    My mate has recently shown me an original boxed Metroplex that he purchased from someone. The box is definately original however the Metroplex is blue! I know that Metrotitan was a Japanese recolour however i'm sure he'd have been in a Japanese box not an English Metroplex box.

    So i don't know whether or not its a fake or whether its actually real?

    Pics would help.

    Does he look like this: Metrotitan - Transformers Zone - Transformers Resources

    If he does, odds are it's a KO Metrotitan, they were released in KO Metroplex boxes.

    If that's not him, is he entirely blue? 1:1 scale with Metroplex? What colour are the accessories? Does it have any stampings?

    Where did your mate get him, eBay, boards, etc?

    As I said, by the sound of it, it's a KO Metrotitan, be easy to tell from a pic.

    It's one of those high quality KO's.

    About 2 extremly large & popular KO sites I vistit (can't mention the we sites names here)
    Have metrotitan in a metroplex box. because the KO companies didn't bother to create a metrotitian box.

    here's the score:
    original KO metroplex comes in 2 different box styles to chose from. the japanese or american metroplex box.

    KO Metrotitian comes in 2 different box styles to chose from. the japanese scramble city metroplex box or the armerican 1986 metroplex box.

    you can easily tell both toys are KO's because the white on both toys are more snow white. as compared to the off-white used on the liscensed versions.

    Yep its a fake Metrotitan alright, box had me fooled too till i was pointed out this site and compared the box; Counterfeit Metroplex ID Guide | HIGHENDTFS.COM. My mate only paid £40 for it and seems happy enough too have a Metrotitan of some sort.
