    Looks like 2 Hercules!

    Those purple guns don't come with the rage kit.

    Four actually. Two complete rifles on back, two barrels under Hook, Rage Kit shoulders, and a set of shoulders for knees.

    Two Hercs with Rage Kits (one came with two sets) on eBay for $200/ea. plus two busted Scavengers for the guns (two on each forearm).

    Plus Crazy Devy LED head and purple Mixmaster barrel (the colour matches better in-person).

    Gonna pop on the purple PE CW hands once I find the set I have in storage...

    Bought mine about 1.5 years ago, got some stickers (not repro), still not applied. Imho, one of the best combiners ever.

    Does anyone remember a brown clear-coat someone used to add some brown tint to this guy?

    I could swear it was Herc. But it was basically a full figure spray of this stuff that toned down the green a bit and added some brown tint to it. Made it almost military looking.

    I have no memory of that, but I have seen people do paint washes with brown/rust colors to get a more real-world feel to the characters.

    It is a a pretty easy technique to do. Acrylic paints, thinned with water or acrylic thinner are easy to work with.

    Spurt Reynolds did one of the best paint jobs I've EVER seen on the Hercules bots:

    Ironically, I don't really care much for how the combined mode looks with the paint but the individual figures look SOOOO much better after some paint TLC from him.

    The best Hercules custom I've seen is GI Eddie's.

    OH jeez, can't remember the page but IIRC the fix is to disassemble the area around the port and put a rubber shim in there, in my case I cut one of those broad, flat elastics and folded it twice, reassembled then it worked perfectly.

    Genesis as Fretburn mentions is good, but I'd say YOTS Omega w/Amageddon upgrade kit is nigh spot on aesthetically
