He's at it again! TFYuki continues with his Transformers Generations Titan Class Metroplex teasers. Here he's seen with G1 Metroplex in robot mode, who only comes up to the upcoming figure's knees!

Please I hope what im seeing is some knees that are able to bend on Big Metroplex :-? That would be a huge plus if he could do that. Still might buy him though.

What's the point of showing teasers of a figure that has already been photographed by the public at a major toy show ?

Because those pics did not do a good job of showing just how MASSIVE this guy is going to be. These pics do.

That was the pic I was waiting for... a comparison between robot modes. I hope they post more.

Just wow. Amazing. Glad Metroplex is getting some love, since his old version — awesome though it may be — was always too small for my tastes.

Maybe this is the first indicator that Hasbro is starting to pay a little attention to scale!!!

Ha ha ha ha ha. :grin: :lol: :D ;)

Yeah, okay. I know better.

Wow. The more I see of this, I think it might actually be bigger than Fort Max. I didn't believe it at first, but dagum. Look at 'dem legs!

Yeah, it's how it sizes up to other figures that TFYuki is teasing, not the figure itself.

And, there's a chance that this could be the Japanese version, which has *not* been seen yet.

Just have fun with it. :grin: Yes, we know what he looks like, but we haven't had many size comparisons. Also, we haven't seen the Takara version yet and this seems to be it.

Considering most of the figures this year are from the IDW continuities, we need a Voyager class Fort Max to go with Metroplex here. I'm sorry, but Fort Max is the size of Jetfire in the IDW comics

If a Voyager sized knock-off can do it, I'm sure Hasbro can do it.

I'm confused what you mean. If it's Hasbro... then it's not a knock-off. (???)

That said, with the introduction of the Titan "class" — I'm doubting Hasbro would venture to put forth a Fort Max at anything less than this big. I think the fans would gripe too much.

Ahhh. Funny, I thought that was epic-ly fantastic. They managed to work in THREE new gimmicks (including a spring loaded launched), new separate modes, a little more articulation, and two bonus figures... all for about $20 plus shipping. How can anyone complain about that? After putting mine together, I immediately ordered a second one just because I thought it was a great value.

*puts mini fort max on top of big fort max*

I love doing that with Legends figures. :lol: I have RtS Legends G1 Megetron sitting on Armada Megatron's head (who is holding AM Micron Megatron, haha). I also have Cybertron Legends Jetfire on Energon Jetfire-shirtXIronhide-pants.

I have an actual KO Fort Max that is only about the size of a voyager. His head still comes off, but doesn't transform. He stands at the foot of Brave Maximus. I would like to display this new Metroplex with my G1 version, but I also want to display the new one with my classics.
Re: Transformers Generations Titan Class Metroplex Teaser Images Continue (1483666)
Posted by gothsaurus on May 1st, 2013 @ 2:01pm CDT
Wow. Now I REALLY want some tiny, tiny versions of these bases... like Legends... or better, WST size. Like, as small as they could engineer them. That would be AWESOME. I want to put them in Metroplex's little chest pocket.

No, I'm not talking about the Kabaya candy toy.

Skip to 16:50 in this video by the awesome Thew to see said knock-off Fort Max

And correctin myself earlier, it's deluxe class sized.

AHhh. The non-hasbro KO. Yeah, it was decent quality. I need to compare its size to the new Kabaya.

Does anyone have the OLD Kabaya that could do a size comparison?

Yeah I've had enough of all these teaser pics but I admit this latest one is a good one. The way I figure to take down this leviathan we need FP Bruticus, Maketoys Devastator, and FP Menasor to take down Metroplex piece by piece...'nuff said! :DEVIL: :VEHI:

OK, that's quite a size difference. The only reason I can wait for this guy to come out is the price.

I have the (new?) Kabaya figure. It's decently sized but would be all for an IDW styled Voyager Max. Put him in the same wave as Tarn and I'll not moan about Hasbro again for a year.

Posted by gothsaurus on May 1st, 2013 @ 4:09pm CDT
Ha. Yeah, if they label him IDW Fort Max and add a headmaster gimmick, I'll grin. I'd still hope for a full size Titan later though!

I like how we're assuming Hasbro will answer our calls and make toys of Fortress Maximus, Tarn (let's just go ahead and throw in the remainder of the Decepticon Justice Division while we're at it), and Star Saber. :P

I'm really not assuming that. Are you assuming that? I'd like a modern Star Saber, but since he's not really been in the IDW books, I'd rather Dai Atlas first. (and a Deluxe Jihaxus to round out the Golden Age Avengers, why not?)
I'd like it. I'll be surprised if it happens any time soon, but then I was pleasantly surprised to see Gen Springer, Blitzwing and Trailthinger so anything can happen. I would expect figures of characters Hasbro created themselves first though, before any IDW originated creations, but then again, we got Drift...and hell, who could have foreseen Metroplex getting a toy this big at all? I've learned to stop expecting anything from Hasbro unless it's a relatively obvious repaint, and even those don't get done all the time.

You must've missed out on this, then.

If Hasbro decides to produce a toy based off these designs, and, if possible, it can pull off a Brainmaster-ception gimmick like the Victory toy, you better believe that thing would be bought.

Agree, he's easily the best reviewer on youtube, it's a shame he doesn't do reviews more often.

Man you guys got me all excited. I thought I read that IDW Star Saber and Tarn would be released in the same wave and I just frantically searched the news and this thread to see if you guys were serious...

Then I realized it was just Wishful Thinking...

Anyways: DANG HE'S HUGE!!! I had to look up a review for the original Metroplex just to get somewhat of a size reference! If anyone gets this guy, I think you might have to make sure you have a separate bedroom to store the guy! :lol:
