I didn't forget him, I just was stating the Deluxes I would have liked, wasn't listing Titan Masters...I had a list of Titan Masters months ago and both Doublecross Twinferno and Grotusque were on there.

Despite early listings of Takara's Transformers Legends Trypticon having a catapult and inconsistent lighting in so many in hand images (and painted prototypes) of both versions, it turns out that there is literally no difference between the Trypticon released by Hasbro and Takara. The box and instructions are different, but that is it. And this also means that this is the only titan master without paint on his titan master face in all of Takara's releases. Trevor Hopkins has taken a bullet for all of us and purchased both trypticons ot make a comparison video to show you how identical they are. The good news is that all those who purchased Hasbro's Trypticon technically have a Takara quality release. Are you happy that there is no debate over which version is better this time? Or do you wish Takara had something more? Which box is the cooler one? Let us know!

The other good news is that it also means our Seibertron gallery can play double roles so if you want to check out awesome images of Trypticon, click here to see our gallery.

I'm honestly kinda glad about this. It means that regardless of which version I can get, I'll be getting the same figure. I might spring for the Legends just because getting the Hasbro version won't be THAT much cheaper and from what I hear Takara's Trypticon is less prone to self-destructing.

I was hoping to see what the Hasbro left out to be cheap/Takara included for a better version differences there were going to be.

Now we just wait to see what cool 3P Trypticon add-ons/accessories get released.

A repaint of Perceptor as Brunt would have been cool.

I can confirm that the sticker sheets are different as the Titan Returns Trypticon has 158 Stickers and the Legends Trypticon has 136 stickers. Images attached for comparison. Not sure which stickers are missing but this does show a minor difference in the sticker application for these to versions of Trypticon.

Eh. Brunt isn't like Scamper, Full-Tilt, Cog, or Fasttrack. He's like Sixgun and Slammer, a collection of armaments and tower parts that can merge to make a separate unit. So while it would be better than no Brunt at all it wouldn't be a true Brunt that provided the last few pieces Titan-class Trypticon is missing (most notably the big cowled laser cannon that's the main gun in battlestation/battlecruiser mode and acts as the central tower in city mode). Plus packing in an additional Deluxe with a Titan-class toy that has an integrated Deluxe already? I don't think that would happen.
On top of that, I wouldn't think it likely for Takara to just redeco an existing figure as Brunt at this time. Breakaway hasn't been slated for a Legends release as Lightfoot, Sky Shadow hasn't been slated for a Legends release as Black Shadow. so they don't seem too interested in that approach with larger-than-TM figures currently.

All that being said, redecoing someone as Brunt isn't a horrible idea, though for my money I think Hardhead would work better than Perce.

A more feasible option would be to redo a Titan Master vehicle as Brunt, like Terri-Bull. It would be cheaper and Full Tilt could use it as a weapon.

As for 3P, we still haven't seen Gasket/Grommet stand in, so I wouldn't hold my breath waiting for Brunt.

I had thought about getting the :TAKARATOMY: version but maybe I will just save $100 and pick up the :HASBRO: Trips. I went Takara with Fort Max, but the Fortress figure and Sword made it more Japanese cartoon accurate in that case. If the main difference is the box, I will fool around with the legs if I need to so I can put the cost difference toward other figures.

Funny enough, I had the same thought about a Titan Master vehicle like Skytread's or Shuffler's.

We haven't seen Gasket & Grommet from 3rd-party outfits yet, no. But we have seen Sixgun as well as the Perfect Effect kit for things like Fort Max's waist guns and large Photon Rifle. Brunt is an important component like that and Trypticon is popular, so I say there's still hope.

On the subject of Cog, I think you could maybe do up scout-class Scattorshot as him. Between the big missiles and being a halftrack, his vehicle mode ends up looking like a mashup of Gasket and Grommet, and he's not exactly rare.

Back to Brunt.. Until such time as one is made, a good substitute for the big cannon in battlecruiser mode would be sticking Full-tilt on and then mounting Galvatron's cannon on him.

From what I can tell on first glance, the amount is still the same: however, the numbering is different in that "duplicate" stickers use the same number on the Legends version. Here's what I can spot:

- Hasbro's 121 - 126 and TakaraTomy's 70 - 72
- Hasbro's 115 - 120 and TakaraTomy's 67 - 69
- Hasbro's 93 - 96 and TakaraTomy's 37
- Hasbro's 151 - 154 and TakaraTomy's 57
- Hasbro's 98 & 99 and TakaraTomy's 38
- Hasbro's 45-50 and TakaraTomy's 81

Twinferno would have worked well as a Titan Master, and the other two would be more than acceptable losses to have updated representations of the 1987 Autobot Target Masters again.

I'm only in agreement with the later half. Personally I would have liked to have seen no Targetmasters or Powermasters in Titans Return at all. I'd prefer we had gotten all of the Headmasters or at the very least Snapdragon and Apeface and a Leader Scorponok. I'd rather our trio of Decepticon Targetmasters and Breakaway were held over for another line replaced by new Repugnus and Grotusque figures and two others like Blue Bacchus to go with Sky Shadow and maybe Rad or Axer as the Chromedome repaint. Once Prime Wars is finished I'd like to see a "weaponmasters" line the Targetmasters can be slipped into along with other types of weapons similar to the RID Minicons.

Considering how short supply he was in the states (I've never seen one in person) it doesn't surprise me if some people forgot he exists.

I forgot I even had him. Then found him at back of my shelf and sold him.

Emerje, your post makes me want to do what Optimus is doing in your avatar.
First off,a Leader-class Scorponok would be worthless. That would be even more ridiculously outsized by Fort Max (either version) than the original G1 Scorponok toy. The only class suitable for a brand-new toy of G1 Scorponok is Titan-class. No ifs ands or buts.
As for the Targetmasters, not including them in Titans Return would have been a bad call considering that they were still a major part of the late-1987 lineup and featured in The Rebirth.
As for Powermasters, there's exactly three (but then, if we're bringing back the "little partner figure who forms part of a Transformer" concept why not make new toys for the Powermasters?): 1. Powermaster Optimus Prime (who was a big part of late G1 both in the Marvel comics and in the so-called fifth season of the cartoon where he was part of the framing device. Plus, well, Generations hadn't had a big Optimus yet), who is a retool of the already-existing CW Ultra Magnus. 2. Breakaway, because Hasbro wanted more mileage out of the Chromedome mold and realized that A. Getaway/Lightfoot's original car mode and TR Chromedome's car mode looked quasi-similar and B. the faux-hood chest was shaped such that it could be painted up like the original toy's chest windshield. That and he's a major character in the IDW comics. 3. Overlord. Whose original toy costs a mint due to no US release, who has appeal to fans of Japanese G1, and who is also a major player in the IDW comics. Every reason to have a new toy developed.
The Horrorcons, meanwhile? They would have been annoying to design within the constraints of Titans Return and, frankly, to bring up to the standards of modern Transformers figures (Apeface especially), and wouldn't have lent themselves to being moldmates with anybody except maybe each other. And they would have had to rely on nostalgia for sales (and from what I understand they were never the most popular) since the Horrorcons are barely even a footnote in IDW. Also, since they would have been Voyagers (if they'd been made as full figures at all) it's not like the Targetmasters took spots they would have used.

o.supreme, while updated versions of the other three Autobot Targetmasters would have been nice, it's understandable why Breakaway and Windblade were ahead of them. Those two are decidedly more significant in the IDW comics (which are part of what drive Generations' sales). Doublecross AKA Twinferno, not so much, but he did appear in Maximum Dinobots and IMO he has more kid appeal than Sureshot & co. what with being a 2-headed dragon.
