Or better yet, re-issue a larger, upscaled Titans Return Trypticon.
Both are the same height. Only Trypticon/Dinoser being a dino, well stoops.
Hb/Takara more or less won't risk too much investment on a "bad guy" character. Even the recent awesome Scorponok had his budget nuked (smaller than that of Omega Supreme according to Hasui iirc).
What are you talking about? I'm really sick of how people on this website completely make something up in their own heads that I didn't write and then act like I said it.
A new Metroplex literally solves all the issues that a reissue would with the added benefit of being a better figure.
Titan citizens were my favorite thing about Siege. I thought Slammer would be a retool. This is so hype. I am ecstatic.
A new Metroplex will be great if we also get Metrotitan....
I'm so glad Slammer isn't going to be a freaking Warpath redeco/retool.
With all the talk of backwards-compatibility with T30 Metro, I'm just hoping that Slammer can be combined into something cool with Sixgun...
Also, since this description has been leaked, does this mean he will be in wave 4? I know there was some speculation that him and Pipes were possibly being moved to wave 5, so hopefully this is a sign we'll see Slammer (& Pipes) soon.
Love the cross compatibility. It's so easy to do, and it's so smart. They should have been doing a lot more of this forever. TF are perfect - there are always slots, holes, etc that can be used for things like this. I'm sure someone will make that dirty.
considering this character hasn\'t had a robot mode before, I\'m intrigued
Cool, I can’t wait to finish the team.
Hopefully this means we might get a complete Metrotitan set under Selects. I don’t really want a new Metroplex mould, but I’ll buy it if it comes.
Being a weaponiser partsforming is no biggie! Finally the team is complete. Though based on JP lore, those two BEffing Guns of Legends Metroflex are actually Sixgun and Slammer. So this will be in the era prior to his final battle with Metrotitan. Or Takara retcons this again.
I look forward his "tower mode" and how it interfaces.
Maybe Slammer will come with the golden disc card "Optimus Prime eats steak at Texas Roadhouse."
On the note of a potential new metroplex, I'd love to see a smaller/stockier metroplex that's got less height and more bulk. Maybe shove in some new city mode gimmicks with the redistributed bulk.
A "Stooping" Trypticon in the cartoon was same height as Metroplex standing straight?
The Titan Metroplex size is off.
You asked for a Reissue, which TakaTom already answered that call with their LG-EX version.
The pricing/affordability is another separate thing altogether.
What part of “TAKARATOMY MALL EXCLUSIVE” did you not get?!
I want to get my hands on Metroplex WITHOUT resorting to selling vital organs, thank you very much
I don’t think I would even get Metroplex if he was reissued. He’s very dated compared to the recent Titans and doesn’t have a great base mode. And the design itself seemed to split the difference between adapting G1 Metroplex and FOC Metroplex and subsequently didn’t really satisfy as a representation for either.
it would be cool if they took another swipe at a Titan Metroplex but with the way it seems Titans will be phased out soon I’d rather new characters take up whatever slots are left. I enjoy Sixgun as an individual figure with no Metro to go with so I’m sure I can enjoy Scamper just the same.
LG-EX was $260 on BBTS ~2-3 years ago. We’re you not looking for one then?
If I recall, eBay for Generations Metroplex around that time was around ~$200-400, which was why I had no problem buying the LG-EX version.
Maybe they’ll reissue the Generations one like they did with Combiner Wars Devastator or just do a brand new one after Autobot Ark.
Same. I didn’t really look forward to Slammer after getting Warpath in hand, lol.
I didn't get Warpath because i was waiting for the then-apparent Slammer repaint and I didn't want two of that particular mold. I'm happy with the previous CHUG Warpath. As for the Kingdom one, I think there's still a chance for a certain Decepticon repaint of it. So I'll probably wait and see if something like that happens.
It's amusing watching people say they don't want plex reissued because it will stabilize/depreciate his current market value
