If only I could believe that's how he would actually look instead of no doubt ending up bright white.

Better keep him away from the windows.

HOLY. CRAP.

Hasbro has finally outdone themselves. And made up for FOC Bruticus, Transformers Animated, and Transformers Prime all at once.

Now, please Hasbro, keep that momentum going. Do I hear Trypticon? Stateside Fortress Maximus? Generations style updates to all G1 combiners that don't have pathetically skinny limbs and hands?

Get this right, and my third-party spending will come back to you.
Want: Universe Jetfire.

personally, I am offended. MANY have tried to wrestle the title from Fort Max and none have EVER. You can recite numbers of 22 this and 23/24 inches that but I WILL NOT believe it until I see a SIDE BY SIDE comparison. Metroplex looks like he needs to eat something. He is SKINNY.

Erm, nobody wanted to make a toy as colossal as Fortress Maximus. Until today, that is. :twisted: I'm not seeing how it's so offensive. It's about time he retired his title of "Largest Transformer Toy". Let another character have their turn.

If I know Hasbro, they'll release him dirty white like Drift. Tomy'd probably release him like their bright white version. Though my Encore came in a mix bag of bright and drab white.

Yes. The only question is how, exactly, they get Trypticon to transform into the Nemesis. I want a Trypticon figure as well, but I suspect we won't get one unless Metroplex sells very, very well.

Good thing I'm planning on buying him. Love having more Fall of Cybertron characters to work with.

I hope they do the Metrotitan repaint (though it may be an eHobby exclusive) and I also hope that they do an updated Scorponok and Trypticon.


You mean it can fit on your shelf? :lol: I wonder where to put this... $125USD is not bad, considering Reissue Maximus price. Now to hope it stays below $325SGD when it hits.

Really digging this. Ah well, time to pass Maximus for this. I can barely afford 1.

My first reaction was very positive but after a night's sleep and a good long look at the pictures I'm not as wowwed as I was. Articulation looks like it's going to be pretty limited, the proportions are very spindly and I'm not a fan of the Prime and Arcee images in the command centre setting the scale like that. If this is designed to interact with Legend/Legion figures surely any scale references should relate to that size class. I will probably still pick this up but if we've already got confirmation of a Metrotitan repaint by the time it hits I'm more likely to skip 'Plex for some nice Destron flavoured goodness.

I'm not paying that much for a figure that can't raise his arms to the side. It could have been amazing but it's just missed the mark.

Edit: I've had another look and noticed that leg articulation is limited and transformation is almost G1. All that money is going towards size, not inventiveness.

Okay so you're like, meh, not impressed.

Hasbro makes a Transformers toy bigger than Fortress Maximus, something that has never been done in the past 20+ years.

Wow, what toy or toyline does impress his excellency?

Well, it's still a very early model of the actual toy (it doesn't even have the sound chip and LED's installed yet, just a painted prototype the designers hastily did up for the expo), and there's no concrete way to verify if it has or hasn't got sideways arm articulation.

As for the legs, I think it's good enough at 90+ degrees. My Yamato 1/60 scale VF-1's are just as, if not more, expensive than Metroplex, and they've only got at most 50 to 60 degrees or sideways leg articulation.

That said, you do have a point regarding transformation. The city mode's a little too close to its simple G1 transformation for my liking. But...I like it enough that I'm going to let that slide.

Only thing is, where the hell am I going to find space on my shelf for a fricking two-foot-tall robot?!

it isn't set in stone that it's coming to the UK but I hope that it does

the £125 price tag isn't set in stone either! + online retailers like Ebay, Kapow & Amazon'll prob charge more for it, especially if you have to get it imported which Parcelfarce'll try n cash in on!

+ it looks a lot like the custom jobs of which we've previously seen before, + i'm sure that those also have lights & sounds.
