    Im thinking about getting a BW II, neo or what ever Gigastorm........

    Can anyone recommend against it, or for it? I just dont want to try to track down a G1 trypticon and this seems like a good alternative

    It's pretty cool, but half of the fun of the old bases was all the little parts you plug into them in base mode. So you're missing out on that if you get Gigastorm instead of Trypticon.

    Im buying one. He looks cooler than trypticon (love the horn), but as has been said, it sucks he doesn't come with all the parts.

    i figure i can buy extra parts over time....... they always seem to be on ebay.

    what about sticker wise? should i pony up foR reprolabels set or will it not make that much of a difference?

    I am wondering the same thing. Gigastorm for $89.99 or try for a Trypticon? I cannot decide.

    I'd skip him and get Trypticon. Still I would have bought Gigastorm a few years back when he was like 40 bucks MISB, Korean I think. Liqdeal had him at the that price.

    At his current asking price, I think Gigastorm is a bit too expensive. But then, the Trypticon I used to have a few years ago was such a bargain, even a Gigastorm back then would have been a bit much. For somewhere around or under $40 shipped, I got a walking Tryppy with all the parts on his head, Full-Tilt, 3/4ths of Brunt, but no ramps or other bits. Wish I kept it... :(

    I forget, does Gigastorm have the electronics that let him walk?

    WHAT?! Yeah, if he's missing everything, I'd just try to get Trypticon. Had him as a kid. He was awesome!
