TFC has posted a couple new images of the prototype of Hercules member Dr. Crank.
If you are familiar with Transformers Generations 1 Constructicons, Dr. Crank looks similar to Constructicons Surgical Engineer - Hook.

The new images showcased Dr. Crank in both robot and vehicle mode. Dr. Crank is also to form the chest part of the almighty Hercules.

I really hope that these colors on Dr. Hook have nothing to do with the final colors. Makes me worried that we have not seen either of the 2 finish Hercules guys in anything like this.

It's a prototype, dude, people would have TFC's "head" if any of those colors are on the final version, not to mention, there are already some green protoype pics of him.

Im liking the new Hook so far. I hope they dont use that purple on the prototype though. Too light.

I suppose there's a "G2 colors" joke in this somewhere... (And for the record, I'm well aware that the prototype above is not the final color scheme.)

Really, guys? You really think they're going to f*** up a $600 figure by using those colors? 8-} The color scheme has already been shown with the release of Exgraver. The only real question left regarding color is what color will Mixmaster's barrel be? That and maybe which parts might be purple as opposed to green?

Naw man, he's fighting breast cancer. :grin: He is a 'Doctor' after all. 8-}

Looks cool, I think I like his design the most so far, especially the head mold. Ah, if only I could afford/display these...

It has a tab on it, I'm guessing it has something to do with the combination.

It's comments like these that makes me afraid that everyone has the right to vote.

Um, very interesting prototype colors. :P Otherwise, very nice looking. But I might end up getting Mixmaster first, Scrapper, then this guy, Scavenger, Long Haul, then finally Bonecrusher since he's the lamest looking robot mode. :P

If you actually wait to buy them in that order you might be paying a shitton of cash on the secondary market... Unless they ultimately do a box set and you buy them all in one shot.

^^ i agree.. that's why i bought into Herc now. for one, i don't know how long the production run will be. if i wait for things to be completed, there could one or two of them that's always out of stock.

and two, resellers might put a premium on them...


i don't want to repeat what happened to me with FP Bruticus... :BANG_HEAD:

That's the one thing that's keeping me away from these guys. Might get my first job soon (funnily enough, Toys "R" Us), so that will get me up to speed. ;)

Still on the fence about getting these guys, mainly because I think Herc is looking a tad bit flat at the back of his head, considering that they had to incorporate it in the alt mode. :-?

People will find any reason to complain. The whole point of these guys is all the pieces are stored, even the hands/head.
Please don't get it. That will leave more for me. I see its value.

Who poses a figure showing the back of the head?

"But with such a small head, their combined form won't be very bright."
"Trust me, that's a good thing."
"Oh?"
"You've met Starscream, haven't you?"
"Ohhhh..."

And people will find any reason to get hostile just because I'm stating my uncertainties. Seriously man, you call THAT complaining? Really? I actually find them to be quite the work of geniuses, but with Maketoys teasing their version of Devy, I can't really decide yet.

I just need to see some side view of it, that's all.
