Product Review – The Fall of Cybertron Metroplex Transformer

The Transformers series, which is about a                                                   BeFunky_download (3).png
race of sentient machines that are able to
transform into the shape of any vehicle they
scan of comparable size and mass, has been
one of the most popular sci-fi series of the
last nearly-30 years. The series has spawned
numerous cartoon shows, movies, video games,
toys, and more. The Fall of Cybertron Metroplex
Transformer is the largest of all Transformers
in the entire series and has repeatedly been
voted by fans as one of the coolest of the entire
cast, and in honor of the series’ 30 year anniversary,
Hasbro is releasing Metroplex in grand fashion.

Let’s take a look at some of the features

Set to be released in August of 2013, Metroplex will be the most complex and largest Transformer toy ever released. He will stand at exactly 24 inches tall and will include a Scamper legend scale figure. Metroplex will have 3 modes he can transform into: carrier, robot, and city, and he will have complete interactivity. His eyes will light up; he has independent weapon turrets and a functional helmet; he will talk and make various sounds; and much more.

How Much?

Metroplex will retail for $125.

Things We Like About Metroplex

The Metroplex Transformer is one of the most beloved characters in the series, and Hasbro has taken that love to heart. The sheer level of complexity and interactivity is staggering, and kids and adults alike will spend hours with him. His ability to fully transform into the carrier, city, and robot – all three vastly different results – is especially impressive (though, no doubt, his size helps with that considerably).

Things We Did Not Like About Metroplex

Really, what’s not to like? The only possible issue might be that Metroplex is cost-prohibitive. At $125, he isn’t a small investment, though it won’t cause fans to pause at all. He is also not appropriate for younger children, however much they might love him.

Who Would Buy Metroplex?

Transformers fans and robot lovers, in general, will flock to buy Metroplex. He is big and expensive enough, impulse purchases will be rare. Collectors will also grab him as quickly as they can to add the newest and certainly most impressive member of the Transformers cast to their set.


Metroplex will have the same comprehensive warranty against defects and other issues that all Hasbro products carry.

Is Metroplex Worth the Money?

At $125, this addition to the Transformers series of toys isn’t cheap. However, considering the complexity Hasbro has managed to include, it’s surprising they’re managing to sell it that cheap!

Where Can I Buy Metroplex?

Generally speaking, all major retailers that sell Transformers merchandise should sell Metroplex, including online retailers such as Amazon. He will also be available from smaller, toy-specific websites.
