So Metroplex is bigger than Metrotitan? I wonder what the latest retcon will be on Fortmax vs Metroplex then?

Strange its as if the scale used is for the toys but metroplex has been exaggerated a bit more, Metrotitan looks about the same size as Omega Supereme and Superion and we know that wouldn't be the case.

Bring on the Metrotitan recolour of the new Metroplex

Metroplex is way too big in those drawings. Omega Supreme shouldn't be that small compared to Metroplex, nor should Superion. Smaller, fine. Maybe to his waist, upper torso? I dunno. But Omega Supreme shouldn't be small enough to fit inside one of the weapon bays on Metroplex, that's for sure. And Metrotitan should be the same size!

That new story is called "Metro War", written by Yuki Ohshima, and set in the Japanese G1 cartoon continuity, being set after both Operation Combination and United EX, but before G-2.

As for why Metroplex is so much bigger than Metrotitan (beyond simple toy scale), remember how G1 Metroplex and G1 Trypticon were both much bigger than the G1 combiners in the cartoon? Well, when Trypticon became one of the Nine Great Demon Generals, he was then the same size as the other combiners, meaning that he must have been smaller by then. And Metrotitan was about the same size as the Generals (maybe a little bigger), so he'd be that size too. If G1 Metroplex kept his original size, he'd thusly be that much bigger than Metrotitan.

As for Omega Supreme, he was the same size as the G1 combiners in the cartoon, so he'd be their size here, and looks appropriately so with Superion not too far away from him in that image.

But, if Metroplex still looks to be way too big in that pic, there's a very simple explanation. Since this is the cartoon continuity, we know what Metroplex looked like in the cartoon and it certainly wasn't that design. Therefore, he's gotta be in a new body here, one that likely upgraded his size even further.

The simplest explanation for Metrotitan's size is that he was from Zone-meaning he was a Micromaster base: i.e unlike Metroplex, who's toy was not an accurate portrayal of his size in the fiction (compared to other characters' toys), Metrotitan was the size/scale of his toy in fiction.

Much like how Grand Maximus in Masterforce is toy size (with God Ginrai riding on him), Unlike fortress Maximus who was portrayed at TF city scale in Headmasters (with full sized characters like chromedome coming out of tiny doors in his foot), not his toy size.

And yes, I agree with Sabre. Omega was the same size as Devastator in the G1 toon. Combiners are big, but Metroplex is big enough to fit half to 3/4 of a combiner in his hallways (or near enough) A combiner would be nowhere near the size of Metroplex's leg even, much less higher, I'd say. Metroplex is an entire city for Full size TF's. Although that said combiners and Omega mass shifted to suit purpose thanks to wonky planning by writers and animators of season's 1-3. Look at Astrotrain for crying out load. In bot mode he is as tall as Megatron yet in shuttle mode he can carry 20 of him :HEADHURTS: so who knows.

I stand by my Metrotitan explanation though ;)
