    Somebody industrious could easily spraypaint (or maybe dye) the horrid neon pink to a darker red.

    Always wanted a City bot, and I think Metrotitan would work nicely...

    It looks a lot better with the stickers on.
    And by "a lot better" I mean "nowhere as near as bloody silly".
    I must say I'm tempted.

    That pink looks horrible. If I ever get one those parts will be repainted.

    Hmmm...seeing my decepticons are pretty outnumbered in my collection, especially as far as bases are concerned (ie. zero against five)...Metrotitan would be a nice addition indeed.

    Yup, definitely not a fan of the pink. This totally makes it look like a KO and not something that could maybe pass as an original. Meh.

    I still think it's funny that the red, white and blue city robot is a Decepticon. :lol

    hey spence. Are these in stock or are did you get a test sample? If you have the in stock will you or the maker be discounting these error figures to offset getting stuck with the wrong color. Will the color be notated on the listing for your store when you get red in?

    It really is not that much different thatn the original, either that or I got sold a KO. The colors really are that funky, and the red/pink is the ONLY real notable difference, metro titans red is a BRIGHT almost neon red. That being said I'll probably pass as the reason I know all this is I just looked at my Metrotitan for comparison

    This was a test sample. I had one couriered out just to make sure of the colouring on these before everything was shipped. I have these with many of the Alt figures that will arrive in April.

    For more info on prices of these you will have to check our latest newsletter.

    It is quite different from an original in colour. The red on the original was indeed quite vibrant but it was still a red. This is more pink in colour, much like a highlighter. Not a pink like fuscha but still a shade of pink, IMO.

    Spencer.

    The pinkness almost makes me more inclined to order one of these. I don't like getting KO's unless it is visually obvious that they ARE KO's.... that way I don't feel like I'm "faking" having a rare piece (I know, it's a weird logic... and I definitely don't want to go down the "evils vs. virtues of KO's" route in this thread). With the pink parts it would be clearly bootleg, but still neat-looking in its own right. Like the clear Mirage.

    Not to mention, hot pink is SO wonderfully 1980's. :) 

    So, Spencer.... can Ages Three and Up sell these again, then? I thought Hasbro put the kibosh on that. I wouldn't want you guys to get in trouble!

    I remain undecided. A bit too expensive for a KO, IMO.

    Now, if it was Scorponok...

    Hmmm. Nice pics and I might seriously consider purchasing this 'bot in the near future to battle my original Metroplex.

    i like how the pink looks, and how the black breaks it up...i'll get him since it's much easier to tell the diff between it and the original

    I second this question. I'll definitely be on-board for one if I can be assured of getting a red one.
