Titan Class Metroplex in City Mode with Deluxe Class Weaponizer Sixgun and Deluxe Class Weaponizer Slammer.
Slammer in tower mode was shown off in a Hasbro livestream but it is not shown in the included instructions, it is more or less his tank mode with the connector for the tank placed on the rear and the front connector piece with is the pelvis in robot mode folded out with the turret placed on top however you can most definitely come up with many different configuration for the tower.

July 19, 2024 - Release Date for Untitled #Transformers Animation film by Paramount Pictures
“Animated Transformers Movie
An untitled animated Transformers movie sets a release date of July 19, 2024. Word of Hasbro developing an animated flick came down in September 2017, with the company hoping to release a new one every year. It was reported that the new movie would take place in the same universe as Michael Bay's series of feature films and could possibly reveal the origins of the Autobots and Decepticons.”

Artist to artist: Alex Milne @markerguru001 pays tribute to the late @DerrickJWyatt
“This is a tribute to my friend Derrick who past away in December. I'm still waiting for the gravity of that to sink in fully. It's getting more real over time. For a while I didn't feel like drawing, but one day I had an idea since Derrick always liked when I did my comic take on Transformers Animated characters.
I wasn't sure if I was going to post this to FB since I posted it to my twitter and instagram, but then I know not everyone follows me on those platforms, and this is something I did to celebrate the life of a super talented friend who has been taken from us too soon.
I have started to ink this piece which I will post when completed, but for now enjoy the pencils.
To Derrick, until we meet again on the other side may you rest well. love you man.”

Titan Class Metroplex with WFC Deluxe Sixgun and Slammer
Metroplex Robot mode combinations
With the release of WFC Kingdom Deluxe Class Weaponizer Slammer, The Metroplex gang is complete, Scamper, Sixgun and Slammer can now join with Metroplex in his robot, vehicle and City modes. The Weaponizers can be attached to Metroplex via the 5mm system, through this method we are able to achieve an unlimited number of different combinations. None of these are official, the instructions do not indicate any specific combine modes with Metroplex and there are no specific spots designated specifically for them to attach into like Fulltilts attachment onto Trypticons chest, that attachment can only work with Fulltilt and not just any figure with a 5mm etc. Considering how far apart each release was from Metroplex, it is not a suprise but nonetheless, there are plenty of 5mm ports to make use of so we are at no loss for options.
These are only a few of the combinations that I was able to come up with, stay tuned for images of vehicle mode and city mode. combinations.
CONFIRMED: #Transformers Comics to no longer be published by IDW Comics by Group Editor at IDW Publishing, Tom Walz
“Yes, it's true -- IDW Publishing will be parting ways with Transformers and G.I. Joe in 2023. Creatively and collaboratively, we'll miss them for sure. Great licenses and so many great people to work with at Hasbro over the years on both properties... not to mention all our wonderful creative teams.
But before you read the inevitable "IDW is dying!" fake news reports and uninformed social media postulations, know this -- we're busier than ever making great comics!
I had no doubt in my mind that I would end up getting this figure when rumors first emerged that a Slammer figure was coming, gladly he is not a Warpath repaint or retool like some fan had speculated. Slammer is the perfect compliment to Generations Metroplex and if you have him than you definitely need Slammer.
Slammers main alt mode comes in the form of a Cybertronian tank and you know what people say about tanks, a tank is a tank and this tank is definitely a tank, by that I mean there's nothing unexpected, it does what a tank does but thats not a bad thing at all, it looks great. The turret can raise and lower and you can turn it on one axis by disconnecting the other attachment point, its attached on two arms.
Transformation is simple, fun and quick, similar to the other weaponizers you should have no difficulty with.
Slammer in robot mode looks great, he looks big, powerful and modular. I'm still amazed at how Hasbro Takara Tomy was able to create a figure that transforms, breaks apart to form weapons and armor yet still maintains an excellent level of articulation. Slammer in particular has an amazing point of articulation at the torso allowing for maximum forward ab crunch in addition to all of the great points of articulation that we've come to expect from WFC such as ankle tilts.
I really love this class of figure, the weaponizers, there are so many different ways that you can configure the robot mode, alt mode, weaponizer mode and you can combine multiples in order to create your own unique combinations.
With Slammer, if im not mistaken that brings the G1 Titan / City Bot companions to a close(not counting the repaints, JG1 etc), we have Cog, Brunt, Sixgun, FastTrack and Slammer, with that era complete, I hope to Primus that this will not be the last we see of Weaponizers. Aside from G1, there are many other characters that can fit the weaponizer theme quite nicely such as Armada Overload, Energon Wingsaber, Cybertron Leobreaker, how cool would it be to have a Generations Leobreaker that could maybe become an arm for an Optimus Prime figure but could also and or become weaponizer lion armor for other figures. Granted, the weaponizers that we do have by intention or by coincidence (alot of coincidence exists in TF figures) do in fact harken back the UT characters. Sixgun for example can be configured into a mode that looks alot like Energon Wing Saber alt mode(pics below) and like Cybertron Leobreaker, Sixgun can become an arm for Optimus ala Savage Claw Mode and Cog can become a back/shoulder mounted cannon pack similar to Armada Overload. The Transformers Universe is full of amazing legacy characters like Armada Overload that would make for great weaponizers.
Check out the images below and let us know what you think of the new WFC Kingdom Deluxe Class Weaponizer Slammer, is he a figure that you would like to add to your collection?
Oh and don't worry, we have some images of Slammer with Metroplex that we will be uploading later so stay tuned for that.
