Toy Fair 2013: Hasbro announces Fall of Cybertron Metroplex

Transformers_FOC_-_Optimus_standing_in_Metroplex_hand_640

Hasbro announced at their Toy Fair 2013 event that they will be making a figure of Fall of Cybertron Mextroplex in scale with Legend Class figures. He will be a new class called a Titan Class figure. Metroplex will be a triple changer standing at 24 inches tall retailing for approximately US$125.

The figure is scheduled to be released in the Fall of 2013. Fairly appropriate. If its not on display this weekend, we are sure to see it in June at Botcon. Pictures will be added to this post if the figure does end up being on display this weekend.

This is enormous news, but its a shame its in scale with Legends Class figures. …Or alternatively, I should say its a shame that no Fall of Cybertron figures were released in the Legends Class, only the Deluxe and Voyager classes. Legends Class figures are mostly Transformer Prime related. Could this mean a small assortment of FoC figures could be making their way out? Unlikely, but it’d be neat nonetheless.

[UPDATE – More info!]
It looks like Metroplex will come with a Legends Scale Scamper. That was the name of the small black car transformer that came with the original Metroplex. Metroplex will have light up eyes, flip down visor, articulated pupils (?) and independent cannons.

[UPDATE 2 – Pictures!]
Ben Yee’s World of Transformers has posted some great photos of Metroplex on Facebook. You can see the full gallery here. I’ve included a few below.

Note the two figures next to the front view for size comparison. It was also revealed that he will come with a sticker sheet so that the paint apps don’t get lost in cost reduction. This figure on display had the sticker sheet already applied.

Update 3! – Here are some official Hasbro photos of all 3 modes!

Welcome to the Powet Top 5, where we explore the top (and bottom) 5 items we think are relevant to any of a variety of topics that span the imagination. Sit back, read, and respond.

Transformers: Fall of Cybertron was released only a couple short weeks ago, but it seems that is all we have been playing. An incredibly fun and varied game, it includes some new playable characters that we had not seen before in the game’s predecessor, Transformers: War for Cybertron. Some of the new characters included fan-favorites like Jazz, Cliffjumper, the Combaticons and the Dinobots. This list offers a look at what could have been, what is missing and what is still yet to come in terms of characters appearing in the game.

Powetcast 134: Jay Oh

OK, yes, Fall Of Cybertron talk did finally happen in this episode. But thats only a fraction of our insulting, offensive, and divisive conversation! We’ll talk celebrity sex tapes, Chuck Norris and Hank Williams Jr talking trash, and pay tribute to Michael Clarke Duncan.

I didn’t cut out the strip club story this week.

Finally, there is a Marvel Universe MMO and we talked about that for like 5 minutes.

Grimlock smashes in new ‘Fall of Cybertron’ images, video


For months now we’ve been teased with the inclusion of the famed Dinobots in the next Transformers game, Fall of Cybertron.

Now we really get to see Grimlock in action. We have 4 high resolution stills of Grimlock from the game. That’s not enough? OK, here is two and a half minutes of footage with narration from High Moon Studios Matt Tieger.


We see Grimlock performing very differently from other characters in the game. He is all close combat, using an energon shield and sword, swiping at Insecticons that threaten him 3 or 4 at a time. When he’s taken (or dished out) enough abuse, he hulks out and becomes a T Rex and has a move set that includes swping with his tail, stomping the ground and biting enemies in half. Keep an eye out for another Dinobot at the end of the video as well.
