Maybe I missed it but is there an estimated release date for this gigantic piece of plastic awesomeness?

After seeing that pic, I so need to get a G1 Metroplex.

It's odd... but I DO get a real aircraft carrier vibe from this guy now. Strange that I didn't from the original. Maybe it's just the added length? That kind of adds a real third mode to me, instead of a forgettable battle platform robot-sitting-down mode.

Maybe like how the Japanese treated Fort Max, maybe Metroplex's battle station mode could instead be used as a battleship mode. ;)

I can see it as a land-based mobile airfield, even a spacefaring vessel, but a seafaring aircraft carrier is something that seems unconvincing to me.

Aw come on. It's just about as good as those three boat bits from Tidalwaaaave. ;)

Between those three variations, this, and the various Classics Seaspray variants... we're getting a pretty good fleet o' boats.

Now. Where is our triple changer aircraft carrier, Hasbro?? Another possible Titan class for you? Crossover USS Flagg?

That's different: he was intended to be a ship in the first place.

Now we get to see the color differences between the Hasbro and Takara version of Metroplex. Hasbro's is more pearl white and Takara's will be off white. Honestly, I prefer Hasbro's paint job this time round.

I meant like a space battleship, like how Fort Max's battle station mode was repurposed into. ;)

Wait, is the figure we're looking at in these teasers the Takara version? I assumed it was a prototype, what with the lack of black and the yellow stripes indicating landing zones that was previously seem on the model at Toy Fair.

This piece looks amazing.

I've, more or less, given up on HasTak in general. I wasn't a fan of the changes to their products over the last couple years so I stopped buying them.

However, this can bring me, and others like me, back into giving HasTak another chance...

...Unless, of course, this IS an SDCC exclusive. That would be a fail moment in my eyes.

We never said that. There will be a general release and a SDCC repaint/repackage. I know, the original announcement was badly worded...

He's at it again! TFYuki continues with his Transformers Generations Titan Class Metroplex teasers. Here he's seen with G1 Metroplex in robot mode, who only comes up to the upcoming figure's knees!

Please I hope what im seeing is some knees that are able to bend on Big Metroplex :-? That would be a huge plus if he could do that. Still might buy him though.

What's the point of showing teasers of a figure that has already been photographed by the public at a major toy show ?

Because those pics did not do a good job of showing just how MASSIVE this guy is going to be. These pics do.

That was the pic I was waiting for... a comparison between robot modes. I hope they post more.

Just wow. Amazing. Glad Metroplex is getting some love, since his old version — awesome though it may be — was always too small for my tastes.

Maybe this is the first indicator that Hasbro is starting to pay a little attention to scale!!!

Ha ha ha ha ha. :grin: :lol: :D ;)

Yeah, okay. I know better.

Wow. The more I see of this, I think it might actually be bigger than Fort Max. I didn't believe it at first, but dagum. Look at 'dem legs!

Yeah, it's how it sizes up to other figures that TFYuki is teasing, not the figure itself.

And, there's a chance that this could be the Japanese version, which has *not* been seen yet.

Just have fun with it. :grin: Yes, we know what he looks like, but we haven't had many size comparisons. Also, we haven't seen the Takara version yet and this seems to be it.

Considering most of the figures this year are from the IDW continuities, we need a Voyager class Fort Max to go with Metroplex here. I'm sorry, but Fort Max is the size of Jetfire in the IDW comics

If a Voyager sized knock-off can do it, I'm sure Hasbro can do it.

I'm confused what you mean. If it's Hasbro... then it's not a knock-off. (???)

That said, with the introduction of the Titan "class" — I'm doubting Hasbro would venture to put forth a Fort Max at anything less than this big. I think the fans would gripe too much.

Ahhh. Funny, I thought that was epic-ly fantastic. They managed to work in THREE new gimmicks (including a spring loaded launched), new separate modes, a little more articulation, and two bonus figures... all for about $20 plus shipping. How can anyone complain about that? After putting mine together, I immediately ordered a second one just because I thought it was a great value.

*puts mini fort max on top of big fort max*

I love doing that with Legends figures. :lol: I have RtS Legends G1 Megetron sitting on Armada Megatron's head (who is holding AM Micron Megatron, haha). I also have Cybertron Legends Jetfire on Energon Jetfire-shirtXIronhide-pants.

I have an actual KO Fort Max that is only about the size of a voyager. His head still comes off, but doesn't transform. He stands at the foot of Brave Maximus. I would like to display this new Metroplex with my G1 version, but I also want to display the new one with my classics.

Wow. Now I REALLY want some tiny, tiny versions of these bases... like Legends... or better, WST size. Like, as small as they could engineer them. That would be AWESOME. I want to put them in Metroplex's little chest pocket.
