From the Manufacturer
The most vast and mighty Autobot ever created, Metroplex is a member of a race long thought of as nothing more than legend. He is impossibly ancient, brought online in a time before the long memory of his Autobot comrades even began. He is a living artifact of an era when Cybertron was united and needed defenders only against hostile outsiders. It is his memory of that peaceful past that drives him to fight for the Autobots. It is hope for the return of peace that motivates him to crush every Deception he can see beneath his mighty feet. Get the biggest Autobot ever with this enormous Metroplex figure. This 3-in-1 warrior is over 2 feet tall and he's a whole city of Transformers action. He converts from a robot to vehicle mode, but he also converts to city mode with an arsenal waiting to deploy. Take aim with his missile launcher and fire it with the press of a button. His lights and sounds take the battle to a whole new level. Your Scamper figure has got his back and he converts from robot mode to vehicle mode and back. Have a citywide battle with this enormous Metroplex figure and his Scamper ally.

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.
Here's some advice to maximise your enjoyment of this figure:
1) Firstly, set aside a morning or afternoon to apply the decals. There are many of them, but it is SO worth the effort once applied.
2) Secondly, play or display Metroplex with Generations Legends class figures, such as Transformers Generations Legends Class Bumblebee and Blazemaster Figures, or Transformers Generations Legends Class Optimus Prime and Autobot Roller Figures. You can even display him with your spare Transformers Prime figures if you'd like. These are appropriately scaled, and illustrate just how *huge* Metroplex is. With the voice options, you can even re-enact "Metroplex heeds the call of the Last Prime"
3) Transformation can take some time to learn, especially with such a large figure. Consult youtube videos to see how it works, if you or your child find difficulty with the instructions.
4) Finally, find a large display case, or shelf to give Metroplex pride of place. If you are running tight on space, standing him on the top of
a closet or bookcase will do at a pinch. Once put together, you will not be able to detach some parts and thus he will not fit in the original box.
Don't discard the box though, until you've cut off his tech spec for later. Now you know, and knowing is half the battle! Enjoy!
The transformation is quite lineal no surprises, but the Robot mode is the one I was looking for is great, has a hidden cannon on its left shoulder were you can put Scamper, also his right arm has a hidden section where you can unveil another cannon and also place Scamper there.
Its weapon is massive, and by having on mind the size of this thing, Metroplex is not expensive at all, was my favorite since back in the early 90's now just waiting for a release of Tripticon because now my collection is unbalanced with this big boy crushing all the decepticons :D
My only issue is with the quality control. Such a large, heavy figure needs a lot of structural support. The joints, hips and rotating parts aren't very tight. Standing him in certain poses will more than likely cause the legs to outstretch and the figure to fall.
They need tighter joints and possibly sturdier plastic for this piece, especially for the legs. Some doors and hinges look like they can easily break and it's very easy to put stress marks on them. I don't like this from a $100 toy and a toy of this size. They should have planned for quality and structural integrity a lot better.
But otherwise, it's a worthwhile buy, and like I said, a great update to the classic Metroplex. And without paying the king's ransom that a third party Asian company would make you pay for an update like this. Go get it.
