    Great review. So does the addon kit do anything interesting with the figs on their own or is it just combined mode really? Is there even any way to store the extra parts in alt modes?

    Ugh those shoulders look awful like that. Too blocky and straight.

    That's a good question. Yes, the forearms have pegs that come out of them to be held as cannons, or placed into peg holes in the alt. modes as well.

    Of course, there's no space to store a complete extra head and whatnot, but at least the bulkiest pieces can be stored.

    The shoulders honestly don't have much more mass added the them at all from the treads, and you can still angle them in and out like before.

    I'm trying to find the pics that we had way back showing the bots with the them as weapons.

    Interesting but not really doing it for me, I think I'll just be leaving the arms and shoulders in the box unless they really wow me in person.

    Honestly, the new helmet and faces are pretty neat, so it's not a complete waste of $$$, but $50 a bit much just for the alt. head.

    BUT, you may be able to sell the arm additions too, so all isn't lost.

    Oh I've already got it ordered based on how much I love the gun and new head, I think I've already have one person ask me about buying the arms off me so I might be able to make something back on this if I really don't like them, I might decide having the option to do it is worth it though.

    Did you put him back to his original form of Herc after this? I put the Rage kit on, but its just not for me, I really love how the treads are the forearms. Also he just seemed so top heavy, I was worried about him toppling over. Back to my original question, did your shoulder ports seem looser after all this. I really had to pull to get the extensions out, I mean they were really in there. When I assembled him back to the original version, I noticed that the 2 bots seemed to push on much easier than before. Nice review by the way, keep it up.

    I'm another person that might be interested in just the arms, so if anyone really likes another barely distinguishable head, get at me.

    I can't really answer any of this because I kept mine with the Rage kit on. I didn't get any sense of balance issues from it.

    Hi, I am interested in buying a Rage of Hercules set. It's mostly sold out of my familiar stores. Does anyone know any stores or people, that are selling a set?

    If anyone existing users are willing to part with some pieces from their set, PM me! Im willing to pay well for these pieces. I would like to purchase all the pieces, but especially interested in the shoulder upgrades, and the forearms.
