    Ok, so I've been going through the various threads on both versions of devy, and I couldn't find all the info I was trying to get. I know this thread has been made like a million times, but I just wanted to know their differences. So instead about making the thread just personal opinion, I was wondering the following... if available.

    What are the size differences?
    Are both green? I think one was gonna be made in g2 colors
    Are there differences in articulation?
    Do they appear to both be made well?
    Do we know if there are any price differences yet? If we do, what is it?

    I'm sure there are plenty of other questions to ask, but I just want to keep it to the facts on the difference between them. Thanks!

    Hercules is about 2 inches taller than Giant, if I remember correctly.

    Yes, both are going to be green. Maketoy is just releasing a yellow one first.

    Hercules has more finger articulation. Other than that, not sure.

    Yes, though both of the Hercules bots released so far have had bad QC/design issues on the initial run.

    Giant is about $140 per two bots and Hercules is about $100 per bot.

    Sweeet. Thanks man. Didn't they fix the QC problem with exgraver when they released the second one? (forgot the name). I also read someone that Giant's bots might not have wrist articulation? Just some things I heard floating around

    Giant has wrist articulation for sure. Just go here and compare the pics near the bottom and you'll see the wrists are in different positions.

    I believe he was referring to the individual bots wrist articulation, not the combiner.

    Oh.

    Well based on the pics most of them look like they have wrist articulation. Only one that probably doesn't is Hook because of the extra stuff near his wrists that wouldn't allow them to turn.
