Some new in-hand images of MakeToys upcoming Giant components, Excavator and Bulldozer, have surfaced on ACToys. These two will comprise the first Giant two-pack that is scheduled to release sometime in January. Unfortunately these images, which we've mirrored below, only display the pair in their vehicle modes. Of note, the stickers have changed since the last time we saw these two. The "Excavator" and "Bulldozer" stickers have now changed to "MTC Co.".

Update: Added robot mode images.

Can't wait for these beauties. Time to start up that GeeToo collection.

These are great, still I will hesitate to get them. Do I really need TWO $600-ish Devastator's? I suppose if I give up on unnecessary expenses like food and shelter I can pick em up.

This is the set I've been waiting on too, but I'm still trying to decide if I should wait to see if they are doing them in G1 green and purple.

As long as they are G1-ish accurate (doesn't have to be perfect, but enough to be recognized), they're green and purple, and they're cheaper than Hercules, I'll look into buying the whole set. ;)

I like giant but I ain't getting the G-2 colored yellow one. I'm gonna have patience & wait for the G-1 colored giant.

I wonder if it was an overall good move on their part to release these guys in G2 colors first...

Still, I'll be hoping there are enough sales in this set to eventually push Maketoys to bring us the G1 repaints. Going to hold onto my checkbook until then.

Regardless, it's one fantastic set of constructicons!!

Pretty sure they said the final green version box set would be in the $300-ish range. It better be, because I have a lot of the money saved up for it already.

Can't wait to get the green versions!

While I know that Devastator has his iconic look in green and purple, but for some reason these guys look mighty awesome in G2 colors. Probably had to do with how yellow contruction vehicles are more common where I live, but i think the way Maketoys design them also contribute to the overall feel of the figures.

I am so getting these. =P~

These look Killer!
I'll be getting them, hopefully they don't have quality issues that need to be fixed with the release of the second pair.
I like Giant more then Hercules, but they are different enough to get them both.

That is still keeping me from buying Hercules, I still don't know which Constructicon fixes Exgraver's shovelthing, and which bot fixes HeavyLabor's hips.
And just read that Dr. Crank can come without Hercules' face!

Noooo!

I think I'm going to be getting this set in green when its released (If I can get the money!) instead of Hercules - these guys are half the size, but half the price too.

While they're both ambitious projects, and naturally there will be some issues to deal with, Hercules has had several problems which combined with the overall price make it a deal breaker for me.

I also prefer the look of Giant to Hercules and think he's going to fit into my classics collection better.

I thought the price for the 2 packs of this set was $150. That's not exactly 1/2 the price of the other set...

Ive waited so long for these and the more i see the yellow version the more i hate the colour and the stickers

They should have brought the green out first which i think they would have sold more of in a flash and then the yellow for those who want g2 and it would had more excitement about it instead of WTF.

I live in the UK so I was calculating the cost in Pounds Sterling.
The price of the 2-packs is currently set at 10,500 Yen, which converts to 88.00 Pounds at the current exchange rate.

The price of an individual Hercules figure (In this example, Dr. Crank) is around 70.00 Pounds
from my preferred online store. There is a difference, you're right but it's not far off.
Rumour has it that the 6-figure set in G1 colours will be slightly cheaper than the 3 2-figure packs too :-)

Hmmm...these appear to be significantly smaller and more detailed then the Hercules molds. However the Herc' has much more bulk on his side then these guys. If TFC made a repaint in realistic colors like these guys...well that would be just plain awesome. (Hey, I liked the yelllow repaint of G2 Devy as it looked much more convincing then a team of bright green vehicles

I gotta disagree. They are trying to capitalize on people who are already committed to Hercules but cant resist a G2 Devi to go with their Botcon 2010 stuff. And Im one of those people who might get suckered into buying both. Im really liking the colors. Even if the robot modes suck they do make a nice Devi allowing me to display Hercules in individual robot modes.

I'm glad they changed the stickers on them. Still can't wait to see more pics of them. Even if these guys together are only a hundred dollars less than TFC's Hercules, I'm still sold. That's a hundred dollars saved..........

If Maketoys "Hauler" wasn't so visually revolting I'd be more on board with this set. I like the individual robot sizes and combined mode height, but can't get past some of their design choices. It's like the FP insecticons. So RIGHT and yet so WRONG.
Hercules also has a weird looking "Hauler" but it's less MOVIE weird and more Energon Demolisher weird...

These guys really do look scout class size. I know they're pretty much deluxe, but their design makes them look smaller to me. Not sure I like it. I was hoping to get both Hercules and Giant (although not sure which colour of Giant) but I can't see me having the funds anymore. Such a shame as I do think MakeToys' set is really great looking.

I like them in the yellow, but am saving for the set of green and purple ones as I don't have any Devy bar the Sixbuilder repaint.

Heavylabor had the fixed scooper for Exgrave, and Mad Blender will probably be the one with the fixed hips for heavylabor.


Also where did you hear about Dr.Crank arriving without devastators face? This is the first time I have heard of it. :S
