Metroplex Eye Accessory from Dr. Wu

It looks as though new third-party company Dr. Wu is working on a rather obscure accessory for your Generations Scourge, an eye from Metroplex. G1 fans will remember the episode "Ghost in the Machine" where Starscream's ghost made a deal with Unicron's severed head that involved procuring him a new set of eyes. Starscream's ghost possessed Scourge's body and set out to steal Metroplex's optics. Images mirrored below from the Transformers Galaxy Hong Kong Fans Group facebook page.

That's a bit of a stretch if ya ask me. There's a lot better things for 3rd party toy makers to make. If you wanna be obscure? How bout making some new crablegs for octopunch in crab mode. That would be nice.

Hey, Takara made a clear plastic version of Hot Rod to commerate when he was in the glow of the Maxtix. Why not an accessory that a character held in one episode? We also need Metroplex's transforming cog, Galvatron's "Ultimate Weapon", everything Wheeljack ever made, and a "Quintesson Journal".

If I wanted one bad enough, I could apparently just make a resin cast of an olive.

You wanna' do stuff that only appeared in one post-movie episode? Start with that 3-faced Quintesson who created the Transorganics, complete with mask covering the one face that the Dweller mangled, and make him in scale with the Impossible Toys Quints. THEN I'll pre-order two or three eyes and a Unicron head.

Great yes, but obscure. At least Metroplex's eye was an artifact used in the plot of an episode. The rubber ducky was just a (very funny) joke.

There was a canceled Botcon exclusive Rubber Ducky.

I know it seems silly, but some people will buy it. I think Wu is starting off slow to build more operating costs. Give him/them a chance, they might surprise us.
