The Transformers’ 2017 Trypticon t-rex is here. Hasbro has made its biggest Decepticon ever.
What is the Trypticon Titans Figure?
For those of you that aren’t familiar with this toy, it is basically a T-Rex dinosaur that turns into a city and “battle base.” Trypticon is the fan choice for the Transfomers Titans Return Platinum Edition line by Hasbro and is an update of the city bots from the 1980s. In beast mode, Trypticon is an impressive pantheon of colors but his companion figures, Brunt and Full Tilt can be created by using mostly the purple parts. Any child, or adult fan, will love this toy.
Trypticon, Brunt and Full Tilt have extra detailing in the form of stickers. Gold stickers actually create the big dino’s eyes, and a large Decepticon symbol is on his torso.
City Mode is where the real fun is. New stickers, color-coordinated with the toy’s color, have been created for the helicopter pad and landing strip. Other fun details have been added in throughout the set, such as the computer consoles and bathroom stickers. Labels and coordinated stickers are also on the space bridges.
Clocking in at 20 inches, which is a slight bit taller than a GI toy at 19-inches, the Trypticon Transformer may not be a challenge to the Fortress Maximus. The chunky dino proportion on the T-rex is still there, however, and in the city mode the space bridge knees are there. The “spaceship” mode even has those false eyes. Stability tines are on the feet of the dinosaur, and when he transforms between modes it looks really cool.
Missing Electronics, but That’s No Big Deal for Trypticon
Yes, Trypticon may be missing its electronics, but don’t let that fool you because it gets something that is even better. Full Tilt, which is Trypticon’s former drone, gets a huge upgrade in size, with its own Titan Master, Necro. The new design is a faithful update to the traditional design.
The space that was taken up by electronics in the original design is now dedicated to something new. One of the best play features of the whole Titans Return line is that Trypticon can now “swallow” his Titan Masters and store them inside his stomach. For fans of Transformer figures, that feature alone is really amazing.
Overall, this new Transformers toy, Trypticon, is a hit. We recommend this toy to every Transformers fan as it is just one of those toys you “must have.”
