    Usually I would, but Ebay sellers can be a hassle; even when the product was brand new like in this case

    That's the main reason I stick to actual retailers for 3P stuff. My first copy of Titan had a missing magnet in the head and the electronics didn't work, but BBTS gave me a replacement one no problem and that one was perfect.

    Omega Supreme is pretty damn good quality wise, but Metroplex and Tripticon are the most G1 Fateful in alt modes while being an SD.

    Youve opened pandoras box there. I have them all and I to say they are an amazing line. All of them covered in detail and have excellent build quality. The Apollo (Omega
    supreme) with the head kit is my favorite.

    Master Made....I insanely despise the SD Metroplex battery design compartment so bad that I feeling like swearing to never, ever, purchase anything make by Master Made. Even today, I failed to place the battery into the compartment for Metroplex eyes and chest. I remembered back then feeling like a retard person who couldn't put a simple button cells into the compartment. I got so pissed off I felt like taking a hammer and breaking Metroplex into multiple pieces, lol. As it stands, this is still my only figure from Master Made.

    With that being said, love the designing of both SD UM and Metroplex as a figure.

    Does anyone else really wish they'd do a V2 of this figure? Metroplex is by far my favorite citybot and this is one of my favorite figures ever, but there are definitely improvements that could be made (mostly to the alt modes). Plus they've clearly learned a lot as evidenced by their more recent offerings. Here are some things I'd like them to do:

    - Incorporate the head into the transformation more
    - Retool the knees so he can lock them in carrier mode and bend them in different ways to make a more cohesive base mode
    - Give him a sixgun or some other companion that can transform
    - Include some of the extra parts that came with the bust
    - Retool the arms to hide the hands in base mode

    See my photo below.
    Me, I never got a chance to put the rest of the battery on since the battery compartment design was a joke.

    I'm definitely down for an accurate G1 Metroplex on all 3 modes. Even with V1, I mistransformed the shoulder so that it mimic the G1 Metroplex shoulder antenna, see pic above. Ideally I want all 3 Metroplex companions, but if it limits to one, then yes, Sixgun. Agreed with the other suggestions.
