    Received my Encore Metroplex today and took a bunch of pics. He seems to be just how I remember. I know in some of the video reviews it has been mentioned the ramp having a problem staying up, but on mine it just snaps into place and doesn't seem to have that problem.

    I'll be getting this - but not until tax return time, unfortunately.

    I never had the original, but I just got my encore, which was a nice thing to get out of the hospital and come home to, and I love him! And I havent had any problems with my ramps, they seem to fit snuggly enough on mine. The only thing that sucked was putting on all those stickers, since I'm a perfectionist it took me like 1/2 hr to get them all perfect.

    I might get one at some point. I didn't pre-order one like I did with Encore Sky Lynx and Omega Supreme.

    My childhood dream has been realized. I finally have a G1 Metroplex, sitting on my shelf, freshly stickered up, ready for battle. :)  What an awesome toy.

    NICE! Man after looking at that I have got to dig through my mother's "garage of crap". Supposedly both my Metroplex and Trypticon are still in there somewhere.

    got mine, awesome. ive never felt a g1 mint metroplex but overall he feels solid as i expect he should, only issue is the tower type piece that sits as a 'backpack' on him is very loose and spins on the peg, easily remedied, not sure if thats common to all or even the original. A great looking piece thats fun to TF.

    I finally got to play with this bad boy today. I've had him sitting around for a little over a month now and all I can say is WOW!!!! :) 

    All the modes are really cool and even though the transformation is simple, it is satisfying. I love all the little pieces and the freedom you have in attaching them in different configurations. I even managed to get all of the pieces on him (or stored in him) in robot mode. You can store Scamper in his chest, Slammer in his leg, and attach Six-Gun's torso to the building on his back. Very menacing indeed. All the joints are nice and tight, everything fits together like it should and the stickers are nicely cut. This is exactly how a reissue should be. It has been a long time since I opened a figure straight out of the package and haven't had to fix, or modify a single part in any way. I highly recommend this guy, worth every penny. A+

    I really wanna find a Encore Metroplex for $50 with shipping. Kinda been on the fence with him and Omega since I decided to not focus on reissues so much.

    However I think both Metroplex and Omega make great transforming playsets for Legends figures.

    The best I've seen him for is $60 + shipping at TFSource. He is worth it. I paid $85 for mine back in September. The legends figures are great with him. He is a brick but has a lot of play value.

    *sigh* I've been trying to ignore this reissue but the $60 deal at TFSource coupled with the fact that TFSource just moved within throwing distance from me...well, bullet=bitten.

    I got mine from TF Source on Wednesday, just haven't had the time to open him up, though I do have the plastic wheels/sticker ed legs G1 version. It's nice that this is the rubber/chromed version.

    Got mine from TF Source today. It's so nice to have them close to home now. I wont be able to open mine until tonight so I get to stare at the box all day and torture myself. I wasn't paying attention enough before to realize that this version has chrome and rubber tires. That's awesome!

    Finally opened up mine, and it seems I got the short stick when it came to QC, the chrome on the legs was scratched up a bit, the missile launchers don't seem to want to fire, and there is a bit of plastic missing from the "bump" above the ramp. I did put the stickers on some (the foil sheet) were easily torn and they seemed faded. I would recommend reprolabels before the encore ones. Also some of the clips are too strong while others not strong enough. My original feels a lot more studier too.
