    Ya know....I just had thought about this....

    Are they going to KO Ares too? :D  If so, I might be interested to see how that one works out.

    ^^Seems like that'd make sense. How long has Herc and Uranos been out? May be awhile, but KO Ares and Prometheus would be interesting....

    We should make that it's "official" name. Put it in the thread title and everything.

    I believe the "high quality" adjective is to differentiate this from the other KO Herc. Maybe change the title to "higher quality KO" instead of "high quality".

    I have to wonder if it is mistransformed or not. Enough to let someone else bite first, but not enough to tune out yet.

    Incidentally, do we know if this is oversized or not? A vaguely MP-scaled Prowlestator approximation would be the best thing ever.

    Price depending I'll pick one up and keep it in combined mode. The chances of the rumored Titan Class Devastator being real are slim to none so this will do nicely. Hopefully he'll be a similar size to the CW gestalts.

    Well, the Taobao converts to about $20 US dollars plus shipping, but you have to remember that you can buy an entire original Hercules on Taobao for about $270 plus shipping.

    Still, in the end even with shipping and paying the middlemen, you can probably get this guy for about the same or less than one real TFC combiner member!

    I preordered it. I've nearly bought the real Herc a few times, but talked myself out of it because it's not nearly "right" enough for the price. 120RMB is a much easier pill to swallow. So if it's released on the 10th, I should have it around the 12th-13th. It should work as a good placeholder until something better comes along (keeps fingers crossed for Titan class Devs.) Between MP Skywarp, MP Magnus, and this, I think I'm done for January already.

    From Taobao (I'm in China) and it was 120RMB, including shipping.

    I emailed him about it, he says he is definitely getting it... So it's on my wishlist. Gonna customize it into my mp Devastator... Something I wouldn't do with an "official" TFC devastator.
