    Here's my take on a "Kreon Scale" Metroplex. Where Kreon Scale means that it uses a Kreon head, and isn't built at large vehicle scale like the larger parts of the Kre-O sets. Whatever... just look at the pics and tell me what you think.


    Attachment 1 shows Metroplex and his articulation.

    Attachment 2 shows his chest gimmicks -- he has a little Scamper toy in his chest.

    Attachment 3 shows all his accessories, how his arms are constructed, and his heel spurs.

    Attachment 4 shows him in his alt mode (including how many parts are left over when you transform him) -- and with Aerialbots attached.

    You hardcore builders make me realize I'm just playing with bricks over here. That is an awesome custom.

    Nguyen is an oriental last name. In some areas like Vietnam it is pronounce 'win' Like it is full of win. ;)  I have also heard it pronounced like 'new win' and a few other ways.

    Also OT it is a kick ass custom and you should be selling these. :D

    Thanks man. I appreciate it.


    I got it. *smile*


    It's funny -- I only jumped into building when Kre-O came out. I still feel like a learner here. It's a real compliment for you to say that I'm a hardcore builder!

    (Having the bricks sorted *really* helps my builds I find, if you want one little tip.)

    Thanks for all your kind words guys.

    Quoted for Truth.

    I'm loving everything about this. Do you have an 'ingredient' list with all the required parts? Do they all come in one of the sets or you have to consolidate the parts from several? You don't know how much I need a Kreo Metroplex right now...

    I agree with Fakebusker;

    Ingredient list! Maybe with some instructions, too...

    Dude, this is great. Props for working in the transformation and the combination. I'm all thumbs!


    ...which makes wiping a little weird but it's all good...

    This reminds me of how awesome an upscaled version would look. I'd probably buy up a bunch of those Battleship and G.I. Joe Kre-O sets to make it happen.

    Absolutely fantastic! As some other people have said, it would be even better scaled up one or two sizes, otherwise perfect.
