The centerpiece of Hasbro’s Titans Return display at this year’s Toy Fair was the newly revealed Titans Return Trypticon.
Trypticon won a fan poll last year for the next titan class Transformers figure against the likes of Scopronok and Omega Supreme. This was the first time the full prototype has been on display and lots of news surrounding it has come out.
- Full Tilt, the smaller Transformer that came with the original Trypticon, is included.
- Full Tilt has a Titan Master. The Titan Master’s name is Necro.
- Necro appears to be based on Wipe Out, an obscure character that appeared with Trypticon at one point.
- No Electronics (the choice was to include Full Tilt instead of electronics).
- Base mode can connect to the other bases in the line.
- Opening the mouth reveals a ‘throat’ which will funnel a Titan Master down to Trypticon’s chest compartment.
Unicron.com got a great video interview with Hasbro designer, John Warden.
