    I love the Hercules figures so far, but really hate the color scheme. As lazy as some people percieve them to be, I love the color schemes of the g1 cartoon on most characters, so that's what I've been trying to do with these guys so far. No pics of Scavenger yet, but I took this one of Long Haul yesterday after I painted him. I realize it's blurry as hell (I had a few beers while working on it), I will post better pics later today, the paint came out really nice in person. I was going for the cartoon scheme. Anyway, just wanted to share. Alt mode pics to follow. Spray painted him with green apple and did the arms in flat black primer so far

    I like the color scheme update,probably because I'm a big G1 fan and grew up with the cartoon.

    Yeah, I bought that can of paint YEARS ago (like 2004) and never used it. It definitely gets the shade of green from the cartoon. The bumper I am wating on painting to see what it looks like combined. For now even though it's not toon-accurate, it doesn't look so out of place.

    Looks a lot better than the original. Once you complete "Hercules aka Not-Devastator" and paint them up, it's going to look amazing.:thumbs2:

    Dude I love it! I was JUST saying to Rumble619 the other day that the color scheme bugged me a bit. I agree with you on the G1 color apps looking better. I have one expected to show up Wednesday and I do think I will be doing this. The only prob is that devs will have green thighs but the way this looks.....I think I can live with that.

    I'm cool with the green thighs. He had green thighs on the show, so I can live with that.

    i just don't like how it breaks up the torso in Herc mode...someone did a digi of that purple bumper in green and it looks a million times better that way on Hercules...

    could you maybe take a pic of HL in torso mode?...with and w/o the bumper on him?

    This is looking fabulous man! It even fix up his short lower leg appearance.

    I'd like to make the same on mine, but I learned that working with this light green paint is such a pain in the nuts.
