No more than on the original Devy. Quite frankly I think it makes him look more monstrous than Hercules, and I love that!Rated X wrote:I hope the yellow version goes on sale when the green one comes out. I want it for my G2 stuff. Hercules is still better though.
You expect the limited release version to go on sale?
Correct me if I'm wrong, but they said the green version was the limited release only available in a box set. I want the yellow version that everyone is passing on to wait for the green version. And Hercules is better. Take it from somebody who owns him.
Nope. It's the other way around. If you'd check you'd see they're all sold out at BBTS actually. Though the green version will be released in a single package for whatever reason.

Also, Hercules being better is purely an opinion, and as you are a person who does not have Giant I do not consider this opinion as even close to definitive. All of the Maketoys Giant figures have more streamlined robot modes, complete with double jointed arms, less clunky legs and an aesthetic that's more in line with Fansprojects Crossfire sets, the figures themselves simply seem superior to me in every way (except for the lack a light-piping). The combined mode on both of them is a little more so-so for me. I like the fact that the Hercules cleans up the arms by using the treads as a forearm, but it's still nothing like the IDW style and it hinders the legs of the individual figures. I also like the proportions of the Giant's legs better, the Hercules' combined mode just looks all shins. Actually the more I look at it, the more the Hercules looks sort of "lanky", where as the Giant is more "beef". Maketoys' Giant may be smaller but it looks like it has just as much presence as TFC's Hercules.
Ultimately I feel it all boils down to a "who's d*** is bigger" type mentality, which the Hercules obviously wins, but remember "size isn't everything".
Edit: Well then again there's always that chest piece thing, but I'm guessing I'd be the only one complaining. I'll probably get over it...
