Hmmm....for that price, I might get this Metroplex. Get the extra red gun, and 12 legends figures? :-?

Have to say, way to fail with the Guardian PVCs. They don't look particularly interesting.

Really loving that Shockwave laboratory! :x

I'm rather... underwhelmed by Metroplex. I mean, hooray for the two guns and chrome-iness, but dang.

Twelve figures with Metroplex, you say? No images of them? Darn. :-(

Oh look, Shockwave's lab is made from recyclable plastics :lol:

I would point out the fact that it says 'figures', not necessarily legends, which Scamper is specifically referred to as. I would guess these will be more like small plastic statues, but I could be wrong.
But who will they be? Prime, Megs, Screamer and Bee for sure, and then Soundwave, Shockwave, Ironhide, Jazz, Ratchet, Thundercracker, Skywarp and Cliffjumper? :-?

None of these exclusives grab me. I don't think Metroplex comes with 12 legends; I think they'll be non-transforming, non-articulated figures. For the price plus shipping it's just to much money. Looks like the only thing from Hasbro I'll be getting is that Deadpool set.

When I first read the Metroplex post I thought wow what a great deal. But it actually says legends-scale scamper and 12 miniature figures. Meaning 12 not legends size figures. Like the others said, probably not transforming Transformers.

Never going to happen but it'd be cool to see Hasbro dust off the WST moulds for a western release as those pack ins. Given the prices those buggers can fetch that'd make that set look like a deal and a half.

Posted by Sodan-1 on June 28th, 2013 @ 6:13pm CDT
Well I think Metroplex is a bit of a spanner in the works. :-? Could make things interesting between this and Takara's version. The lab is kind of a cool little exclusive. One for the hardcore maybe.

The one thing that really bugs me in all this are lines like "this set of five non-converting 6-inch-tall figures" and "and also converts into an Autobot city."

I mean seriously: converts?! Are we actually all fans of The Converters? BotCon is the official Converters convention? Maybe I'm being petty, but it really bugs me. :-x

Where've you been? They've been using the word "convert" for a good long while.

Posted by SW's SilverHammer on June 28th, 2013 @ 6:19pm CDT
Well minus this great controversy of "conversion", I won't lie I find metroplex very underwhelming. The shockwave's lab set is very nice though, i'd shell out 60 bucks for it XD.

Shockwave's lab is kinda cool... and cheap looking.
Re: SDCC 2013 Transformers Exclusives Revealed (1498834)
Posted by megatronus on June 28th, 2013 @ 7:44pm CDT
I'm down for Metroplex.

The way I see it, I'm saving $100 bucks over the Takara version vs. paying $50 over the Hasbro version. So long as those additional paint apps/stickers cover up some of that overwhelming whiteness, I'm sold.

I wouldn't poo-poo the 12 figures just yet. I doubt they'll transform, but they might make nice little accents that help scale Metroplex appropriately - i.e. a tiny Optimus he can hold in his hand.

Again, will reserve judgement until we actually see some pics.

I actually kinda like the Titan figures...it's just a shame about Starscream's cannons and Prime's smoke stacks. Very distracting.

Posted by Metrosuplex on June 28th, 2013 @ 8:00pm CDT
Yeah, Shockwave's lab does look a bit cheap... but at least we get a Commander Predaking... which is kind of cute. I mean, is that Predaking before he grew up? :roll:

The Metroplex looks FANTASTIC to me. I'm glad to get some chromey goodness without shelling the Takara fees/prices! :DANCE: An extra $25-50 for some chrome and stickers, extra gun, and mini-figures to decorate the city? I mean, probably NOT worth the extra $50, but as this is a TF product, it's not too bad in the scheme of things.

METROOOOOOOOPLEEEEEEEEEEXXXXXX!!!!!! :KREMZEEK:

Shockwave and Metroplex WILL BE MINE!!!

Yeouch... This will sety me back atleast 250$ with the shipping... More if I count the innevitable rapetastic custom fees.

So, when will they be available at the Hasbro store?
Re: SDCC 2013 Transformers Exclusives Revealed (1498848)
Posted by xyl360 on June 28th, 2013 @ 8:21pm CDT
Well, I was hoping for Metrotitan. Oh well, money saved I guess. I'm not cancelling my preorder for the Takara version just to fight it out over another SDCC exclusive only to end up paying an absurd price for it in the end anyway (learned my lesson with Bruticus last year :P), at least not when I can just guarantee myself a Takara version. I suppose price will end up about the same on the after market for this version as a retail bought Takara version imported, but there's a lot less hassle in just keeping my preorder and skipping this.

Happy hunting to those of you who plan to snag one for $150 though. I hope Hasbro produces them in sufficient number and that the scalpers aren't too out of control this year.

I wanna know what the deal is with these 12 figures include with Metroplex is. Seeing as only FOUR Legends class figures are out, is Hasbro planning on releasing a lot more between now and August?

My guess is they'll use Prime Cyberverse figures in new decos, which wouldn't be the worst idea in the world. Still, gonna wait until Hasbro clarifies that a bit.

Sorta tempted by Shockwave's lab, but it really is pretty cheap.

At the moment the only thing I really want is the GI Joe/Transformers crossover set.

I'm not sure why some of you are assuming it's full-fledged TF toys that come with Metro. It's 99% likely it will be tiny, monochrome figurines.

For $150, you WOULDN'T get 12 Cyberverse figures. Not when the legions go for $6 apiece - 12*6 = $72.

Look at Shockwave's Lab - cheap-looking materials and short on the extras. Apply same logic to Metroplex! :roll:

That would be cool if they brought those little buggers back but I'm more inclined to think they'll be something along the lines of the small Titanium figures from a few years back, maybe scaled down. Somewhere between Micro Machine and small Titanium size, which I suppose would be right about the size of those red and purple G1 figures but I wouldn't be expecting them to be bendy. That's just my guess. I'll probably be way off though. Doesn't matter much to me since I'm still on the fence about Metroplex anyways. I'm very underwhelmed with how they designed him. He has totally impractical features (like ramps that are WORTHLESS in base or city mode) and he just looks poorly planned compared to his G1 incarnation. That and not having Slammer and Six-Gun kind of irks me slightly.

The Predacon Laboratory set with Shockwave though, that got my attention. I'd be all over that if I were down there right now. I would not be surprised if we get a re-release of that at regular retail minus the cool paint apps for Shockwave. Wouldn't surprise me if they withheld the Pred. too and made us buy that figure separately but kept it at the same price point. That's right up Hasbro's alley as far as business practices go.

Shame about that price on the Shockwave lab set. Too much for that, honestly. To be honest, I have no use for a second Shockwave, nor do I have a use for Commander Class Predaking, but the entire set with that presentation...is gorgeous.

Does make it rather difficult to pass up. It looks really great.

The only problem I have with this is that they're gonna release the leftover stock on hasbrotoystore.com a few days after the con, any metroplexes left will be gone in 6 seconds, shockwave might linger a few days, and the titans will just stay on there forever. Frankly? reeeeeally want that metroplex, just not 225$ before shipping worth.

The 12 mini-figurines are neither Legends nor Decoys, but they are particularly similar to the latter. They are either solid red (for the Autobots) or solid purple (for the Decepticons) little statuettes of Autobots and Decepticons in dynamic action poses. Each one is based on an existing Thrilling 30 Generations design and make for nice display pieces. They almost look like table top game pieces.

As not to dilute the "Transformers" trademark. If "transforms" is used too much and becomes commonplace, it's rendered generic and can no longer be protected by trademark law. We've already lost names thanks to becoming generic, last thing we need is losing the name of the toy line to the Public Domain :-B

Where do PREDACONS come from? Why, SHOCKWAVE'S lab, of course!

The normal Metroplex will be priced 100$ and available everywhere for sure. Even in Québec.

To get the SDCC version, I'll have to pay the 150$ price tag, plus at least 50$ of shipping, plus the innevitable custom fees that would be around 30$. So, that quite literally DOUBLE the price of the normal one I'd buy in store, even with 15% taxes added. So, yeah, I'll pass on the SDCC Metroplex and I will wait for it to come out in stores.

Another addition to the SDCC preview and unboxing sets: this time, Seibertron is proud to present the SDCC exclusive Shockwave's Lab set, featuring a redecoed Beast Hunters Voyager Shockwave and Cyberverse Commander Predaking. Check out the images below!

  • This is 30th anniversary celebration #2 out of 30, according to the bottom of the box
  • Box has a slip cover (hence the two different sets of pics for in-box)
  • Text from box:
SHOCKWAVE'S LAB

Deep within a secret facility, SHOCKWAVE labored, pushing DECEPTICON science to its absolute limits and beyond. His discovery of ancient Cybertronian genetic material led him to breakthrough after breakthrough, until he was able to realize a dream - one that would become an apocalyptic nightmare for the AUTOBOTS. It was there in that lab that SHOCKWAVE created his masterpiece - the resurrection of the mighty, remorseless and barbarous PREDAKING.

Ryan -

What do you think of the lab? Is it sturdy/heavy/good plastic quality?

People keep reiterating that it's not worth $50 bucks, but it IS an SDCC exclusive, and comes with a new deco of BH Voyager shockwave + mini-Predaking in addition to the lab apparatus itself.

Do you think it's worth it?

The lab is just made of the plastic you see a lot on the inside of packages for the interior tray. I think it's worth $50 for a premium repaint of a popular figure and a variant of a smaller figure that I think many of us would be $50 just for Predaking if it had been a Japanese variant. If the $50 is worth two variants to you, then go for it. But don't buy it for the "lab" which is just interior packaging and not an actual "toy" per se.

If I saw that Metroplex on the shelf, I'd get it right there and then. But I'm not going to spend $150 plus shipping and tax for something I can get for a little cheaper. Yes, yes, he's got the gun (as much as I want the extra) and the chrome-iness, but I'm not interested in the chrome and little Decoy homages: I just want Metroplex himself, Scamper, and the extra gun. I guess I can live without the extra gun.

Really want that Shockwave Laboratory set. If I got this, Predaking can just stay in that tube of his. :P

I still dislike that Titan Guardian set. For one, they should've added another Autobot, like Bumblebee. Second, they just don't look at all appealing to me. >:oP

I'm interested to learn more about the exclusive 30 toys they're doing. So the SDCC exclusives make up the first three, then the Platinum toys make up five more?

Posted by TimothyR on July 12th, 2013 @ 10:34pm CDT
i wish the mini figures that come with SDCC metroplex looked like the titan guardians..

but the titan guardians could've been sooo much better. i wish they were more like robot replicas.. i wish they were articulated.. at 6 inches, they look like down scaled G1 versions of those crappy optimus and bumblebee prime toys that are showing up at toys r us.

the guardians were cool when i thought they'd be like 3-4 inches tall and could look decent with metroplex.

oh well.

i'm tempted to pick up the sdcc metroplex, but i'm undecided at this point. i wish the face was painted silver rather than being chrome, i just don't understand the chrome, it doesn't really fit (in my opinion). i wish the retail version had the extra red gun.. it would make my decision MUCH easier.

also.. i think it's really lame that the mini figures aren't G1 versions of the characters.. instead, it just looks like a mishmash of more recently released/upcoming toys, which i think is quite lame. and to not have any paint on them at all is pretty lame as well. they managed to paint the small titanium figures.. i'd prefer something like that instead.

again, oh well.

won't all of these be available through hasbro's online store?

So how does this Shockwave repaint compare to the Takara TF Go version? I have Takara's and it's beautiful. Is the SDCC version any different/worth getting if I have the Takara version already?

As for Metroplex, I'll be skipping him. I've got the Takara version on preorder already and I actually like the gunmetal metallic gray paint Takara used on his hips better than the chrome used on the SDCC version.

The Go! version is just a more shiny and more detailed version of the normal BH version. The SDCC version, however, it colored to be more G1-accurate, with more yellow highlights, a yellow optic, and less show-accurate purple and gray placements.
