Really wonderful run of posts here! It’s so awesome to see collectors encouraging other collectors despite their differences or the odds against them. That’s one of the main things I really love about these boards. By showing an appreciation for our hobby, we show an appreciation for each other. Corny, I know, but still true. Barry and Large are gentlemanly scholars. I also want to throw in my support for Optimugatron and other board members who wishes to find new ways to express themselves and discover a deeper appreciation for what we do. I know the boards have done that for me and it makes me proud to be a collector. And now to thank the Bot responsible for starting this conversation.
Broadside, we salute you!
Hey, treat other like you'd like to be treated right? There's worse maxim's to live by.
Moody boy ftw! LG version totally kicking the other lad's arse though.Or shooting him in the head. Whichever comes first.
So, who else here picked up a Trypticon yesterday?
My Ollies hasn't gotten him yet, but I picked up mine a couple months ago off Amazon for $100. That was a reasonable price for me considering I paid full price for Fort Max and Devastator (plus upgrade kits, stickers, etc). I fear I will have to pay aftermarket prices someday for Metroplex. I almost got the the LG reissue, but that chrome face turns me off.
Thanks to everyone for the kind words of encouragement. I will try to live up to the hype, lol.
He is a great bot! I just finished putting the Reprolabels on mine, and love him even more now!
Speaking of reprolabels, are there any reprolabels or deco tips for Trypticon's little buddy Full Tilt... I love him, he's fantastic and a great mold/design, but he's... very very solidly purple.
ToyHax has a set of labels which is currently 40% off.
theres a label set for full tilt all his own
Yes there is and it completes him. I posted these pictures a year ago but it’s still one of my favorite photo shoots.
Oh man! that looks great!!! totally transforms that guy.
Yep, that's pretty much exactly what I was looking for. Just ordered myself a set, thank ye.
I don't have an ollies around me so I'll likely never find it for a price that good.
Oddly enough I really just want full tilt and necro...trypticon would've been the bonus for me
has Hun-Grrr been officially released to the public yet?
Yes. Unfortunately, Hasbro's rotten distribution means it's a gamble if you'll find him in your local brick-and-mortar. I suggest buying him online.
A few months ago they only shipped them to a few stores.
I think stores underordered on purpose since they think those bumblebee movie toys will make tpns of money.
I just want the Full Tilt
I picked up Trypicon tonight.
Overall I am impressed with the size and the robotic detailing all over him.. Full Tilt with Necro is an awesome little bot on his own. I probably wouldn't have picked it up if not for the sale at Ollies, but I am happy to have him.
The stickers are kinda bad though. Some of them tore when I was pulling them off the sheet. Also I wish Hasbro would make the instructions easier to read. Only applied like half of the stickers so far.
