LG43 Dinosaurer versus Titans Return Trypticon: What's The Difference?
ExVee - Thursday, August 31, 2017


With the significant differences between Hasbro and TakaraTomy versions of both Metroplex and Fortress Maximus - oh and of course can't forget the Devastators! -, many have been wondering just what to expect with the Japanese release of Trypticon. While clearly nowhere near as different as the prior Titans, photos at least let people identify where different shades of colors had been used, right? To settle the question, Trevor Hopkins put a video on Youtube that explains all of what's different, and how much is in fact the same. Click through to see that video and find out the relevant details!

Summary version of what the video explains:

•  The boxes are different
•  The instructions are different

•  The stickers are the same but are printed on a slightly larger sheet
•  Full Tilt and Necro are the same between versions
•  And Trypticon and Dinosaurer are both shown to be completely identical in color, with none of the previously perceived differences in shades of the purples, teals, or grey.
•  Dinosaurer's hips apparently came out of the box in a much better condition than the notable Trypticons from the start of the Hasbro release of the toy.

Trevor himself stresses that aside from maybe being able to know ahead that the hips seem okay, there's no particular point to getting Dinosaurer if you have Trypticon, and you should just get whichever version is easier and less expensive for you.

Since we heard about TakaraTomy's "Power of Prime" line, we've been speculating that the reduced prices (relative to Legends series) indicate straight repacks of the US toys. While nothing is 100% certain until we have them in hand... those sure are US toys in the Dengeki Hobby photo gallery we've mirrored here. In particular, Jazz's markings are all 100% identical to the US release in these photos - even if these are entirely the US-release toys, whether the promised running change will apply to the TakaraTomy release is currently unknown. Good photos though - keep reading to see more!
The ever reliable Tagoal has posted new in-hand images of LG-EX God Ginrai! The figure is a re-release of the individual TakaraTomy Godbomber and Super Ginrai, and... basically, what you get for this fancy boxset is clear windows on Ginrai, chrome on Godbomber, and two new Headmasters. Is that worth buying this set twice? Probably not, but we think it'll probably come down to how much you like Minerva and Cab. Keep reading!
We've reported previously on the retool of Cerebros and Emissary - or if you prefer, Fortress - to feature likenesses of the "Downtown" comedy duo. Tonight we have an official page for the mailaway exclusive item, complete with clearer stock images of the larger figure and its Titan Master/Headmasters, showing both of the faces as well as the face that will adorn whatever Fortress or Grand Maximus one may eventually dock this item to. We're still waiting to find out what exactly might go on the sound chip for this edition. Click through to see the photos.
The opening alone is worth the price of admission. TakaraTomy has posted a new 100-second ad for their Street Fighter II x Transformers toys to YouTube, and it's a nice little thing with a great adaptation of the Super Street Fighter II Turbo intro. Keep reading to have a look!
Singapore fangroup Planet Iacon broke the news - and site sponsor BigBadToyStore has just confirmed - that TakaraTomy's version of Power of the Primes begins in May! Titled very similarly as Power of Prime, the figures listed are being released in a format seemingly identical to their US releases. But, what's interesting is what's not listed from Wave 1.
