    Close, he's actually a bucket-wheel excavator.

    I've actually got a G1 Metroplex lined up as well, using most of it's given alt-mode to try and make something of a city out of it.

    I'm sure you've got a much better work ethic than I do though, so you'll probably get much more done before I even truly get to starting. It'll be good to see what you come out with though. Looking forward.

    WHOA, bucket-wheel excavators DO exist! :jawdropper: 

    The right one would be good for a Movieverse Metroplex! :thumb

    Yes, BWE's do exist. Type Bagger 288 into Google and watch your jaw hit the floor.
    Can't wait for the big reveal.

    Hey thanks guys. I started with a G1 Metroplex vibe, but it just didn't look right, so I decided to go with a more realistic BWE color scheme midway through.

    Looks great so far. Your paint work is really making the details on this mold stand out nicely. Looking forward to seeing the completed product.

    HOOOOOOOOOOOOLY CRAAAAAAAAAAAAP! :jawdropper: 

    This is the best Metroplex I have ever seen with my own 2 eyes. :drool: 

    Comes very close to the real thing and kicks-ass with the replacement of his right arm with his wheel-bucket weapon. No need for it to be hand-held now (a crap-shoot feature in my opinion). All Decepticon gestalts, beware! :lol 

    You have gots to make a tutorial on how to do this one for those who are interested in making one for themselves!

    It does look like Metroplex IMO. The colors are spot on and you did a very cool job. All he needs is Trypticon to fight with.

    Gorgeous paintwork as always. The huge arm would have given a deformed look to a lesser figure, but for him it really works well.

    I'm so excited about your "next up", as I've been wondering about your avatar!

    Looks damn good. Any plans for a Six-gun, scamper or slammer to compliment?

    Pretty sweet. I like that idea you went with the arm, makes me think a lot of Ash and his chainsaw hand.

    I'm not going to lie though, I'm really looking forward to vTHISv guy.
