    OMG, must buy them all again for the variant packaging!

    Not :p 

    I preferred the old design anyway. The silver doesn't feel right to me.

    Couldn't care less about the different packaging color, I've been waiting since February for the seller I ordered my last 2 from to get his restocks so these pics are hopefully a sign they won't be too long.

    I prefer the old styling as well, but i guess this is a good way to tell if you have the 2nd release versions with fixes.

    I assume this is for the "box set"?

    I found Hercules to be lacking in stability even with the fixes. An overrated product it is for sure.

    I like the boxes - I think it's cool that it's so popular that they needed to make some more. Gives me hope that many more will follow. I'm ready for Super Ion - where do I sign???

    I can dig this packaging, and I'm also interested in finding out what fixes have been implemented.

    I disagree...I think they did it simply to picture the finished product if you buy all 6. Presumably there are places in China and such where these are sold not only over the interwebz...helps to know what you're getting.

    Not going to buy anything from TFC, unless they have improved their customer services and qc.

    In chinese, it is called "change the soup but not change the ingredient". Even with the new packaging, as long as no fixes are done to the QC issues, it is still the same old SHXT!

    Odd, but I guess it makes sense that they'd want to differentiate between the first release and "fixed" second release. I preordered the first 4 Herc bots from RK (so hopefully they'll arrive soon like this week) and the last 2 bots from BBTS when they were having their 3P sale. Irks me a little to have 4 silver boxes and 2 green boxes instead of 6 uniform-looking packages but it's a small matter at this point.

    I think it's all of the above. I'm also very glad that it sold well enough for them to run it again. I look forward to the TFC Superion combiner!

    Glad I have first run...it's a small thing, but I like the hazard striped look design on the boxes better, especially since its a design not found on the bots...

    This is what I'm hoping for.

    I wasn't able to get Heavylabor when he came out due to money issues, so I'm really hoping the fix for Exgraver is still there.

    Have they said if the re-released figures still include the fixes for the old ones? Luckily, outside of Exgraver the last two I got were the last two released, but I don't want to have to buy an Exgraver again to get the fixes you know?

    It would be very useful to know if all of these are "Fixed" version or not ?

    Can anyone find out ?

    What's wrong with Neckbreaker's hips? I only know of Exgraver's crane arm and Heavylabor's hip ratchet joint issues.

    Nothing. Neckbreaker comes with a new set of hips for Heavylabor.
