    Ok, so I see there's a ton of these coming up but I been working on this one since I finished MP Trypticon. This is where I'm at so far about 85 percent done with the build. I had a hard time keeping the transformation and making him articulated. But he will have all 3 modes. Here’s a few WIPS

    I love how you managed to clean up the knees on this thing! I've seen some great Metroplex updates out there, but the wonky knees always killed it for me. This is bringin it back!

    I'll be following this with interest, I really like what you did with Trypticon. I'm also liking what I'm seeing on Metroplex. As Autocon has mentioned, in a few others the knees haven't quite worked IMHO and how you've handled them here keeps the G1 Metroplex asthetic while retaining the articulation.

    Honestly I been working on it from months before I seen FOC Metro. I may of went a different way if I did see him. He's awesome in the game and some of the customs I seen are great!
    I just wanted to do him after I finished Trypricon.

    This is sweeeeet love the detail and he looks just perfect. Good luck with the white paint cos dam that will be hard. This is the best if seen. I do feel a little left out that i have not done one this month and after this one i will leave it for a long long time. LOVE IT and look forward to seeing it painted.

    So awesome. Love the way you cleaned the knees up. I really love how you added to more weapons to his bot mode, too. Very cool.
