    What's it saying? The previously detachable antenna is built in now?

    The tank turret becomes a tower. In the original US release, the turret just either stayed on the tank, or just was put aside in city mode, now it looks like its an additional tower.

    HMM. I am not sure that's new. I will have to check on my metroplex when I get home tonight. Thundercracker is looking good. I will pick him up when I can since I know he will probably be readily avaliable.

    I'm not sure I am feeling Alternity Convoy. I think I am kind of over the BT/ALT style of transformer.

    I actually own an original prototype Metroplex and it has this feature, I don't know why they removed it for the final version

    They removed it because they planned a further re-release, of course ^_^'

    They are still slightly different. The tank barrel on the prototype is thinner than the final release as well. It looks like they just added the peg back, but kept the thicker barrel

    That's a great little addition... the tank turret was always an annoying loose bit in city mode (unless you just left it on Slammer), and the arm tower always seemed to be lacking compared to the height of all the other parts... not enough to make me buy another Metroplex, but a great little treat for everyone buying their first 'Plex. All I've gotta say is bring on the eHobby Metrotitan!

    Whew! I was afraid it was going to be a significant enough change to make me want one, despite owning a pristine original.

    Word. It dismays me a bit that we haven't heard about one yet.

    I wish there was a way I could just get the Scamper, my Metroplex is already in good condition and I don't want to shell out for a brand new one that has one little new feature.

    Contact the guys over at agesthreeandup.com, they used to carry a very good quality KO on there website, but have taken it down because Hasbro told them to take down kos. If its still in stock at the store, they can still sell it to you, but they just cant post it online.

    All three used to be on my preorder list but cancelled for now. I will still get red Alternity GT-R though.

    Hmm, I never noticed that but cool. The Omega Supreme Reissue was the best in my opinion though. :p
