    he doesnt look like the G1 or G2 series from what i recognize.

    he might be from the transformers energon or other CG series.
    the cellphone pic is fine, but what we do need is his transformation

    At least some other views, if you can't work the transformation.

    I have no idea how to transform him; looks like he turns into a tank or some sort of crane (he's got a detachable weapon that looks like it turns into some sort of scoop)?

    Here's a few more pics (including the detachable part):

    It's Metroplex, from the Transformers Cybertron toyline. He first came out about this time two years ago, I believe.

    EDIT: Unfortunately, it appears that his instructions are not in Hasbro's instructions archive on their website. I could ask on another board if someone could scan the instructions for you, if you like.

    In the mean time, Seibertron's photo gallery should be able to give you a pretty good idea of the alternate mode.

    You're welcome. It was the least I could do, what with my vast Transformers knowledge.

    Some sort of cybertronian bulldozer:

    G1 Metroplex was shorter than that one, IIRC. By a lot.

    A (very) stylized version of a bucket wheel excavator.

    Why the hell is he called Metroplex if he doesn't turn into a city/base thing?
