So now he's spotless, clean as a whistle, but he's got a yellow plastic face...lol - http://www.paxcybertron.wordpress.com

Anyone want a clean, but non-silverfaced Metroplex? Send me a PM.

*sigh*.


Oh man! Yeah, sorry I didn't see this sooner, but bleach is awful for plastics :-( Next time, try Retrobrite. There's also a good thread in the toys forum, I think it's stickied at top of the thread list, about how to clean your toys properly. It's like 60 pages, but there's some good stuff in there.

When did they do that? I know at one point they said they were considering a Trypticon, but didn't know how to make it work, what with him transforming into a astroid or something in WFC.

It was only a hint, nothing concrete, sadly. And Trypticon could transform into the Nemesis! :D


You should probably throw a spoiler tag on that :-B

Eh, that episode aired months ago. If you haven't seen it by now, you're wayyyy behind the curve. >:oP

episode?


Double spoiler, I guess? I'm not caught up on Prime, but I thought we were talking about FOC. :-x




Pfft. It was stated in one of the novels that Trypticon's remains were used to create the Nemesis (sorry about the overly brought up spoiler). There's an episode in Prime called "Flying Mind" where the Nemesis gets fused with Dark Energon and has a mind of it's own, but that's not the first time we learned of Trypticon's existence as the ship. :roll:

I'm sorry, back to FOC.


That book was Exiles. Also, in FOC, there's a mission where you play as Megatron to recover Trypticon (which was captured by the Autobots), and sort of screw with his source code (Robots have source codes?) and permanently transform him into battleship mode, as the Nemesis. Something along those lines. :lol:

Hey, no problem, lesson learned and I ended up just buying an Encore Metroplex anyway. I'm going to list the "bleached" face on ebay today. Someone could easily paint his face to match FOC more or something like that.

metroplex would be a challenge to make or at least make look good but now that trypticon is the nemesis he should be easier to make than the WFC gunship. and i reaaalllly hope they do make a trypticon/nemesis figure an ark figure would be cool but i guess it would be a transformer but it could still be a base
