    Utopia is more in scale with Trypticon, so if they made a new Metroplex that might be a good target.

    Aaaaand, as many have already said, a new Metroplex would be a good base for a new FortMax too! Wouldn’t mind another crack at him.

    In any case, Slammer sounds like he’ll be awesome. (G2 Sideswipe from siege makes a decent deluxe Scamper, minus a couple wheels).
    Can’t wait!!!!

    It was just a "what if" scenario illustrating examples of how expectations and reality are 2 separate things.

    Or would you like to take the Kingdom Galvatron exaple, where an awesome toy has battle damage? Yup, next Metroplex is perfectly engineered, but has 4 gallons of battle damage paint.

    Eh for me it all comes down to tone. Many folks have the “Damn, I missed it when I didn’t have the money/wasn’t collecting so that sucks” attitude. With them, I totally can sympathize and wish them all the luck in finding their grail at a cheap price. But a small handful on the boards seem to believe Hasbro is personally insulting them by not offering something sold a decade ago and they demand Hasbro offer concessions immediately.
    Those people come off as entitled, whiny assholes who I truly hope never get the product they are looking for.

    It looks like Slammer has Modulator parts for at least part of his body! Makes sense since he's partner of a citybot!

    Sorry if this has already been mentioned, but Slammer's message from the future says "You're part of something larger" could that be a hint to a reissue or a new version of Metroplex?

    I’ve wondered for a while now: Where do you find these product descriptions? Amazon Australia, or something?

    Head sculpt looks a lot like iron factor slammer. Actually Hasbro seems to be taking a lot of design cues from the iron factory version

    Yes, what is the point of this hypothetical ....

    Point being, there will always be someone complaining about something, no matter how good it comes out. "Well, (toy) is pretty perfect, except it's .0001mm too small" or some other garbage.

    On topic: Slammer looks fantastic and I can't wait to try out his tower mode, although I will be displaying him either in bot mode or as weapons for other characters

    No complaints from me. Always liked the if slammer and came too late to the game. This certainly tickles my fancy

    This is awesome, but I'm still really hoping for a Scamper. He's definitely a design I would have bought as a kid had he been a separate figure in a larger size. His vehicle mode is really cool.

    If Hasbro remakes any titan cities, I hope they make them bigger. I want a larger Metroplex and Trypticon that stand at the same height. Fortress Maximus is the worst looking of the bunch, and needs an upgrade more than the other titans though. I like the G1 Fortress Maximus better than the Titans Return version. At least the other 3 city bots looked better and were larger than their G1 toy.

    I'd rather get a Nemisis to go against the Ark, or a blue gurdian robot first before redoing the city titans though. Since they have never had an official toy before.

    Save the Commander Class size for characters like Powermaster Optimus Prime, Overlord, Deathsaurus, Broadside, and Tidalwave. Commander Class Grand Maximus would work, since he is supposed to be smaller than a Titan.

    You are correct - the LG-EX at BBTS came out January 15, 2019 for $259.99 USD. At the time Meteoplex was the only Titan I was missing and on eBay a used Generations Meteoplex was $300 so same as you I bought the new LG-EX for $260 from BBTS.

    JTPrime often doesn't like to reveal his sources in order to keep Hasbro from closing up the leaks.
