    Is anyone else finding themselves tormented at not yet having ordered the Maketoys Giant or TFC's Hercules? Or both for that matter?

    I personally want both. Their price tags are such hard pills for me to swallow.

    However I do plan on getting TFC Hercules in a few weeks or so after some saving, shortly followed by the Green Giant set.

    Its a lot of money but...FUCK....I MUST HAVE THEM!!! lol

    Anyone else??

    I want both. I only have Herc for now.

    I don't think it's lust. More like OCD for my display.

    I'm just missing the middle part then I'm good at least for now.

    They are super expensive, especially if you are getting both. Myself, I can only afford Giant (I have no interest in Herc anyways) but I am very excited for him to release. So excited I've actually started buying weapons for Giant to use and be in super cool poses. I'm actually really thankful that I'm living in a time period where I have seen the rise and boom of 3rd party products while being able to afford them and get the ones I want. Its amazing and something that I will remember for my entire life.

    Couldn't agree with you more. We are spoiled in regards to figures nowadays. It is the golden age 3rd party products.

    I only have Hercules and G1 Devastator, and for me that's enough. I considered green giant up until Herc was complete, don't really feel the need for him now unless I can find it really cheap, and even then it would only be to display the individual robot modes.

    I'm two figures into Herc, interrupted by my trip to Anime North. unfortunately for me, other 3rd party manufacturers insist on releasing all sorts of other really tempting, expensive plastic crack around this time.

    Part of me wishes I had waited for Giant, though. I kinda like the departure Maketoys took, and honestly, Herc's individual bot modes don't always grab me. (Exgraver, looking at you, bud)

    I was in the fence but decided not to jump on devas, the idea of a combiner is fine but Devas is not so much my interest as say Bruticus, Mensor, Superion or maybe Computron. So instead of getting Devas I will mostly save to get those others when they come out ;)

    I think Menasor is going to make everyone forget about other combiners. Or make them look insignificant by comparison.

    Menasor is my favourite yet sadly I haven't bitten on any. :( 

    That would be a Ptitvastator. A custom which sadly will probably never be completely finished.

    I am super antsy for my (hohoho) Green Giant. I like it's look more than Herc's and it's cheaper. Give it to me now!

    I wanted Hercules from the moment designs and prototypes were first shown. Glad I got it, I live the look and size of it. I don't see the need to get Giant.

    Now that TFC is doing Super Ion (which I'll almost certainly buy) I kinda want Hercules to "go with it". But affording *two* TFC combiners is way too much. I'll probably hope and wait that some day Hercules is like half-off somewhere to clear out the last few.
