As much as I love the detail and the sheer size this guy will have over my classic figures, I can't justify spending almost $500 for a completed figure, not including shipping.

Which is a shame, cause these look awesome!

I'm expecting Exgraver any day now, and I plan to get the set. HOWEVER, I will be waiting to preorder this guy until I see a color prototype that proves beyond a shadow, that the greens will be uniform. If they are not, I will wait and check out the other Devy. >:oP

"Heavylabor"? Really? That was the best we could do? I realize the name doesn't matter, but come on...

I doubt they speak English as their first language, so the name probably sounds cool to them.

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.

am I the only one who thinks he looks a little bit, IDK, on the stout side? I mean, I guess I was expecting him to be a little less stalky, and alittle more upright. he just seems too stalky for how big he's supposed to be is all...
also, doesn't it look like his chest would fall apart if you shook him too much?

I really like it... but it looks like they got their heads all switched. This one SURE looks like our buddy Scrapper... less like the round dome mug of Long Haul. :-?

I like the bot mode better than Exgraver (although, yes, Exgraver did appear to strongly resemble the original Scavenger bot form). Nice guns too. It will be interesting to see in color.

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).

Regarding the fall-apart look mentioned... could be a floppy figure, or could be held together well but awesomely poseable. I can hope. Only way we'll find out for real is as the reviews start pouring in.

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.

the completed figure looks good, don't know yet, the maketoy completed one still looks better to me.

Although he has a crapload of kibble on his back the detail looks superb and the articulation seems alright judging from the pictures.

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.

Well, now that I have seen images with the completed legs, I am sold on this one instead of the MakeToy one. I already had Exgraver on the way, but now I'm sure this is the way that I want to go.

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.

I still wish their transformations were more accurate to G1, but these still look amazing.

Heavylabor. Because I think I'd rather give birth than fork over that much potential retail Transformers money on a third party gestalt that's getting released piece by piece. 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?

Re: Robotkingdom.com: Preorders for TFClub Hercules Heavylabor (1270409)

Yeah, it would suck to start blowing hundreds of dollars... only to read a review that they don't hold together well, QC is crap, etc.

Really want to order these guys, but hesitant....

Exgraver is an awesome, and very solid figure. It gave me a lot of confidence to order the next one. My only concern is the colour of Heavylabour's buttplate, ie Devvies crotchplate. 8-}

What's the deal with the color of the crotch-butt?

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.

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.
