A late arrival to the SDCC 2013 exclusive list for Hasbro has been revealed and it's big. Really, really big! Even bigger than Fortress Maximus!

Transformers fans can rejoice now that a 2-foot Metroplex figure will be available in limited quantities at Comic-Con! However, it needs to be noted, there will be a similar-sized retail store version available at some point this holiday season. So if you can't get your hands on the SDCC exclusive one, you'll have another chance to land this giant Autobot.

The Transformers website Seibertron.com received the SDCC exclusive early from Hasbro to preview it, and here are the details of this giant-sized Transformer followed by some images of it too.

"Includes: METROPLEX figure, Scamper figure, 2 blasters, 2 projectiles, 12 non-converting mini-figures (Hoist robot, Hoist vehicle, Trailbreaker robot, Trailbreaker vehicle, Orion Pax robot, Orion Pax vehicle, Megatron robot, Megatron vehicle, Bumblebee robot, Bumblebee vehicle, Thundercracker robot, and Thundercracker vehicle)

Approximate retail price: $149.99"














And this final photo compares the retail store version (out of its box) to the SDCC exclusive.




For centuries, METROPLEX slumbered, his form melded into the avenues of the great metropolis Iacon. His arsenal, hidden and dormant, lurked behind sealed hatches, the citizens of the vast city never suspecting the devastating power that slept beneath their feet. And yet METROPLEX listened, sensors open across the acres of his body, waiting for the call that would awaken him. Waiting for the order that would summon him forth to battle. Waiting for the last of the Primes.

War raged. Weapons of incredible power cratered and scarred the city around him. Thousands of Cybertronians lay shattered and deactivated in his streets. And still he waited, his Spark yearning for the call that would bring him to the defense of the defenseless millions who still called him home.

Finally, the last Prime came, and METROPLEX awakened. His shadow fell across the burning towers of Iacon. His weaponry revealed and unleashed apocalyptic vengeance on those who had assaulted his city. The DECEPTlCON® horde broke and fled before him. For the call of the Prime had been heard, and the last of the great Titans of CYBERTRON went to war.

How much money does one to leave comic-con with a nice stash of collectibles and comics?

i hope the movie versions of the transformers look more like the toys & the animated tv shows this time round.
DiLusso - 7/14/2013, 2:32 PM

Oh.... oh if only....

I think they sold something like this at Botcon this year.
PersonOfNoInterest - 7/14/2013, 2:50 PM
Meh.... it should be bigger. When I was a kid, I had the other one, Fortress Maximus and he was supposed to be a whole city, but he was only 2 ft tall. He should have been at least 4 ft tall to even be close to accurate.
dkhager - 7/14/2013, 2:57 PM
ill try to get one retail but we'll see
Philvis - 7/14/2013, 3:06 PM
I had the original one back in the day and was the envy of all my friends. Oh the toys the kids have nowadays!
RetroNinja - 7/14/2013, 3:36 PM
Do I get to smash megatron with a fist again?
YoungThanos - 7/14/2013, 3:48 PM
I'm a TF collector so best believe I'll be getting this guy. Just not the Comic Con version. I'll wait for the retail one which is like 100 bucks cheaper and doesn't look that much different.

YoungThanos - 7/14/2013, 3:54 PM
@sKeemAn, yes it's a triple changer like it's predecessor.

But I don't know how to post images on this site so just go to Seibertron.com or www.tfw2005.com for more pictures.

THERE IS A GOD!!!!!!!
neonrehan - 7/14/2013, 4:31 PM
Thats really awesome but 4' would have been even better...then you could actually store the Generation 2 figures into his garages when in defense mode.

Just saaaayin.
HOTSHOT - 7/14/2013, 5:26 PM
Michel Bay should take a lesson about bot designs from this. No gold tooths or robo testies here.
Macksimus - 7/14/2013, 5:52 PM
Why aren't there transformers toys like that on the shelves at stores???

YoungThanos - 7/14/2013, 7:46 PM
Yes it transforms...
xStarLordx - 7/14/2013, 8:05 PM
I swear one year I am going to Comic-con.
JettJagguarrr - 7/14/2013, 8:45 PM
That Shhhit is Niiiiice!
Luminus - 7/14/2013, 8:47 PM
So when do we get a Unicron figure that's 2 stories high?
nowtheresaBATman - 7/14/2013, 9:51 PM
2nd only to Jetfire as my favorite Transformers toy.

@Philvis

loki668 - 7/14/2013, 10:51 PM
When Metroplex transforms, all of his toll-booth arms point, suggestively, to his crotch.
TelaVizion - 7/15/2013, 2:29 AM
