Getting and this will be my biggest buy of the year. I'll be wiped out but it looks so gorgeous and the quality of the Yellow I have is so good I would regret it forever for not picking this up now.

Me too. =P~

And I'm pretty much done for this year's TF purchase after getting this. The drought this year is really bad but that saved me some money.

I have yellow Set C and am very pleased with them. The green set is my most anticipated purchase of the year. (MP Soundwave is a close second)

What does type 61 refer to?

People need to quit being butt hurt that the Bay movies are not G1. That's like saying you hate Transformers Prime because it's nothing like Armada.

I thought for a second that the Type 61 meant Giant would be coming with a limited edition tank. 8-}

I'm kinda of glad it got upped to July, I want to get it, but I need a week or two to bring the CC down to 0$ so it doesn't look so menacing.

I was going to do Hercules all over, but Seeing the differences I prefer Giant. And I'm biased, I had Hercules at one point, it looks to boxy, it's not as real, to fit in with MP and classics. Herc just doesn't fit with the others, IMO.

After seeing they are basically the same height, Giant sold me on my second try.

They've made the crane part removable, that's cool. I made mine removable so notHook doesn't have such a stupid arm but I think they've added weapon ports.

I fear not. Why would they make a joke head that isn't on the actual figure?

I have never seen the hook/crane detached in that way before, do you think that is official?

Yeah I hope that isn't the official head. It would still have to fit as a foot for Hook, and this one looks too big to do that.

If this was official I would think we would have seen some packaging by now too?

I'm thinking this is somehow some kind of fan custom.

If you look at it when the crane is stall attached you'll see a new joint above Hook's elbows that Yellow Giant doesn't have. In another picture you'll see what appear to be tabs where the crane attaches. These aren't on the original.

On further inspection it seems they've trimmed down part of the crane to make it fit the hand cos Yellow Giant can't hold it very well.
