    I just finished painting my Metroplex and have used the Metropolis head, the plastic quality is excellent IMO and its proportion to the body is a lot better than the stock one. I haven't photograph Metroplex yet but I'll post pics probably this weekend on Radicons.

    Quality is great, the molding is sharp. Just don't like the off-silver shade they used for the face but apart from that i'd highly recommend it. Completely changes the figure (in a good way)

    I am big fan of it, just applied it to SDCC version of Metroplex yesterday and I really like the look of it. Going to order the X2 toys gun (white) and maybe some reprolabels or eness decals for him.

    It adds more character to the figure for sure, the extra radars and guns are decent too.

    Mine just arrived today and it looks awesome. Looking at metroplex with his normal noggin now puts me in mind of that head shrinking seen of Beetlejuice.

    Has this been confirmed or is it just a rumor? I'm tempted to pick up one of these but not if UT is planning on coming out with another version, say one whose face better matches SDCC Metroplex.

    I'd love to see some pics of your guys Metro with the new head. Still up in the air about the head but all of you seem to really like it. Maybe I should get it.

    Pics pweez :D

    So, no one has heard if UT is going to come out with another version of this set?

    Anyone care to post pics of theirs from a straight on from a full front view? Almost all the reviewers so far have just angled the head towards the camera so you can see his face. I'd like to see his face in relation to the entire body...i.e. the proportion, the eyes, etc.

    Seconded. I can't figure out if the new head is better proportioned or it is too big.

    This is the only full body picture I've been able to find of Metroplex with the UT add on kit:

    http://chimungmung.com/images/10277320_496731907092984_242104134226478880_n.jpg

    Not sure if it's an official picture or just some photo shopped mock up.

    Found a $20 Ebay coupon in my email. So, I took the plunge and got this kit for all of $14. I'll install it once it arrives, take some pictures and post them up here. That is, of course, unless someone else beats me to it.

    It looks bigger in the pictures than it does in real life. I am looking at the figure now and it looks perfectly proportioned, but when I look at the photos I took for my blog somehow it looks slightly bigger?

    It is very good, and improves the figure.
