    I got my City Commander today and I noticed right away that Seibertron.com missed a few things. See my mini review: Classics Ultra Magnus Trailer/Armor | Toy Retard

    1. Rotating license plate.
    2. Correct BFG transformation and use.
    3. Trailer Mode (sort of made this one up)
    4. Matrix chest. (dont have New Year prime so no matrix)
    5. Backpack storage of BFG

    Thanks for the info. Totally missed these small little idiosyncrasies but they certainly do add up. I would have never imagined them putting in a swiveling license plate. You certainly can tell the people in Fanproject love their job!

    The rotating license plate and Rocket Launcher/Cannon mode have been talked about in the other City Commander threads here. :)  The trailer mode looks cool though!

    The license plate thing is there so you don't have to see the plate in robot mode. At first I thought it was a James Bond type thing where it changes (which I guess you can do). I will say that he's a lot more complex than I was expecting. Definitely nifty.

    Just a stab in the dark here but I would guess the matrix fan's projects are putting out would be the one that fit in there, it would be the logical thing to do.

    i can say that at least on mine there is not room enough for a matrix. Also, has anyone else had problems with the hole on the back of the left shoulder piece? the windvane gun doesn't fit in there since the hole is too big. my gun just falls out. Other than that he's pretty frickin cool.

    Be careful, but use a LITTLE more force on the windvane gun, it's actually a bit tight, making it not go in far enough to hold without a little force behind it. mine has the same issue.
