Classics Rodimus wearing the 3rd party Fansproject Warbot Protector armor, designed to upgrade him to Rodimus Prime. The armor combines with the gun station to his left to become a trailer to give him the classic "flaming Winnebago" altmode. To his right is Combiner Wars Rodimus, holding "Blesser", a Targetmaster designed to go with Protector. This particular version is an exclusive, offered to those who donated to hurricane relief a few years back.

Protector/Rodimus Prime manning his gun platform. There's also a seat for the targetmaster to operate it.

Generations Metroplex, holding a N scale SEPTA trolley. His hands are 3rd party 3D printed replacements, which not only have improved articulation over the stock ones, but also transform.

Nice. I have an original, complete with "drunken lurching" functionality intact (can't really call it walking :laugh: ). All he needs is some Reprolabels to spruce him up. There's a nice upgrade set, similar to the one for G1 Metroplex you can see in some of the Autobot City shots.

the war for cybertron trypticon is a much better model.  I wouldn't mind seeing that come out.

 

I did like the g1 model, I also liked the g1 omega supreme.

Ginrai in truck mode.

Can you please post a pic of that black truck without that red truck? I was wondering what that black one looks like with the rest of its body.

Great pics in this thread, BTW.

Mind me asking where did you get the hands? I have the same unit, and the hands are indeed a bit "stiff".

I ordered them from a guy with the handle MegaMoonMan on the TFW2005 forums. Your best bet is to create an account on that site and send him a personal message.

He 3D prints upgrades and replacement parts for a variety of figures. For Metroplex he also made ramp extensions (so the ramp actually reaches the ground!) and replacement knee joints to improve the city mode. Basically, the add-ons make Generations Metroplex more like the G1 toy. The parts have a slightly rough texture to them due to the printing process and his equipment, but they're durable and look great. I had some difficulty getting the new hands on, though!

Yup, that's the one - just your standard Topkick with BFG mounted to the roof. :woot:

Well, ship it to me!

Yeah that's the down-side of the more affordable 3D printers. The "fill-in" value is what reduces it but takes drastically longer to complete the print (not to mention also possibly clogging the filiment delivery nozzle). With yours though, the process has left a textured affect that I would be more than happy with as it seems to fit very well with the overall design.

The texture on the hands actually helps Metroplex grip things - that trolley was secure in his grasp.

G1 "KMart Legends" Bumblebee. Larger and a bit more advanced transformation than the original Microman-based figure. A pity he has Cliffjumper's head rather than his own. Payback for all of the "Cliffjumpers" which are actually red Bumblebees we get nowadays, I guess.

Beetle mode. More realistic proportions than the original, since this one wasn't modeled after a Penny Racer. The headlights are hand-painted, as is the bumper (which needs touching up.)
