a few things i noticed were he pratically had to hold the figure the entire time for the review which makes me wonder if he can even stand let alone pose like the images weve seen. and that led feature looks like shockwaves head was transplanted onto devastator. also those fingers leave much to be desired.

as others have said with the advent of herc and giant there doesnt seem to be much need for these addons unless you want to give devy an update which i dont. >:oP

Not exactly a ringing endorsement but if I had the original Constructicons I'd bite. Especially over CrazyDevy. They cost more for a single part than this does in total.

Even if I had the money for Herc or Giant the wife wouldn't let me drop $600 on something like them. I did get the all clear for a G1 RI with this add-on kit. More than reasonable for me and even better I didn't get hosed trying to get all the CD parts.

Just thought I'd let you know YAHobby is offering TFC Hercules six figures for 500.00 shipped with their discount code as opposed to 630.00 from TFSource and BBTS. I had to wait for the six but saving money is more important.

Wish we had known this was the case. There was alot of hype and assumption that the first figures would be sold out by the time the last one came out.

Sorry to bother, but can you share the link to YAToys? I can only find the individual figures.

Another great review in depth of its pros and cons.

Very good.

The good thing about it is it can stand up by it self. :APPLAUSE:

I have this set, and I love it. Being the O.C. dummy I am, I went to work on fixing this set.

1) Like everyone, I filed down the head/back connector. It now "clip lock's" into place.
2) The fingers. :???: I took them all off, and indiviually added superglue in small amounts to the bars that connect the fingers. Now, they all move, are super tight, and don't fall off, so things like can be done with the greatest of ease.

3)Bonecrusher's peg wasn't big enough to hold the arm. Again, with super glue, put a small amount in the joint, and worked it back and forth until dry. now it holds pretty much any pose.
4) Waist Cover: had to file down the one side, because the flaps were un-even.. dont know if that was an issue, but whatevs.
5)Finally, the leg piece was loose in Longhaul.So, once again, superglued that mother up.

All in all, easy mods that make the figure more stable and easier to play with.
I do plan on making some heels for dev, because even though he can stand, a light breeze can come through and screw the pooch.
