I wanted to create a Decepticon display that would go along with my Autobot HQ, and so I started by cannibalizing parts from a Kre-o Megatron that I picked up cheap. It seemed fitting that the leader of the Decepticons would sacrifice his body as a refuge for his minions. My first run was something I called the Megatower--a three tiered tower that could fold out into a command station. Unfortunately, I didn't take any pictures of it. It wasn't very sturdy, and I grew weary of putting back together all the time. Then, while fidgeting about with spare parts, I thought that Megatron's fingers would make great hands for a Trypticon...so I dismantled the Megatower and cobbled together the monstrosity below.
From these pictures, he actually looks more like a giant Kre-o Rippersnapper than a Trypticon...
I even made him a little sidekick, an homage to Full-tilt that looks nothing at all like him. Sorry, Brunt, there weren't enough pieces for you.
Tryptikreon's lower abdomen is all that remains of the Megatower: a cubical jail cell with an access door in the back.
I did cheat and use a spare part from Bumblebee to get a yellow crest on Tryptikreon in an attempt to make him resemble his G1 self a little more.
