    No opinions matter. Only focus groups.

    I think the issue here is that the early 2000s anime era really doesn't have that many titans that aren't in controversy. Tidal Wave loses a gimmick at titan scale, Brave Max is a less well-known repaint, Primus would probably have to be on Haslab and people will want him eye to eye with Unicron, Omega Supreme just had his G1 counterpart released a couple of years ago and Starscream will make people want a voyager or leader.

    Is this a copypasta of some sort?

    I\'m personally thrilled to see this is happening. As someone who grew up on the Unicron Trilogy, it\'s great to see the characters I loved as a kid getting modern updates.

    Looks very faithful to the original design, and it’s absolutely incredible to see something besides G1 rehashed yet again. That said, I doubt I’ll be getting it since I still have Cybertron Metroplex and don’t really feel the need to own it again in a larger size. The alt mode has never been great, but I’d rate G1 Metroplex and Fort Max in the same vein of terrible alt modes…Cybertron Metroplex crouches, and the other guys lay down and do yoga.

    But once again, I’m very happy to see more continuities getting love! G1 doesn’t have to stop completely, but there’s plenty of room to include the other series’ remakes as well.

    Not my thing but I'm glad that other toy lines are getting some notice. Can't say that I like that price though.

    As much as I would have loved a Titan-sized Tidal Wave, that idea would have worked better in the "redesign/modernize everything" design era.

    If there's even a hint of a chance that they'll ever revisit Armada Megatron again, Tidal Wave is suppose to have that combining gimmick with him. Which wouldn't work if Tidal Wave were ginormous. So Commander Class is probably the limit for him.

    I'm hoping this version looks better than the Cybertron Leader Metroplex figure, because that thing was an ugly mess.

    I\'m so down for train bots as another poster mentioned, but this Metroplex is probably a hard pass for me.  Looks cool and very faithful so glad for those wanting this.  I just know I\'m not likely ever getting a true update of G1 Metroplex.  I know some think thr 2013 one is that, but its not.  Pretty soon the only G1 update issing will be a proper citybot, I don\'t see it happening.  

    Oh well, if McFarlane keeps releasing cool Warhammer and Spawn figures my funds will go there instead.

    Characters I’d take as Titan Figures before this:-

    1 - R.I.D Build Team.
    2 - R.I.D Rail Racer.
    3 - Energon Omega Supreme with double headmaster and Optimus (Cab only).
    4 - Armada OP, Jetfire and Overload Combiner.
    5 - Cybertron Primus.

    I feel like there's a Hasbro designer that felt it's been almost there and wanting to do a new one ever since and when the boss said "Alright, let's try a Titan from outside G1" and the guy stood up and said "my time has come".
