    I'd like to see how that works out, as you'll only be spending more money when Giant will still cost less.

    Giant will always look better, however, as he was designed to look the way he does...Hercules was not designed to look G1 accurate, so this add-on kit sticks out like a sore thumb...just as much his black blades and plows sadly.

    Because of the obvious size difference........you want a bigger Devastator with treads up? Now you have that option. Simple ain't it?

    In your opinion of course........with treads up he looks alot more g1, it can't be disputed. You don't like that extra bulk then cool.....others will and do.

    If you say so. Plenty of people will disagree with you though.

    I wouldnt say he's trolling so much as stating his (strong) opinion which we are all entitled to...no one said you all had to agree :) 


    Especially in this thread :lol

    Yes, assuming that Hercules isn't hunched over due to QC issues in the crotch, right? ...just kidding :)

    Oh, I assumed if you had an opinion it was trolling. Sorry. Seali's whining as much gave me that impression.

    That's true! Now hop on Giant's thread and say how much better Herc is than Giant! :lol

    For those who've already purchased Hercules, sure. But in response to what I was referring to "this kit stealing customers from Giant," I'd like to see how this works out as price is what a lot of folks here keep saying is keeping them away from buying Hercules.

    It isn't simple, as simple as you say it is.


    Every post here is the original poster's own opinion(s), no?

    I never said it would look more G1, I said it wasn't designed to be G1 accurate, so it'll never look as good as Giant.

    I don't dispute the extra size this kit will obviously give Hercules.

    One reply makes me a troll, huh?:lol

    I'm not sure why people have a problem with Wu's new face...it looks so much more masculine than the stock face

    I think the issue is that the changes are kinda minimal and Wu's prices are what many would consider to be a little high for what you get. I agree with you, I dig the face, but I probably won't spend the coin on it. I'd rather give you my money.

    Giant isn't necessarily G1 accurate either. Its redesigned. Herc is more or less IDW's design as stated way back somewhere in this thread (no I'm not looking for it). So you prefer a G1-ish look. That's your preference. Saying Herc "will never look as good as Giant" is not really stating your opinion so much as it is coming off as making a declarative statement.

    No one will agree with you here no matter how much you try to input your "declarative statement." But not to say you can't say it. And FWIW, I also purchased Giant. Not because I think it looks better than Herc, but because I like its design AS WELL AS Hercules' design. Both have their merits in my opinion, and they're both different. And to me, neither looks "better" than the other primarily because they are BOTH DIFFERENT and meant to BE DIFFERENT from the other.
