    Not sure how big an impact this guy had on Transformers, but it still sucks that he's gone, especially in such a tragic way. RiP Gori-san.

    RIP Mr. Gori. :cry 
    It was just this morning, I was reading an article about Trypticon and it was Mr. Gori who had brought the Japanese Trypticon to life during the Zone OVA series.

    Minor fix: I assume he died in 2010, not 2009.
