The Real question is, will someone find a stand that will be able to support Uranos weight in flight mode?

I bet there will at least be..

LED head replacement.
Chest shield
G1 accurate gun.

TFC "Corrected" Concorde figure.

Somehow... I fully expected something like this.

No offense to any TFC supporters, but this is a big reason why I shy away from their products.

Can someone do a pictorial review of this fix ? One that shows the gears and shows the pannels for more than a split second ? I remember having to take apart Heavy Labor to grease the hips. It was a little intimadating. The video kind of helps, but he doesnt show the gears. And he flashes where you pry off the plastic pieces to reveal the screws so quickly. I dont have the figure in hand yet but I want to be prepared when I ship my pile of loot. Thanks in advance for anybody who can help.

Seriously? One of their figures needs lube? God damn it, TFC.

Just another reason for me to stick with FP upgraded RotF Superion, I guess.

I dunno. It's just not blowing me away like I thought it would or indeed how Hercules did. The chest area looks very plain and uninteresting compared to the arms and legs.

I agree with this too. I was excited for Herc as I didn't have that neo-classics Devestator. With Superion, I already have the FP add-on. I would have rather seen something that didn't exist yet, like Menasor, Predaking, Computron or Defensor.

I know there are a few that don't like the head and chest off Uranos. As far as the head goes, that's no different than many others and a replacement will become available at some point.

The chest is another matter, but I like it. I've been comparing G1 Silverbolt and Superion to the TFC version and like how they are "evolving" him.

G1 Silverbolt with his plain, boring chest.
Image

G1 Superion.
Image

I like how TFC Silverbolt uses a G1 Superion inspired chest, it really works.
Image

Then Uranos has an all new (modern?) chest that clearly takes its cues from Superion. For me it just works, but I have liked the look of TFC Silverbolt's gestalt mode from the start.

Then there is this image that shows the chest transformed slightly differently suggesting that the other images have him miss-transformed.
Image
The difference is so minor that anyone who doesn't like the look still won't, but just thought I'd mention it.
Image

Monkey arms for the win!

i'm not complaining about anything, i think this set of figures just looks fantastic. maybe there might be some problems with the hips, but if it's really serious then i wouldn't be surprised if they start throwing replacement parts in without extra charge.
since all the limb figures are pretty much the same in their basic transformation, they've got ample opportunity to perfect them

I was already decided against another $500ish gestalt. That torso figure just strengthens my resolve. something better could have been done there. Even if it involved parts forming. All combiners utilize it. It would have only helped here.

I'm in the same boat as you. I love Hercules, and I know TFC will support their products when there's some fault. But I sure would love to purchase the set once all flaws are known and MAYBE get a package deal for all 5.

Now that is just bad ass !!!

How can anybody even still talk about FP Aerial Appendage set being better than this ??? And Im not talking s**t because I already own the FP set and I still want this bad boy !!!

My solution for the FP set: Get the energon versions of the Hasbro mold and make it a new character. He will no longer G1 Superion on my classics shelf.

Because each one of these guys costs as much as the FP set, and FP Superion scales with FP Bruticus and MT Giant better than Uranos. I like these guys, but it's way too much money for me to plop down.

What he said. I just do not like the scale that TFC is doing. It's too pricey and not my style at all.

I'll spend the 550ish on something else.

I never liked the FP version of Superion but this guy is going to be too big for my shelf. Love the details for these particular guys.

Scale is a losing battle with 3rd party combiners. Im going all G1 for my classics shelf. (cartoon G1)

You gotta admit that the various 3rd party companies are kind of in sync with actual alt mode scale...

Construction vechicles (TFC)- huge
Jet fighters (TFC)- huge
Combat vechicles (FP) - mid sized
Stunticon cars (FP)- small
Beasts (MMC predacons) - Huge

Besides the Maketoy Giant indivdual robot modes suck and the FP Superion individual robot modes are well...Hasbroish !!!

That group shot is the money maker and should have been released a couple of months ago. My aerial appendage team will be rechristened from Superion to Sixwing (technically five wing). Compared to these guys they could be micromaster sized. I will have a giant Superion on my shelf soon.
