Oddities & Commodities: Transformers Metrotitan

Well I was supposed to be saving money for BotCon… the key phrase being “supposed to be”. There are a few figures that I am always on the look out for, and Metrotitan is right at the top of that list. Unfortunately complete Metrotitans are pretty close to being something of a “myth” in the United States; they do exist, but aside from that absurdly over-priced one that’s always on eBay, they very rarely come up for sale (unless I’m broke).

Released in 1989 as part of the Japanese Victory…

One of the figures that I was recently able to acquire though selling off my Seeker collection, this guy has been on my “wants list” for quite some time. Released in 1989 as part of the Japanese Victory portion of the Generation 1 toy…
