    Ever since I saw him on TV and in various catalogues, I have been a huge Trypticon fan. As a kid I watched the cartoon and was very impressed by him. Trypticon was just enormous. There was nothing that was bigger than him. Well except for Unicron, but I wasn’t aware of his existence until I saw the movie. When I was older, I always resented that the creators made him a big, stupid and easy to defeat Transformer. He had so much potential.
    In 1995 I found him in a second hand toy store and he was my obsession from that moment on. I collect everything that’s got to do with him. I almost have every toy that’s been released, I have posters, animation cels, games etc.

    More about me:

    I do enjoy when collectors choose a figure and then proceed to collect all the different types of figures and artwork.

    Like you, Trypticon has a special place in my heart. I had the flu as a kid and my mom left the house and came back with a big ol' surprise. Trypticon of course! That was the best illness of my life. LOL I love your tribute to him. Very cool!

    I gotta say, I love your love of Trypticon! :D  Honestly feel he deserves more figures/ media coverage than what he has right now!

    Just curious, is the Kre-o Trypticon something you made or was that part of an actual set? Don't seem to remember one at least.
    Also sort of curious, do you prefer it when Trypticon goes for a lighter or a darker gray in his colour scheme? I guess personally I wish the Titans Return figure had gone for a bit of a darker shade.

    Thank you, I agree completely. He should get more attention!

    The Lego Trypticon is fan made, by Custom Kreon Transformers - Trypticon 1.5.

    I would have loved it if the Trypticon toy would have been darker grey. Perhaps in the future if/when the rerelease it? Fingers crossed!
