    Cyberverse Optimus Maximus should get recolored into 1986 Metroplex's color scheme as it has similar designed modes,sculpt & functions.
    A white+silver+black+maroon red colors will make this look like metroplex.

    Looking at the pics above in this thread. this toy is dead ringer/exact updated homage mode for 1986 Metroplex. all it needs to do is get repainted into 1986 metroplex's color scheme.

    cyberverse optimus maximus has a vechicle mode that looks like 1986 metroplex's rolling alt mode design. the cyberverse optimus maximus robot mode also looks similar to the 1986 metroplex robot mode. lastly the cyberverse optimus maximus can interact with the legends sized TF toys & has places for them to work mini battle stations & they can park in alt mode in those tiny slots.

    most noteable is the robot head visible in alt mode in a similar area on the cyber verse optimus maximus toy like 1986 mtroplex's Alt modes has the robot head visible in alt mode.

    hopefully we get this repainted in 1986 metrople'x colors as it looks like a decent homage design in all modes. it's decently poseable & the right big city-former size. plus fans/buyers can pretend it's a giant & the legends toys are regular sized TF toys

    I'm sure many Radicons have already planned this out. It'll happen no matter what, trust me.

    Aside from the fact he looks like scaffolding I think a better repaint would be energon metroplex.

    This is such an odd toy. No matter how many times I see the pictures, I can't seem to decide whether I think he looks interesting or awful. I think my interest in him is going to come down a lot to how many good TFP Cyberverse figures come out.

    And yeah, I agree repainting him sounds like a good idea, although I may change my mind depending on what he looks like while interacting with the Cyberverses.

    First time I heard about this toy I was very excited. A new base bot!
    But... the base mode looks like Optimus is in a chair with kids on his lap. Very sad toy. The Cyberverse line deserves more.
