Transformers Generations Titan Class Metroplex (Retail)

I am not going to rehash my feelings on this toy.  Please read my full review of the SDCC 2013 Metroplex.

There is really very little difference between the retail version of Metroplex and the SDCC version.  The retail one comes without the decoys, with only one gun, with non-metallic stickers, and unchromed face and hips.

The decoys are not a huge loss, but the gun is, at least in robot mode.  He looks much better with the dual guns and is more accurate to the original toy.  Unfortunately, as there is no place for the second gun in his alternate modes, it may not be such a bad thing to only have one.

As you can see from the picture, the non-metallic stickers are brighter and stand out better, so I’m really not sure it loses anything.

As to the chrome, I’m not so sure the chromed face is a big deal.  After all, as you can see, it’s hard to even see the details of his face past the shine.  His hips are another matter.  The retail version’s white hips make him look way too plain.  They should have at least painted them with silver or even white paint, just something to break up the all the white plastic.

Thanks for reading!
