    That's actually not bad. I'm still holding out hope that it will unexpectedly be yellow/black instead of yellow/purple. If so, I may go for the yellow version instead of the green. If the green is coming as expected of course.

    Hercules 100% and if it comes out in yellow I will have that too. Size always matters. I just pray we get a KO oversize Hercules.

    Seems like from the poll, assuming 121 votes is closely related to fandom's entirity (which probably, it's not)

    1. A fair amount of people will be waiting for reviews before purchase (makes sense. Its an expensive third party item. The most expensive probably to date)

    2. A substantial amount of members are committed to Hercules, with some reasons being Hercules being first to be released compared to Giant, and thus got some committed.

    3. Very few people within the group are interested in the yellow giant more than the green.

    The way I look at it, having a vastly different looking yellow Dev with my Nu-G2 collection is a nice way of expanding the collection without just having a repaint.

    29-26 (only Herc vs only Giant) is much closer than I thought it would be considering the earlier release of Herc and those who purchased already have a bot in hand.

    Of course these polls are very far from accurate since not everyone participates, but interesting none the less.

    I went in blind on Herc. Sure we know they look great but how well do they really conenct. Oh well fingers crossed that Hercules works out in the end or I'm out $600 on a combiner and will e left with 6 robots only :( 

    Giant. I want to buy him and will most likely buy him IF he comes in green. Because of the going in blind with Herc, I can not afford to do so twice. Reviews on this guy will sell me on him. But to be honest I get the feelign Giant is goign to work a lot better in Devi mode than Herc will. It just seems to be a much tighter/better fit in combined mode.

    The two polls are asking different things, and are not comparable data. I hate polls myself, but I created this one knowing many people are curious.

    The Herc vs. Giant poll is just asking if you can only choose one (this assumption isn't always the case), which would you choose?

    This poll was meant to ask each member their decision as to what to do with the choices 3rd parties offered for us on Devy currently. So one is a preference "who is better", this one is asking the facts (or hopefully): What are you buying?

    @TFAO: its true, the poll can't get more accurate anyways with the limitations of the system ^^; this IS voluntary poll afterall and comes with all the disadvantage for one.

    I'm not concerned about articualtion. They will both have shoulder, elbow, knee, ankle and head. Call me easy but that will be more than enough for me on a combined mode combiner. I also don't doubt that both figures will hold well on the arms and leg connections. The one doubt I have is the conenction beween Long Haul and Hook. It doesn't appear to be the greatest on Herc and seems more solid on Giant. Once again I am buying both and I am not saying one is better than the other, this is just a concern.

    If fact, I am still in awe that we are getting two Devastators. Not only that but they are two completely different looking Devastators and yet they are both very much G1 Devastator. It's a great, if not expensive, time to be a hard core lover and collector of Transformers, G1 and Classics.

    Only Herc so far for me. May get a green giant down the road, too soon to tell though.

    to be fair, most of the pictures we've seen of Herc with a clear view of the point of connection between HL and DC have been thrown together mock-ups with blue tack filling in the joints...i really can't imagine they'd do a bang up job on all the other connections and then half a$$ the main chest point holding the entire top portion to the lower section...

    unrelated to that ^, i really wish Giants forearms were more uh, giant, cause the rest of him, for the most part, is bada$$...

    Don't know if everyone remember back when Hercules was first developing:

    TFC said they made a modified energon port (redesign, based on that), that's stronger. I assume that's what they are using.

    from this pic you can see the 4 points (bigger circles) where heavylabor connects to dr.crank and a possible further two places, looks like it will be pretty solid connection wise

    Not sure, as much as I want to have Devestator in my classics display, I likely will wait for reviews on each and possible price drops as I really can't afford either at this point. :(

    I'm not saying that either connection point will suck. In fact I hope they BOTH are awesome. It is merely a small concern but thanks for the pics, it seems like they are going as far as thay can to make this thing connect as good as possible.

    Green Giant for me. I prefer the smaller scale and am really in to the look. Herc just leaves me cold in comparison.
