Titans Return Titan Class Trypticon Thread

Feel free to discuss anything about any of the thousands of Transformer toys here. Anything from Generation 1 all the way to the soon to be released, the never to be released or the hope to be released is fair game! Want to show off your stuff? Please post your's and see others in the Transformers Collections Forum.

I don't know how much that is doable. It should be one solid piece, so basically you'd have to change all the base for the hip
MadProject's right, the cross piece is the same part as the entire base of the hip, so not only would it require a large amount of disassembly (if it even can be disassembled by the consumer; I'll have to look at that) but it'd also be two rather large pieces of metal/sturdy plastic. And given how much even the small 3P products tend to cost...

If it is possible though, that would be totally great! Certainly would be a good move for some 3rd party company or another, since it wouldn't even require any new engineering on its own, just copying an existing part. (And since there was enough demand for better combiner extremities that multiple 3Ps each made their own of those, I can only imagine that there'll be fairly significant demand for a replacement part that stops the figure from destroying itself immediately :lol: .)

Yeah, it would be kinda difficult. That said, if the pieces were slightly redesigned such that the "cross" and the mounting for it were separate pieces (such that the mounting piece would be plastic and the cross metal) it might work a bit better than having two massive chunks of metal.

Look, it wouldn't surprise me if some 3P like Perfect Effect would do totally new legs, instead of just the piece, considering how they usually work.

Also, I find worth mentioning one thing I saw in a videoreview.
If you don't like the tail ending so squarish, you can deply the ramp to give it a tail.
Here's a pic of the result:

Has anyone contacted Hasbro about this to see if they will supply replacement parts or something? It really should be up to them to fix the problem and not rely on 3P companies to sort it.

I thought girth was more important than length. :-s

Indeed, while not really toy or toon accurate, this little addition looks really good. I wonder how it will look with a more T-Rex appropriate stance versus the traditional Gojira...

Some people just want it all. Don't let it get to you, man. It's the motion of the ocean and all that. ;)

Serious time question on Trypticon, though. What mode is he packaged in? Can he be displayed in "Gojira" mode without using the hip ratchets at all? If I see him in store, I might grab him up, but wait to officially Transform him until all this business with the hip joints is sorted out. At the very least, it would be nice to display him next to Metroplex in his default/robot/beast mode while I wait.

it should be in Kaiju mode with tail and head rotated to fit the box and legs detached.

Indeed. He comes packaged somewhere between dino and Nemesis mode, with the legs detached. When you put him together the legs will be in default "upright dino" position, so you can totally stand him next to Metroplex without moving him for now. ;)^

I've been doing that on my Trypticon for a while now too, actually! Not only does it look better in my eyes as well, but it also stops the paint from scratching off that piece (since it drags on the ground and surprise, all the grey on that piece is thick yet somewhat-fragile paint #-o ).

In fact you can also lift the little guns on it all the way 'up', fold that piece out, make sure it's sitting as flush with the ground as possible, then put the guns back down as far as they'll go. They'll bump up against the main chunky part of the tail at an angle, and somewhat complete the curvature of the tail. It looks really good! :D

Transformers Titans Return Trypticon Sighted at UK Retail

Postby Va'al » Thu Jul 06, 2017 6:05 pm

Motto: "Till All Are Pun!"
Australia, the Philippines, and now the UK! The Transformers Titans Return Titan class Trypticon set has appeared in the United Kingdom at regular source of news and retailer Smyths Toys (you can also find him stocked online here) for £149.99 (approx 194 USD). We have no confirmation of where it's being stocked, but it looks like it might just be one case per store according to Sol Fury, who reported the news on TFW2005.

If you come across the big giant purple Decepticon dinosaur, make sure to mark it down in our Sightings database, and let others know where they can find one too!

I was actually hoping that the reason Trypticon was taking so long to be released was that they were addressing the hip problem, but obviously that was me being stupidly optimistic. :(

I think rather few people (on these boards, at least) have had any experience with Trypticon, positive or negative, since he hasn't been very readily available up to this point. Looks like there'll be quite a few more people to submit their experiences soon, though, if the last few posts are anything to go by! :D

Virtually no chance, as the problem is 2 fold, 1) the springs are too strong for the joint, but the bigger problems is 2) they used very soft plastic on the ratchets.

Unfortunately I don't think it's so much about the number of bad toys as it is about the ratio of 'fine' to 'bad', and even then it'd be more about how many complaints they get or whatever, rather than how bad or widespread the issue itself is. Think about how many toys there are in the TR line, and how many of those have had devastating QC issues (including Trypticon); then, think about how many Trypticons they'll still sell compared to the surely-small number of complaints they'll actually receive about those toys, even if the problem exists on every copy. It's a fairly logical (or "logical") business move and much as I hate to say it, we're pretty much stuck voting with our wallets or sending complaints to a multinational corporation to try and instigate some kind of change - and even then there's a chance they'd get the wrong message and put Titans to bed or something...

It's hard being individual collectors trying to deal with a large faceless business :(
