Bumblebee looks shinier.

What's with TFSource's labeling these Fall of Cybertron figures? They're not.

GTR Maximus and Sailor Jupiter, fan-fiction at its best!

Most interesting is the Metroplex release date: Takara release dates are a few months off from Hasbro's on this line. So if Takara is saying September... US should have this fella in stores mid-Summer? I think someone else mentioned awhile back that the timing might coincide with SDCC'13. Hasbro, your move.

So 2 questions now come to me. The first is what was the speculated price of Hasbro MP...was it under $100? BBTS now has Takara's already posted to which I was expecting it to be much more.

My final question is if Takara chose to do a Metro Titan repaint would you pick it up? I don't know if this has been ask already. :VEHI:

So does OP, at least his blue parts. Sometimes (like with BH Shockwave) the shiny Takara finishes look better. But for these two little guys, I think it's out of place.

But Bee was shiny in the FOC game.

Hel-loooooo, race girl! :lol: Maximus has too much green, but okay.

I really hope the Hasbro version of Metroplex is significantly less, because damn...

BBTS has him listed for $20 less than TFsource, still way to much though...

Well... Metroplex is. Then again, TFsource once posted Saber as "Savior". :lol:

But besides that, all my feels are going to GT-R Maximus! I have to wait until May to preorder him, and September to get him. But even then, he will fill out the first half of my collection-based project. :) That, and covers my GT-R collection. But with Maximus, I feel compelled to play the overworld theme to Legend of Zelda. :-B

"Her"? :???:

Oh, you mean the Race Queen figure. Didn't see the "with the" in your original post. :oops:

The Bot is Maximus. The girl is his Race Queen.

It's cool. ;) And thanks. I'm getting this guy. Never owned an Alternity before, and the Race Queen looks rather interesting.

It's not Alternity.

It's Transformers: GT.

Just for the record: It's not Alternity. It is a collaboration with Super GT Racing, as a way to celebrate Super GT's 20th anniversary. And as we speak, GT-R Maximus is the 4th and final GT-R GT300 model. And we might see other models be added in a hopes of showing that it is more than a "simple" retooling. Namely because they have 12 more teams and around 2-3 more car models. And trust me, Alternity was just a way to wrap up Takara's original work. This is way cooler. 8)

In all cases, the whole theme is a lot more interesting than me explaining continuities (which is a subject I have been studying for the last 16 years, thanks to RPGs). Because they have fast cars, racing queens, and four GT-Rs that are Prime, Saber, Megatron, and Maximus. All I have are cookies. :lol:

Not going to lie, that race queen figure just made me pre-order this :x . Going to be my very first Alternity / GTR mold.
