I was born at a very young age. I plan on living forever. So far, so good.

    Would have been useful to see a Leviathan Crusader in the size comparison photo.

      Funny you should mention that I was reading the couple of articles up on here an none of them seem to put the two models side by side. It would be great to hear from someone who has both.

    • 4tonmantis

      I’d like to see it next to both a 28mm and 15mm scale Leviathan.. just for general purposes and what have you 😀

      • Soulfinger

        I’d like to see it next to a 2014 Chevy Camaro.

  • If you check out this link at the bottom of the thread, there is a side by side with the larger Leviathan:

    It is Frothers… so if you are easily offended by swearing, don’t click the link 🙂

      Cool, thanks!

      Thanks for the link, it’s very informative.

      So it confirms that the Knight is quite a bit smaller (which we knew since 4tonmantis analyzed the picture for us), but also quite a bit more detailed and more finely detailed. As I feared, the Leviathan really ends up being a blown up version of a much smaller model.

  • Gallant

    Yipes! That really is small. Regardless of what your girlfriends have told you, 6″ is never titanic.

  • It very much depends on what you are looking for. I am a big fan of the Leviathan mech but am drawn towards the Knight because… it’s a Knight and it looks cool.

    Value wise, I’d say that the Leviathan was better because it is bigger, poseable and has special joints that mean it stays in the same position that you pose it (rather than being all floppy).

    The thing that will always been down to taste is the style… and as much as I like the smooth panels and simplicity of the Leviathan, the Knight has a sense of ‘solidity’ that the Leviathan lacks.
