Amidst all the teasers so far from TFYuki for Generations Metroplex, we finally get something new to look at. Seen previously as just a small image on a box, we finally get a good look at his buddy Scamper. Not only do we get Generations Scamper, we get a comparison to his G1 self. The image has been mirrored for you.

Scamper looks pretty solid for a little guy, but some paint apps would be nice.

It looks okay, but the plastic looks smokey black. Kinda wish it looked more like this:

That looks smokey black to me too. :-?

In any case, this doesn't look like the final product, judging from the head.

Agreed.

I don't recall seeing anything that even resembles a paint app on Metroplex. Hasbro might be a bit stingy when it comes to them, but even they aren't that bad. These look like an unpainted prototype that is being used purely for scale and not for showing us the final product.

I like what I've seen so far, but wish the city mode hid the bot head and limbs better.

I have G1 Metroplex, but I don't have a G1 Scamper, so if anyone's willing to give me theirs, send me a message and I'll give you my address details.

I'd call that smokey black. Then again, in those old cartoons, I don't think they could really DO a true pitch-black black. If they did, it wouldn't animate well; you wouldn't be able to see the lines between parts. So that smokey black/charcoal color was probably their "black".

I wish they'd kept the wheels on the legs instead of moving them to the arms.

But let's keep this in perspective; we're nit-picking something that is almost inconsequential next to the behemoth it comes with.

Aw. What a cute little scamp.


Not crazy about the all red head, but for a freebie figure I can live with it.

Looks good. Now lets just hope it's scout class and not a legends kids meal toy.

Too late. :P

It's a "new Legends" class toy, as opposed to an "old Legends" class which is now known as "Legion" class. The new Legends class falls in between Legion and Commander, but is just a smidge shorter than the latter. It's the same size class as the new Optimus w/ Roller and Bumblebee w/ Blazemaster toys are.

I dunno, Scamper, that simple transforming b@stard, was always one of my favorite G1 bots when I was a kid.

Six wheeled cars are cool.
Black Cars are cool.
And he was a small figure that could easily fit in my pocket and I could take to school.
Win Win Win!

While G1 Metroplex WAS awesome, let's face it, he turned into a building.
And if he was to go to school, he'd need his own seat on the bus.

I'll agree that I hope the final product is done in a nice glossy black plastic, not the prototype grey that have him in in the sample shots. But overall, I'm looking forward to this little guy almost as much as Metroplex himself.

cool looking figure, hope they repaint/remold him down the road.

No, Scamper does not need more paint apps. He needs to be pure jet black, maybe with one red Autobot symbol. And he doesn't need that stupid-ass Bumper headsculpt.

Hasbro, I don't care how badly you screw up 'Plex but you need to get Scamper right.

He looks kinda like Generations Jazz/Sideswipe to me
Mold-that is.

Not sure I'm diggin' the red head, but Scamper looks pretty good. Can't wait for this Metroplex to be released. Super excited about it.

Why does everyone think these are the final colors. They obviously aren't. Just like that FOC Megatron prototype that we saw earlier. They always color test shots differently for reference
