    I guess they are just that polite.

    Yeah, the eyes are just normal gold stickers now unlike the G1 release which was vacuum metal. It actually makes the figure look really cheap now in the face and it's a terrible change: Differences between G1 Trypticon and Hasbro G1 Reissue Platinum Trypticon - Transformers

    And yes, as someone said, there is a difference in the battery cover as well.

    Not all G1 versions had vac metal eyes, such as mine which had stickers.

    That G1 is Hasbro or Takara?

    Yeah, and that price is pure CRAP. It's worth $140.00 at the MOST and what I'm really hoping for is $120.00 or less.

    With it looking like Trypticon winning the Hasbro Titan pole there isn't a tremendous need to shell out big bucks on retro. So I will wait until the price is right. if the price is never right, (shrugs) then they can keep it.

    And purchased. I could probably have lived without him at the $165 price but $120 is much closer to what I was expecting when he was first announced. It will be nice to finally have Typticon and Metroplex on the same shelf.

    Purchased. Was hoping for $99 but I also would like money to grow on trees and for every MP figure to be readily available whenever I want at a reasonable price. So yeah, I will bite at $118.

    I went with the impulse and got him... After shipping it worked out to about $200 AUD, which is half of what TRU is selling him for. Still not sure if I'll have buyer's remorse later..

    If you do, I imagine it will be pretty easy to offload him to another fan and recuperate most of the cost. At least that's what I told myself. ;)

    Got it as well, thanks to the news post. Thanks!

    Gotta say, I'm pretty jazzed to get him. Trypticon was always one of those weird gaps in my collection... I never had him as a kid, didn't really know anyone else who had him, and never got around to picking him up as an adult. I don't think I've ever even fiddled around with him at a convention or anything. So he's essentially a brand new G1 toy for me, which gives me quite a warm and fuzzy feeling of anticipation.

    Bummer missed out on him at that price. Also after hearing about some of them with dinged up boxes coming in a lil hesitant there. Even at that price if he was dinged up Id be ticked.
