Generations Metroplex New Images

Hisashi Yuki has kicked off the new week by uploading a pair of new images to his Twitter account. These latest images show off Metroplex's chest bay door open with Scamper posing on the resulting platform - check out the articulation on Scamper, he even appears to have some movement in his head!

In a second image, we get another sense of just how big Metroplex is. In his first image of Metroplex's full robot mode, Hisashi Yuki is showing us Metroplex posed as if running - demonstrating some of the big guys articulation. By way of impressing just how massive this toy is, three Legends class Transformers toys are stood in front of Metroplex, looking positively tiny in comparison to the big guy.

Hawt!! *drools*

Man, the more pics I see the more I just need this. I've always been more of a metroplex guy than fort max.. (don't get me wrong, I love fort max) this thing is pure awesomeness though...
motorthing
Ok ok I'm already buying the thing......just hurry up and release it!
Sup3hobo
Is this the most teased official transformer before release ever? Oh and looking at the right shoulder shows the extent of the outward movement at the shoulder.
Dark Magnus
If all the cheap ass collectors fuck this up for the rest of us by playing the "I'll wait for it to go clearance" I'm going to be pissed. This is one of those rare opportunities where we ned to really speak with our wallets.
AutobotMirage
I want this so badddd!!!!!!
Bountyan
Need muh Six-Gun and Slammer
Ra88
I'm actually really digging those testshot colors. Has it's charm.

Wow, this thing really can move!
hardreturn
here's another picture for scale

hardreturn
yep, and he looks good running!
TCracker
HOLY SHIT.

Check out the articulation!

Thank god I POed. This is gonna be awesome.
Acid Storm
I guess the chance of this having a selectable JP/English voice mode are pretty slim right?
Blackout32
Now that pic is awesome. I know hes got alot of us drooling for him for sure so he will be a great pick up once we all get him.
Blairimus2563
Is Scamper holding a Targetmaster?
Furyan
Has there been pics posted of the ACG-CON HK Exclusive colorway vs Hasbros reg?
indianawalsh
I wanna see a picture of him with WST Ravage (the smallest transformer ever). That'd be interesting to see.
j.a.f.o.
Oh, so Scamper's all-red head is the final production version? Hmm...

And I have yet to see a pic of Metroplex making an actual fist with his hand. Hmm...

...hey, somebody's gotta nitpick through all the awesomeness that is this figure.

"I'll Wait until i get 150 bucks. and 99 cents."

Do we still have any clue at all what the differences are going to be between the three versions of this. I know the Takara one will probably have better paint/colors and the extra gun compared to the hasbro but what's gonna make the con version so much more special it requires an extra 10 bucks? Wish they'd just post a pic of all 3 already.
Ezilla82
Metroplex got some good movement here in running pose.
bobbyjack
I just hope this will sell well enough so they will make Trypticon.

Ye, I hope there's some differences that warrant the extra price for the Takara version.
transmasterc
He does look amazing.I just hope the stores in my area don't screw the pouch by not getting this bad boy in.Where is he up for pre order and how much?I will not wait till clearance to snag him.I want Trypicon too.
Quantum
Oh Em Gee!! I know he's Generations, but on my shelf, he will be Masterpiece Metroplex. Oh yes, he will be.
Driftx3
I have never wanted a TF so much. This might be my retirement 'bot.
Ninjahandz
Fun fact! If a 1 foot tall Metroplex weights 2 pounds...

A 2 feet tall Metro would proportionately weight 16 pounds

A 3 feet tall would weight 54 pounds and

A 4 feet tall Metro would weight 128 pounds!

And for those dreaming of a 6 foot tall Metro, I hope you can somehow handle all of his monstruos 432 pounds during transformation!

Hope someone finds this data amusing. I sure did!
Smasher
What?
He's not in scale with Classics\Generations Voyagers?

No sale.
benclark1982
Glad to see that his arms swing out and just the over all level of articulation for him. Cant wait.
ShakesDaKlown
I want to preorder.... but I want the feeling of carrying him home from retail.

Looking good, though.
neeral36
The more I see him the more likely I am going to have to get 3 of him. One to remain stock and two to repaint to match the other Metro Titans we have seen in the comics. The "Not For Sale" etched into his chest says he is a prototype to me.
Knockout196
I don't want to wait for clearance, but after recently buying a Hercules,I just don't have enough money right now.
exomega255
you know, this is exactly why they won't develop more of this size class transformers? because there are people (not just you, knockout) just waiting for it to hit TJ Maxx or other retail store at discount. At that point, the sales tells Hasbro its not worth it.

Sure you may get it super cheap and get an amazing deal? but we won't get our trypicticon most likely =/
Timesynch
Noyce. Gonna pick up the Hasbro version and just hope Dr. Wu or someone can release the missing second rifle.
Megatron31
that is fantastic! cant wait to see the demo of lights and sounds or just a simple review would be awesome granted thats a ways out. but still awesome!
Starfire22
This thing is even more awesome every time I see more pictures.
Ktulu
Looking good. I also hope he ends up selling successfully, but either way it's still cool that they bothered making this at all.
DarekSilver
The only thing this is missing for me is Ankle-tilts....but I'm still buying the hell out of this guy.
scypris115
That thing is beautiful, release it already!! Hasbro is gonna get a good chunk of money from him alone

It's not the cheapskates you have to worry about, it's the scum-of-the-Earth scalpers. Something this big won't be released in mass quantities to begin with, so it'll be easy for them to wipe out every store. Expect eBay to be the only place to get one at 40% markup for the first 9 months.
Grimlock_13
Definitely looks fantastic. One of my most anticipated purchases this year for sure.
Dormamu
I'm surprised that TF Source and BBTS don't have preorders for him available yet. Wonder what the delay is?

Pre-ordering is our friend. I honestly cannot remember the last time I waited for a figure I wanted to reach retail. It's probably more to do with being in UK, where no specific wave is guranteed anyway.

Kapow have had him up for a while:
Transformers Generations Titan Class Metroplex - Kapow Toys
ChErikS
I actually heard from a friend that they are only making 30k units of him for the US market, so that is a pretty tight supply for the entire country. When you think about it there alone are 600 Toys R Us's in the US, so if they bought the entire supply for their stores they would only get 50 units to each location.

Really would recommend no one waiting on this one, Hasbro has learned a lot in the high retail items thanks to all of the bigger Star Wars stuff they have done in the last few years, they will make sure there is not a bunch of this still out there to be clearanced out.
Zambot
So glad, the articulation hounds will now be kept at bay.

At least till they find out that Metroplex don't have any finger joints outside of their base joints.
strangeguy32000
Daaaamn. Now I'm glad I Pulled my Cyberverse figures out of Storage when I did my Reprolabelling this weekend. Now if only Big Bad Toy Store had a Pre-Order for this Titanic Autobot.

and Too Cool, Little Scamper has Elbows and Knees.
Oilspill
That running pic is jaw-droppingly awesome!
Move over Unicron, there's a new big boy in town.
