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.

Autobase Aichi has published a synopsis of the Transformers news in this month's issue of Hyper Hobby, one of the many hobby magazines published monthly in Japan. While the mechanical translation is typically shaky, it seems as though the Legends series, with its higher standards of deco, will be continuing alongside the Japanese release of Power of the Primes! But there is still a catch - keep reading for details.
Loopaza Mega Store has posted images of the packed-in paperwork for LG-60 Legends Series Overlord! The figure's bio card and (mercifully Safe For Work) comic are on display, showing off the new tooling for the figure's chest and Headmaster robots as well as a new mode created for the comic. ...but, kind of an expensive one. Keep reading for details!
Twitter user @kinoko51 has posted in-hand images of their just-purchased round of January's Legends releases from TakaraTomy! In addition to the Clonebots Fastlane/Fastclash and Cloudraker and Blitzwing, there's a side-by-side comparison of the US and Japan releases of Overlord. Keep reading to see!
TakaraTomy has released via their official Transformers PR Twitter account a set of photos showing off the small sheet of optional stickers that will be packed in with the upcoming LG63 G2 Megatron. The sheet leans in to the roots of the deco, including a MEGATRON RULES sticker for the chest emulating a major piece of the Hero Megatron toy's factory applied stickering, as well as the option of a G2 Decepticon symbol, or Predacon logos, speculated to indicate that the Legends pack-in comics may be assigning the identity of Predacon Megatron to this toy's Headmaster. We've mirrored the photos, and you can find them below.
Fresh off the forums, chuckdawg1999 has brought us a video review for the just-released legends series Slugslinger from TakaraTomy. LG55 features the Targetmaster Caliburst and sports a modified deco from the earlier Hasbro release. Chuck shows off both the Titans Return and Legends versions side by side to highlight the points of difference between them, though outside the choice of dedicated weapon versus Targetmaster, the only real changes come down to colors. You can watch the review right now, embedded just below in the full post.
