    Presenting Trypticon!


    Thank you all who suggested I make Trypticon. I think this really works as a nice homage piece to a character that hasn't had a figure(nonsensical uni. legends don't count) since 1986. I had fun painting this guy, kind of sad I'll have to work on something else now.

    I plan on selling him(I need book money!) so please let me know if its a good enough quality to sell. Additionally, am I allowed to submit this guy to the Gallery? I don't know if approval is needed or....


    He was made from a D.I.C.E. Knightrex figure. He features 10 POA plus awesome sounds in both car and dino modes, respectively.

    The only mods were done to the feet to create better poseability, and the head, to fill in a gap left by the removal of a horn.

    Trypticon was painted with the following:

    Krylon Fusion Satin Black
    Krylon Fusion Grey Hammered Finish
    Krylon Metallic Silver
    Citadel Goblin Green
    Citadel Boltgun Metal
    Citadel Chainmail
    Citadel Liche Purple + Tentacle Pink
    Krylon Matte Finish

    Decepticon logos(badges? shields?) were printed on Avery labels then covered in contact and sealed with nail harder.


    As always, comments and criticisms are always welcome and appreciated.

    that hammered gray looks awesome, that's with no dry brushing?

    looking forward to seeing more

    added pics of the legs. Dry-brushed boltgun metal on to break up the monotony.

    Finished pics should be up tonight.

    I love this line you are doing! Great use of figues that didnt quite make it, though if they were released like this, they probably would have. Also, your painting looks wonderful, keep it up!

    Now that is cool on soooooo many levels!
    I especally like the paints you used on him!
    in his car mode, makes me think of G1 Trypticons Battle station mode!
    Great job!

    Wow, that was quick!

    This looks REALLY nice! Before you sell him, make sure you shoot a ton of photos for your gallery (simply review the gallery submissions thread that is stickied). :thumb
