But yeah, some of the names ... even Fansprojects' names for the Nonsecticons kinda suck.
Edit: Not loving that wait piece. I really hope that's just in the prototype becaus eit looks like it was made to fully collapse.

also, doesn't it look like his chest would fall apart if you shook him too much?

In its combiner form by itself it reminds me of a turkey (in the form you buy from the grocery store, not the complete live bird).

Sad thing is... you can't actually attach these first two figures together!!!! You have an arm and some abs.
When they arrive, you can't even make a stubby stump of a no-arm, no-leg giant wad of RAWRRR-I'M-HERCULES-AND-I"M-EATIN'-UP-ALL-YOR-SHELF-SPACE-NOM-NOM-NOM floor-candy .
And I was looking forward to that.

If the colour matches that of exgraver i'll get it. One thing that worries me i want to see a full Devy review so we all can be 100% sure that it fits together nicely and can still be posed. If TFC wants to have their figs review send them my way hehe.

However, I'd still prefer to get a FP upgrade for my Classics Devastator. His two buddies got one and now he feels all naked.

Exgraver's transformation is spot on if not a little more detailed transformation wise. his arms tuck in beside him and his legs fold up underneath him just like the g1 version.

I just can't justify doing the early bird thing on this toy. What if one of the pieces has terrible QC? What if it has terrible shipment? What if it's cancelled and I'm left with 4 limbs and no head?
Even at the better price, I don't think these are going to sell at the rate they were expecting...obviously it is just a feeling based on comments and such, but I would also guess you'll see plenty of stock on these guys and a reduced price for not only the individuals but maybe even the complete package. those of us who can wait and afford...shall take our chances. If I could get the whole thing for 400 bucks shipped...It would be a no brainer...but since I feel like they got greedy at the 100 dollar price point...and are now reducing it slightly...no deal until that comes true.

I can't believe I am having this conversation at all, let alone on two forums, lol. So far, the only colour images of Heavylabour we have seen are the 3d computer renderings. They would give Hercules grey hips, purple thighs and a black crotchplate. Personally I am rather used to Devastator having a green crotchplate, except in IDW where it was purple. Either way, not black. I can always paint it, but due to the transformation it will get scratched and bumped a lot, meaning I will forever be doing touchups in that case, what a pain.
I really hope when we do get a colour production image, that that crotchplate is green.
