    I have a set of City Commander armor pre-ordered. With the chance of getting some D.I.A. and Shadow Commander armor. But I think I can only get one set. If you had to choose which one would you get?

    Personally, the City Commander armor is the only one that appeals to me since it actually represents a canon character, unless I'm missing something major. I'm not really interested in all the other armors.

    Once my City and Shadow Commanders arrive from BBTS, I'll finally have all three. But if I could only pick one it would definitely be City Commander.

    City Commander, make UM look like UM, not a white doppelganger. Ive had the original one since it first came out, got the add-ons too. Had the Shadow Comm and sold it. I preordered it again though. Not sure if Im even going to get it. Probably end up canceling it. I have Nemy with the BTS trailer, thats good enough for me. As far as the rest of the armors go, never even thought of getting any of the others.

    I can't afford any of them at the prices for which they're selling right now, but if I could get one, it would definitely be City Commander. I like its colors best, and it's a real TF character.

    i have city and shadow on preorder.

    i consider city commander more of a "need" while shadow commander is more of a "want" for me. : P i don't even like/want the others.

    id actually like another nemesis prime now to have one displayed as shadow commander and one as nemesis prime. : )

    That's an easy one. CC armor was meant to be for UMagnus, to make him unique from the Classic Prime. Therefore, you should get it for him. All others are just repaint including DIA, ehhe, a rare case of Magnus repaint into Prime.

    Of all of them, I would have to say Powered Commander if my personal fav. It does have some sentimental value... so that decision might be a bit biased.

    This. I couldnt give a crap less about Shadow Commander. Although I -do- think the Powered and DIA armors look quite nice (I always preferred Diaclone Magnus's colors over what G1 ended up with. Really fits the "late 70's mecha" aesthetic)

    If you can only get one set, City Commander is it. No contest. You'll want Ultra Magnus sporting a different look than a repainted Optimus.

    The rest of the Commanders are just fan-created characters and are not as integral to the collection as Ultra Magnus.

    I **LIKE** Shadow Commander the best, but outta' the 3, City Commander would take priority because it's an actual character.

    Ditto. Shadow Commander is neat and my favorite of the armors, but City Commander is the must-have of the bunch.

    From where I am now, if I theoretically had to reduce my collection so that I could only keep one Commander and a handful of other figures, I would probably have to go with Shadow Commander. Being a sort of made up character helps to detach him from a potential completionist mentality. City Commander is probably my favorite, but he's too tethered to the season 3 cast. DIA Commander is also awesome for being essentially overkill for Optimus Prime, but I think his deco is the least appealing.

    City Commander bar none. It *is* Ultra Magnus.

    I know D.I.A. Commander is technically the original scheme for the Prime Trailer -> Armor Suit back in the Diaclone line days... but the Blue/White armor represents UM, which makes that version more valuable to many.

    Same deal will be the case with the MakeToys G2 Trailer kits for RTS Laser Prime. While a "normal" set will be released to upgrade G2 Laser Prime... the Black version for an inevitable RiD Scourge repaint will be valued more by collectors.
