Perseus (TFC Toys)
Perseus is an homage to the Shattered Glass Constructicons. Although his mold is identical to that of Hercules, he is depicted with the limbs swapped left to right from Hercules usual configuration.
According to his tech specs Perseus is among the strongest of Transformers. He also nearly fearless and packs impressive firepower. He skill and endurance is slightly above average, but he is a bit slow, both physically and mentally.
In March 2012 a poll was held on behalf of TFC Toys on the TFW2005 forums asking what the recolor of Hercules should be. The winner was "Shattered Glass".
In May 2012 a teaser image of a Shattered Glass Hercules recolor was posted on the Planet Iacon Facebook page.
In August 2012, TFC Toys displayed the first example of a Shattered Glass inspired Hercules recolor called Perses.
Robot Kingdom and TFC Toys later confirmed the name of the toy was Perseus.
