TFC Toys have released new images of their two remaining unreleased Hercules figures, Neck Breaker and Mad Blender. Though not stated as such, these do appear to be official images. They've highlighted that both figures have attach points for clip style weapons, we get a shot Neck Breaker (who comes with the optional Hercules visor) carrying his combiner hand in alt mode, and it looks like we finally have an answer to Mad Blender's final mixer barrel colors: green exterior with black interior. Lastly we see the whole team and Hercules fully combined. Images mirrored below.

NICE!

I wish the hands could have integrated better into the alt and robot modes for both toys that have them. They are really unconvincing. But it's a minor quibble about the figures, they look fantastic.

I love how they incorporated the mixer as a weapon!

These images are indeed something. Though i'm a little disappointed that we don't get the purple barrel for mad blender. Today i received my Dr Crank only to discover that the Hercules head had no face. I mean he had the red transparent plastic for his eyes but there was no face!!! Anyone else had the same problem? Any ideas on who to contact and where? The irony is that along with Dr Crank today i also got the face off accessory for FP Protector. If only it could fit :BANG_HEAD:

Again, awesome pictures! Mad Blender must've stolen some ideas from Powermaster Prime and just started an account with Swindle - all those add-on weapons make him an army of one.

I liked the combined Hercules pic with the color-swapped guns. Only problem for me is, I tried building the gun with 4 red pieces I have available, but the top piece (Exgraver 's weapon) doesn't fit into the groove of the back piece (Dr. Crank's weapon). I had no problem getting the purple pieces to fit together. Anyone else tried this yet?

Maybe down the line, it'll be nice to have a 2nd set of these guys for individual modes (or at least Mad Blender). I absolutely love how these guys are turning out! :KREMZEEK:

Ugh, the wait is going to be excruciating for Bonecrusher and Mixmaster! :BOOM:

Just ordered Dr. Crank. Now that the holidays are over I can finish ordering the 3 (now 2) remianing pieces. I really cant wait to assemble this beast and see him tower over most other Transformers.

I think the hand in alt mode for Bonecrusher as a rear scrapping tool is HILARIOUS. Its genius and comical at the same time. Its cheating but also a REAL attachment on some bulldozers... too funny.

Im so tired of TFC flip-flopping with the green/purble barrels on Mixmaster.

Most people want the purple so either make it purple or give us both.

Also, Bonecrusher looks alot better with those pistons flat down because it kind of hides them. I hope reprolabels makes a set of stickers that turn his black chest green.

Can someone explain what is going on with neckbreaker's legs? How does he achieve two different feet? Do the tread legs pop off and flip around?

Based on the kibble on the shins' sides, I'd say the legs can spin around the knee. The fact that they have it both ways tells me they wanted to bend them a different direction for some shots or something, that perhaps having them a "right way" is impossible for all of the shown poses. But they don't look bad either way, so the restriction seems well accounted for. :)

Utterly fantastic. I look forward to the day when I get the complete set. (2 down so far)

Wich one comes with the leg/waist fix for Heavylabor?

Well, he has feet just like Exgraver built into his treads, and while those feet are out, the pieces of the bulldozer are above his hips. OR you can flip in his tread feet, and move the pieces of the bulldozer down to the bottom and use them as feet. I think that's pretty nifty.

$600 could complete an entire toyline for some series. Could fund a heck of a lot. But then again, oversea exclusives tend to number in the hundreds, and a botcon box set aint too far off from $600...

LMFAO!!! The folks at TFC Toys must be a hilarious bunch of truckers. All the speculation over the colour of Mad Blender's drum weapons and they give us an answer which I don't think anyone was expecting. Legends.

I join Rated X in hoping for a green chest panel for Neck Breaker, but think I'd rather paint the entire shovel myself than have a series of stickers. I see what MR Optimus Prime means about the hand hanging off the back of his vehicle mode: it's wrong but at the same it kind of works. Very happy to see his knees bend with the 'dozer shovel feet. That, and shoulder pistons down = win. But he is still the wealest figure of the bunch in my opinion.

Blender still looks awesome, even with a square cab and crazy amount of wheels. Honestly can't see the drum being able to stay on his back in robot mode. I could be wrong, but I think the transformation means the space on his back is reduced. Not to mention the fact his rifle is made from the core of the drum, and I imagine it's be quite back-heavy. I wonder why TFC masked the colour of Blender's rifle on the majority of his solo shots but then left it alone in the group shots.

Speaking of which, they certainly look like a force to be reckoned with. Very nice work. Can't wait to get them all.

Sorry for going on a bit.

The final two figures are looking really well, Neckbreaker being the better of the two.
