    I just got this in the mail today so I thought I'd take some pictures. It's a really nice set that completes the set perfectly. My only compliant (a small one)is that the UM rifle limits elbow movement. If this is in the wrong thread then please move it to the correct one.
    Sorry for the blurry pics.

    I can't say that I'm a huge fan of the shock-white of the assault rifle. It makes it look unfinished, G1 color accuracy be damned.

    How do the missile launchers mount on the trailer, assuming you have a first run UM?

    Yes it's the first run. Their are grooves on the back of the launchers that go on the tabs on the side of the trailer.

    Wow, those look absolutely brilliant! I'm not even mad about the launchers!

    Massive kudos to Fansproject.

    Does the new rifle store on/in the trailer at all?

    I have the first run of the trailer and there doesn't seem to be any storage capabilities for the rifle. On the later runs you can sub out a missile launcher and put the gun in the peg hole instead.

    It can go in the back of the trailer but it falls out the bottom.

    Edit: Found a way to not make it fall through. The two shoulder towers provide just enough room to hold the gun in place.

    I am sold on this now. I was just waiting for confirmation that the missles can attach in trailer mode to the original trailer.

    And THAT was what I wanted to know!

    Awesome, now I can make each Commander look unique, and Powered will certainly look better with that more 'Optimus' face.

    I don't like how it has white on it, since the Powered Commander set had no white anywhere.

    I believe the new face would look better on city commander. But you need the newer release to take advantage of that (I've heard it has the structural changes of the other commanders.), it looks like un-armored magnus' face.

    can't wait on BBTS to get these. my first run city commander's head snapped, so I pre-ordered the whole set.

    The second run has improved construction, notably using screws instead of glue. It also has several new features including different mounting options for the accessories.

    At this point, the second version is much more widely available with little if any difference in cost. There's no reason to buy the first run anymore.
