NYCC 2016 - Hasbro Transformers Team Gets A Leg Up On Trypticon Reveal, Plus Highlights! Updated With More Images

The NYCC Hasbro stream has just ended, and we got a special surprise near the end: the first reveal of Trypticon! ...well, partial reveal: a grayscale hardcopy leg is what was ready to show - but it's a great-looking piece roughly the same height as Leader-class Sixshot! We've got lots of high-res stills from the stream, plus photos from RFC's diecast as well as Anthony from TFU.INFO, so keep reading for the highlights and images!

Generations



Trypticon's leg was the only thing shown today that we didn't know about last night. In addition to transforming the leg into its base mode component, showing off the conversion from "Space Dinosaur Titan" to Decepticon city, designer John Warden and marketing director Ben Montano showed off the heavy ratcheting rocker ankles the piece has. "Clicking means cool!", as the host put it. Trypticon's ETA is fall of 2017, presumably after the movie line blows over.

We also got a look at how Leader class Sky Shadow's robot mode assembles, with a long rod connecting the legs to the torso. Sky Shadow is a bit taller than Sixshot, who was also on display and described as "super-poseable" compared to the original! Other than that, we got to see Deluxe Perceptor's microscope mechanism in action - in case you missed it, this will be the first Perceptor since the 1980s that is also a functional microscope. Also on display were Deluxes Twinferno and Triggerhappy.

Transformers: The Last Knight



Warden and Montano - with the host's help - were able to premiere the new Optimus Prime Voice Changer Helmet, which like its predecessor has no trouble fitting an adult. Programmed with a variety of Peter Cullen voice clips, the helmet also retains the voice modulator feature. The speaker is in the forehead - which it took all three of them a minute to figure out for microphone placement!

General



Otherwise, the panel was a bit more general: the host had fond memories of G1 and especially Transformers: The Movie but was genuinely surprised at some of the pieces we saw today. Warden and Montano talked about how the longevity of Transformers and the higher challenge levels of some of the newer toys provided bonding opportunities between parents and children. The team also promised that more news on the Transformers' small-screen adventures could be expected "soon," though how soon soon is and what we'd hear soon was not mentioned. Guess we'll find out soon!
