Weapon: Twin Sonic Cannons
Site sponsor BigBadToyStore has come into possession of an official picture of Titan Class Metroplex's diminuative sidekick, Scamper. This suggests that US preorders for this behemoth will go live fairly quickly. SEIBERTRON.com will, of course, inform you when the listing is live, but for now let us have a good look at the final accessory to the Titan that is Metroplex: Scamper.

His arms seem to be mistransformed...The hands are facing out away from his body, as if someone twisted his arm at the elbow...

Indeed, it would make the robot's arms look neater if they were flipped over. Another foible by Hasbro's PR company.

If true, that would indicate a pivot/hinge joint instead of a ball/socket, which doesn't really work for a figure of that size anyways. Little dude's gonna be a mini-contortionist.

The ball joints are visible at the knees and elbows, which makes for pretty good articulation for the size. The forearms are obviously swapped. If the toy actually ships like this it's going to be a 5 second job putting it right.

I don't think they are swapped. I think he;s suffering from Energon Starscream hands, remeber he had a thumb and two molded fingers? Scamper's got a thumb showing on his arms, and it curls inward. So does the backside of his hands, like the back of a cupped fist or he's grabbing his car fender/shirtcuff that's just slightly too long for his arm... But maybe that's just me.

To those who think the forearms are swapped: trust me, they're not. I envisioned him transforming in my mind, keeping the position of the back wheels on his arm in mind (note the circular details on the outside of the arms), and if they are indeed swapped, the wheels would end up on the inside of the car instead of the outside. :-B

Besides, the finger detailing is in the correct spot in the image, but the thumbs are lost.

OMG is that a legends sized toy that actually has ball joints on both the knees and elbows, plus a gun ???? :shock:

Looks like the first legends class figure actually worthy of being sold instead of being given free in a Mcdonalds Happy Meal. :ic$:

He's more the size of a Commander (as "Legends" is now used for figures in between Legion and Commander Class) or interestingly enough, the size of G1 Scamper :lol:

Yeah, that's no Legends toy as we know it. That's a new size with an old name.

some of the TFPrime Cyberverse were pretty good. Cliffjumper is amazing for what he does and his transformation, given the size.

Im not thrilled with the red head either, but in the G1 cartoon didnt Scamper get about 5 seconds of airtime in only one episode ? If he's that obscure, I can live with it.

Try watching Carnage in C-Minor and Five Faces of Darkness, that's only 2 of the 5 he appeared in. The others are Thief in the Night, Ghost in the Machine and The Ultimate Weapon.
