I love these for what they are... well, the robot modes at least. Given, the base mode loses in a comparison with ANY base mode from the 80s or 90s, even. But the detailing and head sculpt — and the playability, which is I think where these excel — are all fantastic.
BUT yeah. Here's hoping there is a game-accurate Metroplex coming up the pike. I will buy the crap outta that. Bigger the better. Hopefully someone has solved the drop test issue in the past decade. Repaint it and retool it as Metrotitan and Fort Max, too.
Seriously. I want an awesome, epic base toy... something more awesome than Supreme Cheetor. (groan) And something with more play value than Unicron or Primus (basketball) base modes. ie. No ramps, garages, launchers, turrets, trap doors, hidden panels, booby traps, wenches, windows, computer panels, cockpits, elevators, driver seats or the other play set gimmicks I remember from childhood. THOSE are what I want in a city-former.
