    I was going to get the local version, but all the horror stories about domestic Trypticon convinced me to spring for Takara in the hopes that it won't come brokedown.

    With the possible exception of the transparent green bits maybe being lighter (and any hypothetical QC differences), I'm not seeing any appreciable changes between Hasbro and Takara Tryppy.

    (can't even tell if the movie-style Con symbols are fixed or not)

    Agreed! It needs to be big to justify the price difference :)

    Ugh, i've got this on preorder with AmiAmi, but i've already cancelled a few things with them and don't want to push my luck. I'm very disappointed that it appears to be identical to the Hasbro release.

    Even though I'm more of a toy-accurate guy, I was actually hoping that Takara's version of Trypticon would have that charcoal/near black color he did in the cartoon. That would've gave me a reason to get two Trypticons, just like any other CHUG figure. I'm disappointed to see he has little differences compared to the Hasbro version.

    I bet someone will let everybody know if there are some issues with the hips, the tail, and the chest door.

    Dumb question here folks: What would it take for the figure to have some electronics installed in him like his G1 counterpart ?

    Would it even be feasible ?

    Maybe if you got rid of the mechanism in the head for the titanmaster activated pop up nose gun you could fill some of the space with a battery and LED.

    When I spoke with the ladies at the Hasbro booth they did actually tell me that they and Takara had decided to not make different versions of Trypticon but to produce the same exact figures for all markets. Seemed a little strange thus I hadn't mentioned it but it does seem she was telling me the truth. Came out as I was telling her I had bought some of the Titans returns from Japan for the differences.

    Really nice woman had a very enjoyable chat about Transformers with her.
