    Hey what's going I just purchased the city commander face plate gun and rocket launchers kit along with a dia convoy armour and I was wondering how exactly the plate switching thing works because I don't want to try it and ruin my UM armour and if this is a replay I'm sorry if someone could redirect me to where it's is that would be wicked thanks guys

    Holy run-on sentence, Batman!

    Anyway! Firstly, you have to pull the head off the toy. It comes right off as the ball joint is connected to the neck via a post. The faceplates just plug into the helmet via a tab that inserts into a slot under the brow of the helmet. You pull down on it and it slides out. I have the first version of City Commander and it was a pain in the butt to get it out the first time. But every time subsequently it became easier to swap out the face. As DIA Commander was released later on after the faceplate swapping became a major feature, I'd imagine it'd be easier to swap out the faces anyway.

    I like the face plate myself.

    yeah... that's why i haven't picked up that armor... i'd much rather have a new set of armor that's actually for Prime... but i don't know if that'll happen...

    Nah, don't be too hard on yourself. Powered Convoy is a tad on the obscure side, so it's an honest mistake. I just happen to have an odd affinity for PC and the color scheme :)  I was trying to have some fun with ya while pointing it out though :) 

    Agreed. :)  PM Prime armor needs to be made [affordable] for us!

    I actually have a design in my head to make a PM trailer for Classics Prime, but I'm new to the 3D CAD software scene and am working on something else. I've got a lot to learn before I can ever tackle a project like that.

    Punctuation could become a great friend to you, :lol  :wink: 

    As for "bustin' your chops"? Nah, more like :poke 

    :) 

    I must say that I absolutely LOVE my Powered Commander set (TFCon set) :) 

    I'd love to someday own an authentic version of the Diaclone/G1 Powered Convoy. If not, I'm all geared up to make my own custom of one :) 

    I've been following along with this thread myself: http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/radic...r-armor-yourreflection-tgping-production.html

    My design would not requite Prime to be in robot mode. More like G1 in the way the whole truck cab just goes into the chest of the trailer bot.
