One of the things that always bothered me as a kid was Metroplex's scale. Watching the animated series, it seemed as though Metroplex was fairly large. Almost as though he was a city that transformed into a robot. Wonder were I got that from?
Granted, I had no idea that this picture by Studio Ox existed, but it's a scene that I know others had imagined. Imagine my surprise when Fortress Maximus was released as the tallest Transformer at over 2 feet tall. That's what Metroplex should've been. Thank goodness that 27 years later, Hasbro and Takara finally rectified the situation.
As you can see, Generations Metroplex is frakking huge.
Metroplex gives you two options for eyes. Toy, and animated series based visor. I prefer the eyes.
Out of the 97 stickers that come with Metroplex, I managed to lose the sticker for the crest on his head. I had it in the tweezers, and in the process of applying it, the sticker fell into a crevice or something in the figure's body. I can't find it.
The poseablity is a very welcome addition. It's nice to have a giant that can strike a pose.
The arm cannon is a nice touch.
I'm not super crazy about the electronics. They're a thing, and I don't plan on using them again.
Hey, ever transform the original Metroplex? Congratulations, you can transform Generations Metroplex! The battle station mode is pretty nifty.
City mode is spectacular, even with the odd ramp placement.
I realized when taking these pictures that the stickers depicting Prime, et al, bring Scamper's actual size into question. Since they're depicted so small, does this make Scamper gestalt size? I'm over thinking it, I know.
Finally, a nice shot of Metroplex surrounded by Fort Max and the Encore Fort Max.
