Which one should I get TFC Hercules or Maketoys Giant

I say you get the green one, but if you want a yellow one, definitely go with Giant and if you want a white one, definitely go with Hercules :P.

Seriously, it's really a matter of taste, scale and cost. Giant costs less, they both look quite different and they scale very differently in all modes.

If you want something to scale evenly with the FP Bruticus, go with Giant. If you want something bigger/bulkier looking, go with Hercules.

Giants fun!!!!!!!......hands down. if you like to play with your bots and not let them just be glorified expensive plastic statues that would be my opinion(nothing wrong with just displaying though, there dashing and it's always a conversation starter for most people that see them for some reason)

tfc combiners(so far) "seem" like they would have weight/stability issues from the sheer size.
I get blazed and just have a field day with giant though, I really don't think that would have been the case if I went the TFC route on my Devy.

but remember! it's what's going to suit you the best, I look for fun and value...what do you look for?

I own Hercules and love it. That said, unless you want the bigger one Giant might be what you want. Hercules really needs the rage set add on to look his best. Without it his shoulders look odd. I have only seen pics of Giant but he looks just fine in my opinion.

Herc has no stability issues what so ever, and he is a heap of fun to transform and play with in all modes.

I've never understood why people think his shoulders look odd to be honest. I'm the opposite, I think he looks weird with the rage upgrade :D

I only own Giant, so my suggestion is a bit biased in that regard. I keep him boxed about 90% of the time, and really like the setup he came in for the giftset. It's a great display piece but a bit less fun to play with, and while I like the scale better than Herc, I was more motivated by price than anything else.

If you can look at the Devy you have and smile, then you have made the right choice ;)

Hey thanks everyone for your opinions. I ended up pre ordering Green Giant from BBTS should be released sometime this month. Hey maybe eventually Ill get Hercules too, but I have way to many pre orders coming out in the next 5 months. Were talking about over $1900.00 in pre orders not including Green Giant!!
I prefer quality over quantity, I have the unique collection of Optimus Primes/Convoys!
