Transformers Generations Titan Class Metroplex SDCC?

Postby El Duque » Sat Apr 27, 2013 8:49 am

Motto: "I ain't got time to bleed!"
Weapon: Gattling Gun
Transformers Generations Titan Class Metroplex SDCC exclusive? Site sponsor Robotkingdom has updated their pre-order page for the ACG-CON HK Exclusive version with a description that states it's expected to have the SDCC color scheme. This actually coincides with insider info that we were given prior to Metroplex's big reveal at Toy Fair 2013. As we know from past SDCC's Hasbro isn't afraid to bring out the big guns for their exclusives. Last year Transformers fans got the Fall of Cybertron Bruticus box set and they released the massive Avengers S.H.I.E.L.D. Super Helicarrier. No hints as to what the new the deco will be, but the G1 mold did have one repaint as Metrotitan.

Robotkingdom wrote:Description :
Preorder.
Available in September 2013.

This item is expected to have SDCC Style colour.

More Information will be updated on our website and facebook.


Please note these are merely stock images of the retail release from the Robotkingdom pre-order page and not indicative of the potential exclusive.

Great! If that's going to be the exclusive colors, watch the retail version be some hideously colored crap. If that's so, I'll get neither.

I hope this isn't a repeat of the FoC Combaticons deal from last year, because if we finally get an amazing Metroplex mold and Hasbro gives us the more affordable retail release as Skittleplex it will be depressing. As expensive as this mold is going to be already I know I will never be able to afford a SDCC version. :-(

For all that is good and holy, please just be a repaint into Metrotitan as a powered up version of Metroplex... :PRAY: I want to be able to afford a traditionally-colored Metroplex, not what others are calling Skittleplex.

There's gotta be something you can do with that right arm. Just look at it, sticking out awkwardly from the side there in city mode.

They've put a gun (?) on top of it but it still looks silly. :P

Anyways, can't see the SDCC version being a Metrotitan... Most fans will only buy one version, and you can bet they'll go with whichever one has the classic colorscheme - exclusive or not.

I'm hoping it's just a super shiny version with silver chrome or metallic paint or something like that. That way, it can just be "Metroplex Bling Version" who appeals to those who like shiny toys, with the retail version being the regular non-shiny beauty of a figure that we've seen pics of all this time.

Or, it could be that old "G2 'Las Vegas-decoed' golden Metroplex" idea that was suggested by one of the hosts on an old Seibertron.com Twincast Podcast episode from way back when.

I really don't want to have to shell out another mountain of cash for another SDCC exclusive.

You're just now noticing this?

It doesn't look awkward to me. You can probably position the arm however you want, so then you won't have that awkardness poking out.

Anyways, can't see the SDCC version being a Metrotitan... Most fans will only buy one version, and you can bet they'll go with whichever one has the classic colorscheme - exclusive or not.


I honestly think they would, but if it is decoed as Metrotitan, he will probably be represented as either Metrotitan himself or Metroplex in a powered-up form. This isn't the first time they used alternate decos based off of other characters as a powered up form. Armada Starscream, for example, was decoed into Thundercracker in toy form, but in the show itself, this represented Starscream "powered-up".

I could get behind this.

Ok, looking at it I think I see a shoulder swivel but no shoulder out swivel. I see what it looks like to be a ratchet swivel elbow (complete elbow articulation). I think I see a waist swivel (thats a guess though). And to top it off, it has a leg/thigh ratchet up and out swivel. I just hope please have some knee joints.

If this thing has those joints I just said, then that would make it Actually Poposeable. :shock:

Just imagine a Two foot Articulated Transformer. :DANCE:

Seriously, we've had these images for a while now, so this is not really surprising.

If he didn't have a waist swivel, he wouldn't be able to pull off his base mode.

Image

And yes, his arm can swivel out, he has knees, his "hip" swivels are on his knees, and he obviously has ratcheting elbows (if he didn't, his elbows would get floppier and floppier as time wears them down).

I know we have seen these photos for a while now. And you just repeated what I just said about the joints I just didn't want to put my word on it.

And if you look at the abs and the crotch part thats straight. Its not turning from left to right. So I do not see a waist swivel. All ii see is a tiny gap between those parts where there could be a possible left to right swivel.

And my initial concern was that if the knees could bend or it the arms can go straight out like for example:the new Springer figure can do. Can you answer that? And where do you see the waist turning.

It'll either be Metrotitan, or it'll be the TakaraTomy version in special edition packaging and have the second gun. Probably go for like $150.00 instead of $99.99

I'm almost sure of it.

That's... actually plausible. Wouldn't have thought of the latter.

I'll keep on with the theory that it will be repainted as Metrotitan/powered-up Metroplex, but that is definitely worth considering.

Probably go for like $150.00 instead of $99.99


More like "it would go for $175.00 instead of $125.00".

Well, TRU has it listed for $99.99 in Canada's computers. The US is usually the same or cheaper. I can't imagine it going for $125.00...at first.

Still, $175.00 sounds likely, given that it's CC.

Look real closely at the red circles I've provided.

Note the differences between both modes' placement of the wheels and the crotch (or rather, butt for the base mode).

Back at Toy Fair, they had said the base price was $125.00, so that was the basis of that.

Did we have an article saying that Toys "R" Us had listed it in their database as $99.99? If we had reported it, I was probably out of town and without internet access when it was reported.

Well, TRU has it listed for $99.99 in Canada's computers. The US is usually the same or cheaper. I can't imagine it going for $125.00...at first.

Still, $175.00 sounds likely, given that it's CC.


Back at Toy Fair, they had said the base price was $125.00, so that was the basis of that.

Did we have an article saying that Toys "R" Us had listed it in their database as $99.99? If we had reported it, I was probably out of town and without internet access when it was reported.


We did. Over a month ago. It's not always fresh in people's minds. http://www.seibertron.com/transformers/ ... kus/26840/

More like "it would go for $175.00 instead of $125.00".

Ah, okay.

It's rather odd placing MP Soundwave at a higher price point than Metroplex, since all Soundwave is is a Leader-class-ish figure with diecast and little cassette minions, whereas Metroplex is two feet tall and loaded with electronics.

Not really. Soundwave may be Leader-sized, but he's exceedingly intricate and and complexly engineered with tons of tiny pieces worked into him.

Metorplex may be a giant with some electronics, but he's mostly hollow with a bunch of folding parts to both make his altmodes work and to adhere to toy safety laws.
If you've read Exodus, wanna read the War For Cybertron comic? PM me.

True. I had forgotten to take into account for the intricate transformation of Soundwave.
