    A Legends Class Devastator (No, not the ROTF one, I want a G1 one)? YES PLEASE!!! Lord Megatron needs ways to destroy Metroplex.
    Why do we still love third parties again?

    So people that didn't want the huge one could have one for a desk or small space?

    I'd love some cheaper action super detailed master combiners, I mean if I have a combiner most of the time he's in combined mode.

    I wish they would have made more in Robot Heroes before it ended too.

    Only $70 per limb! Plus Rage add-on.

    I'm kidding.

    I hope.

    Yeah I was thinking they might be trying to tap into people that don't have the cash to throw into the large one as well.

    You know, I said for a while that a lot of the TFC toys were big simply to be big and that they could have easily gone down a size class and keep the same complexity...

    All kidding aside though, if they kept the same engineering in just a smaller scale it would let them save almost all of the original design budget and let them out this out on the cheap. I could easily see this being under $150 all told.

    Or they could charge $400 for the set...

    Then we rant and rage...

    Then we start making excuses...

    Then we start justifying...

    Then get angry at anyone who says it's too much...

    Then we preorder the whole set...

    We need a size comparison of some sort! How about place your average Generations Legends figure next to him?

    I am genuinely SHOCKED that no one has made an Austin Powers "mini me" joke yet.

    I'd be interested in a legends scale Herc.

    My issue is that there are so many areas of third party TF productions that are getting saturated - first combiners, now Dinobots that it would further show the lack of imagination of these third parties if they were to saturate the legends scale offerings.

    Full-sized Herc is too big for my bookcase at work (I tried). I'd love a smaller one that I could have there.

    Ironic you say that, because it so happens the full-sized Hercules is your profile picture.

    Not necessarily.

    But you can NEVER have enough Legends-scale figures! And you can NEVER have enough toys!!!

    You got me thinking...what if, you used mini Herc limbs and Dr. Crank, but used regular size HL as the torso! :rock 

    Too big? :D
