    The "city" in wich the Elite guards have their meeting is clearly metroplex in his city robot form in the transwarped episode

    Have a look at 50 minutes 10 seconds
    Suddenly, I feel like kitbashing my 86 version into animated style

    Maybe the Autobots fight off the possessed Omega with Metroplex? It's a slim but awesome possibility. What's coller than giant robots fighting? Giant robots that are giant to already giant robots fighting eachother :D

    It's more of an homage then anything I think. Plus if the Autobots have Metroplex, why would they need to build OS in the first place?

    In case the Decepticons stole him? Like now? Or he could just be a backup if it really IS him.

    Probably just an homage, like the Wreck-Gar cycle in Garbage in- Garbage out. Not to be the buzzkill, but everyone needs to chill out with the thinking that every Transformers homage IS a Transformer :c That'd be like saying the Metroplex Mall in the Movie games is also THE Metroplex :|

    I doubt it. If you look closely during the wide shots of the room where OS is getting built, I'm pretty sure there are at least two other OS bodies in there. Also, Megs and later Screamer were only able to hijack OS because SS had an allspark fragment embedded in his head, something not possible back in the great war since the AllSpark was still in one peice and possibly sent through a space bridge at that point.

    This. I personaly think the show has enough characters as it is, and pulling out Metroplex in the same vein OS was like a deus ex machina to kick Con butt and save the Autobot's butts would not work twice.

    Also, I KNEW that mall sounded familiar when I saw it's name!

    Anyhow, it got me pleased allright... i think I can see it'S crotch too!

    By the way, did anyother than me, thought that this episode, with sari blowing up thing reminded anybody of AKIRA?

    well Omega Supreme was the first. Henced the top secret project called Omega.

    Also in order to keep the large bot in line they used a normal Transformer to link with them to teach them. Metroplex in the G1 incarnation had that with the differant bots he came with. So maybe Metroplex is the continuation of the Omega Project and is the pinnacle of their efforts.

    I can totally see Metroplex's helmet near the top. Metroplex is probly keeping secret for now. That why they made omega supreme.

    Well obviously you can see the "helmet". It's part of the design. Why wouldn't it be there?

    Seriously, it's incredibly unlikely this is anything more than a neat, little homage.
