The lights are on
Transformers: Fall of Cybertron released last year, and the
game was filled with fantastic depictions of the Autobots and Decepticons. In
fact, those versions of the characters looked so cool that Hasbro has continued
to release new Transformers figures inspired by the game.
The upcoming Metroplex figure draws inspiration both from
the character's appearance in Fall of Cybertron, as well as his original 1986
toy. When in robot form, the over two-foot final figure is the tallest Transformers
toy ever released, inching out the mammoth 1987 Fortress Maximus. Metroplex can
turn into a wheeled aircraft carrier style vehicle, as well as a city mode to
serve as home to smaller toys. However, the towering robot mode is certainly
the most exciting.
A version of the new figure released at this year's San
Diego Comic Con, but the wider public will have a chance to snatch him up
beginning in August.
All in the name of good fun, we've put together footage of
Metroplex from Fall of Cybertron, and combined it with a time-lapse look at the
new figure being transformed. Enjoy!
