    I been working on a G1 MP Metroplex for a while now. I love these base bots.
    This was made using G1 Metro, King Starscream and a bunch of other bashed parts.

    He has all 3 modes, base, attack and robot.

    I took some liberties with Scamper, Sixgun and Slammer. I wanted to give them a more modern look.
    Sixgun is a target master.
    Scamper Connects to the back and Slammer gets stored in the back too.
    Glad this guy is done because I have some unique Pretenders on the way.
    Thanks for taking a look, hopefully you'll like him as much as I do.

    Enjoy

    Aprim, this is one of your finest works I've seen. It seems like the hardest part of getting a modernized version of Metroplex has always been two things, the legs wind up too long, or the torso too skinny. You solved that, and made him proportionate. The mobile battlestation mode is spot on, and I really like that you updated the shin weapons. The city mode is still just Metro doing his best James Brown impression, but with the added detail, it's a city, and not just a twist of pieces. Also, converting both a Human Alliance and a PCC figure to be Scamper and Slammer is seriously functional. Way to make that bar above your Pretenders even higher. :thumb

    I like it. I really do.

    But I dislike it too. I think i'm all Metroplexed out really, it is great to see a Metro that isn't all lanky looking - but I much prefer your pretender stuff you've done recently, sorry dude, its probably because i'm tired and cranky.

    :p

    Yea you were working on that Skullgrin, it was awesome.

    Man, I got a real cheap camera, cybershot 8.1 megapixel. I think its more the lighting and camera settings like the EV that make the difference. Don't spend a lot on it, make a cheaper one work.

    I love how you widened the chest and gave him a lower torso

    He looks menacing like metroplex should
