Metroplex aims to at least attempt to look like a city or part of a city, with his upper level boasting three building-like towers, an oddly shaped red fourth tower, a helipad and a small garage, and his lower level consisting of four "repair bays" in which small Autobot cars can fit.
In this mode, Metroplex sports two large red missile launchers/rifles in front (sorry, they don't actually launch), two fl rifles on the sides, and a twin cannon pointing straight up from the rear of the unit.
