    Hi all, just like to bring to your attention that apparently after the KO Shadow Commander, a KO City Commander set is released.

    On the 3rd page of this 'KO Shadow Commander Review' thread, user 'csepdi_do' commented that the KO City Commander (in his words: original colours) has very poor-fitting arm pieces (same as the KO Shadow Commander) which drop the moment the arms are pointing downwards. The leg pieces are however, tight-fitting. Couple of posters also share the same sentiment regarding the arm pieces.

    OP for this FP Aerialbots Appendages thread also posted that the KO City Commander set was released and asked whether anyone else bought it (last sentence of his post).

    summary of his review:
    1. Flimsy packaging box
    2. Very weak trailer connection
    3. Loose shoulder piece
    4. Ultra Magnus' guns doesn't fit into the shoulder piece (too loose, had to jam 'something' in the hole)
    5. Very loose arm pieces (had to jam a piece of plastic inside)
    6. BFG doesn't snap together properly

    He gives it a 8 for trailer mode & a 7 for bot mode, only recommends it for display purposes.

    It was only a matter of time for this to pop up. There were rumors the KO Shadow Commander was done by some fans, or ties to another fan group. Seeing how these 3rd party products are geared towards a small group, I guess there could be some truth to it.

    It is selling at 9800 yen and up in Japan already.
    Quality is really bad. But those who got the kit says Shadow Commander KO is better then the City Commander KO.

    There are a lot of people who missed out on City Commander's release. So I can see this KO being popular, unless FansProject releases a "perfect" City Commander with missiles and extras. The only problem is fans who have the original will get mad, and others will complain for repainting it a second/fourth time, or for some other reason.

    Rather then pumping out the old City Commander kit and add parts to make it "perfect", I would rather see a second/revised version of the City Commander kit from them. I won't say the kit is not good, but I really want to see it evolves into something else.

    I'll buy one if I can get it for under $100, I'd buy a fansproject one just as fast if they offered it again. All that matters to me is getting one or a knock off at a reasonable price. It's actually nice to see someone stepping up and filling demand even if the product has a few small defects from the original. Maybe it will stop businesses from limiting their products so much.

    I'm really glad I bought the original when it first came out. I would hate to buy today and find out after that was a KO with poor quality. But if you missed it and can't find it, some may take what they can get. Poor souls.

    The only reason that I'd even consider picking up KO's of the City/Shadow Commander sets (outside of the fact I'd ALSO need an example of the Classics Prime mold, which I STILL lack...) is for customization reasons, since I'd not bring an Exacto knife anywhere NEAR the real deals (too awesome and valuable for that). For the KO's, however, I could probably make interchangeable battle damage parts for the real armors while not hurting the actual toy.

    Well for a KO it does not look that bad in either mode. I think with some mods it could be just as good as Fansprojects. I was lucky enough to get an orginal FP City Commander kit, seeing how popular the City Commander kit is. I only hope is that FP will see this and reproduce the City Commander upgrade kit with the shoulder missiles and also have a missile add on kit for the people who have the first release kit

    Worse part is this KO is about 110. 9800 yen comes out to $106. That is more expensive than the original release. Whose going to pay money for a low quality KO of a fan made product at a set point higher than the original release. I guess the original FP set does go for more than 180 now.

    The KO makers of this know there are crazy fans who are willing to pay more than what the original cost. Just like those KO Cliffjumper kits, that are being sold for like over $70, when the original cost $30. Their doing their wallets a favor, not the fans. :lol
