    I must admit I find these figures a lot more "palatable" then TFC Hercules. Apart from the not-Long-Haul robot mode that is. And the yellow color is superb.

    I have to say, that's a hell of a deal for a Devy. I'm a proud Hercules owner but if you couldn't make a run at him based on cost, this should definitely fill some folks Devy needs for a much lower price.

    I commend Maketoy on keeping the price reasonable for a 3rd Party item.

    All I have to say it that Giant hit their $350 price point. Ok this is $357 but I would assume a box set would come in under that. AND this is BBTS prices so it may be cheaper through Robot Kingdom (Unless MT has the same universal pricing as FP does, which is extremely likely)

    All in all good news and I look forward to adding Giant to Classics and upgrading Hercules to Centerpiece status (which means I may have to bite on Hegemon)

    This is truely good news....now bring on the green.

    Two more things.

    With a set release slated for May I assume the Green version will be ready for June or July. Sweeet another Christmas in July :)  WOOT WOOT!

    Second, Why is Mixmaster ALWAYS last. I take it he is the most popular of the bunch? Personally speaking, during the Hercules rollercoaster, he was the one I was most anticipating and even then he was last. lol

    Hmmm. Pass. Waiting for the green one and on rebate. With TFC clearly which is the better one, I say this will go on rebate and maybe the green one. I'll take advantage of TFC lead and leave this one in the pressure cooker then maybe let it simmer longer. I smell rebate coming.

    $360 + shipping, not bad! But I'd like to see what the green version will look like before I decide. On the one hand, I prefer G1 color, but on the other hand, isn't yellow a more realistic color for construction vehicles? But I digress.

    Must...hold...out...for...green. But damn, they REALLY brought that on the deck for a reasonable price.

    Each of these turned out to cost about as much as an FP Insecticon. Not as many accessories...but then they combine!

    Erm. Clearly my ass. Speak for yourself.

    Anyway I guess that's a pretty fair price. $60 for each deluxed sized guy certainly beats other third party deluxes at their price points (Defender, those Arcees, etc). It actually seems more in line with FP prices, since the Colossus duo were scout sized with accessory overload and the ninjacons were a little larger than scouts at $50 a pop.

    And even then these guys cost more due to extra paint apps. The green version will be slightly cheaper.

    The hard part is waiting for the green. I'm contemplating picking up the yellow ones to mess with and then selling it if I prefer the green one. :F

    Haha.

    I am and yes TFC's better. Letting this simmer in it's own juices waiting to bite on those sweet rebated prices. I can smell the rebates already.

    transbot, why are you waiting? Battle Tanker being their first example is 102$ in RK, and 102$ at BBTS, so whoever gives you cheapest shipping, I'd go for it :p

    Do you mean your going to wait until this thing goes on clearance? I really doubt this will ever go on sale or any thing at this price, and I think your seriously underestimating the demand for Giant.
