    This is my first custom figure. I had an extra Metroplex so I thought I would try to paint him up as Metrotitan. I think he comes off looking too Autobot-ish though. And I still want to do some black lines through the yellow on the shoulders as well as add some Decepticon repro stickers. All in all I'm pretty happy with him.

    It was also mentioned that Metrotitan could be a Zombie type version of Metroplex. I think this version works well under that idea. I'm thinking something along the lines of: Metroplex fought hard and strong but was ultimately defeated by the Decepticons who took over his systems and control him manually (or something like that).

    If the image doesn't show up well enough on here, I posted him on my blog too. Heres the link for the blog: Metrotitan

    And I'm considering taking him back apart and painting the center portion of his chest black instead of white. I'll post another pic after that is done.

    I'll agree with your statement here...You're idea is pretty awesome and your paint apps are very good...love the figure...but it does look too Autobot-ish...maybe it's the red/blue/yellow colors...kind of hints Optimus Prime...

    Maybe add some black/purple possibly...but again the figure does look really nice...good job so far...

    Awesome!!! Great idea. And I love the dirt you've put on there... it really gives him a sense of scale.

    I think painting the central chest black, like you mentioned, is a good idea... it would help make the character look more sinister. Also, have you thought about putting diagonal black stripes on the yellow patches on his shoulders? That seems like a signature Metrotitan detail, and it would also make him look more evil, I think. Sort of like "caution: keep away" signs or hornet's stripes. :) 

    Anyway, super cool!

    I think it looks perfect, actually. I always though Metrotitan's colors were rather Autobot-ish in the first place, so this is a pretty faithful interpretation.

    Weathering does wonders for that mold. I was never interested in Metroplex, but now I kinda want to see what he looks like weathered. Espeically that big wheel he caries.

    wonder

    Looks very nice, I always wondered why they used these colors after Metroplex for metrotitan for the "eveil" version, the autobot version has more red and black then the "decepticon" version.

    Blue, white, and red were always the definitive autobot colors.
