They probably wont until they know how Metroplex sells. They can from a design standpoint, but can they from a retail point? Will the stores want it?

If Metroplex is an instant high seller/sell out even then Trippy will make sense at some point down the road......if Metro sits on shelves holding other shelves up and going on deep discount......then no. Simple really.
This is how you do entitlement:Make MP Jazz, now!!!

Honestly, I foresee Metroplex being a shelf warmer. He's huge, expensive, and is essentially a hollow box, isn't he? I see him going the way of that Prime Optimus Maximus armor thing.

Please learn proper thread titleing etiquette. A better title for this thread would be "I'd like to see a Titan Class TRYPTICON" or "Wouldn't it rock is there was a Titan Class Trypticon". That sort of thing...

I don't think Metroplex is expensive.

Lots of people pay that much for two 3rd party figures that are deluxed sized (or 3 Legends sized figures, see Scouting Force); lots of people paid that $70-$90 for Armada Unicron when it first came out, and it's tiny compared to Metroplex; in Canada, 20th Anniversary Optimus was $100 and I had a hard time finding it. I've still yet to see the latest MP Optimus at TRU, and he's priced at $100.

As for Optimus Maximus, he's shelfwarming at $20 at my local Winners. I'd take the 1 "hollow box" of Metroplex over 6 "honeycomb box" Maximus anyday.

And yes, I'd buy a Titan Class Trypticon if he's a good representation of G1 Trypticon...I didn't buy that Legends repaint of CYB-Scourge.
Please help me ID these non-TF parts thread: #99 of approx 1000 listed (#86, #87, #89, #90, #92, #95, #97, #98 + #99 added)

You can't compare the 2, Optimus Maximus was a $30-40 POS made of rubbery plastic with zero transformation/articulation.
For sale/trade: Transformers, Roadbots, Super Sentai, Marvel Shape Shifters, etc. here.
