    TFC has dropped hints that their next project will have white and red on every member...and rumor has it, that Shattered Glass Hercules is that project...

    hyothetically, lets assume its a fact, and SG Herc is their next project, would you buy it?

    Hell no. I don't even like Hercules in the original colors much less Shattered Glass, a series I don't even collect.

    Wouldn't even buy a G2 version. 1 version is plenty.

    No, I would have to skip. I LOVE Hercules as a mold, but couldn't justify the expense on a repaint. A G2 yellow would be more tempting, but if I was gonna do that I would go Maketoys for the sake of owning two different molds.

    Nope. It's a bitchin' color scheme, even though I don't normally care for Shattered Glass. This is an obvious, albeit risky, cash grab for TFC. The price point of the initial release was already enough of a deterrent. I doubt everyone is going to want to re-buy the same figures. And those that likely passed on G1 Devs will likely pass on this. I think G2 would've been a more logical, albeit predictable, choice. However, seeing as how MT is offering a cheaper alternative in G2 colors, that would likely be a waste of time and resources to TFC as well.

    I don't think I can justify owning two copies of a toy this pricy. If they do put out G2 colors, I might consider selling my current one and getting that.

    I hope the whole "red and white" thing might mean Computron or Superion.

    This was a stupid idea to begin with. There were enough people bitching about the price in g1 colors - those people weren't going to buy this set to begin with; how many people who DID buy the set could justify a second set in less well known colors?

    I mean, I buy all kinds of third-party shit and i'll buy two Giants (yellow and green), but even I think this is a waste of money.

    No way - I would rather spend my money on a new combiner team, not one reissued in different colors.

    I'd buy one if it was within a certain price range. Definitely not for Green Herc prices.

    I'd probably buy it for $100 total, but that's not even remotely likely.
