    No doubt this is old news, but I had no idea Cybertron Metroplex was based on an actual machine.... the bucket-wheel excavator. Described elsewhere as simply the largest earth-moving machines in the world, I guess it's appropriate....

    So with that mystery solved, what the heck is Menasor supposed to be?

    A dead horse?


    Oh wait, you said Menasor. Yeah, I think they made that one up.

    It was very easy to miss; lots of people glazed over the pictorial posts for the sake of typing about how his altmode looks like buttlovin'.

    Here's the real Metroplex. He's just off the beltway.

    You kinda need to move the trapezoid over the 'Corporate DR' words to see it though.

    Hey, did anyone notice how Cybertron Metroplex's alt-mode makes him look like he's the receiving end of buttsecks? This may be old news. What kind of alt-mode is he supposed to have anyway?

    Figuring this out is a transfan's equivalent of finding Jesus. WE SHOULD ALL BE HAPPY FOR MBLASE.

    Menasor always reminded me of the Cybertronian Cyberformer dozers from the G2 comics.

    giant planets bots are so ginormous that it prohibits their transformation to buttsecks configurations.

    apparently size comes at a price and the price is buttsecks mode.

    So you don`t know such things like the bucket-wheel excavator in America? In Germany it`s called "Braunkohlebagger", and it`s everytime at the news if they move on over an Highway or such things. It`s really really huge! :D

    Yeah, we know about them in America and have had many threads regarding bucket-wheel excavators here on TFW over the years but that still doesn't stop someone from posting a "ZOMG BIGGEST MACHINE EVAR/ REAL LIFE CYB METROPLEX" thread once every few months.
