Man that things has been making the rounds! I'm pretty sure that's the same one that TFsource had at BotCon with the unpainted test shot legs, then he showed up in Canada when that guy did the video review. Looks good, look forward to completing this guy and moving on to the green version.

Was packing up my Transformers to prepare to sell our house and spent some time messing around with Bruticus-such a great figure. Was just thinking how great they'd look together-this just confirms it. Bring on green Giant I say!!!

They look so good together they should get a room.

I really want one of these but for an un official toy he is too expensive. Someone in Korea will probably make a bootleg version of this soon too.

Nice pictures, can't wait for the green set! Also ordered set C of the yellow version-wanted the last two because of their great bot modes.

People in North America are now receiving their sets and several picture reviews are now popping up. I can't wait to get my last two sets. ;)

Picking up the green set but also glad I picked up set C of the yellow figures. I wanted to display one set as individual bots and this review confirms I made the right choice.

I'm everso-slightly regretting getting Hercules now. I'm also regretting missing out on the yellow version of Giant. I really want to get the green version just so I've got him but I'm real short of dosh at the moment. The one feature that I really like about MakeToys' Constructicons is the locking/release connector ports. They look so much easier than trying to force the pieces together and apart like I had to do with TFC's offering.

I'm going to watch this guy's Hercules/Giant comparison video with great interest.

I'm happy with Herc, but Yellow Giant has tempted me a few times. I have no desire for the green version though.
