trypticon teaches us all how not to be seen
You know, I'm starting to think this is all a Jedi-level marketing choice and Hasbro uses copy like this because they know one in every ten of these things will become a wiki meme someday....

So, I've never owned Trypticon before. Seeing the new one led me to look up a review or two of the original on YouTube.
After watching this, I can honestly say that I am quite alright with "G1 but with slight improvements." Again, that's coming from someone who didn't own the original.
I can do without the loud battery-powered rotating turrets (maybe something you turn manually would be nice) and walking, but the fact this one seems to have interiors (something Fort Max is seriously lacking in) is a nice replacement to me. Have the ramps fold up into the sides instead of being removed, and I'm not sure there's much I'd want to change overall beyond articulation.
I'd say "yeah, bring on TR Trypticon," except the last two cities have been a little lacking in one way or another compared to their G1 counterparts, even while improving in other areas. With that in mind, I can honestly say "G1 but bigger" wouldn't be the worst thing here.

I can't believe people didn't like Slendercheetah and Wrong Colors Dinobot.
Anyway, I swear I read that the Beast Wars Generations toys had performed poorly compared to expectations and that we shouldn't expect lots more of them in future.
That was Universe, though. Generations Beast Wars were the good ones: Rhinox, Rattrap, and Waspinator.
Rattrap and Tankor embarrassed Hasbro in front of the progressive press by choking the Grrl Power wave out of stores after they went through all the effort to hype it. That won't be easily forgotten.

Full-Tilt with titan master Wipe Out head!
Okay, I'm excited for this again.

That is probably the coolest that Trypticon's 1986 Battle Station mode has ever looked!
No, we don't all know everything but we should spread and share that what we do know.
If I'm consistently misspelling a word, I would want and expect people to correct me as should I imagine all decent people who know the value of good literacy.
Its just arrogant laziness to know you're spelling a word incorrectly and not correct yourself or ignore the advice when people do tell you how to spell a word correctly.

-ZacWilliam, I mean the toy and Full-Tilt look awesome but that gimmick just puts it over the top.
