Given the scale, Metroplex seems reasonably priced. (hell I paid just as much for Omega Supreme).

The bigger stumbling block is where would I keep him.

I hope Im able to find the first 3 on the list. That MP Acid Storm looks amazing. If I can get those 3 and reissue Fort Max this will be an EPIC year for me. :D :grin: :BOOM:

Metroplex is only $100!? WHAT?! I thought that thing was going to be like, I dunno, $200! Considering the scale, and Hasbro's cheapness, that thing is a steal!

Gosh dangit.

Looks like I can't have both Acid Storm and Soundwave. Both characters I like... Sour grapes.

Didn't they say at Toy Fair that Metroplex would be $125? Not that I'd complain about $99.99.

I will get for sure soundwave, but metroplex I dunno, I wish they would have made him more fall of cybertron instead G1 look.

Better materials, more parts (unconfirmed), all 5 cassettes... all adds up to more labour and assembly costs.

Eeeeexcellent. Metroplex shall be mine! Now we only need to pray that they stock them in far more numbers than MP-10 so we don't have to beat the scalpers (and each other) to be first in line.

i knew the mps would be overpriced, hopefully soundwaves high price point will make it a shelf warmer and ill have time to save up the money. I am a bit surprised at metroplex only be $100, thought he was going to be $125 or more. Still going to pass on him though especially since soundwave is so damn much.

I'm gonna keep some extra cash ready for prices to adjust higher. What's to say they won't. Remember how TRU MP OP kept going up every freakin' time it sold out? :BANG_HEAD: :VEHI:

Metroplex was mentioned at Toyfair for $125. If TRU gets it, you can bet they will raise the price from $99.00 to $120.00 or higher like they did with the MP-10 Optimus. My store only got 4 total during Christmas and was selling them higher than the sku price of $99 so dont get to excited my fellow fans if your hunting for him at TRU. :-(

That's a pretty good price considering his size.

Double it for Australia of course ... despite dollar parity.

Now *that* would be a disaster, especially for all non-US fans. Given the shipping costs and having to hunt it down on the secondary market then...*shudders*

We'll see. >:oP

Just grab the Takara version, there's enough Asia-based western oriented online stores that make it easy to do so.
