    Hey I needed to know if anybody is selling/willing to sell or knows someone who’s selling the scamper figure that came with the metroplex released a few years ago. It was the only thing I lost when I moved and I can’t find anybody online who sells it. (I’m probably not willing to pay more than 15 dollars for it btw and if you find a listing online please link it no matter the price because I may be willing to pay more than 15 bucks I don’t know how much I really care.)

    I think you have to make a certain amount of posts before you can, no?

    A quick ebay search doesn't show any listings for the Generations Scamper, while the G1 version is going for around $25-ish for just the body.

    If it were me, I would just buy Deep Cover (black Sideswipe) for $20, and paint it. But I like to customize figures. Bonus feature, in that it would scale along with the newer Sixgun and Slammer figures.

    I can't imagine myself being able to find a gen Scamper for cheap.

    In my case, Cybertron Crosswise is my Scamper.

    As someone who has been looking ever since Metroplex was released. I've only ever seen one list for something insane like $50 and yes it did sell.

    Bit of a pricey option to get the mold but Botcon Scorponok is available. Don't know if you'd necessarily want him for the prices asked though.

    As someone who ended up having to shell out a ton to get a complete metroplex (and gave up trying to piece one little by little) best bet is to probably sell your metroplex for as much as possible on eBay, and then try and just get a complete one. When I was trying to piece one together I needed a scamper, and a auction( for just scamper ) ended at almost $100....

    So I gave up sold the incomplete metroplex, and just used the funds towards a complete one. I really needed one towards my goal of getting every Titan figure. would be great if they redid OR re-released metroplex for more fans to own.

    It’s going to be expensive due to the figure being rare and sought after now and it coming with only metroplex so the question would be why someone separate him from metro. Good luck to the buyer tho just be prepared to pay way more than 15

    Who's going to sell an important part of their Metroplex set for $15? Realistically, you may have to pay over 50% of Metroplex's original retail value for Scamper.

    I can only advise not to ever pronounce it "potahto" in front of an Irishman... @barry can you confirm?
