I don't believe that for a second. I believe that TFC saw what fans were doing with their figures as they were being released, so they collected the ideas into a single set.
Possibly, but they must have theorised that these sort of modifications would happen. I can't believe that the guys who designed Hercules walked into a room one day and came up with Hercules as we know him straight off the bat. They must have discussed whether or not to give him a more G1 head, or stand-alone forearms to allow the treads to fold up by the shoulders. Maybe even experimented with rough models. Surely that's all part of developing a product.
I don't have a problem with this set (certainly not to the extent joesaysso does) I just wish they'd included them from the start. Piece by piece with each figure. So it'd have cost a little more for each figure, but at least we could've saved on the cost of shipping another unit. I just know I'm going to spend more money on this and probably not use half of it.
