I don’t really get where you’re getting this idea that Metroplex is failing at what he was supposed to be. Looking at the original, he only looks different in being more modern. Considering that half the G1-inspired Titans’ alt modes look like playmobil sets, I just don’t see what’s so bad about this one. The Titans’ main appeal come from accuracy to characters based on toys that didn’t turn into a lot of recognizable things in their day. Metroplex, Fortress Maximus, Trypticon, and Scorponok all turn into “cities” which really don’t look like cities any way you look at them. Trypticon looks cool, but if you asked a kid what it was, I doubt their first guess would be “city.” Omega looks accurate and is pretty cool, but he still looks like a Playmobil set. Scorponok’s scorpion mode looks alright, but it doesn’t look *that* much like a Scorpion. The point is that they’re all modern versions of an older character and try to stay accurate to their past. I don’t see how Legacy Metroplex is any different. He looks pretty accurate in both modes, and if you asked someone what he turned into, I think the general scoops and treads give enough evidence to say “oh it’s some futuristic/alien construction vehicle. I’m just saying, I don’t see how people are complaining about Cybertron Metroplex not turning into anything when you’ve got Trypticon and Fort Max and G1 Metroplex turning into nothing as well. Metroplex succeeds at being what he’s supposed to be: a modern version of Cybertron Metroplex.
