    Well that's... a leg.

    It also looks like you don't need to remove Sixshot's head for transformation due to the way the helmet works, that's nice.

    Anyone with some photoshop skills can extrapolate a Trypticon height from that leg, assuming the overall body shape is the same as G1 Trypticon? I'm pretty excited, it looks like it'll be able to hangout toe to toe with Gen Metroplex and that is what I really want.

    oh man, Trypticon's leg.

    I've been on the fence on getting Fort Max because he's got too much Metroplex left over, but Trypticon will be a day one preorder, unless they ROYALLY screw something up, but so far so good.

    Prime Wars Trilogy is a series of three toy lines. Starting with Combiner Wars and now we are on its sequel series Titans Return. There should be one more line sometime in 2018.

    Presenter asked something on the lines of whether we'll see Hot Rod. Answer: Hasbro is in the middle of the Prime Wars Trilogy. Hot Rod is a prominent character.

    That Trypticon leg is better playset then the entire Fort Max city mode:lol !

    [​IMG]

    I came to notice after seeing Sky Shadow playset mode that excpet for Blaster, all the Titans Return playsets are lame and weak:/. But that gives me hope again that Trypticon would have a wonderful playset mode as he should have*-*!

    Well it sounds like IDW has been releasing comic tie ins but for the most part its just a toy based trilogy.

    Nah. He just stated overall that Hot Rod toy is there because the presenter sounded like he likes the character. :)

    Sooooo...overlord pretty much confirmed then. Trypticon is looking good. Also, is it just me, or does that Optimus prime voice changer resemble the marvel legends props and black series storm trooper helmet more than the usual has brought voice changers, maybe we'll see some collector centric toys for this movie?

    Hasbro showed us his silhouette back at SDCC, that's about as confirmed as it gets :D 

    wow, that is looking good.

    very impressed with so much that Takara/Hasbro is doing right now, Despite everyone being Headmasters, so much of it looks soooo good, that trypticon leg looks great. cant wait to see both toys standing next to each other.

    Trypticon looks like he''ll be fittingly huge. from the looks of his legs.

    looking at this, I'd imagine he'll be about the same Height as Devastator (who comes up to Metroplex's Elbow) but with Fort Max/Metroplex's bulk (his nose-to-tail length will likely be similar to Metro/FMs height ~ heh, which means he's probably gonna be a pain to put on a shelf, LOL)

    Yeah, is this all else they're doing, or will there be a brand panel too?
