    The coolest toy in 2008 should be the Fansproject City Commander and Shadow Commander. As upgrades kits for Classic Ultra Magus and Universe Nemesis Prime, both of them looked outstanding. But problems leave. City Commander has a face exactly the same as a Sphinx. Many people were trying to replace it with a more handsome face. When I was repainting my master Starscream into Sunstorm I found his face is just what I want. What's more, the shoulder Guns are missing from the kits. So I stick 2 sets of rocket pack from Toynami VF-1Js onto Shadow Commander's shoulder, and they fit just well. But for Ultra Magnus, I'm still waiting for a better idea to fix the shoulder Guns.

    Yes. Each MP Starscream has 2 faces and losing one of them is acceptible for me.

    huh, I tried that but it didnt work. So i broke the two halves apart and recasted them. Then i put the faces back together again and it looks like the face transplant never happened.

    Thanks for the idea. great job.
