Takara-Tomy's Hisashi Yuki has tweeted some new in-hand images of Takara-Tomy's upcoming releases for the Japanese Generations line. His tweets include a shot of this month's Springer and Blitzwing in front of their boxes, along with some more images of the Japanese release of Metroplex, including one of Metroplex standing behind the Generations Legends Optimus Prime and Bumblebee figures, making them look very tiny indeed! We have mirrored these images on our post here - read on to check them out!

The flight deck is white?

Has takara posted official images of their metroplex yet? If not it's odd because it's due to be released next month.

Yeah, this has been known for awhile now, at least since Tokyo Toy Show.

Springer looks much more vibrant green than the stock photos have indicated. (Which were more olive green) That's good because it does look better, but bad because now he's not different enough for me to want him very much.

I've been semi-following the available Metroplexes. I was waiting for some more definitive TakaraTomy pics hoping that version would have more paint apps instead of stickers. Still not sure how that particular question sways, but I was always impressed by the tarmac covered flight deck of the Hasbro version which it seems the TakaraTomy version doesn't have. The SDCC versions have the black flight decks, right?

These images block all the parts I want to see. Also, does anyone know if the ACG-Con Metroplex is just the SDCC Metroplex or this Metroplex with the same chrome and added parts as the SDCC Metroplex. I like the white flight deck as the original G1 figure was white.

I think that's about the best looking Springer toy yet.

Well at least this seems to confirm Scamper...

ehh, it's kind'a a tank,

i do like the white deck.

however, i still like my original metroplex more.

it functions better as a transformer.

NArrrrrghhh! I wish we'd get some official images of this sucker. I've got very important decisions to make!

I have the Hasbroplex coming, and I'm more than happy with it, as well as the Blitzwing & Springer. I think the Hasbro versions look much better, and since I paid way less....I'm even happier about them.

I wish we'd get better picture of the Takara Metroplex. That's the one I'm getting, because I'm sure it'll be better then the Hasbro and will cost the same to me due to the fact that the Hasbro looks like it'll be $180 over here.

Yeah the chrome face didn't persuade me. I got my Blitzing about a month ago from them, incredibly quick shipping. I ordered my Metroplex on Friday and it was suppose to be here today, but it wont arrive until tomorrow now. Just wish they had MP Soundwave on their site.

I doubt the Takara one has stickers. He definitely has a lot more painted details based on the photos. There's a lot of little things here and there on him.

You mean Metroplex from ACG-Con in Hong Kong? It is identical to SDCC Metroplex except those decoys are in gold and silver.
Stepper
SDCC Metroplex is Hasbro version or TakTomy version?

Actually im betting at this point (against what I want it to be) that the Takara one has stickers. The Autobot symbol pretty clearly looks like a sticker and the fact that the yellow striped "hazard" details above the shoulder gun are exactly the same deco as the sticker makes me think that. If it was a tampo I doubt they would use the same WFC inspired pattern on the sticker with cybertronian writing. I would guess the poster just picked a few stickers to apply and left the rest off (most notably the black thigh stickers and the knee stickers are unapplied). Also note that of the added paint deco, there is no added paint anywhere where stickers get applied. Another reason I think im right.

Man I hope im wrong, but I don't think so. If this thing does indeed have the stickers im not getting it.

OUCH - even more damning evidence.



In this image if you look at the deck it is missing one of the yellow arrow stickers on the right hand side just below the book. In addition, again, that deco for the arrow is exactly the same as the sticker. If it was a tampo I would expect it to not have the printed "lense flair" in it like the stickers do.

Also here;



You can see the reflection coming off of the gloss of the stickers. BOOOOOO

Neither, the three main versions and what easily identified them are:
-Hasbro (White face, white thighs)
-SDCC (Chrome face, Chrome thighs)
-Takara (Chrome face, silver thighs)
CybertronianFan
Can they confirm what voice waves this release of Metroplex uses (and in what language)?

I like Takara's Blitzwing, Springer not so much...well that and the fact I already own the Hasbro version.
Starscream Gaga
I'd also like to know if the Takara Metroplex has a Japanese voice for the sound clips?

I'm really hoping not, has there been any confirmation?

What's the gold wings on scamper from ?

Definitely puts most other springer figures to shame. I have my Hasbro one and haven't even transformed him yet because he looks so great out of the box in robot mode

Damn, Metroplex looks awesome

The light grey on Springer looks really bad with the green and yellow.

Glad TT Metroplex comes with stickers!
