Also, I hope that the thing about Giant's colour being yellow is just a mistake. For Giant I'll be waiting for the box set I'm just not feeling the price of 65 dollars for each figure.

Smart move to do two-packs for these guys, but it's a little more than I would've liked (if you compare to FansProject's Bruticus upgrade sets, they came out at about $100 for the set).
Having the major projects line up 4 months in a row is a little disheartening to my wallet, but I guess that's just a rant I'll have to live with. But the Prime trailer is a must for me, may have to wait for Giant.

I think I'll be sticking with the Hercules set.
It's a bit pricey for the mini-bots, but I will be getting that Powerglide!
I like the Prime upgrade. I may get that, but I'm not that into the original figure, so I'll probably wait and hope the price comes down.
All in all this looks like good 3rd party stuff!

I can read Japanese and it is "yellow'. So now I have to go out and find green paint.
