I wanted to make a base bot to go with my Fort Max. So here is my custom Trypticon. I went with the toon black as the main color.


First is base mode:





rocket/shuttle launching pad:



airstrip/runway:



Full Tilt:



Assault Vehicle mode ("Battlecruiser operational". Starcraft anyone?):







Full Tilt can be stored as shown or can transform to gun mode and placed in the minicon port (as if Trypticon needed more guns):



Beast mode (yes, I know he's not a T-Rex but he is a beast. And since he has 2 heads I made the other one have horns like Gigastorm):



Back cannons, mouth guns, and hidden hand guns:



Here he is next to my dusty Fort Max custom. As you can see he is as big as Fort Max:



Here are some pics showing that each head can move forward independent of each other (joints at bottom of neck as well as top of neck):



Lights!!!:



Movie showcasing the flasthing lights:

Mostly an Energon Wingsaber, from the looks of it. Cybertron Megatron's cockpit/chest is also present, as are Energon Grimlock's arms, Energon Barricade's legs, and Classics Jetfire's backpack guns.

Since its based on Wingsaber and if it still splis up you need to find yourself an extra Energon Prime cab to turn into Galvatron (the "City Commander") and have them merge into.... Death on legs.

I used E. Wingsaber and E. Barricade as the for the bulk of the body, parts of C. Megatron for the chest and rocket booster for the back pack, Energon Grimlocks legs for the arms, Classics Jetfire cannons and his rocket thrust for the Battlecruiser's thrusts. The rest are scratchbuilt (the tail, back pack, runway, launch pad, upper portion of the 2 heads). I think that's it. icon-fire.gif Yep it's a real Frankenstein approach but there isn't an existing mode out there (transformers or otherwise) that lends well to making a Trypticon like this so I had to be a bit more creative

Very cool indeed! Looks dark and EVIL :-)

Since you're adding extra heads, why not give him a THIRD head... then he could really be TRIpticon.

Pretty nice work here, just imagine what Hasbro could do making something like this from scratch with the same ideas!

Thanks man. I miss transtopia. I know it moved to Seibertron but it's not the same anymore. Anyways, 4 posts up, you'll see a list of what I used to make him.
