    Guys, I need help in identifying this figure. Thanks in advance. So far, all I can tell is that he is an Autobot.

    Looking at the pics my first guess would be Metroplex but the head seems wrong.

    Other then that I have no clue.

    I'm thinking that this might not be an official TF decoy.I did a little research and came up with a list of Decoys made and Metroplex isint amoung the names.

    02) Snarl

    04) Sludge
    05) Slag
    06) Ratchet
    07) Ironhide
    08) Smokescreen
    09) Grapple
    10) Trailbreaker
    11) Sunstreaker
    12) Skids
    13) Jazz
    14) Inferno
    15) Tracks
    16) Red Alert
    17) Hound
    18) Sideswipe
    19) Prowl
    20) Mirage
    21) Hoist
    22) Wheeljack
    23) Bluestreak
    24) Brawn
    25) Windcharger
    26) Bumblebee
    27) Huffer
    28) Cliffjumper
    29) Blaster
    30) Perceptor
    31) Optimus Prime
    32) Megatron
    33) Skywarp
    34) Thundercracker
    35) Starscream
    36) Soundwave
    37) Blitzwing

    Noticing the japanese maker marks on the back, is it possible that its a japanese exclusive character, and either not part of the north american decoy set or from a completely different series?

    I am pretty sure Metroplex was not part of the deocys...I think they were all pre movie figures. I have the Complete Japanese set in the 3 gift boxes and there is no Metroplex. Could be a KO.

    never seen it, but it would appear to be some sort of japanese exclusive, so it's most likely not from the US

    Thanks for the ideas. I also have the North American decoys list and this guy is not part of them. My other non-North American ones are Laserbeak and Ultra Magnus. Any other ideas?

    The marking on the legs says "Takara" "Metrof(p)lex" :)
