    Damn, with all the Titan Class bots coming down the pipeline, I might just have to quit the MP game and stick with generations/Legends

    It seems like a hella weird way for TT to tease something like that, I'm pretty sure it's just a guy who has a custom.

    Yes, I agree - if it were genuine we'd have seen this heavily hyped.

    Yeah, that looks like a custom. I hope if we were actually to get a redeco of Metroplex, we'd get Metrotitan.

    Would help if people posting photos credited their sources (referring to the FB group where this was posted)

    I'm currently trying to see if it's a custom but it could be for their diaclone reboot line perhaps?

    Hopefully we will get a Metrotitan out of the Metroplex mold.

    If it's a custom it's damn good look at that subdued chrome.

    Edit I hope it's a custom....because I'd buy that, and I don't buy big things.

    I'm fairly certain its a custom, especially given it just sort of turned up in someone's Fort Max pictures

    May have just been the only Metroplex they had on hand

    I can't understand why we haven't received a Metrotitan yet; he was in both MTMTE and RID, so people knew about him. Plus, Takara love doing repaints/remolds of obscure characters! I just dont understand *shakes head in bewilderment*

    if its real & a Diaclone Fortress-X stand in, will it have parts that allow it to interact with the Diabattles V2 & its Dianaut pilots such as metal or magnetic parts?

    While I think it would be cool, I'm pretty sure it's just a custom. If we were getting Metroplex and FM repaints, I'd want Metrotitan and Brave Max respectively.

    I always thought it would have been nice if Takara had done a Dark Meglo Convoy in the Galaxy Force Line partly to complement what they did do and partly just as I like Black repaints - as they didn't "This will do very nicely" (if it's legit).

    So long as the price isn't much higher than Fort Max's Japanese Price.
