You also have to consider where the head is on either figure. To me Giant seems smaller than he is because his head is in a different position than Herc's - lower in his body.

But it's true that people overreacted to the size of Structor in arm mode and figured he'd be bigger than Unicron. He isn't; his arms are just longer, gorilla type arms. He does, however, tower over FP-enhansed Bruticus (minus the two guns on his back), and is taller than MP Megatron. So he's not small.

is there anywhere that has a boxing/MMA style "tale of the tape" comparing the Hercules and Giant individual bots and combined modes, in regards size, POA and accessories? I've yet to bite on either set (was holding out for Giant in green before deciding, continuing releases of the TFC set with presumably sorted QC issues make me consider that a viable option now) and would like to compare them all with pure numbers, as well as proper looks at each's aesthetics.
assembling a Neo-G1/TF:TM cast. Please PM if you have (or know of) the following at a reasonable price: Classics or Henkei Astrotrain, Ramjet, Sunstreaker, Sideswipe, Blurr, or 3rd Party Motobot Arcee, iGear Ratchet and Ironhide.
Also looking for Universe Repugnus and Overbite, Frostbite and Longhorn and any Webdiver toys.

Giant is not widely available yet for consumers/collectors. The ones that have been shown are either prototypes or sets for select reviewers. Wait till most everybody has the completed set.

Both look pretty awesome in combined mode. I do prefer the individual modes of most of TFC's bots to Maketoys. Happy about my HERC purchase and looking forward to additional sets for individual robot and vehicle modes on the shelf.
