    Hey guys!
    I was sitting around looking at my collection awhile ago and was wishing that the G1 Metroplex that I had was not such a brick figure. We all know that it has virtually no articulation what so ever. Then I looked at my Cybertron Metroplex. He had some pretty good articulation, but didn't really look very much like the G1 version at all. So I got to thinking what would a figure look like if I blended these 2 base figures into one.

    Primarily it would need to be G1-esque, and still keep the 3 transformations. The base mode, the mobile land assault mode, and of course Metroplex robot mode! So after looking and planning, I found one of each of the Metroplex, one on Ebay the other on kijiji. Both were missing parts, but once I started blending them together, I was able to exchange some "left over" parts and mod them into the missing parts. For example the shin guards are the outter halves of the G1 shoulders.

    I also thought that I should try to make Metroplex's little buddies aswell. So I took Cybertron Clocker and repainted him into Scammper and I found an old Hotwheels tank and repainted it into Slammer. I didn't find a good sub for Sixgun. :( 

    So anyway enough rambling. Here are some pics I took!

    Absolutely amazing! Only 1 crit. Head looks a tad small on this huge guy. Would you be willing to make another on commission?

    Those shoulder spires are made from Energon Megatron's shoulder cannons.

    And this is a killer custom. Good job!

    It looks awesome. Just a thought, if you took the black rail guns on the shoulders from the G1 version and lengthened the barrels for your new version I think it would look a lot better than the small red guns you used. You may have to change the size of the posts, but it would make it look more like your G1 version.

    I've never been a fan of the city transformers (I know, heresy, right?) since they were the worst offenders at scaling (scaling in transformers? double heresy!!).

    But your version of metroplex. wow! great job!
