    I'll be dang impressed if they can make a Unicron that has a robot mode, sphere mode, and cube mode.

    With the popularity of Bakugan and BotBots seemingly doing well, HasTak should get in on this.

    52 Toys has slowly been rolling out figures that use more than one cube. A clever enough design team could do that to make Unicron.

    Bought. Also, one of these for Sky Lynx please?

    Hopefully this will help re-new interest in Tryp. I know it’s late to the game, but I’d love to see DNA do a kit for Titan Tryp like they’ve done for Scorpy.

    Yeah, I'll say I be liking these cube... thingymadoos. Personally I'd love a Metroplex, seems pretty reasonable. Makes sense with Trypticon anyway.

    Looking more closely at this cool little guy - I’d like to make a note/request to the Dr. Wu team:

    If possible, the figure would look better without a screw-hole in Trypticon’s head/snout. It’s always such a bummer on beast-sculpts when they have big holes in their heads (I’m looking at you SS86 Grimlock). If there’s time to do it, please try to avoid (or fill) the screw-hole in Trypticon’s head.

    Thanks :)

    Or we could request that they fix the problem before manufacturing? Seems like less work to be honest.

    I think he’s great, otherwise. But screw-holes are almost always an eyesore on beast-headed figures. It’s a problem we don’t normally have with regular bot heads, so I think designers forget sometimes with monster heads.

    We’ll be looking at Tryp’s head all the time, and if he’s got a big hole in it - then he doesn’t look as cool.

    I've been with BeastBox since the first wave of Raptors although I've not gotten every critter. I *will* be getting this one.

    DrWu loves their repaints, so will this get some? This would look stupid amounts of cool in their black&gray.
