Bonecrusher:


Hook:


Long Haul:


Mixmaster:


Scrapper:


Man, I gotta say, these look great. They homage their G1 characters so well but look Classics updated. Hook is probably my favorite.

Half of them look great, the other half is ehh.
exclusacon
Getting these just for the botmodes...
MegaHavok
I like them all except longhaul
Billzilla
I do like way the sculpts turned out, but it's still a pass from me for now.
Acid Wing
Awesome, but I think I still will be sticking with TFC's Hercules...unless colored protos convince me otherwise.
exclusacon
Long Haul looks like he suffers from Uni Ironhide look down problem...

But Scrapper is sexy....
Batman
These look pretty nice, would like to see them in color though.

They're all just posed looking down. I don't see why it can't look up.

Long Haul takes some getting used to. Let's fact it the G1 toy bot mode had to be abandoned. This sorta reminds me of half-movie style.

Hmmm, they look pretty sweet. Not digging Long Haul though, and scrapper looks a little odd.
Mixmaster, will yo marry me?
Sonscreen
Finally. Can't wait for more color shots and pricing.

Long Haul looks pretty bad

They look better than I expected they would. However I still much prefer the Hercules bots over these. The only way I'm gonna pic these guys up is if there in a non G1 color scheme so I can have some kind of G2 Devy
frilly toothpick
Long Haul looks weak, but the others look great. Especially Mixmaster.
Nemesis251
I love this Long Haul. Looks more intimidating as the muscle/bully of the group.
sodawilly
They look cool and all, but I'm still sticking with Hercules. I'm not keen on all of these designs for Giant, but they do look like me cool transformations.

Well thats cool but still unless the price is affordable it'll probably be a while. I am just in love with what TFC is offering so much more right now.
OMEGAPRIME1983
they look like good classics updates, but I was really hoping for a more G1 approach to them :/... Scrappers TF would have been a little better suite for BC if you ask me.
Wheelie
I couldn't care less for the individual bot modes. Once I get them they will be in Devastator mode always. Just waiting for them to be released in the original colours.

Strange how "Hook" and "Mixmaster" retain a good amount of their G1 appearances, while the other four deviate significantly ("Bonecrusher" and "Scavenger" not even having head designs particularly analogous to their original selves).

That said, I do like the robot designs on their own merits, which make them somewhat tempting in that regard.

But the full Hercules set does a better job of capturing the Constructicons' look in all of their modes, IMO.
Puffinator
It's interesting that this was a reveal when these pics were ready so long ago. Does this actually signify anything, like "coming soon" or something?
megatroptimus
Cool stuff, I like how the bot modes aren't too slavish to G1. It will make this Devy even more different than the TFC one.

Sooooo...if that is Long Haul....then who is Heavy Labor?

EDIT:My bad.....wrong set.
TENIME_art
I like them! If I can afford them, I'll get the yellow versions.

Really like the looks of Hook and Mixmaster, but the others don't look that great at all. Moot point since I went with Herc anyway.
hardreturn
i find these guys much more uneven than tfc's

they certainly have a couple that surpass herc's bots, a couple that are on par, one that's below and then long haul.

LH is a decent looking robot, but he does't look like a constructicon.
SPLIT LIP
I fucking love Long Haul. FINALLY somebody decide to move forward with the designs and try something different. Shame the rest look more or less like the same guy with some different kibble.

Best part, barely any combienr kibble. The lower arms and head, that's it. And teh arms turn into useful, practical accesories. Not just feet that are sort-of guns, or arm connectors as blocks of technology. They're little generators, from the looks of it. Something you'd naturally find at a construction site, possibly attached to one of the vehicles.
Valkysas
Hmm.

These are cool. Not perfect, but the designs are much more inspired than hercules' members, which all look pretty generic and flat.

Will be a happy purchase.

i get where you're coming from. i just never look at the constructicons as thugs. too me they've always been these scientists that happen to turn into a massive force.
phoenix88
I'm with Valhysas. thes indivual bots look loads more characterful than the Hercules components.

HEre's hoping for a reasonable price.

I do wish TFC's individual Constructicons had as much personality as these guys. TFC's guys are Energon/Cybertron-era stiff looking, whereas these guys have a better sense of Universe/Generations-style personality.

But in the end, I'm favouring TFC's more recognizable (but Classics-ish) updates, and their rendition of Devastator, in contrast, has more personality and weight behind him.
TrueNomadSkies
Definitely oogling Mixmaster, hah.
NexMortuus
I want this!!!! so badly!! i feel sorry about those who bought the hercules one and that want this i mean unless you have money then well ok lol
Traachon
These look way better than the TFC ones, no question about that for me. At least in bot mode.
Incepticon
TFC absolutely destroys these imo.
Keith Prime
Really liking the robot modes. ^_^

For those asking about price, that's been known since the Cherry Bomb Toy Show: roughly $50 each ($300 MSRP total) in the box set. A bit more in the pairs that release first (I think $136 a pair, but that may be contested). The pairs have more paint --possibly hazard stripes-- & something extra that has yet to be revealed.

For those wondering how close to release these are, the first 2 should be up for preorder anytime now, & out either this month or next.

The pairs will be G2 yellow. There may be a yellow box set, but info on that isn't as clear. There will be a G1 green box set. A box set is due out in February, but we aren't sure if it'll be yellow or green first.

Hawtsome!
Transbot90210
These things are oozing character.

I don't know what it is, maybe Long Haul, maybe the heads, but they feel like a super villian team.

Love em'
PyjamaPrime
is it just me, or is a picture missing? I only see 5 pics!!!
