    too bad they never really captured his size (notes the crane in the second picture) that's more like how he should have been!

    He looked much bigger in the trailer. His design is pretty sweet though.

    Please buy Optimus Maximus if only so Hasbro will release a new Metroplex. This thing needs a toy.

    Are those ingame images? If so, it looks amazing!

    BTW was this just an updated WFC engine or is this running on a new gfx engine altogether?

    Should have been much bigger, he`s city sized and yet he looks like he`s just one or two buildings combined. Also looks a little chubby and badly proportioned.

    Also the title is wrong, it should be Metroplex Heeds the Call of the Last Prime but oh well.

    Also, if Metroplex is so powerful, then why didnt he go into battle sooner? If you have a freaking city sized Transformer than can crush your opponents why wait to use it?

    He does seem a bit small-ish...thought the perspective may be a bit skewed here.

    But I would definitely love if we could have a giant figure made from him. It's a pipe dream yes......but a 3 feet tall Metroplex. *dreamy sigh*

    Everyone's saying that he's too small but if you look at the pictures, metroplex is standing on a surface that is much lower than Optimus is standing on cos you can see his knees but you cant see his shins thus making him look smaller
    You can see in this image that metroplex is standing on a lower surface as his legs go much lower than the surface Optimus is standing on.

    Basically what I am trying to say is that if metroplex and Optimus were on the same surface , then metroplex would look a lot taller

    He's big enough to do the damage.
    While there's plenty of pulverized dust, industry, and a stable atmosphere, I wouldn't expect it to be the same as Earth's.
    Besides, he's surrounded by a planet of mega-structures which may distort scale perception.

    Edit: I'm constantly amazed by the [v3] Unreal Engine. It wasn't too long ago that you could only dream of that amount of polys on screen.

    no not supreme class - I want metroplex launched at Fortress Maximus size... then he'd be close to the scale we want... can only dream though.. those days are gone... unless he turned up in a movie I guess and then would end up looking like an alien va jay jay

    i think it looks awesome. Once again they took a G1 model and updated it so that anyone who ever knew metroplex, can look at it, and immidiatly say "hey...THATS metroplex" good job!
