    I have an American Metroplex from the '80s and I'm sure most people know that while you can put missile into his big guns, they do not fire.

    Do the guns that came with Encore Metroplex fire?

    Yeah they do. Nice strong springs in the Encore toys. Megatron even fires pellets.

    No, you can't have one. You'll poke your eye out.

    Interesting.
    I'd figure with all the toy safety regulations that the original version would fire and the Encore version wouldn't.
    Glad the new one has the capability.

    Encore toys aren't subject to US toy safety laws.

    i keep putting off getting a new Metro and i don't know why.
    just glad it keeps some of its 80s charm. a toy without risks isn't a toy, imo.
