    These are the four views of the Madblender's (Mixmaster) robot mode:

    Basically the figure is very posable with good stability. The light piping on the head is poor due to its transformation with the back piece directly peg behind its head (ie something like Dr Crank/Hook). There are lots of ports for you to choose to insert the mix drum lasers/canons at the positions you so wish. I insert them at the positions I think I like best and here are some pictures in different poses:

    And four view of its vehicle mode:

    Basically the vehicle does look like a construction mixing truck, not too impressed with the front or vehicle head but I guess it is designed that way so that it will become a stable foot for Devy in combined mode. Here are more pics of the truck mode (with and without weapons attached):

    And then finally, what everyone (or at least most) is looking forward to:

    Now I am just waiting for Reprolabels......

    He might be my favorite member of the group. I dig the clean alt mode... and the fact that he completes Hercules. :)

    so now that all the figures are out does anybody know what the "secret" is surrounding Herc?? Unless its already been figured out and I just missed it completley.

    Alt mode looks great, but that's easily my least favorite looking bot mode of the bunch. I think virtually all of them could have done well with slightly smaller heads.

    But Herc... wow. Nice to see it completed. Possibly the most epic figure(s) in the past couple of years.

    I have the first 4.
    I REALLY hope you don't have to have his legs at such a wide stance.
    I would hate to pose him doing the splits all the time.

    Come on TFsource get em in get em in. :) 

    Neckbreaker is on his way and waiting on MB to come in. This is how you get the label plastic crack.

    Hasbro if they were smart would buy the rights to the design and resell it under the actual name of devastator it would make bank.

    EDIT " oh hey is the SECRET included with mad blender cause the visor is not really a secret."

    anyone have the (what was it called) T.H.C. optimus to pose with him?

    I'm pretty sure the visor can be considered the secret. but if not the secret may also be that this was finished 3 months early!

    It is all about the Money... I 'd be shocked if TFC can send a dude to talk to the (tv program) ~the Shark Tank @ABC to present a deal... Or perhaps , if that could happen... I guess it could be great if TFC just talk to the Hasbro first.. if they are interested to buy that mold..


    Nice pic... allow me to add a caption... "Pack your stuff home !!"

    Ugh that's too much junk hanging off the most unfitting places. Like I have said before the lack of ankle articulation hurts all these guys. These things just don't appeal to me much as I initially thought they would. This just seals it.

    I really don't understand why anyone would take such drastically out of scale figures and put them together. THS-02 Optimus is so small that the individual Constructicons would be Devestator scaled to him.

    The mixing drum gimmick is sort of cool in bot mode, but misproportioned in alt mode. Not my fav of the 6, but it looks great as Herc's leg in gestalt mode.

    I don't really see any secret with madblender or the completion of the whole hercules set. There isn't any extra items that comes along with the madblender except its own accessories. Well, we wait and see if others learn any secret(s) and enlight all of us.
