    I used to loath transforming Carnifex because I could never get the process down without watching videos and fumbling around a lot. I picked him up for the first time in ages last weekend and I experienced a moment of clarity wherein I finally understood his transformation. He's a great figure. I wish more people had the opportunity to own him. And his face is g o r g e o u s.

    There wasn't much demand for the re-release. Probably because of the official and Fans Hobby toys. Plus most of the people who wanted Carnfiex have it by now.

    I still want to do it, so probably best to keep it close to the chest for now. :lol  It's something that does not have much of a chance to be done by someone else though.

    The last few MMC releases (DJD, Chromedome) and the next few (Getaway, Rong) are really igniting my need for Overlord. Just speculation on my part, but the demand is probably now there. I've seen lots of desire for him lately compared to when the last almost reissue didn't make the cut. People are looking for some happiness during this pandemic. Personally I have more frivolous spending money since I don't get out to spend it on activities so $200+ is easier to let go of compared to a year ago.

    Please push for that star saber and Dai Atlas. I've been waiting for MMC's Dai Atlas, didn't realize it was a canceled project. All other Dai Atlus's have been doo doo so far.

    Now I know what the Star Saber concept entails I am VERY hopeful it actually happens

    Couldn't you get a Pyro off the Dicamus mold? Slap that together with Siege Rotorstorm--or get a Rotorstorm off the Turben mold, just a bit shrunk-down

    LOL - yup, during the pandemic I got into Legends scale, got into Macross HM-R line, Robotech 1/12 line, and now MMC IDW stuff. Im pretty much addicted to toys instead of saving my pandemic savings.

    Ironically enough, I think Pexus could actually be a better fit for Pyro. Would definitely fit size-wise (Pexus is around 7.8-.9 inches, T30 Springer, for comparison, is at about 7 flat) at least.

    As for Rotorstorm, Turben definitely seems to big, haha. Good thing that full 3D printed custom exists, though. That seems to be as good as it gets. Only downside for me is the alt-mode, which I personally think is topped by @Printformers' conversion kit based on T30 Whirl.

    I haven't had that moment of clarity yet, his backpack and shoulders just feel so counterintuitive.

    That said I want to take a minute and praise how durable that bastard is. He's suffered 2 shelf dives onto tile and only has a broken antenna.

    I'll second that sentiment. I had a weak grip on the torso when I was pulling his leg off and the whole upper body shot to the uncarpeted floor, yet he didn't have a scratch on him.

    I want that 3D printed one, but no access to said 3D printer. Wish I could get it off Shapeways

    I was never given the option to get Carnifex and every time I see him I just get mad and jealous bc I'll never have him.

    same...I am not paying the aftermarket price on him...people are ridiculous on his price and the add on kit now. Every once in a while I see him under $300 with the kit which I would do...but usually am broke when it does. Like now and see the tfcon blue azalea come up on auction and I can't bid on her.
