    The head does not work at all way to detailed and the face looks strange.
    The rest is ok.

    Kinda wish the optics where little larger, but other than that it looks like a nice kit.

    The head does seem to clash a bit with the rest of the armor. Seems a bit too detailed compared to the smoother surfaces of the armor.

    Definitely like the sword, gun and missiles!

    I just can't get over the reality of an Upgrade kit FOR an upgrade kit! LOL

    Cause no robot is complete without a sweet sword!

    Seriously though, looks pretty good. Too bad I don't have the City Commander set.

    Eh, I'm leaning towards a pass. The head isn't working for me, the sword seems irrelevant (unnecessary?) for City Commander. I appreciate the size of the gun, but I wish it sat in his fist a little more securely. The shoulder missiles are a neat, but like the gun, I need to see them in color first.

    IF the gun and missiles look decent, and the kit is no more than $30, I'll consider it.

    I like it :)  I wish the eyes were a bit larger too, but oh well, it certainly does not have a wicked smile, and I know I couldn't do better...it is a great kit, head, missles, gun, and sword, and at least i-gears seems like they keep trying to improve their work/craftsmanship (ex: the gear of war changes), so this set should equal massive win :)

    You know the Guns and the missles and even the sword. those are things that were left out of City Commander, but each time I see a new head it says to me "Thanks for all your hard work...we just thought it wasn't hard enough, and instead of making our own kit we'll just do an upgrade piece for your upgrade piece."

    No thanks, my City commander with G1 Missiles is good enough for me!

    I like the original head better...
    I'd like to see someone make a head with G1 goggles...

    City Commander does not need any improvements. But the rifle looks sweet.

    where do these pieces come from exactly? All made by igear? I cant help but feel that this is an attempt to jump on the success of the city commander set for $$ and milk it for all it's worth. Something doesnt seem right with these pieces, The missiles are the only thing worthwhile in the set. They sould sell them for $10 and they'd probably make more money.

    Anyway, PASS

    I like it head is a little more detailed than everything else and the eyes should be just a little bigger but overall thats a pretty sweet kit

    and anyone notice the Wreckers symbol on the sword hilt?

    It definitely look better than joker smiling face, clean and handsome, but it is not necessary for me. Pass for me.

    The head is certainly better than the other set... but then again, we haven't actually seen the production version.

    It's definitely a good effort, but it's trying to grab a niche market of a niche market.
