    Hey all,

    Three questions about Cyb. Metroplex:

    1. What size class is he? I've seen him reported as ultra and leader.
    2. Will he come with that cute little Optimus that the Japanese one had?
    3. Is that really his vehicle mode? It looks like someone told him to bend over for something explicit and probably not consensual.

    Thanks.

    2. I'm not sure
    3. Yeah it's pretty week, but I've seen some better looking fan-modes for him...

    1. He is a leader class.
    2. We don't know.
    3. Yes. That is his vehicle mode.


    Edit: Damnit! You beat me to it!

    Leader class. He'll be kinda squatting or something in the packaging though, standing full up he's taller than Prime and Megs.

    The LoC Prime- not confirmed either way but I doubt it.

    And yeah... lame alt mode.

    The answer to #2 is a 99.999999999999% no.

    It wasn't a free figure in Japan, and pushed the price of the toy up by what the extra figure what have cost on its own.

    So unless Hasbro feel like giving the figure away for free it's not going to happen because Metroplex is staying at standard leader class price.

    He's not bending over, he's sitting down.

    Or he's bending over backwards?...

    but yeah, thanks everybody. I didn't realize that the little OP was just the LoC version.

    I didn't think his vehicle mode was that bad, but then I think I moved a few panels here and there so the odd bit ended up in a different place to how it should be.

    I'm still waiting for someone to come up with a city or base mode for him.

    A while back somebody posted a gallery comparing Megalo convoy to G1 Metroplex and he had a nice city mode for Megalo and also changed around the Alt mode to more closely resemble the G1 alt mode. I can't find the link though...Anyone have it?

    No, he's SITTING DOWN. I have Megalo Convoy. His waist twists and he SITS DOWN.

    The alt mode's not the greatest in the world, but it's ok, but his robot mode and brute mode are EXCELLENT. Even without a good alt mode, to me he's still the most fun of the $40 leader toys, more funt than Armada Prime, E.Prime, E.Meg/Galv, and even Cyb. Meg/Galv and Prime. He's so poseable, it's really awesome.

    By the way, in alt mode, he's SITTING DOWN

    Uh who cares that he's "sitting down"? The alt mode still sucks.

    It's not supposed to be taken seriously in the first place, it was meant as a crude joke that his alt mode is awful and is comparable to an obscene action that I'd rather not describe.

    While he may have to "sit down" to transform, I don't know anyone that sits down and has thier forearms from elbow down on the ground. Regardless of transformation, the end result looks like a robot on his hands and knees.
