    Hi Guys

    I'm new to the forum, and thought i'd post my work in progress metroplex, this is my first custom but i'd like any feedback/suggestions you may have.

    I'm thinking he is going to be a bad metroplex working for the decepticons.

    Work so far is as follows:
    Added neck joint to head
    Added adjustable hips
    Ball and socket joints on elbows
    Added torso and hip cannons
    Added Combaticons to shoulders and knees

    To Do List:
    Add shoulder cannons
    Find suitable fists (thinking megamorphs hulk)
    Repaint all in decepticon colours (thinking black, with purple and silver features)

    Thanks for looking.

    Overall, I think you're off to a great start here. I'm especially pleased to see you using his "Scramble City" features as a primary element of your build, very cool.

    The big ol' chunk of Vector Prime in his belly, however, is really throwing off his proportions. Even though some people like a tall-and-lanky look for Metro, this is really taking it a bit too far.

    My guess is that you're making use of some joints/attachment points from the VP toy, which is great, but I think you need to work on exctracting them from the VP shell so that you can bring Metro's upper torso a bit closer tho his hips.

    You're off to a great start, however!
