Re: Generations Titan Class Metroplex Released at Canadian Retail

If I cancel my Metroplex preorder on TRU, I'll have to pay more for shipping on my MP Soundwave and I have pay more for shipping if I order Metroplex from BBTS and possibly have to pay handling charges and taxes... ugh... is it worth it? Is it too unrealistic to hope that you can enable all the phrases by reconfiguring a jumper on the sound board?

Re: Generations Titan Class Metroplex Released at Canadian Retail

honestly, the sounds ARE better for us release, but it's not sometime to go crazy over. if you can get your hands on it, then go for it, but if you're losing money and it becomes such a big hassle its probably not even worth it. how often are you going to be pressing that button for sounds anyways? you'd probably get bored after a few times.

There was a similar issue a few years ago when Hasbro released the Star Wars "Big AT-AT" - the Canadian mass retail version had no voice clips, just sound effects. There was some speculation on if the sound board could be altered to "free up" the voices, but I don't remember what the outcome of that was. At least with that toy, I think the TRU exclusive vintage-boxed version had the US sound chip.

This. I'll probably push the buttons once, then it'll sit on a shelf forever. If I can find the US version for a comparable price, great, but I'm not gonna lose any sleep over it if I get the Cdn one.

Re: Generations Titan Class Metroplex Released at Canadian Retail

I'm just sticking my Metroplex on a display. Dusting him every week or two 8P I don't see the need to use up two double A's.

Re: Generations Titan Class Metroplex Released at Canadian Retail

People have been wanting a Metroplex ever since the classics line started. We finally get one but apparently it is rotten and unwanted because it doesn't talk, just appreciate we even got this plastic behemoth and hope Hasbro creates Trypticon.

Re: Generations Titan Class Metroplex Released at Canadian Retail

I really don't care about the sounds. I just want the white behemoth to pose and fool around with. Can't wait to get my hands on him. And for $106 + tax, shipped, (or whatever exactly it was) I can do without a catch phrase!

Re: Generations Titan Class Metroplex Released at Canadian Retail

Look on the bright side. If you're looking to make a Metrotitan custom, Canadian Metroplex would be perfect because he won't be calling himself Metroplex when you press the button.

How do you know if you have the US or Canadian one without taking it out if the box? Got mine on amazon.ca

Thx
