Toy Fair 2017: Tranformers Titans Return Trypticon

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.

Here are the official renders of the figure from Hasbro:

Toy Fair 2013: Transformers Generations and Masterpiece lines

transformers-prime-generations-a2375-trailcutter-robot-mode

I’m breaking up the Transformers news by line because there was just so much information dispersed. The Generations line continues in 2013 kicking off the celebration of the franchise’s 30th birthday in 2014. 30th Anniversary logos will be appearing on packaging with pack-in comics included. IDW and Hasbro has been working together closer to try and get the toys and the comic art to match more closely. If these new reveals are any indication, they are being widly successful.

Join us after the jump for pictures and details of what is coming our way!

Transformers Generations will continue in November 2011

A great deal of concern has been voiced in the Transformers fandom about the fate of the Generations line after the Dark of the Moon toy line runs its course and the Transformers Prime toy line gets kicked off at the end of the year. Online retailer, Kapow Toys checked in with Full Metal Hero to let us all know that they just received solicitations for a new wave of Generations figures along with a case breakdown for the new wave.

The case will include:
2x Wheeljack
1x Sergeant Kup
1x Warpath
2x Black Shadow
2x Junkion

Black Shadow is expected to be a Thunderwing repaint with a newly tooled head. We heard of this based on the instructions included with Thunderwing. I believe we heard that there were three heads created for the Junkion mold. One was for Wreck-Gar, another for the Japanese exclusive E-Hobby set and the third was set for an North American release. It can be expected that this Junkion will have the aforementioned third head.
