Does this peg issue affect anything serious ? Or is it just something petty that nobody will notice ?

The issue is that the arm will only be able to peg on one side, making the arm unstable.


Anyway, here's a video review...

How do you tag a youku video anyway?

Hopefully, that was just a dud. If not, TFC seems to be pretty good at fixing QC issues. They might send the replacement parts to the dealers. I wouldnt worry about TFC. They want to make sure people stay on board for Superion.

I wish I knew how to paste a youtube video to the site like the news crew do. The control pannel never works. I still dont even know how people "quote" only part of someones comment. I wish they would create a tutorial for that HTML stuff.

Few things I noticed...

-the sculpting is different on the lower portion of the head than any other sculpting we've seen...

-the visors will swap between faces

-the faces can be swapped between heads

-the new visor is thicker...maybe to help stop breakages

-in person the set looks a lot better...

For fun :D

According to TFC's facebook page, there won't be any additional add-ons for Hercules...

@njb902: Are you referring to my post about the youku video link? I've been able to link youtube videos, but I'm not sure about the format for the youku ones. And yes, I've looked under the BBcode listing. Unless I missed it.

Motto: "The sins of your father do not have to be your burden."
Weapon: Sniper Rifle
I just got mine yesterday. In the end, I'm glad to have the poster, the card, and a thicker visor.

It looks nice as a part of Hercules, but it doesn't integrate well into the individual robots. Which, is a personal preference, but is a HUGE deal to me. Also, I love the way the tread arms are... Well... Arms.
Here is what I'm looking for:

Scout:
Windcharger (RTS), Dune Runner (HFTD), Beachcomber (ROTF), Brakedown (ROTF), Oil Pan (ROTF), Breacher (HFTD), Crankstart (HFTD), Sky Stalker (ROTF)

Deluxe:
Fallback (RTS), Mindstorm (RTS), Vehicon (FE), Cliffjumper (FE), Ratchet (B.H.), Dreadwing (B.H.), Arcee (B.H.), Knock Out (B.H.), Shadow Strike Bumblebee (B.H.), Prowl (B.H.)

Voyager:
Mindwipe (ROTF), Highbrow (HFTD), Strafe (RTS), Deep Dive (RTS)

@Daimchoc....
That custom paint app you put on herc is AWESOME...did you do that yourself?

I love the "dirty" look you put on all the bots...makes them look alot more realistic as construction vehicles...

So the ball joint that holds my Herc's head was too tight and I ended up breaking the black piece where the ball joint goes #-o
I glued it back in with plastic welder and it seems to be holding alright, but it stills bothers me to no end.
Just a heads up.

And there you have it, the 7th Aerialbot for Uranus :P!

I have the upgrade set, but the only thing I've used so far are the shoulder extensions. I found that turning them so that the highest point is actually pointed to the front, it adds some nice width to his arms without them looking so odd (having the extensions go up like they are by default looks strange to me without using the replacement forearms which I don't want to use cuz I loves me some tread forearms). No visible screws that way either, plus there's a bit of silver paint detailing on the top of them.

I have been waiting to order mine since I saw the post about the messed up molding causing the shoulder joint piece to have a peg in the wrong spot, making the joint unstable and basically unusable.

Can anyone verify this problem has been corrected on current runs? really want to get this for my Herc but not at the cost of a known busted product.
