Unlike TFC Toys, who gave us updates at almost every stage of their Hercules project, third-party toy maker MakeToys has remained relatively quiet through the development and release of their Devastator homage, Giant. However, today was have a trio of updates.

Frist, an ACToys member has received the next two-pack in the yellow Giant series: Set B Mobile Crane and Dump Truck. We have some in-package and vehicle shots. This is a good indication these will be arriving at online retailers soon.

Next we have some updates from Maketoys themselves. We see the last two yellow Giant set of Wheel Loader and Mixer in color, a group shot of all six members, and the fully combined yellow Giant.

Lastly, we go back to ACToys for a look at the upcoming green version of Bulldozer. A box set of all six members in green is scheduled for later this year.

How big is the Giant figure?

The Hercules figure looks amazing but I love the individual robots in this set.

It's about as tall as the Crossfire upgraded Bruticus but much... bigger.

Yes! Sounds like they should be arriving at BBTS soon enough, and then into my hands.

Brilliant! Actually having a bit of remorse about passing in the yellow-they look great !

Bring on more images of the green version and the preorder for it!

Here's something to keep the masses from tearing themselves apart to see the green combined mode

I like how they mistransformed Bonecrusher to make it look like theirs.

As soon as they get the green one out there I'll buy it. Though I have to say, the yellow doesn't look half bad.

Oh!!! So this one is a totally different mold! Wow. I had no idea these 2 Not-Devastator toys were actually from 2 seperate manufacturers. I just assumed that Giant was a recolour of Hercules. This is really amazing. :-B

The body build looks good, but I just don't like how it has virtually no visible head in those pictures. Tiny head fail. I might get it on clearance, but not at full price.

Everything above the waist looks like a cluttered mess.

Assuming the photo of green Bulldozer is taken with the same camera settings as the official photos of the yellow team, then that's a seriously dull looking green. Disappointingly so.

Also, the way Mobile Crane and Mixer are significantly taller than the rest of the team really spoils the group shot in my opinion. I seriously love these designs and given a modicum of customizing skill I'd happily turn these into and modified RiD Build Team.

Looks like the green will be the same as the G1 figure. I am quite pleased with that. Hope the green set will include the drills for Scavenger and Bonecrusher.

Love the G1 green. Nice departure from the color on Hercules.

If this is the stuff they put together for the Constructicons I can't wait to see their Dinobot team set! Bring on the awesomeness :BOT:

Just amazing. The yellow looks better than the green and I'm glad I went with it. Bonecrusher and Scavenger just arrived today, and I can't wait to get the rest. All the complaints I've heard so far about the group shot and above the waist are actually pros for me. I love the variation so that they don't all look boringly alike (with the size and visor colours). The complexity of the gestalt mode only adds to the industrial presence of this behemoth. I also love how Long Haul seems to have turning front wheels. :CON:

I have been anxiously awaiting the second part of this set ever since I picked up Not-Scavenger and Not-Bonecrusher. I love the uniqueness of the yellow as opposed to the green, there's enough green Devastators out there already! At least with the yellow deco you can say they're transforming Tonka Trucks! So excited! :KREMZEEK:
