    I have a TG-23 Metroplex and the Scamper I have looks like the one on the box not like the figure next to it. Now when I mention all black I am referring to the figure on the left and when I talk about grey and black it's the box art. Head and weapon are red for all and visor is blue for everyone far as i can tell.

    I have the LG-EX Reissue of Metroplex and, though the box still depicts the Black/Grey Scamper, mine is totally black.
    I don't know if this means that it was the case for the full run or if there may have been a running change, you'll need more LG-EX owners to chime in to figure that out.

    But not all-knowing! I'm at work so I only have limited internet access, but the few photos I could look up confirm the all-black Scamper.
