Maketoys Giant: Set C with set B fixes

Do you love your new Hercules set? Can't get enough of FansProject's items? Upset that you bought a knock off when you thought you were getting an original? Use this forum to tell everyone your thoughts about unlicensed and knock off TF products.

That's a fantastic photo review! You must have had a really awesome day but I ask again:

thanks for the pics.
looking a lot smaller than I'd imagined, but it's nice to have seen the range of movement (he can stand on one leg!) and it looks like a quality toy. just those comparison pics with WFC megatron, and the deluxe classics Prime make me think that whilst he's not small, he's not that big.
assembling a Neo-G1/TF:TM cast. Please PM if you have (or know of) the following at a reasonable price: Classics or Henkei Astrotrain, Sunstreaker, Sideswipe, or 3rd Party iGear Ratchet and Ironhide.
Also looking for Universe Repugnus and Overbite, Frostbite and Longhorn and any Webdiver toys.

I opened set B this weekend and I can't see any reason for a replacement shoulder/cab area. It all seems so sturdy. The joints are tight but move really nicely and smoothly.

That's what I thought. If anything I would have thought "Crane" would have had replacements for his shoulders, as the ratchets on mine were so tight I was sure they'd break. Luckily after some careful manipulation they've loosened up enough that they don't require me to hold my breath.

tfsource is taking forever. The wait is painful.

Glad they are giving us all those replacement parts too. I haven't even tried to combine Set A and B yet, since it will be so much sweeter with all limbs.
As much as I defended Maketoys Giant before, I have to say this is the one TF in my collection where I am SUPER careful when handling/posing/transforming. The quality looks great but I feel its really fragile (i.e. Hooks hinged hip). I'm kinda scared to put him on my stand that is so high up :HALUC:
