    I liked his...err..makeup. :lol  *"Camo" type*

    That's the closest representation after G1 Trypticon, unless some KO Makers are planning on "reissuing" him.

    I'm not against KO's, but I would want a Trypticon reissue from Hasbro or Takara.

    If either decide to put it out.

    Damn! Sweet haul, I think this guy only came with Full Tilt(the little car that plugs onto the chest), not all the shit that Trypticon had.

    Edit: yup, Gigastorm - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    You can see Full Tilt's back left wheel in the picture. He's dusty, but complete.

    In an interesting coincidence, I actually had both these guys out tonight.

    I think I prefer the BW2 version - the G1 version looks plain to me these days. Gigastorm has a bit more personality to him.

    I remember going to J. M. Fields picking up a brand new Trypticon. That was back in 1987.

    When you put both side by side like that, yeah, G1 does look a bit plain. But both are awesome in their own way.

    I like how the black on Gigastorm makes it look like he's wearing a bandana.
