    i'm thinking of getting one since there on sale on hbts i just can't decide on wich one they both have there downs and ups. metroplex with the odd alt.mode and primus's reliance with a easily losable omega lock key.metroplex is huge but primus has all the bells and whistles still it's a hard decision for me:confused:

    Primus for sure. He is truely fantastic.

    The omega lock is big, I can't see someone loosing it anymore than you would lose a scout.

    Definitely Primus. Amazing toy. I think Hasbro Toy Shop has them for like ~$25 or so. They also have the Unicron head one, but it's more.

    metroplex is more fun, primus is more coolness. if you are scared to lose the omega lock I guess you play with your tfs... so go for metroplex, nothing to be lost.

    Buttsexoplex ftw.

    Unless you have Unicron, then Primus all the way.

    I think Primus is the better toy. Metroplex is ok, but the toy kinda lacks personality. The transform isn't particularly intricate or innovative... He's big, but not much else...

    Heard Primus was kinda...meh, but I personally haven't messed with/don't own either, but I'd say Metroplex.

    Reasons you should get Primus:

    1. Primus s a one-of-a-kind figure, there will be more, beter Metroplexes

    2. Transformation is entertaining (almost like automorph, but with a key)

    3. He is a Great display figure (I have mine exchanging blows with Unicron)

    Primus for sure.

    Though I'll admit my Omega Lock is MIA since we moved.

    well i've decided on metroplex cause i know if i get primus i'll loose the omega lock in 3weeks. at least with metroplex i can still transform him if i loose the cyberplanet key i just can't convert the tool to a axe.

    Primus, especially if you have Unicron; Metroplex is cool, but the "taking it from behind" alt-mode isn't as awesome as transforming into Cybertron:D
