    Six-Gun update to Metroplex, in all of his parts forming glory. for those of you who don't remember a collection of extra city parts and cannons went together to form a an additional robot for Metroplex. This is my Classics version of the double-barreled gunslinger.

    This is a project I'm working on with chibbywave

    We're making both Metroplex and Trypticon. Our plan is to put them both on Ebay when we finish,they are intended to be a set. Tryicon does walk, just like his G1 toy, and both will be full triple changers. I hope you enjoy this preview, I will give an update when I finish the accessories and transformations.

    Great choice for both characters! I'm amazed I've never thought of using Gojulas Giga for Trypticon.

    Both of these look great. I can definately see trypticon out of that zoid but i just cant picture him transforming while maintaining the walking mechanics. Ive gotta see this thread all the way to the end

    AHHH, a Gojulas Giga with preserved electronics AS a transforming Trypticon has been on my long-term commission master list for a LONG time!

    I will watch this thread eagerly, and I'm going to start planning ahead to bid the snot out of this auction if the final product turns out well!

    dammit, you took my idea on trypty....

    never thought of using primus for metroplex, that I might have to copy now.

    But yeah, I'd been talking to a friend about using gogulas for Trypty for ages, been hoarding weapons just so I can make a run at it. I do have the extra big cannons for him, though the boosters from treadbolt make good sense......I can't wait to see how you do yours.

    No way is that Gojulas going to be able to walk after being a triple changer. It's a great figure to use.

    I don't think you realize who you're talking to. I am the three-time robot fighting Champion! I normally build combat robots so upgrading a walking toy to handle a little more wait will be a piece of cake.

    I'm switching out the motor with the new high torque motor and I'm changing the heavy alkaline batteries over to a lithium polymer battery, there much lighter.

    here's a video of my heavyweight destroying a 220 pound robot in four seconds

    YouTube - ‪Robogames 2006 Final Verdict vs Sir Loin‬‏

    and this is when I won my third gold medal with my 1 pound robot "The Bomb"

    HAHA! I knew from the way you were talking that you were up for the job, nay-sayers are just small-scale thinkers. I've had a few plans for how to preserve the mechanism while adding transformation for a long time, and with your background, I can definitely see how it would be within your skillset to pull it off

    I ABSOLUTELY am going to be making a hard-core run at this puppy when it goes up for auction, can't wait to see how it turns out!!

    Gojulas is a perfect platform for Trypticon, and Gojulas Giga kicks ass as is.
