    After playing with Energy Dragon I kinda wish the Trypticon also had a cube form. It'd be like a Borg ship. :D

    I'm so excited for this. My Very First Third Party Figure! I can't wait for a Dr Wu Cube Metroplex (is it confirmed to be happening yet?)

    Man Battle Damaged just looks like normal Trypticon, which makes the regular release just look so very very bizarre by comparison.

    I am very, very tempted to get this, but only if we know for sure a Metroplex will be coming as well. It would just be weird to me having Trypticon without his nemesis.

    I've owned several Trypticon toys, never a Metroplex. Embrace Decepticon supremacy.

    Just get it. It's a fun figure to play with all by itself. It's possible that by the time they ever do a Metroplex Trypticon could be sold out at most places. Then you'll end up paying more for it.

    Here's a quick lil review of Dr Wu's Battle Damaged Energy Dragon that DW shared on their feed... https://weibo.com/1088900641/MrKalAZbU

    Now, while I'm interested in what a DW Metroplex--and their recolors--might look like, I got Energy Dragon because I love Beastformers, and Dinos/Kaiju in particular.

    Tho, the funny thing is that I put a preorder for the Battle Damage deco at ShowZ first, and then ordered the regular when I realized it wasn't quite as bright a white in spots as the initial promotional photos displayed.

    But, I wasn't honestly sure if I was gunna keep my BD ED preorder last week, and was considering just losing that dollar deposit and waiting for the Dark Deco, which I think might be the nicest of the lot to me.

    However, I paid it off just to add a lil more to my growing lil Trypticon fighter escort for MasterMade's Diabolus Rex. ^v^

    That was a nice review... I wish that I was able to utilize the spring-loaded missile gimmick but being that neither one of my missiles can actually retract I don't see how it would be possible. Anyone else have this issue?

    That's a shame as you need to retract them for cube mode. I had an issue with one of them. I posted about it and how I fixed it about a week ago. Scroll back a page or 2 and you will see how I fixed mine. It's a simple thing where you need to adjust the plastic spring inside just a very small amount.

    I got the battle damage version in but the (turpentine?) smell is insane. Anyone have experience with removing the smell from bots with this type of treatment? I put him in a box with baking soda. I kinda want to wash him with water, but I’m not sure whether that’s so smart.

    I only ever had that smell once from my instructions to DX9's War In Pocket Sonic Wizard, and I just left those in their box in a crawl space... for some months... xD

    Put it in a bag with a bar of Ivory soap. Can remove most any smell. (then once it has a clean soapy smell, just let it air out and it'll dissipate into no smell at all)
