    That's the Metrotitan repaint of the KO Metroplex that came out a few months before the Encore was announced... it is not at all true to the original Metrotitan tho... Metrotitan had a micromaster-compatible ramp for his leg docking station, along with Metrobomb, a repaint of the exclusive (and elusive) micromaster Rabbicrater... the red parts are also fluorescent pink on the KO. To top it off, the description is wrong... Metrotitan is NOT Metroplex, and is the sole villain released in Zone, which was the 1990 line.

    Hopefully we will see a Metrotitan E-Hobby release of the new Encore Metroplex sometime soon...

    I thought it was a KO but it's not on the seperate "unlicensed" page. I was like...wtf is this?

    And yes, also distressing is it says he's the only Decepticon released for the VICTORY toy line. I mean, Destron and Decepticon means the same thing of course and there were a hell of a lot of Destron toys released for Victory. Not to mention Metrotitan did not appear on Victory.

    Sorry if I came off as know-it-allish... I'm a big fan of the JP G1 series, so I'm a bit of a knowledge whore about them.

    Well, toyhell is pretty much known to sell mostly KOs, so you can pretty much assume...
