Which 3rd party Devastator would you recommend?

Do you love your new Hercules set? Can't get enough of FansProject's items? Upset that you bought a knock off when you thought you were getting an original? Use this forum to tell everyone your thoughts about unlicensed and knock off TF products.

There's something to be said for your bots' profile and stance when on display. I've watched a bunch of videos comparing these two, and it seems that Herc's priority was sheer size and weight. But his body shape looks wrong to me, with cartoonishly large hands and the legs awkwardly stuck on the bottom of a great green rectangle.

Giant on the other hand looks sexier to me, and pulls off the unified look better. He has a more natural stance and personality.

One of the best comparisons of the two I've heard is this - Herc is a more impressive set of transforming figures, while Giant is a better homage / modernization to what you imaged the cartoon would look like in real life. The latter is def what I'm looking for, and the reason most masterpiece figures are so sought after.

Except friggin ugly Megatron.

I'm glad to hear someone else say this. I just got MP Megs on Ebay and it's a horrible figure. You can't post it at all and it's just ugly. I would sell that thing in a heartbeat if they redid it and made it better.

Also, thanks everyone for posting those pictures! I've not been able to find any like those doing a Google Image search. It's just one or the other, not comparisons to the original. I love how much bigger they both are than the original. Both look great too. It might come down to cost, assuming I happen to have $375 just laying around.
