    A collaboration with thielmj. Mack did an awesome job building metroplex, and asked me to paint him. Metroplex is heavily armed and transforms into a city/battle station. His shoulder cannon also becomes two single turret guns, used in battle station mode.

    Articulation:

    -360 degrees at shoulders
    -waist rotates
    -elbow articulation
    -forearms rotate
    -hands articulated
    -hips and knees
    -lower legs rotate at knee

    I really like how the normally thin area of his middle is bulked up. Looks really cool!

    Great work! But the eyes seem just a little too small.

    Frickin' SICK. Love how this came out. Aside from what appears to be Primus hands, what else was used to buff up the G1 Metro?

    Great! I really like the way you kept a strong sense of proportion all through the figure, something that often gets lost on G1 Metroplex upgrade projects. The new integration of the weapons is really nice too.

    I'm not so keen on the fact that his shoulder articulation hasn't improved along with his other joints, but that's really one complaint in a sea of appreciation. :)

    City mode definitely took a hit, but I'll be damned if this isn't the best G1 Metroplex robot mode I've seen upgraded. Most of the others have goofy proportions.

    thanks guys

    thanks. hmmm, that's hasbro's doing lol

    thielmj did a great job. primus legs were used as well, and were incorporated with the G1 thighs and crotch very nicely. as aprim mentioned, some G1 overlord was used as well. Thanks for the comment

    thanks guys, we're glad you like him

    thanks man. it's always good to hear your thoughts. I definately agree with the proportions. thielmj did an awesome job of making a beefy/G1 metroplex, with great proportions.

    Thanks anty, and good eye! ;) 

    thanks for the comments guys, we appreciate it
