Excuse my ignorance, but... WTF is a cord/cable holder???? :HEADHURTS:
Just sayin', you'd think they'd hit the packaging up with some "suggested use" images... 8-}

My mind goes to "condoms". But more interesting than that, I wonder if they DID have TF Condoms, that were limited editions, how many future babies would there be, simply because collectors just couldn't open that Optimus condom? :lol:

The Decepticon condoms would be empty packages, I think. Lots of Decepticon babies. :lol:

Usually, its a Comb shaped thing that fits either on or under a desk and threads the indidual cords you might be using in your computer setup so that they aren't a huge tangled rats nest and pulling on your mouse does not result in a knot of wires yanking the printer off with the speakers. Or a lot of people will position one or two to keep anything running underneath their desk out of their feet.

And whilke this goes well enough with a Blaster USB hub, Magnus as speakers, and whatever Fort Max's noggin was used for, I really don' see how Metroplex's noggin is "comb shaped" or "useful".

Thanks for the explanation! So if it goes under your desk... why does it need to be Metro? :HEADHURTS:

I guess it's like others have said: collector's item. Cause this makes no useful sense. I could understand a wallet or some cell-phone charm (not that American phones even have hook openings for the charms), etc.

You know what'd be even better and limited? A METROPLEX MOTORCYCLE HELMET. That would be appropriately epic. :BOWDOWN:

Motorcycle helmet=Awesome

Gotta modify my previous explanation though. What I think of as a cord holder is this: Image

or

But as I browse the internet I'm seeing things that look like those slap bracelets and are used to wrap cords with a little more pizzazz than say your average ziptie.

I suspect, going by the red thing coming out of Metroplex's neck, that this is what they are going for. I thought it was a cardboard insert of some kind going into his neck and holding his head in place, but now I'm not so sure.
