Plus, each figure's unique equipment seems quite small.

I've seen this number thrown around a couple times and I hope it comes to be as I think I could swing for both at this price, but I'm not holding my breath.

I was looking at this on my cellphone earlier and I was going to complain about a number of things, the trailers, the visible combiner kibble, the small-ish head.
But honestly, seeing it now on a big screen. Who gives a crap? This looks amazing! I love how different and full of personality each separate bot looks. And the combined mode looks totally badass as well. This will look amazing on my classics shelf alongside Bruticus, facing off (unfairly) against Superion.
I complain about price and being broke all the time, but I just have to make it work. I've done so with FP in the past, I need to continue with Maketoys.

long haul looks like a fantastic update. i don't see the problem here. he looks a little different but as others mention: these are homages not exact remakes. plus they'd probably get their asses sued if they were.
giant gets the win for me if not just for affordability alone. i'm not rich and with my wages i'm not that dedicated to transformers to get hercules. 'nuff said.

I wouldn't say TFC's Constructicons look nothing like the originals. It's pretty obvious who they are meant to be. With the exception of Mixmaster and Hook (which both look superb, minus the abundance of head on Hook), I'd say MakeToy's Constructicons are no more G1 accurate than TFC's...................................I can't see any reason why one set of 3rd party Constructicons would be better than the other (except for the fact that we've actually got orders for Hercules ) I think it simply comes down to personal preference and available funds. Really wish I could get both.
