My guess,this was done on purpose to make a joke about the ROTF movie devestator scene.
most likely the "nether regions kibble" on giant can be adjusted to not be in the nether regions area. the crane can most likely adjust to another non-nether region area on the giant toy.

Because some,like myself favor the more exact updatted homage & the more appropiate size scaled version. TFC Hercules loses on both accounts. TFC Hercules is too over sized in the individual voyager sized constructicons & supreme sized Devestator. TFC Hercules individual robot modes & devestator mode look less like the 1985 invididual constructicons/devestator than giant does.
Having a huge TFC Hercules devestator that is supreme sized might seem cool. but it's over sized & some prefer perfect size scaled TF toys. G-1 Combiners were not shown as supreme sized toys in the 1980's. the supreme size scale should only be reserved for planet formers or city formers.
the 1985 individual constructicons toys were basic or legends sized. the 1985 constructicons on the cartoon were shown as deluxe scale. as they were in similar scale to the average medium autobots like jazz,prowl,ironhide,wheeljack.
The TFC Hercules individual constructicons robot modes don't even try to mimic the 1985 individual constructicons robot modes.
At the very least Giant's individual constructicons are in proper deluxe size scale cartoon 1984-1986 media size scale. the giant devestator appears to be leader sized. which put's him around 9.5 to 10 inches tall. the original 1985 devestator toy was aroound 8 inches tall,so another 1.5 or 2 inches isn't that big of a addition.
Giant's individual constructicons robots modes do try their best to mimic the 1985 constructicons toy/cartoon designs.
Giant's devestator mode looks more like the 1985 Devesator toy/cartoon designs. and TFC Hercules looks less like the 1985 Devestator toy/cartoon designs.
I'm sick & tired of radical updates that look next to nothing like the original toy. I hate over sized or under-sized updated homage new molds.
