the second version has head movement..while the first version, try turning it and it will SNAP!!!
While a few might have been sloppily glued, the head on mine moves just fine.
I just got a DIA commander on my trip to Japan. The kit is fantastic, the only thing I dislike is the "left shoulder" peg for holding prime's "roof wind thingy gun" is loose as hell, and the gun will not stay pegged in. Is this common?
it's most likely actually just a little tight, carefully push it in further. I know on my first release CC it takes a little more force than expected to get the windvane gun to stay.
Can you change the faceplate with the first run armor?
I just got mine in today and unless it takes a LOT of force, then I don't believe so. Really sucks, but none of the new faces look that great to me anyways.
Does anybody REALLY want to see UM's o-face? Cuz that's all I'm seeing with the new faceplate.
yeah you can change the face on the first run, it just takes a little more force (tighter fit)
Where did you hear this? I was told that the City Commander re-release was going to be just like the first aka almost all glued together. I'd like to know, because if this is the case I'll be selling my 1st run one to a friend.
I just assumed this was the case, as the re-release has all the new features of the more recent Commander releases. To be sure, ask someone who has the second run, but I'd be very surprised if they went with the original construction.
This seems to confirm the second run uses screws and plugs. There are some very nice pictures here, too.
proordered mine from bbts anyway. gun and missles too awesome. First armor still seems to hold up fine for me.
I got mine a few days ago. The launchers fit perfectly. The gun is really nice, but it could use a black wash. The face plates are nifty, but I like the original face the best. They are a neat throw in, though.
how hard would it be to die these black or at least to dark charcoal color for shadow commander?
hey RED SNARL I got a pic request. do you have shadow commander? can you slide the red missles from the UM set into the Powered commander set and put them on shadow? Just want to see what it would look like on SC before i commit.
Here you go. Can't do vehicle mode because of the difference with the launchers.
wow that was exactly the problem, i thought the resistance was the bottom of the peg hole, but low and behold it was just the super tight fit of the entrance! Thanks for the help.
Wow, thanks Red Snarl, I think you sold me.
I might have to try that. I'm thinking of getting this, dying the white black, and then trying to darken the red a little, hopfully I can get it closer to a blood red.
You mention that the PC Launchers won't fit the vehicle mode of SC, will the UM launchers attach to the SC in vehicle mode?
They should. The difference is that the PC launchers don't have the correctly-sized groove that clutches the flange on the gaunlet armor hinge.
if you buy jus the launcher and the rifle add on pack does it also come with teh faces? i want to get powerd commander and i would like to attach the face guard face to him heh
