    Can someone please explain what's going on here, in terms of the City Commander armor?

    10?4????? (??) - TF???? - HK-TF ???? - Powered by Discuz!

    Over at HK-Tf, it looks like they had a playdate, with the original Ultra Magnus flavor, as well as Powered Convoy Crunch and Nemesis Ripple.

    Are these just more "Not for sale prototypes"? or are these a hint of additional colored releases in the future? I don't read Chinese so I don't know...

    Anyone?

    Originally they were just for fun protopaints to show it off in fan favorite styles.

    But the demand is growing so much on them as of late, they may indeed eventually be coming.

    No Shattered Glass armor? :p 

    The Nemesis suit looks pretty cool, as does Powered, though personally I could really go for a version of Powered with a different head (like say the Armada supermode head) as a true powered up Optimus Prime armor.

    Well the Dark Armour could work as Shattered Glass Ultra Magnus.

    IMHO Prime could go for a Powermaster-esque upgrade armour..

    I'd buy that

    The only way I'd get Powered Convoy, is if it came with the figure inside. The armor colors are fugly, but I'd love a blue Prime... :D

    Those other two are cool, but if they did get made I'm not sure I'd buy them.

    The Powered Convoy armor is cool in it's own right, but I'm not sure I'd want to display my Henkei Convoy with the armor on him and than it's just a waste you know, because he'd look like Magnus recolored and what than is the point of Magnus having the armor? Isn't that what we're trying to get away from?

    The Nemesis armor looks cool I guess, but it just doesn't do anything for me for some reason.

    One of the cool things about the armor set was that it was to upgrade Ultra Magnus into what he's supposed to be. Any more armors made now using the same design will kinda cheapen the thing now, ah well.

    Hmm, I'd consider buying the black one. Didn't like the Magnus one though.

    Ironic turnabout. All these years, Magnus has been 'just another Prime redeco'; Suddenly Prime's upgrade is a redeco of Magnus... :D 

    So are the redeco versions actually on the cards, or is that just projected wishful thinking? I thought those versions were literally for the yuks, one-offs to see what they'd look like.

    Wishful thinking for now. No plans as of yet that I'm aware, but if the demand keeps growing that can always change so long as the mold is still intact. Though those will probably be lower numbered runs.

    Needs moar "OMG THIS SUXXORS! Why has a toy company forsaken MEEEEEEeeeeeee*"


    The Powered Convoy we're seen before as a one-off, the Nemesis is new, and looks pretty spiffy. I'd still love to see a more grey, G1-esque trailer for Prime though.

    :lol 

    Yeah, it would be pretty ironic indeed. The concept is cool, but unless they included (or Hasbro made) a blue Prime I'm not sure I'd be interested. Now, if they were to do a new head (oh, say something ala PM Prime's super mode head or Armada's super mode head...) than I might bite also.

    Looking at Nemesis again... I might consider picking that up just for the novelty of a Nemesis actually having an armored upgrade. Especially if they were to add a sword to it or something.
