That's an awfully tiny head though.
Another unoriginal, boring, blocky-for-the-sake-of-being-blocky FOC design. What a surprise.
fucking amazing. well, aside from the head of course
High Moon have been pretty much spot on with their character designs so far, but they really fumbled the ball with Metroplex; what in the name of Bonaparte's balls did they do to his head!?
It just seems totally bizarre when the rest of the design is so slavishly faithful to G1 Metroplex!
The original Metroplex was basically just a couple of humongous boxes stacked on top of one another. Like it or not, that boxiness is a fundamental part of his design. There's not really any way to rework it and have it still be recognizable as Metroplex.
This is a G1-inspired game, and G1 is the bastion of blockiness. For me, this is a welcome palette cleanser after five years of the LAM franchise, where everything was spindly, chicken-legged, over-complicated and completely devoid of character. It was an interesting novelty for a while, but I'm utterly, utterly tired of that aesthetic. I applaud High Moon for bringing back the chunk. Jolly good show!
I have a feeling that he isn't fully transformed. I somehow doubt that would be the final, in-game appearance for Metroplex.
I'm liking this. I'm liking this a lot.
I think he looks wicked.
I dig it. I would buy a toy of that. And complain it was too small.
He looks powerful, love the design.
Love it. I love all of HMS designs. Such a great time to be a G1 fan. Is this from a Gameinformer?
I wanna say it's from the new one? But I'm not sure. I do feel kinda bad that High Moon's big E3 character reveal got sniped by a tiny image in a magazine, though.
Another typical thread member complaining about something otherwise awesome. What a surprise.
Opinions may be bad, but I do not feel bad.
I just put them on ignore Prowl. They never bring anything to the table. If this is the new GI I hope I get it in the mail soon.
Looks like a gameinformer from after E3.
Can't effing wait for it to dig for info on upcoming games I'll want.
its like the cybertron metroplex mold grew a city from the wizard of oz atop his arms.
That's how he looked in the footage I saw, IIRC. Not the best angle on him really - you need to see him in motion to get the real impression of the guy. Looks amazing.
The head is so tiny and it looks a little like he has one eye like Shockwave. It's hard to tell.
I absolutely love it though.
Someone here should buy me an X-Box.
