Nope, don't have a G1 Trypticon.

My mother-in-law picked one up for me today in Bathurst at the sale for $248. Will be there waiting for me in a fortnight when we move

Got mine last night, wow! Just wow!
Question for ye masses, (for those that have him) when you move the tail up and down does your tail lock in place, mine doesn't appear to...?

Is there some kind of trigger that locks the tail like the panels on his sides?

Not that I could find....

Mine is stable in dino mode, a little loose in the others... But in city mode he sits flat, and in space ship mode the legs hold it in place

Pics!

ROBOT MODE

Front view


Side view reveals an insane level of detailed sculpting


Rear view


Light piping. The eyes were the only place where I deliberately abstained from applying stickers. I think that the eyes look perfectly fine the way they are, and stickers would block out the light-pipe gimmick.


Nom! Nom! Nom!




Comparison with G1


BASE MODE





The Titan Master (Necro) can also connect with Trypticon's head.


CITY MODE







FULL-TILT

Vehicle mode


Driver's compartment


Robot mode (*Decepticon logo is a reprolabel)


NECRO^WIPE-OUT (*Decepticon logo is a reprolabel)

A shame that they didn't put more black on the robot mode, and they really should've just named it "Wipe-Out," since that's really obvious as to what it is. Either that or Tailgate. At least the head is black. Still, never thought I'd see the day when such an obscure character would actually have a toy! Well done, Hasbro.

Mine's left hip is gummy to the point of jammed.

I am sure someone mentioned a similar problem. How do you get into the hip and how do you fix it?

Thanks.
