TFC Designs New Hercules Rifle

Weapon: Neptune Sword
A friend Daimhoc has reported that a pictured surfaced on Weibo.com/tfctoys that depicts a Hercules (Devastator) rifle in prototype grey. The rifle appears to have some transforming or customizing options similar to the original guns released with each TFC Hercules team member. I am inclined to believe that this will integrate with the smaller handguns to allow for some serious firepower. Check out the image below!

Nice. If they're making addons, maybe they'll make a toon accurate head with the right amount of detailing.

Not bad. Not really needed IMO, but not bad at all.

With the rearranged the barrel, that pic of the gun on the bottom kinda looks like a leg/foot.

They should be sending that upgrade for free to all the buyers who had shelled out just over 600$ for this set anyways?

It wouldn't surprise me if this gun was part of an accessory set that also included an alternate face/head along with some other weapon or add-on.

They're going to need something cuz as it stands now it's a pass. Unless it's like $5 w/ free shipping. I mean, it looks cool enough, it's just not necessary.

Not sure I need it, but it looks nice.

What I would happily buy a spare set or two of the handguns that shipped with the six HerConstructicons. I wish they'd shipped duplicate pairs in purple with each member and passed on the translucent red versions....

As others have said, it's nice but not needed. Heck, I rather like the two combined rifles we got.
Not caring about scale since 1984. Just like Hasbro.

I would like to see a set of the guns that the figures come with but in black plastic with silver detailing. That would look a lot better than the purple and red clear guns.

It looks really good. But yeah, what's our incentive to spend MORE on Hercules?

Maybe there's a self-destruct program written into the figure that can only be disarmed by plugging this gun in. :KREMZEEK:

SIDE NOTE: Ooooooo! More smilies available on the right. Cheers.
