Trypticon is one of the biggest generation-1 Transformers ever made. Traditionally it transforms into a base and a mobile battle station, now I have Neo-ized him to become more than just a triple changer.
About this creation
Happy new year 2007! I better start inserting dates into my MOCpages creation
gallery so that I myself can keep track of how far I've progressed in making
Creation was done by end of 2006. But I've spruced things up yesterday, which
is the 2nd of January, 2007.
As usual, below is a specimen which I based my creation off (for those who
are uninitiated with Transformers toys =)
Trypty from the 80's
The original Trypticon transform into a base, and them a mobile battle
station. I found out he has many parts that is separated to become his companion
Actually I didn't intend to make Trypty, as I started on Black Zarak months
before. But then I found out Black Zarak won't make a really sleek scorpion if
he were to transform into a base too. And so while fiddling with my black
bricks.. i finally decide to build Trypticon .
This time around, I do away with ALL separate parts. This means he
won't have any accessories that plugs in into him to form all his modes. And
he'll me MORE than just a triple changer (I'll leave the spoiler for you to
discover as you scroll and view the photos ^_^)
I'm using red to replace the not-so-common colors in the original trypty,
which are very rare in LEGO bricks. Red is a fierce color, I'm sure you'll agree
with me there.
And you might found out I've used a mixture of old and new dark grey bricks
in this creation. I've mixed them up in my bin, and it's really not be that
glaringly easy to differentiate in real life than in the photos below.
After I've done with the photo session, I found out (IT always happen.. just
my carelessness) there's a cosmetic fault in my creation here (which can be
easily rectified but I'm too lazy to re-snap the photos). The first fault I
already highlited out in one of the photos below. And there's another too....
*sigh* . Can you spot it ?
