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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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:

Now realizing how f***ing blind I am, seeing as I did not see that huge f***ing gap in his chest before. I'm seriously bashing my head against the wall over this. Ever since I saw devastator without the chest piece I've understood just how much I hate that ugly thing.
Image
Edit: I'll prefer to get rid of it as soon as I get it now, it's a limited run so the $$$ make me want to get rid of it anyway... or maybe not. I suppose there is a possibility that the chest piece separates from whatever fills that hole, in which case I may not be quite as pissed, but it still won't look right... I guess. I'm really split all of a sudden.

In short the Insecticons got shot. Anyway, the guy did say the quality is better than TFC... I think. So there's something that makes it sound better. He also likes yellow apparently... which I can totally agree with!

Correct me if Im wrong, but they said the green version was the limited release only available in a box set. I want the yellow version that everyone is passing on to wait for the green version. And Hercules is better. Take it from somebody who owns him. ;)

Nope. It's the other way around. If you'd check you'd see they're all sold out at BBTS actually. Though the green version will be released in a single package for whatever reason.
TFsource Description wrote:Note the yellow release is available in only very limited quantities and there will be no additional production runs on this version of these figures.


Also, Hercules being better is purely an opinion, and as you are a person who does not have Giant I do not consider this opinion as even close to definitive. All of the Maketoys Giant figures have more streamlined robot modes, complete with double jointed arms, less clunky legs and an aesthetic that's more in line with Fansprojects Crossfire sets, the figures themselves simply seem superior to me in every way (except for the lack a light-piping). The combined mode on both of them is a little more so-so for me. I like the fact that the Hercules cleans up the arms by using the treads as a forearm, but it's still nothing like the IDW style and it hinders the legs of the individual figures. I also like the proportions of the Giant's legs better, the Hercules' combined mode just looks all shins. Actually the more I look at it, the more the Hercules looks sort of "lanky", where as the Giant is more "beef". Maketoys' Giant may be smaller but it looks like it has just as much presence as TFC's Hercules.

Ultimately I feel it all boils down to a "who's d*** is bigger" type mentality, which the Hercules obviously wins, but remember "size isn't everything". 8)

Edit: Well then again there's always that chest piece thing, but I'm guessing I'd be the only one complaining. I'll probably get over it...

I own Hercules and it is fantastic, my biggest grip is that due to the crane arm he cannot stand close to a wall which means that in order for him to stand on my number 1 display shelf he has the crane arm mounted on his right arm as some sort of weapon.

I wasn't expecting to like Giant so much but I think the overall level of realism on the vehicles is higher than Hercules and the individual bots do look better but who would keep them like that? I like the yellow. I agree about the tiny head but maybe that could be fixed later???

Hmmm, tempted.

I'm loving this guy! Sure he's got a hole in his chest, but that's where the chest shield goes so I'm not complaining. My only uncertainty is where to put this big guy. I don't have a specific G2 section, as my collection is more of an amalgamation, so I'm currently thinking either using him as Classics Landfill or classics Six-Builder.

Because of all the stuff on this shoulders and all the sort-of-kibble on this upper arms and chest, unless you remove his head, you will never get a clear shot. If this guy were real he wouldn't last one battle because he wouldn't be able to see squat...his line of sight would be almost like tunnel-vision.

He could be the Constructicons when they were Autobots (or at least before Megatron brainwashed 'em). Sure, the cartoon didn't give them different colors for that time, but they didn't give Skyfire Decepticons colors either (which eHobby did for the Henkei release).

I still think Hercules looks better but when it comes to Mixmaster the sculpting in truckmode looks much better when it comes to the Giant figure. The cab is much more realistic, don't like the flat front of the Hercules Mixmaster cab.

You do realize that the picture from the fan review we're using for the story thumbnail image is of only set 1 and 2 combined, right. If you look at the image of the finished yellow Giant set from Maketoys, the standard wing-style chest piece is clearly there and appears to completely cover any holes or gaps seen in the reivew image. It's presumably going to come with set 3 that includes Scrapper who usually comes with that part.

No need to go selling these on EBay yet.

Quite frankly I don't mind it as much, but my brother tends to be a lot nit-pickier than I. I'm still on the fence about re-selling it either way just because it's the limited release version, and not at all because of the gap. Ultimately depends on how well the final product is in hand, as well as how it compares to the green set once it's released.

Actually I may have just not phrased it very well, I've always been s*** at language arts. He may have thought I hate the devastator that doesn't have the chest piece. :-?

Anyway. Yes, I hate the chest piece on the original G1 Devastator. If you've ever payed attention to my posts you will know that this is most definitely not because I am a newer fan or anything. I love G1, I just don't worship it. I do worship BOLD fonts though...

So if anyone makes a chest filling block for this on Shapeways I'd probably buy it, yellow Devastator or otherwise.

Tell him to take the Legos out of his ears. You hear better then, and you can use it to stuff in the toy's chest. :HEADHURTS:

lack of field of vision is less important when you've half a dozen buddies who become jets who can swarm around your back and shoulders, and when you're so big that no-one can really sneak up behind you. Devastator never really struck me as the sort to do twirling moves anyway. Tunnel-vision probably suits him, and his commander, quite well.

that said...he does have some mighty big shoulders, maybe a 3rd party will develop a set of pouches to be added on to him for full Liefeld effect?

Set B is now available via BBTS. TFSource will have their stock in by this Friday.


Regarding the Chest Shield talk, the shield is part of Set C.

Mine's in my Pile of Loot right now! I'm waiting for HoS Shockwave to arrive before shipping though. The wait is killing me.
