    As I was watching a video review of the DIA Commander, I looked over at my Fansproject stuff and tried to think which of their products I owned was my favorite. I own the first City Commander with the later released add on kit, the G3 Trailer, and Springer. I like all 3 so much, it's tough to decide which one I like most. The G3 Trailer, isn't quite as cool as the other 2, but it's a must own piece for me. And the love I have for the other two goes without saying. Thoughts?

    The Superion kit showed that you can polish a turd. The Bruticus kit should be even better.

    I have to say, as of right now, I can't put Defender down. He's so amazing.

    Yeah he is. Such genius craftsmanship on Fansproject's part. So hard to choose though, cause the same can be said for City Commander and the G3 Trailer aswell.

    City Commander is just so amazing that it is hard to top. That being said, every piece that they have producted is a work of art. I may have to pick up another Superion if they ever produce more of the original upgrade (I only have the Snowman). Each piece has been a winner in my book. Just wish I could have gotten the Cliffy Upgrade, and I may order the Alt gascan gun for the hell of it.

    Probably D.I.A Commander. Don't get me wrong, I love springer but something about having a kick ass, diaclone colored Ultra Magnus (Convoy) really means a lot to me.

    Warbot Defender (Springer) is my favorite. I have the original City Commander with upgrade kit and G3 Prime trailer as well and they are all great but if I had to pick one it would be Springer because I do not feel takara could make a better one.

    Honestly? CC and Defender are tied, I think. They're both amazing pieces.

    In my opinion, City Commander is the quintessential Fansproject piece, and the one that made them a household name for TF fans. In time, however, I think that Warbot may supplant it (especially if the mold is re-used for an evil figure, or possibly beyond that). Its such a great mold (which I'm sure was VERY expensive to produce) that I can't see them not re-using it down the line. Plus, its actually a stand-alone toy.

    My Defender isn't here yet, but to me, their definitive piece is CC. They established their look w/ that figure and also made a trailer fit around an existing figure all while maintaining articulation. That feat and the quality of the product is what has allowed everything else.

    I will love Springer. I enjoy my G3 trailer and was impressed by the Superion upgrade. I think my 'favorite' will be the Bruticus upgrade pieces when they are released, but in a sense, they all derive from CC.

    It's a really hard call.

    The Aerial Appendage kit vastly improves the utility of Energon Superion Maximus, and the Bruticus kit will no doubt be even more effective. The G3 trailer is pretty essential for completing the Classics Optimus Prime look, and complimenting other Classics figures. Defender fills a large void in the season 3 cast of toys.

    It probably comes down to one of the Commander armors for me.

    City Commander also scratches a big itch the fanbase has had for years, and in my opinion, its deco really owns the mold. Shadow Commander, while a relative nobody, makes for an incredibly good stand alone toy. And Powered/DIA Commander gets a huge, automatic bump for being power-up armor for Optimus Prime; that guy really cannot get enough accessories.

    City Commander is the only FP product I own at the moment, so that gets the default. I do want to pick up a G3 trailer sometime in the near future though.

    I only own the Superion add-on. And I will probably spring for the Bruticus set as well. I'm just a combiner nut. Here's hoping they'll eventually release complete combiner sets of Menasor and Computron among others.
