    Yup, that's Hercule's face. I bought a "Rage of Hercules" upgrade set for my TFC Hercules, so I had an extra face.

    Did you have to mod the face in any way to get it to work?

    Yes lots of cutting involed on both faces to get them to fit, but once cut, everything sits flush and glues right in place.

    I still need to grab some HQ pics for that guy.

    I'm considering getting Prometheus and I have a regular Hercules face. How much would a custom job like this normally cost?

    If anyone is in the market for Prometheus let me know. I have to sell off a chunk of my collection including this set (with Reprolabels).

    Stickers only applied to Gumball...if I don't have any luck selling the set, I may end up selling them out one at a time (Red Cross, Hydrant, Streetwise, and Verti-Aid don't have any stickers applied yet). I'll let you know...

    Please & thank you!

    I haven't finished him yet because of lack of funds, but I'm hoping to eBay a bunch of stuff in the next couple weeks.

    Also, if you split it up, I may be interested in the stickers. I was going to get all of them, but so far only have Gumball.

    I normally hate reprolabels, and am definitely skipping all of the robot mode stickers, but I actually prefer busy gris-gris on rescue vehicles and race cars.

    Oh, I would think Home Depot lowes or ace hardware. They are a 3M adhesive I think. Maybe even 3M's website.

    You bet. Also, for the quick fix, you can use electrical tape. It's the same stuff only thinner and a bit more difficult to work with.

    I found electrical tape not very effective at all. So these are the same pads that came with Prometheus?

    Pretty much. It's just a simple rubber pad.
    Instead of putting the tape on the feet, you could always purchase V-Groove Corrugated Runner | Rubber Runner | Runner Matting | Shelf Liner Matting by allMATS.com and line the shelves. This way every figure stays put, no worries of tape residue on the feet, and since a shelf liner doesn't need to be sticky at all, you don't need to worry about damaging your shelves.

    That's really smart. I'm gonna give that tape a try tomorrow and see if it works.
    Thanks man!
