    I'm so jealous ! Like I've said before(in previous post) I have plans for this big guy one day . I think if you put only G1 styled autobots in Metroplex he'd look better....in my opinion .

    And I love all the compartments you've built into him !

    Very nice. It'd be funny to repaint your Classics Metroplex to look like G1 Six-Gun to act as a mini sidekick for your giant Metroplex. =D

    Also, there's something paradox breaking about having a Unicron inside of Metroplex. *Mind blown*

    Wow.. Using the Ironman mask it actually a GREAT idea for the base of a face. Bravo for thinking outside the box (pun intended) there.

    That's one way to get a 20 minute workout.

    And its a full body work out too!
    It feels like the last 30% is taking forever. But I should have some new progress pics in a day or so.

    Thus a new catagory of custom Transformers is born.

    I can't wait to see what it looks like in the end.

    Im slowly getting around to doing some detail to the big guy.
    Ive done a little to his chest and started painting his face, i like the look of FOC Metroplex but im not sure if it suits mine.
    Let me know what you think!

    The FOC mods you've made look nice but I find they unfortunately water-down the iconic G1 aesthetic that his boxy frame had so far adhered to. I was looking forward to you pushing the G1 detailing to the max. Just my 2ยข though. You go your own way.

    I think the FOC lines on his face looks good and I'm really not into the FOC design of Metroplex . In my opinion what you've done to the face has really made a big difference from making it looking NOT like an iron man mask .

    Wow, this is a hell of an ambitious project for your first, and welcome to TFW! Looks like a router came in handy with this project, I really need to get one of those for all the work I do with particle-board....but the new 2-ft Metroplex in the pic really puts in perspective the size of this guy, nice work!

    Sooo epic! That nose makes all the difference on his face too, love the additional details.

    You sure you're not gonna wear this for Halloween and go trick or treating tonight? You'd def get all the candy...
