DSC01383
Fresh from the BotCon 2013 show room floor we have now Hasbro case images of the upcoming SDCC Metroplex. This Transformers item is the largest converting Transformers toy ever made, standing at more than two feet tall. The Transformers Generations Titan Class Metroplex converts from robot into a rolling battle platform, and to an Autobot City, inhabited by 12 miniature Autobot and Decepticon figures, as well as a Legends-scale Scamper figure.

Check out all the new SDCC 2013 Metroplex images after the jump.

So those extra figs are non transforming, non articulation red and purple figures? I'll just get retail version, thanks
mcConvoy
2013 Decoys!!!
allew
I've always liked Phil Jimenez's art and he kicked ass on the Metroplex boxart. Wish that JLA/Transformers crossover project of his had been made.
bonewire
return of Decoys?
WhiteMocha
With the red and purple coloring, the little figures seem like homages to the old Decoys. I can dig that.

Of course, the amusing thing is that if these little guys are supposed to be to scale, that makes Scamper a gigantic beast.
icewolf74
As cool as the box art is, I think I am gonna stick with the retail version. Much easier to get and a little cheaper than the SDCC version.

Decoys look cool, but I think the reason people will go ape-nuts over it is for the chrome and extra gun. Just shows what kind of fandom we are, going bonkers for some flashy plastic and... an extra gun.

With that said...

... I'm buying it.
Slimaximus
Disappointed in the decoys, wish they would have thrown in like a 6 pack of legends figs
Barnone2431
Not digging the decoys but i still def wanna get this.
Anthony _aggro
Decoy / Mini figs = Disappointing in a major way.
LDM
damn that chrome.

When do I have to camp out the HTS

They are probably leading the charge into battle and he is traveling with them, not after him. I think it is kind of funny that it looks like Optimus is about to fall into that hole.



On the Mini Fig / decoy thing: They are all the designs of the 2014 Anniversary figures. It seems like a marketing ploy to get people to buy them when they get tired of the decoys.

Not sure if anyone found this.
ChiefWave
does anyone know if this SDCC version will be on pre order through bbts?
BenjaminXavier
So I wonder what else they have to drop this weekend then
negamegatron
Well as I'm not going to SDCC and I'm not to going to waste a day (or days) camping out at HTS/BBTS/etc, I wonder if this version will be cheaper than my preorder for the Takara version? My bank account says there can be only one that has an extra gun...
CodeXCDM
They should've just went with re-releases of the older Legends figures TBH... as opposed to the red/purple mini statuettes of IDW-styled characters, I think...

Also... with the amount of detailing and chrome added... you'd think they'd paint his wheels.

That said though... this should *easily* sell as fast as the Bruticus set from last year. So blech... not getting it. =.
Rodimus Mike
I just went to BBTS and preordered Metroplex,I hope they are strictly certain to get them August 1st.I am so giddy about getting the tallest TF in history.I just wish I was at BotCon so I coulda got one there,they are so mouth watering,can't wait to get it.

Also why did BBTS break the July 1st day a day and a half early,but I am glad they did,I just hope they have enough to fill my order as I have a feeling he is gonna fly when they get them in.
KingStyle
So us the order

Takara
SDCC
retail
?
Fanatic97
Actully thsoe little figurines look like they have articuation...perhaps they are prtotypes...TO LEGENDS VERSIONS OF THOSE CHARHCTERS!

Or I could be wrong.

By he by the only downer so far is the upscaled Cyberverse which should die very quickly I MUST HAVE THOSE GENERATIOSN TOYS!

*Drool*
Goldbolt
I don't understand why this deco and the second gun isn't standard for the retail version too. The fancy box and the decoy's for SDCC make sense but really, how much more expensive could that possibly add?
gary39
i saw several om ebay for "presale" $270 to over $300 shipping $15 to $25

"Find"? We have a video review sub-forum. The reviewer posted it there.
LadyStarscream
I would be interested in purchasing the seeker decoys from those who don't care about them. I am still undecided on SDCC or retail version. Those chrome thighs! So nice! Is the retail version stark white, where SDCC is off white?
combaticon164
Going to stick with the Takara one instead of waiting by the computer to get a figure that I think is slightly inferior in paint apps and that comes with rubber decoys.
siniquezu
poor red alert left out of the new MP charge (excluding the datsun brothers)
Lbsammills51
It was stated that this would come with metallic stickers...either they're not applied on the sample on display we see here or they just don't show up that well?

Decoys are ok...I think I'm leaning toward SDCC but I'm still mixed.

Of course. Expect a decent markup though.

Considering the markup placed on SDCC items after the convention by online retailers that resell theirs and eBay, importing the Takara version could easily come in cheaper than picking up the SDCC version on the secondary market. You'll lose the mini-figs, chrome thighs and this artwork on the box, but keep everything else more or less and possibly save money.

Easy, Amazon listed it for preorder ahead of time, so BBTS put it up early as well.
conleyh2006
someone please help me score this set i have 200.00 i can spend on him if anyone who has legit feedback either here or on ebay can help send me a pm lol this figure is awesome with all the chrome now come on third party guys show us your upgrade kits that are inevitable to have six gun with him lol
JETFIRE714
Hopefully they can sell SDCC exclusives to kids with kids passes, I may send my 7 year old with my brother and cousin when they go to SDCC... need to train him how to line up and get him a prepaid debit card..
Zaibach
I did want the SDCC version, but after seeing those pictures i'm not so sure. I don't care for the mini figures since they aren't even painted. I'm really not digging the chrome on the face either. I may just go for the standard version now.
sh002
The bigger box, chrome parts, extra gun, and figurines don't impress me that much. Sticking to my preorder at BBTS. Guess I won't be looking for much this time around on HTS after SDCC.

Um, well...if this post is serious, why wouldn't you just have one of the people that's taking your kid (your brother or cousin) and have them wait several hours in line instead so your kid can go off and enjoy SDCC with the other person going with them?
TheTFReview
Looks like the only TF exclusive (besides jetfire) that i'm getting will be the guardians set. It's the only really exclusive toy and that packing will look epic in my collection.
Grapple35
I have the TT version on pre-order. I think this one will be more expensive so I will stick with TT since I have never been able to get any of the SDCC stuff on HTS and forced to resort to Ebay.

They do but I believe they limit the amount of toys he can buy with a kids pass to 1 per each item.
ChiefWave
just bought the last sdcc on ebay for 249 +16 ship.Hopefully thats a normal mark up price.I wonder if bbts will be similar pricing
LeoPrime
Not digging the chrome thighs. I understand they were going for that G1 look, and that worked for the G1 toy but here it just looks kinda gaudy.
JETFIRE714
@Lbsa, my brother and cousin have the 4 day passes and will be buying SDCC exclusives for themselves.. my son wants to tag along one of those days to check out Comic Con (plus its free for him)..

@TFR, thanks for the info, I live in Tustin as well..

Same here. Normally I like the added touch of chrome, but it just doesn't work on him.
CybertronianFan
I like this version. Although I had wished they stuck more completely with the FoC aspect and the mini-figs that come with it were more amongst the WfC/FoC figs (besides Starscream that is).
Dark Magnus
Well, the decoys, while a cool throwback to G1, are disappointing. Also, Metroplex's thighs don't look that good chromed and his face, while G1 accurate, looks too "chromey" IMO. Looks like I'll just give the retail version the silver sharpie treatment for his unpainted face and save myself so money and stress.
seanb47
Jimenez artwork is so delicious on that box! That is definitely going to help sell this guy.Shoot,I want one after seeing those pics.
Spider 001
I think the Hasbro version is too plain. Looks like a prototype that wasn't painted/finished. This one looks great with the chrome to break up all that plain white plastic. I'm definitely getting this one.
grimlock1972
nice decoys , sticking with the less expensive retail Metroplex though.
Feralstorm
I'll give HTS a shot when the time comes. Though if the site stock is cleared out in four minutes I'll just go retail. )
giga-galvatron
I really want this version with the 2 guns but if this ends up more than TT I might get TT version. Who an i kidding, if I see him retail I'm buying
Yggdrasil
Locing the extra gun, not so keepn on the chrome looks weird. I dunno, maybe I'll jsut buy the Hasbro version and get the extra gun on ebay is some wants so cell it.

BUT DAT ARTWORK ERHMEGAD!

I want that shit on my wall NOW!
