Great Transformer. Thankfully not for kids. 12 Aug 2013
By indecks - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase Durability:    Educational:    Fun:   
Metroplex, the one Transformer that I always wanted as a kid, but was never able to afford. My mom refused to spend $50 on a 'robot toy that turned into a city' (visions of that scene from BIG: Who wants to play with a BUILDING?")

This 'Plex is much more than the original, though. Bigger, more complex, more detailed, heavier, and more badass-er. He's clearly based on the design from the Transformers: Fall/War of Cybertron videogames which is not a bad thing. It even sports a button (in front of the head) that speaks a few lines from the game. 2X AA batteries aren't included in the packaging, but that's not really a big deal. The box is rather large, but he's not packaged with any padding like most TFormers are. It doesn't contain any blister packaging, or foam like back in the 80s. He's tied to a cardboard backing with those annoying little paper twist-ties that have plagued Transformers buyers for the last few years. He's also packaged with his right arm disconnected, and tied to the inside box so he can fit in a smaller box.

As far as transforming is concerned, he's not really all that difficult. He's a triple-changer, turning from bot to city play set to vehicle mode, but there isn't really much more involved than moving an arm, or twisting his legs backwards to get into different modes. But honestly, that's not the appeal of Metroplex. His appeal is the sheer size, heft, and his ability to stand on his own. He's really more of a display piece. I don't think a kid would get much enjoyment out of him because he's so large. But for guys like myself that grew up on Transformers and loved Metroplex in the show, it's a worthy buy. As of today 8/12/13, he's priced at $124 on Amazon. I was lucky and got the pre-order before his release date so I only paid $115

If you plan on taking this guy out of the box (which you SHOULD - toys are meant to be played with AND displayed) and applying the decals - be prepared for quite a job. It took me a couple of hours to carefully place all the decals, and figure out exactly where some of them belonged. The decal instruction sheet isn't that helpful with the City/Vehicle mode decal applications.

He also includes two guns that attach to his shoulders, as well as a massive cannon that he can hold in his hands. Also included is a single tiny missile for his main (red) gun. It's easy to misplace, and I think I already did.

All in all this is a worthy buy. But don't buy this for your 8 year old kid that won't appreciate who and what Metroplex is.

The Biggest Tranformer Ever is More Than Worth the Price 13 Sep 2013
By Mysterio - Published on Amazon.com
Durability:    Educational:    Fun:   
Metroplex was one of the Biggest G1 transformers. In the G1 cartoon he was maybe the second biggest while the actual toy was slightly smaller than Omega Supreme. While the G1 figure's base mode was undersized, his function as a base was not underrated. Metroplex worked perfectly as "Scramble City" as he had features to connect and dock with the different combiner teams.

This Hasbro Titan Class Metroplex easily solves the size problem. At over 24" tall, it is the biggest transformer ever - even a few inches taller than the former size-king Fortress Maximus.

Let me say this as a footnote, Generations Metroplex is marketed as the Fall of Cybertron Metroplex, which he is not. It is direct generations update to G1 Metroplex and all of his transformations mirror the original G1 toy. It is true that his voice and some of his phrases are lifted from FoC, which is good. Just don't expect the more rounded look or transformation of the videogame version.

I'll break Metroplex down by commenting on his three different modes.

Robot Mode
This is the Metroplex you always wanted.
- He is huge(over 24"),well proportioned with a more athletic build than his G1 counterpart.
- Is incredibly posable when compared to even the best transformers figures.
- Metroplex as a robot has a number of interesting gimmicks. His shoulder and right forearm both open to a gun placements that his companion Scamper (or other Generations Legends figures) can sit in and man. He can also (via button press) light up his face and chest, make transformation noises and say a few phrases lifted from the FoC videogame.
- His posable fingers can grasp so he can actually hold his guns in a realistic manner.
- Includes three different versatile guns.
- You can toggle between his head to include sunglasses or open faced.
Rating - A+

Vehicle Mode
The Vehicle mode is impressive and pulls off a land version of an aircraft carrier. A better vehicle than the G1's vehicle mode.
- It's HUGE
- Has an space with a foldout crane for a repair area for other transformers.
- Metroplex's Head turns into a turret which can be manned by scamper and other generations legends figures.
- It rolls well
Rating - A

Base Mode
Metroplex's base mode is almost a direct recreation of the g1 base mode.
- It's basically a much LARGER version of the G1 base mode - slightly disappointing.
- Ramp from his chest garage is too short and only reaches down into part of his base mode.
- A positive about this base mode is that its HUGE, so it works better with transformer figures.
- Different bays are very detailed, especially with sticker applications.
- Fortress Maximus maybe be slightly smaller, but he still has a better base mode.
Rating - B-

Scamper
Is a great improvement over the orignal who he is roughly the same size as. He is sized perfectly and has the same articulation as the Transformers Generations Legends figures - a new line with only two autobot (Prime and Bumblebee) figures at this time. Unfortunatley, neither Six-Gun or Slammer made the update.

Overall
Metroplex is an impressive figure and is certainly worth his current price point. His 24" height is basically the sweetspot for a transformer as you don't really want or have space for something bigger. His size works well with FoC figures, G1 figures but was designed to fit perfectly with the new Transformers Generations Legends Figures. The amount of detail is impressive, but be prepared to place close to one hundred stickers.

Collectors and Kids will LOVE this version of Metroplex! Keep in mind that it is HEAVY, so probably not recommended for kids under seven.

Hasbro's Generations Titan Class Metroplex comes HIGHLY Recommended!
Rating - A

***The Takara Version is Superior is a few ways. The takara version has chrome on it's face, legs and fold out shoulder cannon. It also includes an additional big red gun. The Takara version will also set you back an additional $100, so it is up to you decide if it's worth it.

Best Toy Ever 17 April 2014
By ShawnS - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Per my son it's the most fantastic toy he's ever owned. He's had it now for almost a year and still plays with it regularly. It was hard giving it to him to play with instead of as a collectible but seeing his imagination go wild when playing with Metroplex is worth it. Some pieces have fallen off or become weak but it gets plenty of use.
