    I saw this on Extreme Machines a while back and instantly thought of Cybertron Metroplex. this looks about right to me.
    just think of what this does to your view of the really big bots...

    Yeah... the mode also goes further back TF-wise, and in the complete opposite direction in terms of size. Armada Buzzsaw...

    Haha, that's ridiculously huge. In that scale, Metroplex would definitely be more of a threat to mankind than he would be an ally, good intentions or not.

    couldn't the same be said for Fort Max or any city bots?
    but just think...if that was Metroplex, a city bot would be hopping counties instead of walking.

    it is a moot point, i guess. look at primus. wouldn't he foul things up if he ever approached our vicinity? i mean, he is supposed to be a planet (not just a moon) and would have a graviational pull on us that would be just as harmful.

    to me, the picture was just me trying to get an idea for how big these big bad bots could get.

    I think the pic shows how accurate metroplex's altmode actually is, i mean, looking at the picture its basically a box with treads with some crane ax thing strapped to its back...Exactly like Cybertron Metroplex!!!! Hoever i would love a repaint in more industrial colors like this though. All dirty in gray and earth tones

    Heh. Yeah, when you look at what it is it's pretty accurate... still, his transformation sucks... I mean, he basically bends over to take it and hides his head in shame. :lolol

    THAT should have been Cyb. Metroplex. But yeah, I got the figure.... he's got an awesome robot mode, but a pretty lame alt mode. Not terrible, just lame.

    so are you guys saying that of all the TF's Cybertron Metroplex is like a Kama Sutra bot with a weird kinky alt mode position?

    at least he's willing to take one for the team, LOL.
    sorry, couldn't resist.

    Strip mining. That = remove as much material as possible in as short a time as possible, then sort said material for useful ore.

    So is it a sawblade or scoops?

    And what exactly is the thing called??

    I'd hate to be stuck behind that thing in traffic.

    Well, they don't call it the "Giant Planet" for nothin!

    I think if they repainted Metroplex they need to loose the scoops/axe & add missile launchers or radar dishes or something to make him look like a space station. I'm thinkin G1 Micromaster base or something like Grandus.
