A couple of new teaser images of a fully combined TFC Toys Hercules have been posted to the weibo page of TFC的C. The images are blurred but this Hercules appears to be assembled using finished versions of the four currently available figures, Exgraver, Heavy Labor, Structor, and Dr. Crank, and colored test shots of Neckbreaker and Mad Blender, who will feature a green mixer drum. Images mirrored below.

:CON:
I don't really care what the final colors are going to be. I just cannot wait to have this huge combiner bot on top of my display standing with one foot on top of FP Bruticus and FP Superion in his grasp held over his head. Total Devastation!! :CON:

I don't understand the purpose of the blurry images. Is not being able to see it supposed to make me want to buy it more? If so, it's not working.

On topic: Although a purple barrel would look great in Devi mode, I can see how dumb it would look in in vechicle mode. Kind of like green or purple threads on Scavenger or Bonecrusher. I guess they were shooting for realistic looking construction vechicles while maintaining G1 characteristics. As far as the new head, it looks like a clip on visor, but I could be wrong. Im sure some company will come out with a G1 head and maybe G1 accurate weapons for this set. Im sure the demand would be great.

Off topic: I swear, only in the TF collecting world do people blur their advertisments to create teasers. I wonder if Chevy or Ford could get away with that type of nonsense in their advertisments ? And from the comments above mine, it looks like Im not the only one who does not respect this tactic.

So let me get this straight: they show us what 80% of the thing looks like at the prototype stage, people already own several parts of it and now at the very end of the road they blur it like they're hiding something. Do they think people will be surprised that it's Devastator?

I'm assuming it's blurred because it looks like Mad Blender and Neck Breaker are molded in final colour plastic but may not yet be fully painted (for example, MB's truck windows appear unpainted; the two black spots visible in the full body shots are too high up to be the windows).

I don't know that there's any differences to the head, I think that's just blurring. It would be strange if there are at this point, since the head is part of Dr. Crunk Crank, who has already begun shipping (I hope to have mine this week).

In any case, TFC, SHOW US THE DEVY!

Hercules' head is only attached by a ball joint, isn't it? I'm sure it could be easily swapped for a new head sculpt if they were providing one. But I'll agree that it's probably just clip-on sunglasses.

I personally wouldn't have minded a purple drum on Blender. In fact, I think I would've preferred it. I don't think it would have looked too weird as most cement mixing trucks have drums that are coloured differently to the rest of the bodywork. Plus it would mean we wouldn't have eight bright green weapons. :SICK:

I know Neckbreaker can't be seen clearly (even if it wasn't for the pointless blur), but looking at him I wouldn't be surprised if he had some paint apps on him too.

Holy sh*t this is Devastator?! :shock:

But seriously TFC, enough with the damn blurry teasers we know what 70% of it looks like, just show us the full thing with all of it's damn detailing already.
I mean seriously, most of those who care to see what it looks like already own half of the damn thing, just throw us a bone.

Yeah, some contrast there would be nice. Maybe they'll include both purple and green drum parts? :APPLAUSE:

Yeah, right. #-o

At least it isn't translucent red. :BANG_HEAD:

He very well could, it's just pretty obvious that Mad Blender's windows are unpainted.

OH FOR THE LOVE OF PRIMUS,

This has got to be the ABSOLUTE WORST FIGURE in the history of Transformers collecting. Everyone that foolish enough to spend this much money on a stupid piece of plastic should be led to the Cybertronian Smelting Pool. What a pile of scrap! :sad:

Don't you have a bridge to be under? :KREMZEEK:

Seems pretty dippy to me to blur him at this point, especially considering I've had this image as my background for weeks now.

But all that aside, It's looking good.

I'd prefer purple parts for the mixing drum, but whatever.
I expect someone will make aftermarket parts for that at some point.

Well, with such a well thought out and informed argument like that, I really don't have a leg to stand on.

Cuff me.

With the way the parts combine on that barrel, you know they had more options. I would have at least like a stripe around the middle or something.

Allow me to be the first to welcome you to Seibertron! :APPLAUSE:

It's a tough decision. I'm going to have trouble not getting them both because both Hercules and Giant look excellent, though that's a LOT of scratch. I'm already committed to the Hercster in any case; should be getting Structor and Dr. Crunk Crank this week; with Heavy Labor and Exgraver sitting in a pile of loot.
