    Update 10-30-09: Metroplex is complete...new pictures posted of him along with Scamper, Sixgun and Slammer...

    Update 08-03-09: The head is close to completion...edges still need to be polished along with some minor paint detailing and a final clear coat...Classics/Legends Brawn shown for scale...

    Update 08-06-09: Metroplex's head is pretty much complete...new pictures added...

    Update 10-13-09: Body construction is complete...I've posted images of the primer coat...note that his wheels have not been installed yet...they will go on once all painting is complete...the body will need some minor polishing/finishing before the final coloring is applied...I hope to have pictures of Sixgun & Slammer posted soon...

    YES sir! Head is looking really sweet. And first up to bat as well. I already love it because to me, the head really makes the robot. Looking forward to seeing the rest of him!

    only one more? What are you using for the base of this thing, it must be pretty darned big looking at that head next to the legends.

    Atleast one more...working two jobs and a little one on the way makes finding the time for bashing a little tough...I'm really going to push to try and have Metro done before the end of the year...he'll be about two foot tall...I'm using RID Brave Maximus parts as a base...

    It looks almost like G1!!! The only thing is his head looks like its floating there might be the neck is a little thin, cant tell, but he looks great otherwise :)

    Thanks for the comments guys...as far as a size comparison I used legends Jazz to do the repaint of Scamper...he can be seen standing on Metroplex in base mode...Metroplex is the same height as Brave Maximus...

    Other things of note:

    Slammer's turret/cannon can fold back...he also has a removable blaster attached at his side and a extendable claw in the front...he also attaches to Metroplex's back right shoulder...

    Sixgun also comes apart and attaches to varies places on Metroplex...his legs go to Metroplex's upper arms (the legs shoot black missiles), his arms connect to Metroplex's legs and his torso connects near the helicopter pad in base mode...
