    I actually like this poll better than the other, as it shows that you can like both molds, and it doesn't need to be as "standoff-ish" and "camp vs camp" as many of the Giant and Herc threads end up becoming. They are both great designs and, whether you prefer one over the other or are getting both, there is no need to bash either one.

    I agree with the point about TFC and MakeToys being ballsy enough to go through with these projects. They deserve a lot of credit for giving the TF community what they have been asking for for what seems like forever... MORE COMBINERS PLEASE!!!


    As far as polls go, all you can do is come up with valid options for voters to choose from and hope that you get a good turn out. Once you post the poll and options, its pretty much at the mercy of the participants/nonparticipants to decide how valid, useful or acurate the info turns out to be.

    +1.

    Don't get me wrong, Herc is looking more and more fantastic with each passing day. Never thought I'd complain about getting a Devy TOO big (with a price tag to match)

    I'll take 1 green and 1 yellow giant please. I'm not sure how strong the connections are, but I feel like hercules will mostly be in his default pose because of the weight of the arms don't really allow for much poseability. The smaller weighted and sized giant should be okay, hopefully.

    Good point. I guess we'll find out when we're able to get them in-hand (so as long as TFC stops with the delays....)

    I'm still not sold by any of them because while the combined mode of the toys look good, the individual bots IMO aren't that good.

    Yellow Giant only for me for the following reasons;

    It will be in scale with my Bruticus and Superion, and if the rumours are true, Menasor.
    Yellow construction vehicles look better to me than light green ones.
    He just looks so much more aesthetically pleasing to me than Hurc.
    $$$$$$$$$$!

    One thing I do feel the need to bring up, I see a lot of Hurc supporters bashing Giant for partsforming, but judging by the review I've seen of Exgraver, Hurcs hands are seperate pieces that hang off the back of the individual robots in quite ridiculous fashion, wheres it appears that Giants forearms and hands actually transform into construction equipment. So I'm not really sure why that's being used as a negative.

    Good point with regards to the scale but my concern is the combined form such as the strength of the connectors and how the articulation of the figure. I may back track if review for the combined form is good.
