    Twitter user TF YUKI has tweeted some images of Takara-Tomy Generations Metroplex and Scamper, as well as Springer and Blitzwing.

    Metroplex features two of the red guns. It's unclear though as to whether Metroplex has paint applications or stickers. Chrome piece on Scamper's back seems to be from the Transformers Go! line.

    Has takara posted official images of their metroplex yet? If not it's odd because it's due to be released next month.

    Yeah, this has been known for awhile now, at least since Tokyo Toy Show.

    Springer looks much more vibrant green than the stock photos have indicated. (Which were more olive green) That's good because it does look better, but bad because now he's not different enough for me to want him very much. :lol

    I've been semi-following the available Metroplexes. I was waiting for some more definitive TakaraTomy pics hoping that version would have more paint apps instead of stickers. Still not sure how that particular question sways, but I was always impressed by the tarmac covered flight deck of the Hasbro version which it seems the TakaraTomy version doesn't have. The SDCC versions have the black flight decks, right?

    Springer's box says "triple changer! robot to jet to tank!"

    Good job, Takara Tomy.

    These images block all the parts I want to see. Also, does anyone know if the ACG-Con Metroplex is just the SDCC Metroplex or this Metroplex with the same chrome and added parts as the SDCC Metroplex. I like the white flight deck as the original G1 figure was white.

    I think that's about the best looking Springer toy yet.

    i do like the white deck.

    however, i still like my original metroplex more.

    it functions better as a transformer.

    I have the Hasbroplex coming, and I'm more than happy with it, as well as the Blitzwing & Springer. I think the Hasbro versions look much better, and since I paid way less....I'm even happier about them.

    I wish we'd get better picture of the Takara Metroplex. That's the one I'm getting, because I'm sure it'll be better then the Hasbro and will cost the same to me due to the fact that the Hasbro looks like it'll be $180 over here.

    Yeah the chrome face didn't persuade me. I got my Blitzing about a month ago from them, incredibly quick shipping. I ordered my Metroplex on Friday and it was suppose to be here today, but it wont arrive until tomorrow now. Just wish they had MP Soundwave on their site.

    I doubt the Takara one has stickers. He definitely has a lot more painted details based on the photos. There's a lot of little things here and there on him.

    You mean Metroplex from ACG-Con in Hong Kong? It is identical to SDCC Metroplex except those decoys are in gold and silver.
