Review: TFC Toys Not-Devastator Hercules Not-Scavenger Exgraver Figure

TFC Toys has released their first figure in the 6-figure Hercules series. The first figure is Exgraver, who has an uncanny resemblance to a certain construction team member from 26 years ago. Check him out in this review! You can also view the gallery below. Many thanks to forums member Puma for the images and the review!

I want to get this Figure but his head just looks so funky

Did you see they posted the entire production schedule for the remaining figures. So they are NOT going to be reusing molds, so each one will be unique. This one is going to be EPIC. I'm so excited. They are taking care of their fans especially with that announcement with the part that will be included with the Heavy Labor / Not Long Haul figure. From what I see I am convinced this is going to be the figure of the Decade. :thumb

ok guys, TFC toys has announced today that they are aware of the issue with Exgravers shovel. "the ratchets at the joint closest to the robot can actually break because its so tight".

So they have redesigned the part and will be including it with Heavylabor! So until you get heavylabor, be extra carefull with the one that came with exgraver!

Anyways, by them remedying the problem with exgraver, it has convinced me that they are taking this seriously and probably will not pull any funny business. So I have decided to jump on the Hercules bandwagon. :D

you'll be happy you did!

So this figure is pretty damn awesome. I have to say if Hasbro / Takara stamped their logos and name on this figure, I would have trouble knowing it wasn't made by them.

I am extremely happy with this figure and am very excited for the next 5. The price tag is the only thing I would say is a negative about this figure. My comment is I wish the other gun was Purple or maybe Black. I don't really like the clear red. I'm guessing that is some sort of Homage to the G2 version? Either that or they made use of the extra clear red plastic. I wonder if they will all have 2 sets of weapons like this guy. I have to do some editing on my review then I will share. If this figure is the standard that is set for this set, then I am glad I am on board.

Got mine today. Even after the review I have seen, he's larger than I expected. This figure has convinced me to start doing video reviews as well. :D

I was actually kind of selfishly hoping that the initial reviews of this guy would be really negative so I could safely ignore the set. Now I'm preparing to break my "No Toy Over $100" rule... SIX TIMES.

order it from Robot Kingdom with Heavylabor and you won't break that rule. Combined shipping shouldn't be too bad.

Good advice. Should be able to save quite a bit that way.

Normally, I'm able to rationalize away my desire to spend so much on toys, even on things I'd really like to have (City Commander, the Japanese version of MP Rodimus Prime, etc) but this is (Not) Devastator, and I suspect I'm in the same boat as a lot of my fellow fans who've always wanted a Devy to tower over all our other figs, and thus far all we've gotten from Hasbro is an okay repaint of a crappy Energon figure, and that... THING from ROTF.

City Commander is nice. i got lucky and preordered that before it became a hot item. I missed out on the first Crossfire set and ended up paying a lot for it after the fact. I'd imagine this set could fetch a lot in the next few years after the whole set is out. not sure how likely a box set of the 6 will be.
