Generations Scamper Image

Back at Toy Fair 2013 we reported that the Generations Titan Class Metroplex would be accompanied by a smaller robot, based on his partner Scamper from the original Generation 1 Metroplex. Pictures of Scamper have been a well-kept secret, but as 2005 Boards member GaussGunner has highlighted, they were out there. A video of Toy Fair 2013 by Atamaiidotcom shows the box of Metroplex, including a brief "blink and you'll miss it" of Scamper on the side. Scamper in this new version remains the high-tech futuristic black car, except now he has a bit more color to him than he did back in Generation 1. He's marketed as a "Legends" class figure, so he is potentially either a Cyberverse Legion or Commander in size.

Stay tuned to TFW for more news and eventually better images!

Looks neat.

It's 'Scamper', Gauss. Scamper.

What do you think the odds are that we'll see third-party Slammer and Six-Gun for this figure?

Nice find

Niiiice find. I'm surprised it took this long if it was in one of the NYTF videos.

It's still too blurry to really make out but it is a giant step in the right direction.

Woah nice catch. Although I'm not sure what to make of that bot mode. Vehicle mode looks pretty cool.

Good eye! I really miss the Scout Size Class. Regardless of my preference it's awesome they included Scamper with Metroplex. This looks to be such an awesome set.

Yes, but then Sixgun and Slammer will go on sale as a 2-pack?

Nice i like the look of scamper and i have little doubt if Hasbro doesn't produce slammer and six gun some enterprising 3rd party company shall.

Honestly i'd not be too surprised if they were already working up designs in case Hasbro does make them.

The Scamper is a legends figure according to the text.

While this is good news to say the least, I personally think it's better news that they have officially changed the class size back to Legends.

I hated saying "legion"...
LegoTFGuy
From the looks of it he might be commander sized, judging by the fact that he has elbows AND knees. (Then again, so did PRIME Leigon Cliffjumper.)

I think it's a lot more complex than that.

Legends was the official size catagory for the Data Discs.
It is also the offical size of the Optimus/Bumblebee small figures with Targetmaster like Companions.

So in this case the Legends to compare it too is the new Optimus and Bumblebee toys.

So until those come out it's a bit hard to nail down a size unless someone has a side by side comparisons someplace.

The new Legends are quite expensive though so I don't think they are 3" Legion scale toys.... I fully expect Legions will carry through Beast Hunters and into the 4th Movie Line and 'Legends' are not the same thing. The closest match is probably Cyberverse Commander size though not in the amount of plastic but in price point.

Good find, I wouldn't mind a 3p Legends sized Slammer with bot mode or not and a Scout sized Six Gun with new alt mode.

MACRAPTRON

Scamper is the most adorable name for an Autobot ever. He needs to team up with ones named Mittens and Coco.

Scamper's such a little scamp.
UltraAlanMagnus
Scamper?

Yeah-Yuh!
Rodimus Mike
I just hope when it gets time for the release of Scamper and Metroplex I will be able to find them before TRU jacks the price up drastically to say $150.I will be watching TRU.com every day and I'll be ready to hit that submit order button when he does,this is going in my collection if I have to camp out at the store if I have to.

Lol! I know right! I've always wanted an "I saw what you did there". Lol
IaconStargazer
It's a blurry pic, but he looks pretty cool.
Blitz.
I need this in my life
barrelks
Hell, I would have taken a SDCC or TRU exclusive version with repaints of Legends Warpath and Silverstreak as Slammer and Scamper (even if Slammer didn't transform on the G1 toy).
Dolza_Khyron
i think it looks alright. but not great. but i guess they decided "who really cares about the legends figure?"
starscream-99
Awesome! Hope he's a commander class.
Stepper
As long as he is included in the Metroplex,am fine with it
mandiprime97
Awesomeness.
Stepper
Legand class definitely suit well for the Titan Metroplex
shibamura_prime
Hells. Yeah.

It seems like the new Generations Legends are pretty much going to be Cyberverse Commanders. Or at least of similar engineering.
Paradigm-Shift Prime
BOOOOOO to lights and sounds. Means he will be worse and leader-figurishly bricky...

Not really. The dude's 2 feet tall, which means all his electronics will probably fit in the upper chest, which wasn't gonna be very mobile anyway.

Until you realize one of his quotes might be "METROPLEX HEEDS THE CALL OF THE LAST PRIME."

Then you'll buy two.
Dinodigger97
Scamper, uh.





My investiment in this guy just increased tenfold. Now I just want Slammer and Six-Gun and I'll be complete.
daddytron
If Metroplex is in fact a TRU exclusive they should call him "Scalper." Thanks folks, I'll be here all night.

Once this comes out, Six-Gun would be a great figure for a 3rd party group to tackle.
Infosaur
The original Scamper was like a Limo crossed with a semi interbred with a sports car.

This looks more like the tank/troop transport from Aliens from what I can see.
Bass X0
Now I want a repaint into Metrodash.

I just peed my pants at the thought of that. :O
jestermon
I knew there had to be the details of the features somewhere on the box.

They have always said he had lights and sounds when did that become a question?
