    I have been looking around to see if there is any chance of picking these up.
    I'm looking for the armor set for classics optimus specifically, but any will do as I can repaint.
    Am I stuck with ebay? Or is there somewhere to pick it up for a good price.
    I really wish fansprojects and hasbro could hook up and release these with the figures....
    Any help would be appreciated.

    eBay is your last hope right now.

    And they aren't going to be cheap.

    It depends which flavor you're looking for.

    City Commander (Ultra Magnus) is scarce, and eBay will rally be your only hope.

    Shadow Commander (Nemesis Prime) is still in stock in a lot of online stores like BBTS, and can be purchased there. There's also a high quality knock off floating around.

    Powered Commander (TFCon exclusive Diaclone Powered Convoy colors) was a limited run for the TFCon in Toronto, and can probably only be found on eBay. This was the set color matched to and intended for Classics Optimus Prime, rather than Henkei Convoy.

    D.I.A. Commander (Powered Convoy colors again, but with chrome) is still in development and hasn't been released yet, and if you're looking for a set for Classics Optimus Prime this will probably be your best bet. This set is more color matched to Henkei Convoy.

    Here's a pic of the first three commander sets, so you can get an idea of the differences.

    did the Powered Convoy come with the original "ultra magnus" face too? like the nemesis one did? or does it just come with the face plate?

    because the powered convoy version is the one i've wanted a while, i actually like it's colors better then ultra magnus' colors...

    Actually, Powered commander ONLY comes with the Ultra Magnus face. He does not have the faceplate face like Shadow Commander. Though, his head is the same mold as Shadow Commander, so you could swap in the Shadow Commander faceplate if you REALLY wanted.

    That sounds like the opposite of what you want, though, so, to answer your question, YES, he has the Ultra Magnus face.

    I know everyone says Powered Commander is intended for Prime, but I still think it's supposed to be for Magnus, to make him Diaclone/Movie Preview Magnus.

    Sucks that I only very recently found out about these sets.

    I would have been all over all 3 of these as I have Prime, Magnus, and Nemesis.

    Such is life I suppose.

    Technically, he would be made for the non-existent blue Classics Optimus, to be completely Diaclone-accurate.

    BBTS and TFSource still have the D.I.A. Commander on preorder for $119.
    TFCon Powered Commander you should be able to find on these boards for less then $200.
    If you really do not care about color you can still buy the shadow commander for $90 or less.

    All those prices are pretty close to retail. You're not going to find City Commander at retail ($80) unless you're really lucky.

    With anything FansProject, get them as soon as they are released and while you can. Otherwise you'll end up regretting it and be forced to supply a scalper's income.

    Sioce, welcome to the boards!
