Yup. I might be in the minority, but I loved the previous Carnage.

I generally love the K Bros, but wasn't a fan of the Venom bust they did.

Wow this is an extremely good start / love it.
Some more Carnage as counter part against spidey and venom is good stuff !

I prefer my Carnage classic but weíll see how this turns out.



I think my issue with the previous 1/4 Carnages is theyíre all that red muscle fiber texture with black strands of goo on top of the muscles, where the original art made the black goo swirl in with the red, not look like itís a separate part of him. His whole body to me should be thick liquid, including the red parts. His tendrils are black and red mixed, not just black like SS and XM have made them. But like I said, Iím looking at Classic Carnage, the statues havenít been that.

His whole body to me should be thick liquid, including the red parts. His tendrils are black and red mixed, not just black like SS and XM have made them.

I think the original Koto Carnage (which I have and love) is the closest you'll get. Even that one, the black is raised slightly. I imagine you'll never get exactly what you're describing as comic-accurate, as that would be incredibly hard to engineer/paint. (Would be cool as hell to see them try a black and red swirl paint job. Probably wouldn't turn out like classic Carnage, more like a fan interpretation.)

I'm not a Storm fan, but I've followed the costume discussion over there, and I look at this similarly. Portraying this character in 2D, two-color artwork is an extreme limitation on original intent.

To portray a 3D sculpt of that 2D artwork would result in an incredibly cartoonish, action figure-like character, imo. Maybe if Bowen were still around. PCS' cel-shaded Transformers line also comes to mind as a step in that direction.

Not at all! I think it's fantastic. Still love mine. Only wish they would have added symbiote goo to the base.

Hated mine . His goo under the feet didn’t match the body as it was diff resin . Paint on building was one colour ???? He was sooooo small next to venom which I hate and the texture of his body was just bad imo. Those are my tastes I had no problem selling that and I’ll wait for a better one.
