Trypticon is OUT!!!! Not only is he shipping from online retailers like BBTS (for those who preordered him), but he has appeared at US retail. The picture below comes from a sighting at a Think Geek store in Oklahoma. The price is the MSRP of $150 and it was found by TFW2005 board member Heat Guy.

The hunt is on and remember to let fans know where you find him in our sightings forum and sightings section.

That's a lot of money for dodgy legs.

LOLOLOL :lol: :lol:

We didn't really have any out of the box major issues with the other Titans did we? I mean yeah, Metro and Maxi have legs that collapse under their own weight sometimes but they didn't break.

Has anyone actually confirmed that the legs are breaking? All I've seen are videos with people concerned about them, but no actual breaking yet.

Wait, Trypticon is shipping for some people from BBTS? I thought I was one of the first to pre-order (I even got a News credit here for being the first to mention it). Do certain people get priority regardless of order time?

Qwan back in page 24 of this very thread posted some pics of the damage and explanation. He followed up with a fix tutorial in page 26.

I saw that, but has the damage been displayed on any other toys? One person's report doesn't mean it's an epidemic and you can't rule out improper handling until it's replicated via normal use.

Since its just now starting to get a full release, we may need to wait a bit before we get actual reports of it.

If it even is a QC issue affecting more than a few samples.

Nice. How do you find the hips? Do they carry all the flaws that have been profiled in other threads, or was that just a fluke?

I feel thine agony. I had it on pre-order too. Guess some pre-order is more 'order' than 'pre'.....

So if your Trypticon's hip thingy does turn out to be a dud one, what's the extent of the damage? Is it as bad as causing parts to fall off, or does it just become very loose and unable to support anything? Is it something you could viably take back to the store to return it and say "hey this is broken gimme my money back"?

That probably depends on the store, but in most cases, I imagine so.

If his ratchet-jointed legs become loose to the point that he can't stand up, I'm sure that in itself is either 'broken' or 'defective' enough by the standards of Wal-Mart or Target to exchange.

I don't think a small chain of specialty shops counts as "being out" at retail any more than BBTS shipping preorders does. Try again when it shows up en masse at TRU, Walmart, Target, etc. you know, actual mass retail. (not that it'll show up at any of the ones in my area :HEADHURTS: )

No worries. Hasbro is promptly sending out replacement legs to all defective Trypticons.

Some people had issues with a tab on Scrapper that keeps his scoop/blade/whatever in position for foot mode snapping off when transforming. I don't know the level of widespread it was, it hasn't happened on mine (mine did have two right hands, though, a completely different, one off issue!)

I had that issue but it was because transforming wasnt done in the proper order for that particular peg. Mistransforming it would lead to a snap on any version, Hasbro or Takara. That was more the user`s fault (I would know, I did the same mistake). Of course the debate remains on how much Hasbro or Takara shoudl rely on the user respecting the precise instructions.

We will find out soon enough :)

It does count. If we waited for the combienr box sets to show up at your retail to write an article saying they were out, we still wouldnt have an article.

Point is, its out somewhere so it might come out elsewhere.
