    I got ahold of a Rubber Tires Metroplex a year ago for $75. The catch was he was Missing his Missiles and his Stickers had seen better days. Well at Botcon I picked up 2 Metroplex Missiles and a set of Reprolabels for him and here's the beautiful result.

    Now he gets packed for my move.

    Looks nice. I should be getting the last piece to my Predaking, which for me has been a 3 year odyssey. All I need are the reprolables now. Great work there!

    like i said before, to some one else, but i hate to break it to you, but he had 3 missiles!

    but then again I've never found the missiles for him all too necessary i mean the guns look better empty.

    I realise that he had 3 missiles, however I simply do not care as he only has 2 launchers.

    $26 for the Reprolabels, and 10 for the Missiles, so $111 all together.

    Nice bot! :) 

    Kinda makes me want to complete mine... I need guns for the little black car (b/c the pegs are broken on mine). Also think I'm short a missile or two. Could get some reprolabels, but it's only missing one of the red accents.

    Congrats and don't forget Protectobots in city mode: Blades on the helipad, Hot Spot attached in repair bay mode and First Aid alongside him. (Preferably working on stripping Wheelie for spare parts.)

    I'm tempted to buy Metroplex again (had it, sold it). I love citybots.

    Yeah I think they look better that way, but it was bugging me not having them.
