So imagine my surprise when I open up the Rage of the Hercules and start to compare. First off, I didn't realize it was a completely different head! I knew about being able to switch out the mouth plate, but I hadn't paid enough attention to notice that his replacement head is much more G1 inspired now (at least one of his G1 heads). His rifle is also a much better replacement for the six individual guns that formed the prior rifle. And the forearms and shoulder extensions make for a much more imposing Devastator. He seems taller and bulkier up against any other figures, which as I've said before, is how it should be. Devastator was always the most powerful combiner, so it makes sense he should tower over everything on my classics shelf.
|New head on the left. Much better.|
|He really captures the G1 Devastator look now, the forearms make such a difference.|
Finally, a bit of humor on the part of TFC. I noticed this while checking out the poster that came with the set.
Apparently they are getting annoyed at people confusing Chinese characters with Japanese characters, lol.
