LEGO Alphaplex (aka Neo Metroplex)

Postby alanyap » Sat Feb 23, 2013 6:59 pm

Alphaplex is the future incarnation of Metroplex , who suffered almost-fatal damage in one of the massive Decepticon attack. With the help of advanced Cybertronian technology... he is upgrade to become a massive spaceship and is bonded with a minion Duobot, a robot that splits into a tank and an jet plane. No longer the slow and plodding land-based Autobot , he now travels through space hopping from one planet to another seeking and wiping out whatever Decepticons he found that once collectively almost sent him to his doom.

Ok lemme just stop right there since I'm no expert in fanfiction, and it took me a while to give a proper name to this LEGO MOC .

Even though I'm a fan of everything "base mode", I have always been critical on good old Metroplex vehicle mode . That's why I was hesistant to get him (reissued version) even at a handsome discount. He can be more if they toy designers put more thought into it. Having platforms and ramps all over doesn't mean they must always translate to squarish and blocky robot. After observing and cleaning dust off some of my LEGO parts.. I noticed there are some big sleek parts which never seemed to be able to be utilised at all. Time to make a move.

So there's absolutely no disassembly required to transform him?

yep... no dissasembly required to transform him between the 3 modes (besides the optional tank+jet minion complementing as the base tower/weaponry).

I did. Found it too confusing, figured it was easier to just ask. :lol:

The fact that it transforms without having to remove any parts just adds to its awesomeness.
