Each issue comes with a Mega Gogo based on a Series 1 Gogo, and a Pod. Inside the Mega Gogo is a Mini Gogo, which is based on Evolution Gogo's. For every Mega Gogo, they have interchangeable heads to mix up with others. Because some characters had different sculptures regarding the head placement, some Mega Gogo's were changed, such as Evi's arms being down whereas his arms were up in the first place.
About the Gogo
In every issue, there is info about the main Mega Gogo, the Series 1 Gogo and it's Evolution counterpart. There is also a Gag Comic about the Gogo, as well as suggestions on creating a new character by swapping two Mega Gogo's heads/bodies to give readers inspiration. It also included either a pod build to inspire readers, or Gogo Greats, which related the Mega Gogo with other characters.
There is a four page comic about the Gogo and their personality trait. They are usually drawn by three different artists. The first five comics were drawn by Jack Lawrence, and one comic was drawn by an unidentified artist for Jelly's issue.

In every issue, a game could be played using your collection of Gogos. Some games involved you using pods, others used Mega and Mini Gogos together. http://crazybonespedia.wikia.com/wiki/Game

See Fusion for moreFusion is an alternate series of Mega Metropolis. It has only been released in the Philippines. The Fusion Series only has 40 of the 160 Mega and Mini Gogo's and it doesn't have the Pods. They also have Buddies (Mega) and Kiddies (Mini) packs.
- The comics were drawn with five different artists. The first five issues were drawn by Jack Lawrence, the three other artists who did issues 6-80 (with the exception of 10) were done by Anthony Williams, Kev Hopgood and Nigel Dobbyn. Issue 10 was drawn by Ellen Lindner, making her the only artist to do one issue.
- The magazine's last issue was made in July 2011.
- This is the only series when it was possible to obtain all the Series 1 characters in mega form.
- Because the series involved the Gogo's swapping their heads, some of the characters were redesigned. Examples include Sago having his arms on his sides rather than on his head, and how Ecto obtaining a large bigger than his body.
- There is some merchandise when you order various times:
- First, there is a pencil case with Angiru and Neko on one side, Umu and Jelly on the other, and Mosh's face appears on the zip.
- Then, there's a carrier case for your Mini Gogo's.
- Next, there's a backpack with Sato, Umu and Angiru on the front.
- Finally, there's a digital watch with Hiro on the cover.
- Even when the magazine mainly focused on the Series 1 and Evolution Gogo's, some Explorer gogo's can be seen in earlier issues.
- When first released, there was a free flyer that came with Issue 1, along with a poster drawn by Jack Lawrence.
- While Issue 1 had a poster of the series 1 characters, Issue 3 had a poster including Evolution characters, and doubled as a poster featuring Sato.
- Moshi Monsters Micro Moshi Mega Heads are a very similar product that most likely took inspiration from Mega Metropolis.
- Like Evolution, 40 characters were transparent while the other 40 were normal. However, many Mini Gogo's had their finishes swapped, such as Moshi obtaining a solid finish rather than transparency.
- In the United Kingdom, the first issue was 99p, the rest were £3.99 each week.
- On the back of the earlier issues, you could see a red coloured Mosh. This was an unreleased character, implying that Series 1 Gogo's were going to appear alongside Evolution in Mini form.
