    I'd have little use for an RED Metroplex that's robot-mode only. But a city-mode only Metroplex... now that could be interesting.

    Yeah, a giant non-transforming hyper accurate to the toon Metroplex is really going to be a bland and boring oversized and overpriced action figure.

    Given all the third parties and knockoffs that they do nothing about, why bother applying for a patent at all?

    You know, it would be pretty damn cool if we got like a full sized Metroplex playset that mainline figures could walk around in.

    Non-transforming? Odd. So either a Heroes of Cybertron style mini figure, I guess, or a playset base?

    Buddy. Hb has done a lot of clusterfks (distribution post TrUS and beerbug is the pits:banghead: ) but a blanket everything they make is very much unfair. TF btw IS their creation (Takara just excels in the presentation (culture and all)). And aside from SW (which is another clusterfk by KKs sequels not GL's originals) are still their hottest products EVAH!
    Heck, they're actually releasing the 1986 Quintesson gang is a risk enough that deserves a :bowdown:  :buttrock  for the effort!

    I can see the R.E.D. line using this and making combiners like Devastator into large action figures. It would make it so people can get those characters without spending so much and then for hasbro to not sell enough they go to TJMax and Ross dress for less.

    You have a grand total of 15 posts to your name, all of them exceedingly negative, and I know for a fact that you already had almost half a dozen posts wiped out by the mods on your first night because you were being a bigoted jackass.

    Begone, troll.

    I don't get it... if you hate Hasbro so much, why are you even on this site?

    Didn't Hasbro raid Weijiang recently? They definitely don't do nothing about it.
