I always had a soft spot for Metroplex when Iwas a kid and seeing this new figure, well I know I was right to love that autobot!

It was about damn time Metroplex would hit the Generations toys line! Of course, now, we NEED a Trypticon update like Metroplex got!

If this figure gets a re-deco, it will surely be Metrotitan.

Having a Generations Fort Max would be amazing too, and he would maybe regain his title as the biggest Tf ever made.. by towering Metroplex by a foot or two...

Could I get a little help here guys?
I'm really not sure which one is best to get-Hasbro or Takara?
See, I prefer the Takara deco, (chrome, extra gun) and being in UK, I'd order from Kapow toys, which at the moment has both for roughly the same price (just £5 difference)

BUT

Have we seen anything to suggest Takara's comes with all the stickers? I LOVE all those stickers and it may sound a bit crazy to some but if TT's doesn't have them...well

Thanks if anyone knows

That ramp bugs the hell out of me.

I can see them not putting a launcher inside but they flat out neutered it with that wall at the top of the ramp so you can't roll a figure in and out of the tunnel. I don't get the thinking behind that.

While I welcome such a move, I'd much rather see a Decepticon counterpart come out first: more specifically, Metroplex's rival, Trypticon. In the same size in height, please. :grin:
Doubtful that (if he is done) Trypticon will be the same height. His T-Rex mode would make him quite a bit longer which would translate to him being a bit shorter to keep the weight and costs down.

Great pics!!!! :APPLAUSE: :APPLAUSE: :APPLAUSE:

But he looks terrible with Deluxes. :-? I think Metro deserves legend scale and smaller, just to get the right impression of how BIG Metro is supposed to be. I know the original Metro (G1) didn't exactly make room for Optimus and the bigger guys - you were supposed to pose him with BB and his tiny counterparts. :roll:

Just sayin', the deluxes standing there make Metro look silly... :BANG_HEAD:

Too bad I don't have space for him/my girlfriend will never let that in the apartment. :-(

Maybe if I rearrange the collection and put the MPs elsewhere...

Agreed on all 3 points, lol. The painted face made me want to go TakaraTomy. On the other hand, I love the chest sticker featuring my boy UM, Prime, Arcee, BB. It made Metroplex more 3D. I think TTomy is all solid red. Then the lack of space. I got away with FMax as he's now hidden inside the closet so the wife is okay with that.

"it's a lion...its huge!! :P

but yeah wow, this thing is massive. i dont have any of the smaller toys so it was hard getting a good idea of the size but i do still have my G1 Metroplex and knowing his size and seeing just how tiny he is next to this one....damn!!!

and i LOVE the Trypticon as a pet images...hilarious! :lol:

if this Titan line is truly the beginning of more....i wonder if they'd do a Unicron at this size. i already have that anniversary version so thats enough for me but damn i bet it be pretty cool, especially if he was as movie acurate as possible.

There are enough flat surfaces on the face and thighs of Metroplex for Reprolabels to add a lot more interest to these areas. And I wonder how many 3P add-on/upgrades we'll get. If I can't snag a SDCC version, I'm definitely sticking with this one.

What I don't like about this Metroplex, and the pictures of the G1 Metroplex, is they never have the city mode transformed right on the G1 version, and you can't transform the new Metroplex to look like the G1 transformation in city mode from what I've seen of the leg articulation and the ramp placement. The G1's leg positioning looked like this:

Thanks for the pic, I never put him like that before :BOWDOWN: #-o
What bothers me about the launcing ramp on the titan metroplex is the vertical piece of plastic that prevents us to stick a figure inside the hull with the ramp extended... a very bad desing ther, its only flaw :BOWDOWN:

Has anyone figured out where the missile can be store in Metroplex? It seems like Hasbro is usually really good about giving us a place to store missiles and such. Seems like it'd be an oversight if there's not a place to store the lone missile that I have a feeling will become one of the most valuable pieces of this set over time.

Did you try the missile launcher yet? It shoots the missile pretty far. I'm just concerned that the missile will get shot out accidentally and I'll lose it.

New Galleries: Generations Voyager Class Sandstorm

Can you believe it's been almost 30 years since the debut of Springer and his current mold mate Sandstorm? Well, in 2016 it will be. (3 years from now! Can you believe it?) Since then, we fans have patiently (okay, impatiently) waited for new, updated versions of these characters/toys, and Hasbro has finally heard our cries and answered.

First, of course, was Springer which you can see here.

And now, thanks to a drastic remolding and redeco, that same base figure has been turned into Sandstorm! And quite an impressive retooling, too.

We've provided a few images here to get your feet wet, but you can click on any of the pictures below to dive right into the full gallery.

So news that Sandstorm's popping up in stores now are true. Damn, and I haven't even spotted Springer yet. :BANG_HEAD:

As I've said before, now that we have another Decepticon Triplechanger coming down the pipe (granted, Doubledealer was technically not considered a traditional Triplechanger, despite having three modes), this gives me the perfect excuse for picking up Sandstorm.

Autobot032 wrote:Can you believe it's been almost 30 years since the debut of Springer and his mold mate Sandstorm?


Springer and Sandstorm have never shared a mold until now. Similar vehicle modes, but not the same mold, and they are not retooled from each other.
They call me “Tanker Chungus”!

I should've clarified. I meant their current mold is shared. I was trying to say that Springer and Sandstorm are almost 30, period.

I'll correct that.
