5" to 10"), that works better for my MP shelf.
I wouldn't put Cacus on a CHUG shelf, but again you can do whatever you want .
If you wanna get really into the weeds I can go over the sunbow scale chart, and how cacus is a perfect match for MP.
Already have this on preorder and I'm glad I did. I like the big and menacing-looking face. I love that it can wag its tail and tilt its head like that.
Wonder why they made him so big? In the comics Grimlock is drawn to scale with Tarn, & this guy's a couple heads over MMC Kultur.
Planet X is not MMC.
Planet X's IDW line scales with standard MP scale, such as Generation Toy and GCreations IDW line. MMC Reformatted is more "Voyager CHUG" and scales better on its own or with certain mainline figures like T30 Springer and CW Ultra Magnus (I believe MMC has said before that they intentionally scaled Spartan off of T30 Springer and everything else went from there).
Of course, everyone is free to pair their figures however they want (like someone earlier on these forums said they choose to pair the MMC DJD with their MP figures, and that's their prerogative). But regardless, I don't believe that was the intention of the designers, and honestly something like Generation Toy or GCreations Optimus looks ridiculously huge compared to MMC MTMTE crew. Then again, I pair GCreations Fuuma with MMC Carnifex, and GCreations Rebel looks fine with both GT Optimus and MMC Calidus, so do what works best for you
Yeah you can mix and match especially with huge CHUG guys like MMC Overlord and turning them into just large MPs so to speak.
As I'm looking at the mtmte/ Lost Light comics grimlock is definitely a head taller than Helex. And mors is a couple heads over mmc kultur. So he's scaled correctly with the MMC mors figure as well as kultur.
So, I put a pre order on this.
Finger crossed, I hope this one will be magnificent
Their Star Saber and Deathsaurus were great. Hope their experience with those two projects were carried out on this.
One thing that bug me, in T-Rex mode, it seems golden cross thing was formed by robot mode "wing" and conjoined with small gold notched in robot mode chest right? In transformation video, this was not addressed, so I was very curious.
Because, I have experience with Fans Toys Grinder paint scrapping with those peculiar structure. I hope this one going to be okay.
Glad I put my preorder in early for this guy. The retail price shot up a extra $30. That's crazy. Does anyone know if he has die cast in him? I have their Deathsaurus and he has some diecast, I wonder if that carried over to this figure. They have similar transformations I noticed also.
Just got emailed from TCP that they will be raising my pre-order to $200. Sucks but I understand.
