    Henkei Prime is to awesome to have hidden in all that armor

    DIA Commander is so ugly, IMHO. The colorscheme looks really bad like those cheapy robots for sale at Big Lots or the dollar store.

    Shadow & City Commanders look really good.

    WHAT!!!!!!!

    LOL, we really have to be complete opposites because Shadow/CC look like ass to me:lol . I'm just not a fan of the Ultra Magnus Color scheme. Now the Diaclone colors

    I like them all, but I think the best is the TFCon 09 colouring, followed by DIA commander, then city commander, then shadow

    Shadow has a sword, but no shoulder launchers
    City has shoulder launchers and a magnus gun (standard now, right?)
    DIA has shoulder launchers and chrome
    TFCon 09 has shoulder launchers, energon suitcase and a slightly different deco with no chrome

    i still want a blue diaclone colored classics prime for that armor, it is soooo close to diaclone magnus, but without blue cab it is just isn't right

    I own & prefer city commander because it's a great updated trailer/armor for ultra magnus.

    City is awesome, with TFCon/DIA a close second. Honestly, Shadow is pretty dull to me. I think it's just a general dislike of black repaints, due to Takara's habit of doing them constantly. If you get City Commander, try and make sure you get the newest version. It has the extra holes for the launchers in trailer mode, and the launchers themselves. The original version has neither.

    You can still use that upgrade kit for the original City Commander. The launchers tab on to the trailer instead of plugging into holes, still works great. Wouldn't have had my Ultra Magnus any other way. Also IMO, CIty Commander is the best of all 4. The Diaclone colors are pretty cool, but Magnus officially doesn't look like that. Than again, I guess that's all up to personal preference. :D

    I say get neither. If you have Ultra Magnus, then you should get City Commander. The others are passable. DIA/TFCon Commander trailers should really have a Blue Prime for them. Doesn't suit me right to have it any other way.

    I'd suggest getting the G3 trailer instead.

    this, also diaclone magnus came with either a red or blue cab (in certain areas it was red iirc) so it's close enough. i have all three, and city commander is my favorite, followed by tfcon powered, shadow is somewhere behind

    Actually, we're more alike now as I just purchased a DIA Commander from BBTS on clearance. lol

    This is what I get for browsing BBTS. lol "Looking" always ends up in "buying." A main influence in getting it too, was that I finally got my hands on owning City Commander & Shadow Commander. So why not complete the set with DIA Commander especially for a great deal at clearance?

    Damn it, now I need a Henkei Prime!!

    Just buy Classics Prime and save the money. Like I said earlier, Henkei Prime is to awesome to be hidden away in that armor.

    Doesn't Henkei Prime have the chrome on the grill and bumper though that the Classics doesn't? (I'm more interested in displaying this in truck mode.)

    OH... yeah, get the Henkei, I thought it was going to be displayed in Magnus mode.

    I never Transform mine because removing the leg pieces is scary.
