    Sorry but I have not really messed with the legs due to the issues with HL and his ratchets. So I have not actually moved the legs too much since I am waiting for the fixes to come.

    But I am sure Herc is sweet whether he is standing or posing!

    I guess I don't understand. Is the hip ratchet problem widespread or have I missed something?

    What are you going to do with the duplicate limbs once Hercules is complete?

    It is pretty widespread for the most part because due to the stiffness of the tooth piece on the ratchet, it does not give enough and it ends up stripping the ratchet. So the more you move the legs on HL front and back, the more it will strip it. So TFC says they will be sending replacement parts on either the release of NB or MB. But we are not sure yet as to what those parts will be exactly.

    I will be having my Herc displayed in combined mode as well as individual bot modes. It will be a TON of green and purple! Hahah!

    Actually, official word is that the parts will come with Neckbreaker, the next one due up for release.

    So if you're one of the people getting them shipped in one-by-one, then you can get your Heavy Labor fixed-up right quick.

    It's pretty moot, either way, though. The ratchets are only a critical component for Hercules himself, and unless you're one of the people that bought double limbs, having Herc's legs in poseable condition isn't exactly a priority.

    Hmm. I gushed all over the combined mode for a long time, but seeing it now...it doesn't really do anything for me. I know I disliked pretty much all the robot modes, but I always said I loved this combined mode.

    I don't know what it is now, but...eh. It's crazy cool that a combiner on this scale was made, but I don't know where my enthusiasm for it went or why. Something is putting me off.

    I appreciate the quick review, but would certainly like to see his range of movement.

Having aquiring BT I like the quality of it so Im perty sure their Devy won't be that bad n' it tickles me pink when I see it! As well I like how it's in scale with Bruticus. Thanks for the vid P as always.

    TFC Hercules complete video review

    Here's my review of TFC Hercules!

    Transformers Review #5: TFC Hercules - YouTube

    -=UPDATE=-

    My Exgraver weapon came with some stress marks out the box. So I finally got around to using the heat gun on it to remove them. BE VERY CAREFUL if you have to do the same. The plastic used in these toys looses it form very quickly when heated! I was able to remove the stress mark without damaging the piece, but I did have to go back to re-heat it to make it straight again.

    Excellent review! I went from no interest to greatly considering picking this up.
