Our 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.

Interesting. It's a really cool looking gun at the very least. 8)

I like it, I'm not sure I'm ready to spend anymore money on Hercules though....

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

Nice to know that $600+ toy is now getting add on's... oi.

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.

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.
