MSRP $100, expect it to be bumped to $120-ish by TRU though.

Most of the time, If I was to see something like this in retail I wouldn't even think about grabbing 2 but man..I'm thinking about changing that thought process.. Looks great..


edit: Just noticed on the front of the box is says "Biggest autobot ever"..Maybe a trypticon in the future?

So i have a question for those that have played F.o.C, if this what will be out for retail, and there are speculations saying the SDCC exclusive is a F.o.C game accurate Metroplex, what would be changed regarding colors? Now personally i'm still in the Metrotitan boat, but i would like to hear other opinions.

I totally agree, I think HasTak would be fools not to release an equvalent to Metroplex if not Trypticon then someone damn it! :PRAY: I would have thought it would have been packaged in a platic mold/tray like Year of the Snake Omega.

What I wanna know is how many pieces in a box to retial...2 perhaps? Lets not forget the b^stard scalpers that will take every one off the shelf each time. :VEHI:

Yeah... if Metro goes for around $100-20, and we all agree he's worth more than that, then it's a sure thing that the prospectors will grab him and toss him on eBay instantly! :-x

Did any of you guys try and grab that weekend Pikachu 3DS XL???? :BOOM: It was amazing to see how quick they hit eBay!!! It's so sad to see so many people willfully ruin children's Easters/Birthdays/childhoods/etc.

I don't see TRU carrying too many, as this will be a LARGE item. That said... man... I'm very nervous to see how this will play out...

Then again, that GIANT MILLENNIUM FALCON just sits on the shelves at TRU... :-? But considering how many Falcon's we've already seen at retail, and this being the first G1 Metro since 198x... :BANG_HEAD:

I'm sure this Metroplex figure will be available to all the diehard collectors through the many sites that will have this for peeorder. So you should be able to get one if you pay attention and look out for when the preorders start.

Unless you can't afford the 120 $ and you are waiting for it to go on sale or don't want to pay the 10 $ shipping charge, good luck with that.

And just seeing the word Pikachu in this discussion which is about the big boys titan class Metroplex makes me dizzy and light headed, just gross.

This toy would not work for FOC Metroplex since FOC Metroplex has a significantly different body shape and appearance. Though both he and this toy are homages/modern updates to the G1 Metroplex design, they both resemble G1 Metroplex in very different ways. So much so they'd be better off making a whole new toy for FOC Metroplex.

To answer the question posed, it'll be a lot more medium-dark grey than white/light grey.

Ah dark gray, that makes a world of difference, I think. :lol:

Anyhow, to touch on what Sabrblade said, I do agree that while this figure is metroplex, its not F.o.C metroplex; which would make it all the more disappointing if the SDCC exclusive is metroplex in f.o.c colors rather than a counter part's (like metrotitan).

Looks great and the price is right. I'm sold. Always have been really. He's a must have.

You ain't nobody without one as far as i'm concerned. :lol:

I don't know about the TRU's near you, but (other than masterpiece figures) all of the large scale toys just warm the shelves for a long long time. Like the most recent vader transformer, the chewy/solo falcon.. Both of the huge stupid looking movie bumblebees (sorry, "ultimate" is not a good word for that toy), the most recent unicron sat for a long long time..

Even large, non transforming toys sit for a while.. Like the stupid robot (kinda), talking bane, batman, iron man, and now superman..

and not only do these things not sell, but there are a bunch of them taking up lots of space.

Hopefully TRU doesn't start learning from its mistakes, and starts cutting orders of this thing because other larger toys aren't selling.

I hate stickers, don't have the time for them or the patience.
