    FOC Metroplex is nearly all scratch build project. Built from images from the Fall of Cybertron video game/ art work and game trailer to give best accuracy as possible. He stands at ( 18” to top highest tower ) way over looking any other transformers figures. He has being given his video game color scheme and made some weather effects.

    Key feature for FOC METROPLEX.

    He stand at :
    Articulated hands
    Completely custom painted
    Articulation to his waist/ arms/ knees and feet
    Ball joint head/ custom head


    Thank you for stopping by.

    Does it transform?
    I like the overall look of the piece, but I can't get past the almost 'papercraft' appearance of the legs. There are panel lines apparently drawn on rather than actually there, and the toes/shins/calves look like they're not completed.
    If this sounds overly critical, I apologize, but as a completed and 'ready to sell' piece it feels unfinished.

    ^ My thoughts exactly.

    I love the overall size & bulk, but some of the negatives are glaring and detract from the overall piece, IMO.

    He looks great from the waist up bro, I just think he needs some more time spent to really make the legs look awesome. And this is just me, but more glow lines! :)

    The upper body and waist is great, the lower legs in particular look... I dont know rushed maybe?
    The paint really suits and the head looks good even on such a big figure, very proportionate overall which was something I struggled with on my Grimlock I did on a big scale

    Yeah the lower legs do look a bit unfinished as a lot of panels don't line up and looks a little rough. Overall this is still an incredible piece!

    Sorry to say... but I agree. Normally I absolutely love your customs... but the above points bug me quite a bit.

    those knick knacks from hero factory parts can add mold details to the leg and chest.

    I agree that it is too obvious on the legs where parts were glued on and some extra red lights wouldn't hurt, but those are small issues considering how complex and awesome this whole build is. Looks like tons of hard work.
    Seems with something like this though, a makeshift cybertronian city mode wouldn't have been too difficult to work in. It wouldn't even have to look great- just him doing the splits with his arms up, a few panels that flip out, and a couple of parts that get moved around to cover obvious bot parts.
    Its extremely close to the game model look though so still great as an action master type figure.

    I also agree on the above mentioned points of being unfinished in places, but nonetheless, still love what you've done so far here. I gotta get me something like this and pretty soon! Nice job X!

    Again, my friend, astonishing job. I'm sure it'll reach the 4 digits on eBay. If only Hasbro did figures as half as amazing as this one...
