Eh...no. That is NOT FoC Metroplex, sorry Hasbro. That's just a bigger version of G1 Metroplex:

This thing looks AWESOME!

Now I really hope they bring out a Trypticon of the same scale...

I'm not a Metroplex fan but if I were I would start to desperately save up money. As it is, well, I'm impressed but not $125 + massive shipping and customs impressed.

Personally I hope for a legions-class Trypticon but I suppose that if this guy sells enough they might consider it.

I'll be getting him for sure. $125 isn't bad for something so huge (though I'll likely spend more as I'll be getting the Takara version, not Hasbro's).

I just wish (hope) they do a second version which is more accurate to his appearance in the game.

I wouldn't bet on it. The most they can do is give him a slightly different head and round off some parts here and there.

It's not look like FOC version. It's a Generations line with new mod.
I still want him... but not with in this year...

I take it the Japanese are more gentle in "violating" you? :P

This guy will have a special spot on my shelves, but which one: Cyberverse or regular size?

Wow. Total surprise. But I'm definitely getting it. Finally a good representation of Metroplex. It's not game accurate? Doesn't matter. Personally, I'd LOVE a Metrotitan repaint.

Price works out roughly the same (maybe SLIGHTLY cheaper, and that's with postage factored in) but the big plus is I don't have to worry about distribution and whether it will make it to town or if I'll have to take an hour drive north and travel around the city trying to find him.

Yep. Hopefully someone will do a 3rd party add-on kit to mod him (mainly the chest and thin legs) to make him more game accurate. Has/Tak's engineers should have taken notes on what Planet X did with Genesis.

Oh I agree. This is a great updated Metroplex and should fit in well with any Classics collection. It's just not a good representation of FoC Metroplex. I'll get him for sure still, but I'd still like one which was more game accurate.

I want I want I waaaaaaaant

I mean I neeeeeeeeeeeeeeed.

Metroplex was one of my all time fave toys.... He was forever present as I gre up through the different iterations of g1... The headmasters... Through to the micro masters he was always present as my autobot hq... I am really looking forward to tf 4. That way I hope there won't be many toys that interest me.

Fortress Maximus is still top of my list followed by this beast. I just ordered foc grimlock... I passed on nearly all other toys due to the price and reduced sizes. Guess they were saving all the plastic for this guy...

Is there a 3rd city mode?

It is most definitely impressive and it's taxing my temptation meter to its limit but I do have to agree with xyl360, it's not FoC Metroplex, it's G1 supersized Metroplex. It lost points with me for looking TOO much like it's original counterpart which I know sounds rather odd, but I guess it's just not what I was expecting. The customs that I have seen done of FoC 'Plex are vastly superior in every respect and much more faithful in keeping with that look. Although, I'm not actually seeing FoC anywhere on that box, it's just implied in the headline. If it is just an homage to the original, purely a Generations thing, then they have done just fine and I won't bitch about it and they can rape my wallet at their leisure while I try to figure out where the hell I'm going to put something that huge.

i can think of far better things to spend $125 on, would rather have had a voyager or leader class metroplex. Yeah it looks good but not good enough to drop that much on a dust collector.

Here's a question that probably won't get answered as it's very easy for it to get lost in all this hype.

Is this Metroplex's design completely original, being just an modernized update to the original design like what any Classics-style figure has been? Or, is it actually based on some existing version of Metroplex (like, is there an IDW G1 version of Metroplex)?

Fall Of Cybertron Metroplex is based on Metroplex's appearance in Fall Of Cybertron, an electronic video game based on Hasbro's The Transformers characters.

I'd say it's leaning toward G1 over FoC. But with a modern twist. This figure reminds me of an aircraft carrier on wheels. I'd like to see images of his rumored "third mode". If it's the city mode of old, that's what he might be displayed as.

Yep. I think it is supposed to be FoC Metroplex, but all they did was scale up/slightly alter the G1 design instead of doing an extensive replication of the FoC character model (which is what I was really hoping for so I'm sad :().

I don't know, if it was supposed to be FoC Metroplex it would certainly look like FoC Metroplex. I think that they made a reboot with inspiration from among other things the videogame.

FOC Metroplex was clearly based on G1 Metroplex in the first place though, or was anyone confusing him with someone else when he showed up in the game trailers? He's a big white robot and the head is similar, and he transforms by sitting down. Not a huge departure in designs like say Beast Wars vs G1 Megatrons, Silverbolts or Rampages. IDW, FOC and pretty much every other version of Metroplex I've seen has taken it's basic design from the G1. Even the Cybertron one with it's crazy alt mode had the basics down.

Look, what I was asking is if this particular Metroplex's design was a completely original G1-homage design or based on any existing G1-homage design. ALL Metroplexes homage the G1 design, but this is NOT the G1 design. This is some updated version of the G1 design, and I was asking if this particular updated design was made specificially for this toy or if it was taken from an existing source like a comic or something.

I know it isn't the FOC design, despite both this design and the FOC design being updated versions of the G1 design, but neither fit the bill in a precise manner for what design this Metroplex toy represents.

Cyberverse! As a city sized transformer....... Cyberverse is the closest it fits I think. But this will probably be the only Metroplex I'll ever get. (unless some other party comes out with something better soon, which I doubt) But it is SWEEEEET! =P~

I for one am very glad that they're doing an itty-bitty version as well! :lol: This is awesome, but it's also WAY out of the question for me to even consider buying it. I have neither room, nor the want to drop that much money on a single thing. The Cyberverse version however, will likely stand proud with my Prime CVs on my computer desk here. :) Which G1 continuity featured a normal-transformer-sized Metroplex, by the way? Or was that Fort Max?

What stops me from collecting the MP line is scale. If Hasbro does eventually move on to doing all of Seasons 1-2, there will be no room to display them. Thats why I always joke about them being for coffee tables. I have my 3 MP seekers in jet mode doing a flyover in triangle formation. (right on my coffee table lol)

Yeah, they definitely eat space like there's no tomorrow, but man are they ever worth it. If you want something true to G1, you can't do better than the MPs that have emerged beginning with MP-10. If that's really what you're truly after, I would recommend selling off some of your other gap-fillers (CHUGs and 3rd party stuff) to get the money together as well as the space required for the MPs. I'm telling you, once you get MP-10 in hand, and even Lambor (and of course the upcoming Soundwave) you'll realize that it scratches that G1 itch in a way that nothing else has ever come close to.
