Trypticon has officially been revealed as the latest Titan-class Transformer

1 min read


When it comes to Transformers, bigger is always better. It’s the reason why we’ve got Autobots such as Metroplex and Fortress Maximus, towering juggernauts roughly the size of an entire city for the robots in disguise. But on the Decepitcon side? Sure, Devastator may be their ultimate combiner bot, but even he happens to be outclassed by a certain other abomination within the ranks of those devious droids.

Or as the TFwiki describes him:

Enormous in both size and power, Trypticon is an unstoppable engine of destruction. This might please him greatly… were he not bored by the entire prospect. He cares little for his role as the ultimate Decepticon weapon and finds war to be a waste of effort. He doesn’t like his comrades, he absolutely hates the Autobots, and—though he hides it well—he loathes himself most of all.

An extinction event in a metal shell, that goes by the name of Trypticon. Essentially a physical embodiment of hate that looks like the bastard child of Godzilla and the red Power Ranger’s T-Rex DinoZord, Trypticon despises everything and has the ability to transform into an artillery platform. Fans have been wanting to see the guy realised for ages now. And they’ll be getting a new Trypticon in the Titans Return line of figures.

Here’s his full colour render, via Seibertron:


So how big is Trypticon in comparison to the likes of Metroplex and Fortress Maximus? He’s massive alright, but not that big. TFormers did some sleuthing, and estimated that the big T will clock in at a size of 19 inches in height, which happens to be five inches shorter than the stupidly gigantic Fortress Maximus.

That’s still a hefty bot, and I’m dying to see him transformed into his base-mode. There’s no solid release date on Tryppysaurus above, but don’t expect him to be cheap either. Fortress Maximus retailed for close to $200 when he was unleashed last year, so expect a similar price tag for this fella.

          I don’t search acronyms because generally there are several meanings for a single one. Like in this case how would Manufacturing Skill Standards Council apply to the article?

            Oh I agree with you, the best source to find these is usually Urban Dictionary. However, that specific one returns nothing when searched so I turned to Google. Not sure how it applies maybe @Admiral_Chief:disqus could actually help.

            Yep. Hence why I asked him in the first place 😛 Might just be some inside joke.

        You know, for when there is no one commenting. Just to make the writer of said article not feel like a total failure.

        Also, just to show them I read what they wrote 😉

          Ah. That’s a rather nice thing to do. I only noticed now that there isn’t a view counter.

    They should rename it to EmoSaurus Rex.
    “I hate the Autobots, I hate my friends, I hate myself. My life is a black abyss. I can never get skinny jeans in my size.”

    On a more serious note though I would probably have given up one of my parents to have one of these as a kid.
