    Just wanted to share the Shattered glass Metroplex, (Metrocore? ) the color scheme was taken from Trypticon. Im Still working on a gun for him. This guy was made from G1 metroplex and the cybertron series version plus I added leds to the head and attached energon omega supreme forearms it sure was a hole in my pocket just to do this one haha. Has tons of articulation including bellow the knees swivel inwards which helps on getting great poses and stances. the transformation was comprimised a little bit due to the mods I lost the helipad :(  . I was thinking on putting this piece and the Unicron Incarnation on a private auction meaning not on ebay lol, but Im not sure yet. anyway enjoy thank you for looking.

    Lol I don't really know I saw that name among the names i requested for my metroplex combiner i did i while ago , one of the users here created that name and I always liked it so I was gonna use it for this one but still havent decided. It's kinda omega doom instead of omega supreme so I thought maybe metro core instead of metroplex. But like I said it was just a thought I had while under the influence of heavy painkillers lol .

    Awesome work and with SG naming convention you don't so much really need to change the name.

    I like the idea of a Black Metroplex I was always wishing I had a (Black) dark Metro-Titan toy to match the other Cybertron/Galaxy Force toys that had a black version.

    Personally, in my own faniverse, SG doesn't exist.
    However, I have no problem with an evil MetroTitan.

    I do like this paint scheme, though I think because of the arms you neutered some of the transformation. What was your reason for using omega's forearms? Wouldn't Primus have been a better choice perhaps and a bit less spendy?

    Overall though, great job, I really like his proportions.

    Hey thank you :) . , yeah true the alt mode suffers a little bit because of the arms but I didn't use primus arms because everybody has done that and I wanted something new plus originally he was t meant to be transformable the client just wanted the robot mode only.

    This looks awesome. I love the colors and the articulation. I may have been expensive to make, as you said, but it really pays off!
