At around the 5:00 mark. Glad they're doing it...interesting take, but I was expecting something waaay different. More of a classic look. Especially after the very classic looking Venom and Spider-Man busts. I think GG dropped the ball on this one, personally. Damn shame.

Man, I'd heard rumours of this a while ago, and was really excited. But after seeing it, really bummed out. I wish they'd have gone more of a classic look too.

Looks more horror than comicbook.....that 1/4 scale Punisher looks promising though.

Yeah, everything else looks awesome. Punisher, Venom and the other busts, especially. Toga Deadpool is a bit out there, but looks cool at least.

Exactly...looks like something out of The Thing x Salad Fingers.

Man this was the most requested piece from the polls I did. I too am let down. I was hoping for more of a 90's version. This looks like Carbage.

I dunno....I kinda like it.
It has an really creepy and "icky" vibe to it.
I can see why Carnage fans wouldn't like it so much, but it definitely has a unique and unusual dynamic going on considering it's just a small mini-bust.

I'm all for unique and unusual, but honestly to me this just kind of looks amateurish. Especially put next to the other busts that are so neatly done.

Definitely Carbage. xD

Ditto...I'm all for artistic interpretation, but this is overboard imo. It really would stick out like a sore thumb next to basically all the other busts they've put out. That includes the zombies. Guess we'll just have to wait and see if they make any changes, like change the whole thing.

Not just GG, either. What Bowen busts would this thing go with? Changes, here's hoping!

Well it certainly doesn't blend in too well with the other GG busts it's displayed with in the vid.

Looks like I found the inspiration for it...



Don't know who did it or where exactly it came from, but there you go. They changed the color of the teeth like they said in the video.

Looks like it was done by ArtDodge on DeviantArt. Titled "Total Carnage".
