    So, i'm finally done with working on my Hercules!...phew!..feels like i've been working on him forever...

    overall...

    - echotransformers Herc upgrade kit
    - thedreaded1s straight shoulder adapters to lower Hercs arms
    - TFC-007 Rage kit with elbows moved in closer to body
    - a wash and drybrushing to highlight their edges, recesses and details
    - painted over as much purple as possible that would show in combined form
    - detail work to their lights and random mechanical bits
    - weathering in the form of rust and grease streaks
    - all have varying degrees of a dust effect, heavily on Hercs feet
    - wider wheels added to Structor and Heavy Labor (cast by Zildjian)
    - head and fist covers for Exgraver in his alt modes
    - ladders added to Heavy Labor and Exgraver
    - exhaust stacks added to Exgraver, Neck Breaker and Structor
    - hazard tape added as realistically as possible in both yellow/black and red/white
    - faction decals for both bot mode and alt mode
    - truck numbering and striping

    if Hercules actually looked like that (minus the weathering effect since I'm not a fan of battle damage type stuff) then I'd consider buying it.

    :jawdropper: Eddie, man your Herc looks amazing!!
    Top notch attention to detail, I love all your additions, the ladders, smokestacks, the covers.... and the wider wheels is a genius idea.
    really nice apps, love the weathering.

    I guess the only thing I dont like is that now my Herc looks kinda plain!!!!!

    very nice detailing and focus. all the additions really make up for allot of scale dis-illusions, like the details for a very large vehicle are there but weren't emphasized by the vehicles actual size. great colouring and wear affects!

    That looks absolutely FANTASTIC! I have to ask though, does the block and tackle setup on Dr. Crank work with the spindle, and if so could you post a tutorial on how to get it working?

    Outstanding mate!! I love all the intricate added colours, makes so much difference. I bet you're glad he's finished, although I can still see you looking at him, thinking 'what else could I add??' :) 
    Seriously, absolutely stunning outcome!

    ^^ Exactly my question...that is, after I wiped the drool off my keyboard and finished rubbing my eyes and wiped the tears of joy after seeing what is, without question, the best rendition of Hercules I've seen!

    The finished product looks even better than your teaser pic, G.I.EDDIE! Outstanding:thumb 

    Love your roaring pose and the pose which looks like Devestator could be yelling something like "Whhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy?!":lol

    Seriously guys, thanks so much for all the kind words...after the stupid amount of time I spent working on him, it's refreshing to hear the target audience appreciates my efforts...

    Ahh, you a$$, I can't unsee that now!

    It does work...heres the video i used on how to do it...its not mine, but another members vid...

    Dr. Crank Rigging the Hook - YouTube

    :lol ...if you only knew...for starters, looking at these pics has me wishing I hadn't roughed up Neckbreakers blade as much...

    Thanks man...I looked up hulk statues and art for rage face posing...I wish Herc had a forward ab bend as it would help tremendously with poses
