  • The US version will be white, the Takara will be more true to the white and coloring of the G1 Metroplex
  • The Japanese version will include two guns, the US version just 1 gun
  • It is believed the Japanese version will feature chromed/metallic paint apps the US will not, but this is not confirmed. When we asked Takara did not say yes or no

Not when Spike never bonded with Fortress in Japan. ;)


The girl bonds with the figure? How?

I was wondering that as well. That, and wondered why he of all people could have missed an opportunity to make a Crossformer joke.

That, and Spike merged with Cerebros. Which makes your suggestion be validly amusing... As he would be a racing "queen". :lol:

How come we don't get two guns? Scumbag Hasbro doesn't include a second gun in their release of Metroplex...

2 guns? That's points for Takara, but I'm not sure an extra gun is worth the extra $100.

Have you guys considered that the extra money goes to his "going west-ern" themed musical called "Have Extra Gun, Will Import"? :-?

GT-R Maximus = Fortress Maximus

Her name is Fortress Maximus? That's... odd.
"Her"? :???:

Oh, you mean the Race Queen figure. Didn't see the "with the" in your original post. :oops:

The Bot is Maximus. The girl is his Race Queen.

It's cool. ;) And thanks. I'm getting this guy. Never owned an Alternity before, and the Race Queen looks rather interesting.
It's not Alternity.

It's Transformers: GT.

Also, I will SO wait for the domestic Metroplex release. =;


Just for the record: It's not Alternity. It is a collaboration with Super GT Racing, as a way to celebrate Super GT's 20th anniversary. And as we speak, GT-R Maximus is the 4th and final GT-R GT300 model. And we might see other models be added in a hopes of showing that it is more than a "simple" retooling. Namely because they have 12 more teams and around 2-3 more car models. And trust me, Alternity was just a way to wrap up Takara's original work. This is way cooler. 8)

In all cases, the whole theme is a lot more interesting than me explaining continuities (which is a subject I have been studying for the last 16 years, thanks to RPGs). Because they have fast cars, racing queens, and four GT-Rs that are Prime, Saber, Megatron, and Maximus. All I have are cookies. :lol:

Okay, okay. ;) Well, this will be the first from this line. How's that work? ;) And it's this 'Race Queen' that's got me interested. Won't lie there. :p But he does look cool as well.

WTF ??? When did white stop becoming white ? Could they be a little more specific ? Do they mean "off-white" or "bone-white" for the American version like we always get ? And I hate when they use the term "G1" without specifying whether they mean "G1 toy" or "G1 cartoon".

They most likely mean the original toy.

$150.00 more for a second gun, that's the basic gist.

No thanks.

And this is why 3rd parties flourish. Dr. Wu will come along and produce the second gun. *SMH*

I like this so much more then I ever thought I would.

The head is really nice. The Girl is awesome.(as are Saber's and Megatron's)

The Master Sword as a "Jack" is interesting. Fortress will jack up your car, Prime will swap the tires and Star Saber will refuel you.

Now you just have to pass Megatron to win!

I want that Maximus... though it sounds like the Japanese version will be the one to get. I'd probably hate the English voices anyway, as they usually sound generic and annoying. Much cooler if it spoke Japanese or didn't talk at all.

AND... i'd probably want one in darker colors too... maybe not the reds and lighter blues of Metrotitan, but the "city at night" look of Brave Maximus would be GODLY.

Actually a really huge pearly white TF would look great. :-?

But that's $100 extra. Bah, Hasbro it is. I can live without 1 extra gun.


No 2nd gun? Thank the gun laws. :lol:

Buy a 2nd Metroplex in TRU and return it without the gun. TRU will have to end up sending it back to Hasbro when the new owner returns it. So stick it right back to Hasbro. :lol:

Some see a pearly white Transformer.
40 years as a toy geek tell me to see it as a dark amber Transformer.

Dark blue Brave Maximus night time city For the Win.

Last guy who suggested stealing a Mechtech weapon straight from the package... well, he met a nasty end at the hands of the mods :lol:

So, back to Metroplex and Maximus...

I'm not too bothered with the US Metroplex having only one gun. Sure, it would ruin his symmetry a bit (I'm a symmetry-freak), but with his size, does he even need guns? :lol:
