    that looks great man, battle damage or just plain better paint apps on this armor is always fun. im glad I got my City Commander for a cool 100 about a year or two ago.but if you put articulated hands and lights on this one I will totally trade you. id rather have one with a paint job this nice I wasn't afraid to mess with.

    Love it so far. How well does the armor fit, as I brought a shadow commander KO and the only way it would stay on was with bluetac.

    Dude! This paintjob is superb. Pretty much better than the original City Commander.
    All those little details, holes and scratches, combined with the awesome shading?
    It's so amazing!
