Hasbro rep said they dropped about $400k to revamp the mold.

Ah, so it is based on the original G1 toy then? That's kinda what I figured.

Oh well, hopefully they'll drop another $30~$40k (or whatever it takes :P) to make a true FoC version.

Like I said, I will buy this one, but the one I really want is a true representation of the FoC version. Oh well, they probably won't, but maybe Planet X will ;).

Oh. My. Primus.

That is the single most epic thing Hasbro has ever made. Thank you, Hasbro, thank you so much.

Argh...So many lovely expensive toys...Figma Insane Black Rock Shooter and other Figmas, TFC Hercules (or Giant, can't decide...), all 7 Soul of Chogokin SPEC Evangelion figures and the Positron Rifle set that I've seen on eBay...

My wallet will be stinging. Time to get drawing and publish one of those mangas I've been dreaming up for years.

Truth be told, if I had the money I would buy Hercules and yellow Giant, with Hercules as Devastator (or rather Devastator number 1, I still need to get the limbbots for my Energon Devastator) and with the power of reprolabels and a bit of paint, transform (pardon the pun) into a less sucky version of Landfill, almost like an Autobot attempt to clone Devastator.

But unless I get rich quick that's never going to happen because the combined total is over £800...Sigh...

I have a sad because of how much Australian retailers will jack up the price. :-(

I hear that. I might order a case from BBTS and scalp the excess just enough to cover shipping costs. Would probably still be cheaper than retail.

Unfortunately, I think Blitzwing is the Astrotrain that was reported several weeks back. It may be that the source got his names mixed up and thought he was Astrotrain, not Blitzwing.

I'm totally on the wall with this one, while leaning towards a simple "pass". Namely because when it comes to the Autobot/Cybertron portion of my collection...

1) He does not fit in the Japan exclusive Commander sub-category (as the original debuted in Scramble City: Mobilization and became an Earth Commander in The Headmasters).
2) It has not been confirmed that TOMY will add him to their own "Generations" line.
3) I already own the "Encore" reissue of Metroflex.
4) TOMY hinted* that the "Fall of Cybertron" incarnations tied to their Generations line are tied to their G1 reboot (i.e. "ALL SPARK").
5) And yet, this incarnation of Metroplex appears to be tied to IDW's own G1 reboot, instead of a continuation of "FoC" versions of existing characters.

[*: I have all the Kerokero Ace issues that include "ALL SPARK." So nyah!]

However... I will not rule it out quite yet. That, and hightly recommend it to fans of the IDW/G1 fanbase. (Meanwhile... This is making me rething about praying for a G1 reissue of Metrotitan. But I doubt I will want him.)

You can bet that Takara will release their own version of it (and that it will likely have more paint). That's the version I'll buy if they do. I don't buy any Hasbro Generations figures any more, just Takara (TG) and this will be no exception.

I'm sure it's just on a delay compared to the US release just as Blaster and Grimlock were.

Same here. The "Classics" Grimlock, "Generations" Thundercracker, and "Bot Shot" Optimus were the only three I had purchased. And the first two had botched paint jobs, with all three having some kind of loose articulation. Thundercracker was the worse. So I ended up strictly sticking with TOMY regardless if I am buying for my permanent collection or temporary/loose collection.

But also, I agree with you that they will release it. However, my gut is telling me that when they do... They might pull a "UNITED" and place these into a completely new (anniversary-based?) line. And if they do, I am hoping it is so they can cap off their Generations line with what is shown in ALL SPARK. ..... :PRAY:

I just recently canceled my Fot Max pre-order so I could hasten my savings for a trip, and then this guy is reported. Booo! Lol. Was thinking of taking some of the Fort Max cash to put towards an MP, since most seem to be under $100, but I might put it towards this guy instead, if I can manage it with my vacation fund needing desperate attention.... and it doesn't turn out to be an all but impossible to find TRU exclusive *grumbles*

Well, since it's being called FoC Metroplex, I expected FoC Metroplex.

I'm still getting this one, but if they make an actual FoC Metroplex (or if a third party does) I'll be all over that too (and that's what I'd rather have honestly).

This one fits in well with Classics/Generations, but not so much WfC/FoC.

Supposedly this won't hit until 2014 (for the 30th anniversary) so you should have plenty of time.

Meaning that we may see them as early as September/October, just in time for the holiday season.

If you do BBTS (who has POL and doesn't charge you until an item is instock) it shouldn't be a problem (assuming you have internet access overseas).
