    Nothing comes up on that link, at least not on my phone. But I'm glad to hear, "hey, we got it right this time, buy it again."

    Here is a working link: http://www.kapowtoys.co.uk/toys-hercules-revised-edtion-p-5463.html


    It would be great if it were a true boxed set, that had each figure on display in either robot or alt mode. Or, the combined Hercules mode behind a clear window for display would be great as well. But this is basically just one huge box that contains the individually boxed figures. In US currency, the price comes to around $588 and that's before shipping.

    Pass.

    so revised version means that the figures are already put together with the replacement parts that came with latter individual figures or revised means even more revisions beyond the replacement parts I wonder? Would suck if it's the latter especially when alot of people already dropped $600 on the 1st release.

    Have no intentions of purchasing it again, but I'm curious if it's anything more than the previous version with the same 'fixes' they provided after the fact... 'Eliminating errors found in previous versions' would seem to suggest NB's blade will be green, though. :lolol

    I think this just means it's all new production with the changes many of them had during the second run of figures for each. Just a new run of all the figures, probably these are coming from the same run as the April restocks.

    If they really wanted to move sales of the box set, they'd include the accessory pack with it (rage face, shoulder extensions, etc).

    Wow - I'm happy with the Herc I have, but I wonder -

    These are being offered in sets of 6? Like, not individually?

    Some of the singles from the first round are sold out on some sites and listed as "preorder". I wonder if more singles will ever show up, OR - are they ONLY a set now? Like - if someone only needs Dr. Crank, are they boned into using Ebay?

    I think they're just trying to sell more plastic unless they made some major improvements to the combiner joints.

    Yeah, this definitely isn't a singular boxset. It's just all 6 figures in their original packaging being sold together as a set. All the same, I may actually spring for it.

    Looks to be just like what Sidecutter's offering, the six individual bots in one sale.

    I'd also like to know when they say revised do they just mean exgraver with second edition scoop and heavy labour with 'fixed' hips but nothing else?
    Also will neckbreaker still include a second set of hips or not?
    I'm very happy with my set but curious.

    Yes, same thing I've been offering, just the six single bots.

    The Revised edition part means that these are new-run figures with the fixes that were included in second runs of earlier figures. Should be stuff like the fixed teeth on Exgraver's shovel arm at the base, the greased hips on Heavy Labor, etc.

    They aren't any better...they just add a little grease to them, and if the replacement set is a good indicator, they do a pretty half-assed job of applying the grease to most of them.
