    TFC and MakeToys not Devastators, to display one as not devastator and the other as the not consctructicons?

    Expensive? - YES

    Tempted? - YES

    No, I'm not getting either. I'll try and get the Encore Devastator.

    I'm passing on Hercules, but the Maketoys Devastator has my interest at the moment.

    Not in the slightest.

    The MakeToys one looks nice but the scale means smaller individual Constructicons which won't fit in with my display.

    TFC all the way.

    very tempted but bot mode will be the deciding factor for me. tfc is ok but the heads are kinda off to me

    although the make toys version's longhaul seems a little wierd also

    Not at all. I might be swayed upon seeing Maketoys' pricing (has that been released yet?) but so far, the TFC bots are priced so far into the stratosphere that I hope the whole thing fails to sell well. Maybe we'd see price reductions in that case.

    The fanboy inside of me wants both in multiple sets. I wish I could afford to get three sets of each. Display both Herc and Giant in combined move, all the bots in robot mode, and all the bots in vehicle mode.... but I can't drop three grand on these guys. I probably will wind up getting both though.

    I'm leaning more toward TFC, but I'm impressed with MT's as well. I'd like to own both, but this will mean that I'll have to allocate almost all of my collection budget to them.

    Was gonna get Hercules, but that 100 bucks a pop price is not for me. Maketoys' Devastator is supposed to come in one set though (I believe) so it'll be cheaper and I might bite if it's under 250.

    Tempted? There's no question about it - I'll definitely get both.

    Peaugh's Twitter. I started following him a while ago-he has a lot of news up before it hits here. Also, all six constructicons were revealed at once. If they were being released separately we'd see one or two prototypes at a time.

    I'm wondering if TFC might get a little nervous now with some competition. Especially if the MakeToys version has a much lower price point.

    In general this may be good news for collectors, because competition may keep prices down...

    I definitely won't be investing in Hercules. I'll need to see more detail on the other one to know if I really want it or not. In the meantime, encore Devastator will do just fine.
