    "Giant" from the "Build" series

    Staff Edit: Compiled pics from the thread courtesy of TFao:

    I was scanning through this thread for any pics I could find, (quite a long task believe me) and thought I would post what I came across in case anyone missed them.

    And here are all of the colored pics I came across. I may have missed a few though.

    And finally (though not in scale of course) everyone's favorite family photo...

    I wish I had thought to take note of any updates I came across, but at the time I was only looking out for pics. If I ever get the motivation and locate all of the updates, I'll start a new thread. But I think I would have to include any pics and updates for Herc too. It only seems fair... just thinking about hunting through all of those pages again makes me tired.

    Have to say - impressive Devastator.

    Though it's clearly gonna be smaller than the TFClub one. Those bots don't nearly have as much mass on them in botmode, plus half the parts are just for combiner mode. They all look to be about Scoutish size to me - I suspect the final combined mode is about Colossus' height, not including the cannons.

    I'm also pretty intrigued with how DIFFERENT those botmodes look to the originals. They've definitely done a lot of design changing/updating. Heck - Long Haul for instance is way different.

    Overall though, I think the big and blocky TFClub aesthetic fits Devy/Constructicons better. Though that's strictly opinion.

    Devastator looks way better than TFC Colossus.

    Individual Constructicons look... practically nothing like Constructicons. I'll reserve final judgment until we see the unblurred photos, though.

    If it's sized like FP's not-Bruticus and costs no more than $50 per Constructicon (i.e. up to $300), I'm all over it.

    That looks amazing! Why are Hasbro letting these 3rd party companies beat them with such great products?

    This looks like it might be a better match for the FP Superion and Bruticus...

    Looking at the individual bot pics, no way those are integrated into the bots. They're too chunky compared to the individual proportions.

    Not to say that makes this bad. It looks quite good nonetheless. Though I'm unsure yet of if I like the individual Constructicons.

    Mine will probably be in combined form 99% of the time so I don't mind that the individual bots don't look like the Constucticons. These will be perfect for "Classics" which are re-imagined G1 anyway. I hope Devy is the same size as FP Bruticus.

    I suspect it will be.

    The limbs look Scout-sized, and the main body is two Scouts mashed together.

    If you guys don't mind, what aspects are you guys using to judge the size of the characters? I guess I don't understand how you can look at those and peg them as a particular size?

    (I'm being serious)
