    I don't know if this question has been discussed before, and pardon me for beating a dead horse..but...Is the City Commander set ever going to see another production?

    I missed the first wave, and I have yet to see Robot Kingdom or BBTS have any restocks of this item. I know that the Shadow Commander set is out. Does anyone know if the City Commander version will see another production, or if any online stores are going to get more shipments?

    It's hard to say. It's more likely than not that it will not be re-released. However, FansProject did say that the Powered Commander armor would never see mass-production, and it's being released as a limited convention special.

    If I were you, I'd go ahead and grab a Shadow Commander. It's got a few minor improvments to the mold, and looks just as good, albiet not as iconic as Ultra Magnus. Otherwise, your only options are to see if you can snag a City Commander in the sales forum, or at the eye-gouging prices on ebay.

    City commander has it pros. Shadow Commander has some loose issues with some parts compared to City Commander. The fact that City Commander does not have screws is a nice little feature I appreciate. To make assembly easier and probably cheaper, Shadow commander has screw holes and screws.

    Unless a news item pops up on here or another site, or from Fansproject themselves, indicating City Commander will see a second run, I'd just assume it's gone and bite the bullet and pick one up off from Junkion. Or scour eBay and hope you get lucky on one that isn't ridiculously overpriced on shipping.

    To my knowledge, we've never seen a rerelease of the Cliffjumper set either, so it looks like once it's gone, it's gone.

    I know, it's unfortunate. I'm glad I got mine when I had the chance last year. It's wonderful.

    I dont know much about Moulding sets but they have used it quit a few times now and it may be starting to degrade. Your best bet is the Junkion of Evilbay I would guess.

    This is exactly why I don't think there will be another run of City Commander.

    I was one of the lucky ones to get the Cliffjumper set for a very good price when it was first released.

    Just go to the junkion threads and ber persistant. 3 or 4 of them have been sold in the sales threads over the past week alone ( One of which was bought by me :)  thanks again Blackstar )
    You've simply got to be vigilant.

    I'd be surprised if it doesn't come back round again... although there's the possibility that when it does, it may be retooled, or show some mold degradation in some way.

    I would say there is a chance as the mold must still be good if there making recolors? I think they would just change something a little.

    What would be considered a non-ass-raping price?

    I'm lookin' to sell one and have been debating what to sell it for... I'd like to make a little off of it, but I'm surely not looking to screw any fellow board members.
