Are there even enough toys of him to collect?

@  Nevermore : (21 July 2017 - 04:19 PM)

Speaking of, what do you call someone who collects toys of the Marvel character The Collector?

@  Nevermore : (21 July 2017 - 04:18 PM)

What about people who collect the "Die Hard" movies?

@  wonko the sane? : (21 July 2017 - 03:54 PM)

A lot of the die hard collectors don't need to be louder...

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (21 July 2017 - 03:22 PM)

@Nevermore Benbot means "amped" as in excited. I believe the term is shorthand for (a sound) amplifier.

@  Nevermore : (21 July 2017 - 03:10 PM)

Or is "shorthand" a synonym for "amputated"?

@  Nevermore : (21 July 2017 - 03:10 PM)

Is "amped" shorthand for "amputated"?

@  Benbot : (21 July 2017 - 12:28 PM)

I am amped! But I also have standards.

@  Fear or Courage : (21 July 2017 - 08:38 AM)

I consider Thew to basically be the model toy collector. We should all aim to be so amped about the thing we collect.

@  Pennpenn : (21 July 2017 - 07:21 AM)

And some people are just whiny jerks who like to complain about stuff and don't realise that, so will invent irrational grievances to fuel that need.

@  Rycochet : (21 July 2017 - 06:13 AM)

A lot of toy collectors don't seem to get that the things the collect are toys.and have unrealistic expectations of what's doable in a modern retail environment. You're not going to get a $100 figure's worth of parts and paint for $20 or less and gimmicks are needed tomake the toys actually, you know, fun.

@  Foffy : (20 July 2017 - 09:40 PM)

Not necessarily. With the right condiments, they can taste surprisingly nice.

@  Evac : (20 July 2017 - 09:37 PM)

I think most toy collectors are bitter in some form.

@  Diecast : (20 July 2017 - 09:37 PM)

...or maybe I'm the bitter one?!  Oh no.

@  Diecast : (20 July 2017 - 09:32 PM)

And I don't even mean that everyone should love it all. But it does seem to bring the angrier ones in from the lurking.

@  Diecast : (20 July 2017 - 09:29 PM)

It's these reveals that always remind me how exceptionally bitter a large portion of toy collectors are on other forums.

@  Sean Whitmore : (20 July 2017 - 07:06 PM)

SDCC toy reveals make adults happy by telling them what they can get eventually. Kids don't care what they can get eventually, you make them happy by getting them whatever's available now.

@  Jalaguy : (20 July 2017 - 06:10 PM)

They exist, they just don't show them at SDCC because they assume that the adult fanbase doesn't care about them.

@  Steevy Maximus : (20 July 2017 - 06:03 PM)

On SDCC stuff...I'm disappointed, but not surprised, at the lack of the actual KIDS toys among all the toys for us old men

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.
