    Does his Herc arms and hands do anything when he's broken up to his gun components?

    The Herc arms have a handle which folds out, so they can be held by the individual Herc bots or mounted in their vehicle modes.

    With the 3 holes for the fist, they can kinda/sorta resemble a rocket launcher or something.

    I am assuming the same is true here, so you would be able to mount them in Peg holes on Metroplex.

    The hands though, will just end like robot versions of thing from the Adams Family ;)

    I'm having some issues with the hips holding poses. It kinda reminds me of the Herc sag, but only sometimes when posing him with those beefcake arms out in front.

    I think that robot looks like absolute crap..... but, I just bought this set. I want those big G1 style guns. I think the guns looks fantastic. I still have the before and after version on order - I love the robot mode on that one.

    I wish there were some high quality in hand pics to keep me going until I get it. ( no offense to the poster above, his pictures made me pull the trigger :)  )

    If anyone who owns this set also owns Perseus I'd love to see this guys forearms on Perseus instead of the ones he comes with. (failing that rage of Hercules gray forearms on this guy would be interesting to see too).

    I suspect a bit of parts juggling would look really good for all concerned.

    I also think due to the colours the whole set can be seen as an accessory set for Perseus anyway - so I suggest seeing if it's possible to fit the pieces on that toys' combined mode in interesting ways too - if only so as to make him look less like Hercules.

    I want to get behind this set but the repurposed Rage of Hercules arms look utterly, utterly out of place. Easy pass

    I wonder if you can combine this set with Perseus instead of Metroplex?

    The arms certainly look ideal for Perseus.

    The white is waaay too bright, and the red on GOW3 makes the perseus red look pink. I'll take some pics for you guys later tonight

    The forearms would work better with Perseus. ;)

    For those that wanted to see GOW3 on Perseus.... I tried to cram as much firepower as I could. The reds and whites are off between the two so it isn't a perfect match, but still looks cool as hell
