    Fewer parts but he has a huge freaking horn on his snout Trypticon doesn't have. I don't know what he's compensating for, but I like it!

    He's from Beast Wars Second, not Neo. I *think* he retains his motors, but not 100% sure. He does lack the tank, Brunt, though, which means his base mode lacks the towers and the huge cannon.

    Odd a topic like this should pop up today; I spent almost all day dismantling, cleaning and Reprolabelling my G1 Trypticon.
    Hell of a job; there's a lot of him. I still have an entire side to do.
    As for Gigastorm, I believe he does have the motor, yes; but nothing else from what I've heard. Still one hell of a nice toy, though.
    (G1 Trypticon = my favourite TF toy of all time)

    There's a car that straps to his belly. And yeah there's a motor in there. You can chase the cats with Gigastorm just fine. In fact, now that I have wood floors he should work even better.

    Been considering picking this guy up, but I actually want to get ahold of a G1 Trypticon eventually (I have a thing for citybots >.>).

    I'd be very happy with Gigastorm, but I'd probably have to import and the shipping charge alone is enough to scare me off.

    I just picked up an original Brunt to go with my Gigastorm.

    Everything works and fits like it should.

    Yea, he comes with mainly just the robot, with a giant spike on his nose, and some different paint apps but he does walk still. It's ok if you can find it for around like 50ish, but if not, treat yourself and buy the real thing.

    Awesome! I got mine for $30 and want to outfit him like the original. Glad to know that it's possible.

    I like the Gigastorm deco much better than the original.
