    Update on page 2 new pictures of the progress and alt mode.

    Just wanted to show my second custom metroplex wip, but first I want to give credit to user "Pimp my toy" for the cybertron starscream shoulder idea, thank you for the inspiration. Ok so after doing the shattered glass metroplex I wanted to recreate a more beefy bulkier metroplex but with lots of articulation and that can transform. Head is on a ball joint, shoulders move up and down & in and out, elbow articulation & rotation , waist & torso articulation, hips ,knee, leg articulation & rotation, and finally feet articulation. so here is a little preview of whats gonna look like. still working on some other details on it, like cutting off the spikes on the arms etc. then the boring part of painting it, lately Im hating that part of the process aahhhh. anyway thank you for looking .

    "If it's a beatdown you're after then I'll be more than happy to oblige." - metroplex

    This looks awesome. Looks like he could pound the crap out of tiny little decepticons with little effort

    Thanks for the credit bro :D 

    It looks nicely articulated and I'm looking forward to seeing how it comes out fully painted.

    Wow. The fact you kept a lot of the bulk really impresses me. Some of the custom Metroplex figures come out lanky. This isn't the case for yours at all. Simply awesome.

    Looks good - a lot like what a beefy citybot should look like. I can see parts of Unicron for the forearms, Cybertron Starscream for the shoulders, Cybertron Metroplex for the waist, Is that G1 Metroplex for the boxy chest? and I'm not sure what the legs are.

    How does he look transformed in City mode?
