    still dont know how i feel about their version of reflector, but the herc upgrades look great!

    looks like it really helps give that left arm so more lateral articulation

    Reflector looks pretty cool, don't like how one is so much larger than the other 2 though, and I've just received my PE Reflector anyway who is super cool.

    Whether or not I pick up reflector depends heavily on his cost...he's just not a "gotta have it!" figure where price is no object...

    Easy pass on the Reflector set. I'm more than happy with Perfect Effects. The add on for Hercules seems to be a must buy for me though.

    I feel like that Rage set is a downgrade kit.

    They might not be the same size, but don't forget that unlike the PE version, none of them are small enough to get lost in the carpet :p 

    I'm on the fence as well; can't justify the cost of PE and I hate the scale, but these guys don't look like Reflector and the unevenness of their size bugs me too..

    I agree with others that having one member of the Reflector triumvirate who is a different size is weird. Why go the G1 homage route if you're going to change things up so drastically? I always thought part of what made Reflector cool is that all three characters were literally a "reflection" of each other, in size, color, etc.

    I wasn't into this upgrade at first since I was so impressed with the treads turning into the forearms, no kibble, but the articulation it adds just looks awesome!

    Any word on pricing yet?

    It's been on robot kingdom for months for $30
    and bbts for 50.


    Now what did they do to upgrade the heavy labor hips to get those kick poses...

    Damn that Rage set is looking mighty tempting, just for the shoulder extensions alone. I've never seen the appeal for the rage faces...they just end up looking like Devs is in the process of having a sharp metal stick shoved in his ass.

    Easy pass on Reflector...PE's looks A hell of a lot better and came out a LONG time ago.

    well these sets look amazing and I can't await the arrival of the Herc rage set as well as the Iron Army sets I really can't wait for those to release.


    unless you haven't swapped out the replacement hips I can only think of that being your problem, once I swapped out mine it made worlds of a difference

    See here's what irks me about this. Hercules was a $600 investment for a lot of people. This add on kit fixes all the aesthetic issues I had with him. Bonecrusher looking like a tractor instead of a bulldozer in combined mode is one example. However in order to achieve this, imo, better look you have to throw down another $50. For $600 these should have been included through out the 6 guys as optional accessories.

    Don't get me wrong though, because if I were to score a Hercules set for an insane price like $450 or $425 I'd nab the set because I could justify the extra $50 at that price.

    really not into that rage face i think G.I.EDDIE's rage face is better but getting more and more tempted by the rest of it but its the price for it that sort of puts me off £36 with shipping from robot kingdom or £26.80 on ebay just seems a bit pricey for what it is

    Seems stupid of them to release that Reflector, I thought they had wisely given up on it.

    So does this set actually have a new head, or just the new grimmace face?

    Forward and back yes.. Side to side no.
    And you need the side to side to get kicks.

    Easy pass on both as I'm not fixated on the G1 Devastator configuration to the point where everything has to be the same on Herc and I prefer PerfectEffect's Reflector.
