Structor is a third-party Transformer and an homage to the Constructicon Scrapper. He combines with the other toys in his line to form Hercules, an homage to Devastator. He is the third member of the group to be released.
Structor has high strength, intelligence and skill. He has below average speed and firepower. He is the highest ranking Hercules team member, so he is probably their leader.
Other third-party Transformer Scrapper homages include Maketoys Wheel Loader.
The project that would become Hercules was first teased as EX-004 with an outline picture in October 2009.
Prototype photos of Structor released on the internet compared him to a leg of the Star Rescue Team combiner.
Structor was previewed at the Third Party Panel at TFcon 2011.
Reprolabels released a sticker set in 2012 that makes Structor look more like Generation 1 Scrapper.
In December 2012 Robot Kingdom released comparison photos of Unique Toys War Leo and War Hawk with TFC Toys's Structor and Classic Ultra Magnus.
