I wish Hasbro had added a tab there or something to stabilize the top of the plate where the arm connects to the gray swing arm. Yep, once you put the arm on hes not going back in the box, unless you want some holes through it or something.
His first alternate mode is a kind of futuristic mixture between a huge wheeled transport and an aircraft carrier.
You can lower a ramp from Metroplex’ right boop onto the flight deck, enabling vehicles up to Deluxe size to traverse from his chest compartment to the deck and vice versa.
The similarities to G1 Metroplex’ city mode are very strong here, as the basic lay-out is the same. I was pleasantly surprised that we were getting a new Metroplex in time for the Transformers’ 30th anniversary. Got mine yesterday, AFTER my wife came home from work unfortunately so her eyes rolled practically out of her head at how big the box was - as expected LOL. As expected I'm let down by the corners cut in what COULD have been a great, modern city mode, but I understand consumer-approachable cost was a huge factor.
I started panel lining him last night with thinned black paint (not markers), which is an easy way to bring out a ton of detail but it's going to take a while. He’s got a built-in double-barrelled cannon on his left shoulder, a flip-open missile launcher on his left boop, two black shoulder cannons that can double as handguns, and a big red rifle that can also be mounted on his right shoulder.


And while there are some minor things that could be improved here, he’s still one great robot. It’s basically Metroplex sitting down on his butt and extending his legs before him, which flip open to form a long black flight deck.
The flight deck also features a kind of repair bay with a robot arm for making field repairs.
In pretty much all of the comics, though, Metroplex was simply the biggest Transformer period, towering over all others (the other G1 citybots being more or less normal-sized Transformers in the comics). As my mid-30s self sat on the floor of my office putting on stickers, there was some remark about how turned on she was. Still it's fun to try all sorts of configurations, and the 5mm holes ALL OVER this guy means there's all sorts of gun mounting to be had. The only thing slightly aggravating here is that some of the arm joints are so stiff you can barely move them, while the joints that connect the legs to the hip could definitely do with some tightening. He comes with quite the number of stickers, which do manage to bring out quite a bit, but overall I think I’ll apply some paint here and there to further bring out the details of this awesome sculpt.
There is also a fold-out gun in his right forearm, though that’s originally intended for his alternate mode. Both Metroplex’ head turret and the gun on his left shoulder feature room for a gunner of about Scout-size (such as Scamper, see below). One thing that does remain the same no matter how you configure the city, though: the ramp leading down from his chest is too short. He also played an important part in the Fall of Cybertron video game and the current run of G1 comics from IDW. Anyway, there are already four different versions of this toy available (this one, the Takara release, and two convention exclusives) and I expect we’ll see a Metrotitan repaint sooner or later as well.


I have had some start to peel up already, but I usually just take a tooth pick and rub some glue in the area where its not sticking anymore and it usually solves the problem.
I tested it, put Metroplex next to Fortress, Brave, and Grand Maximus, and he is indeed a tad taller than them. His eyes also light up and there is a little lever on the back of his head that moves his pupils (only visible when they light up). While the overall scale is supposed to make Metroplex work with Cyberverse-sized figures (Scouts and Legends), it also works very nice with Deluxe-class figures, I think. Not much else I can say that the pictures don’t show better, so let me just state that I love base mode Transformers and while I still think that Fortress Maximus remains the champion in terms of best base mode, Generations Metroplex does a damn fine job as a base for Cyberverse or even Deluxe-scale figures as well. If only the long waist had some way to collapse or fold out of the way, both the base and carrier would have been a lot more believable. Thats what I did for my Kabaya Assortment model kit transformers where the stickers were kinda required for things like the face, etc. As it is, looking at certain pieces of the mold I can't shake the feeling that bigger things were planned for him. So apart from telling you all to get yourself one of him, there is but one thing left for me to say, really: I want a Trypticon on this scale!
