    Make Toys has made a phenomenal entrance. Dat everything. I wasn't sold on the Armor, but now I know why it costs so much. I do hope that the armor isn't off color with the United version. The not-fallen? That think is pure amazing looking in detail and size. Giant? I need to see more of the bot modes before I pass full judgement, but right now the two they have shown off sit better with me than TFC's stuff.

    Visor visor visor. G1 Devy was off-model all the time, so go with his TFTM look.

    really? Man, I don't like it... PLus, i think for that look, Hercules fits more of the AHM series.

    So far everything I have seen from Maketoy has blown Fansproject out of the water. Their toys actually look like Transformers!

    while although im buying Hercules. The Giant figure is awesome. I like that they have so much great detail and robot modes are really nice. While it is really neat how they managed to find a way to make the formarms a part of their equipment in a towed generator it looks like, that was what made hercules better choice for me. Hercs arms are just better in my point of view.

    I never liked loose parts. Id say though if you dont mind the loose parts for the hands and fists then Giant is a better detailed figure.

    It would be great to see these two reviewed side by side.

    Still don't see why someone thought the Fallen's original Pat Lee design, complete with marshmellowy limbs and tiny head (I can't even see the slits in his faceplate) should be turned into a toy. I am perfectly fine with the Titanium version.

    Giant also did not impress me - Hercules is bigger, better, and the individual bots more closely resemble the G1 toys, especially in robot mode.

    wow. this version of Devastator is much better than the TFC one and the head needs the visor. The only thing is that if they release the yellow version first I will not be getting it til it is green like the G1 toy.

    its not an if. Yellow version IS the first one that will be released, AND it will come with bonus parts that the gift set (green version) will NOT have.

    WHat they mean is that the core figure (RTS G2 Optimus) is an official product. That is to say that their upgrade kit is a supplement to an official product, rather than a competing product.
