    today I proudly present leader class classics Trypticon

    This was a collaboration with Misfitrobot he did the moding to the toy, and I did the paint job. We tried to include all the features the original G1 toy had and add elements from the TV show that were not included with the original toy. For reference here's a picture of the original G1 toy.

    MisfitRobot did the following;
    added lego connectors to the Zoids toy in 32 different spots
    created to unique transformations.
    created a transforming Cogg port.
    built Trypticon backpack from jet fired pieces.
    articulated each scale on the tail.
    created the tank from three separate toys.
    made custom stainless steel counter weights for the tail to maintain walking modes
    no magnets were used in any of the parts forming steps.

    Chibbywave;
    a spray paint base coat metallic black, Teal and purple
    used gunmetal, chrome silver, copper and several other mixed colors to detail figure, nose to tail
    use sealer to prevent damage to paint

    first up city mode!

    another feature in the G1 toy, the core combiners could transform into bases and then attached to Trypticon to form one large base.

    Now not only does the toy fully transform, once in dinosaur mode he walks! With two unique walking patterns each one with customized lights and sounds.

    Can't wait to see more pics. This looks awesome.

    I must say though... "rowers"? Not trying to be the grammar police, but I've never seen "roars" misspelled like that. Made me :lol

    It's well deserved Chibby. This really has come out great. the most intersting part that stand out to me is how the tail looks in city mode. It really look like the design cue was taken straight from Kaon. Very very nice.
