    After a few weeks of work - my Trypticon is complete.

    Work-in-Progress thread - http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/radicons-customs/633788-trypticon-work-progress.html

    The base of the figure is a ZOIDS Gojulas Giga, the DoTM Ark playset, the Prime Driller, Optimal Optimus, and other parts. I've been wanting to work the cyberverse sets into a base bot of some kind.

    All of the ZOIDs mechanisms have been stripped. He's all ball joints and Optimal Optimus Shoulders.

    Brunt is make of the Ark, RoTF Bludgeon, and the Driller. He breaks apart to make the towers in city mode. His parts attach to each other and to the city via balljoints.

    Full-Tilt is made from a Legends Rodimus.

    The city mode has the tail sticking out, as the tip looks like a cannon. The tail can be removed, but I actually think this works. Brunt's tank treads support it.

    **Note - the pics are in different spots because the satin color used on the bot cannons kept throwing off my focus**

    Thanks everyone. It's great to see my customs improving each time in terms of complexity. The amount of balljoints, paint work, etc,,, on this far surpassed my Omega and I can see the reactions reflect it.

    The tracks wouldn't fit that kind of thing. One of the criticisms I received on another board was that the ramps were too steep to be realistic. Full-Tilt has no problems going down the ramps, but I don't think any car could go up that kind of incline.

    Here's some action shots!

    Very cool.
    The head shape /design reminds me of the xenomorph /Alien creature.

    This looks fantastic. The paint looks really crisp. And that ZOID is huge! The only thing that needs a fix are the ramps. They look really out of place in the overall figure. Try something else maybe?

    Yeah man...you really knocked it out of the park on this one!
    I would be proud to have something like this standing with my own collection.
    Very impressed right here!
