    hey guys..
    i just got this upgrade kit today, and decided to share some pics.. if there's already a thread for this, please merge!

    standard box and packaging...

    artwork on the bottom of the inner package
    [​IMG]

    sticker sheet and plugs
    [​IMG]

    instruction sheet is a black/white comic with red.. kinda like the sin city movie :D

    trailer mode.. very nice, although i did forget the cannons that can go on the side (didnt know they existed :D ) and the chrome is quite nice too, goes with henkei convoy's grill

    and in bot mode.. awesome!

    close up of head, and shoulders with the cannons attached..

    another close up of the head..couldnt take a closer pic of the head without it getting super blurry
    [​IMG]

    and with the gun.. no, i didnt make him carry it, its too much trouble :D 
    [​IMG]

    and of course, comparison side by side pics with the other two
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    all in all, i love this upgrade kit.. all 3 of them.. the paint apps on this is very nice, the shoulder cannons make it look even better, and different to the other two (kinda like SC's awesome sword).. the quality of the product is as good as ever (they've improved the joint on the chest piece, which was really flimsy on my CC and SC sets).. hope u enjoyed the pics.. cheers

    I haven't asked, but is the NECK joint stronger on this/shadow commander than on city commander? I had my city commander's head snap off.

    I like! Looks very nice!

    Now I wish I had:
    A. Some form of the classic Prime Mold.
    B. The greens to spend on the upgrade set and classic Prime...

    ...I did not start collecting again until the first movie..... ah well...

    Though I kinda like the Shadow Commander better... maybe I am just dark...

    IMO the red shins make this the far cooler looking toy

    as for this VS the TFCon I cant help but think this is more like the premium item

    Can't really blame FansProject for the majors changes after the big hate thread. They did it to please like 10 loud mouth fans who will never buy their products. :lol  Though, the changes are a nice improvement.

    So I feel like asking a silly question...what, if anything, does DIA standfor? Everytime I see it my brain pulls a trick and I see "DIY" or Do It Yourself. I also drink too much.

    Thanks for the pics. It looks awesome. I just hope there are some left when I come up with the spare cash. Too many Transformers to buy right now. Thanks for the shot of the Protector upgrade. Just picked up an extra Rodimus and this thing will be ordered the first hour it is up.

    The free gift info seemed to be misinformation from the wholesaler according to Red Leader.

    The missile launchers are on the wrong shoulders. Look at the art, the shorter one goes on top, that way his elbows can bend more, the way you have it, his elbows can not bend.

    meh 6 of one, half a dozen of the other I know :p 

    He looks pretty good, I may have to get him in addition to my TFcon one, dunno though.
