I pre-ordered a yellow Giant while the price is right at TF Source. I saw a video review for the yellow version of Giant that included new parts for "fixes" including a new head. Do you know if this re-stock will include the removable crane on Hook like the green version ? Out of all my complaints about Giant, that crane arm is #1. Also, how is the application of the "MTC" logos ? Tempo or decal ? If decal, are they applied straight or all crooked. Im going with reprolabels for sure but have not decided whether or not to remove the MTC logos for values sake...


Yellow Giant has tampographs, they look fine. Regarding any "fixes" for the yellow version, those who ordered the 3 sets when they originally came out received "bonus" pieces with the 2nd or 3rd set to correct certain issues. However, Green Giant had the removable crane feature and I don't believe MakeToys will issue a mod for the yellow version. Honestly, the restock some providers are getting of yellow must've been in a warehouse somewhere - I don't believe MakeToys went back to the factory to crank out more as they were meant to be limited.

Thanks. Is there anything fragile I should be aware of when transforming ?

I've left him in combined mode for months, so it's hard to remember. However, the front piece of Dump Truck (with the headlights) was one of the replacement pieces but I was just careful in rotating it. Also, never move the Devastator head until Mobile Crane is folded together - do not attempt to move it while MC is straight.

With everything else coming out, I'm glad I passed on this. Maybe if it goes on sale, but not before.
