    So I have the Fansproject City Commander and I just bought the G1 Ultra Magnus missile launchers that happen to be able to fit into City Commanders arms. I thought that look was a lot better (and cheaper since i'm not going to pay $80 for the TFX-03 add on set).

    I didn't think until just now but being that I have the original City Commander set that doesn't have the holes in the sides like the newer one for the tfx-03 missile launchers, Is it possible to attach the G1 missile launchers to City Commander in vehicle mode or no. If not the only thing I can think of would be buying the Perfect Effect PX-03 backpack that looks like i'd be able to attach them that way.

    Does anyone know if its possible without the backpack and If it's even possible to attach into the holes on the backpack itself?

    Wait, I'm confused.

    You have the first release of the City Commander trailer, and G1 UM missile launchers. They should just plug into the holes in the shoulders. I have the first release, and it has holes in the shoulders for them. They were put there for the G1 missile launchers, until FansProject later made missile launchers with the later Commander sets.

    I don't know what PX-03 has to do with any of it.

    EDIT: Oh, vehicle mode. I don't think they do.

    Yes, There is hole in the shoulders for the missile launchers in ROBOT mode. I'm talking about in VEHICLE mode. Here's a picture to help

    Now the PX-03 set will let their other items attach using holes on the side when it is mounted in vehicle mode as seen here

    I was just wondering if it is possible to connect the G1 Launchers to City Commander in VEHICLE mode with me having the one with no holes like seen in the first picture? If not I was wondering if the peg size on the G1 launchers will fit in the backpack

    No they don't. I remember a few people modded their City Commanders to have the missiles fit on vehicle mode.

    So then if they don't, will the G1 launchers fit on the holes in the backpack like those guns seen in the 2nd picture I posted?

    The backpack uses 5mm pegholes, so yes, it should work. Tolerances permitting.

    Thanks I hope so. I don't plan on displaying in vehicle mode but i'd like to have the option with the launchers. The backpack would also fix the displaying with the big @$$ gun problem.

    Does anyone have it? Would you recommend it?

    This is how I see it.

    I really don't care for the look of the Fansproject launchers. The G1 toy I think would look the best on him in with my other G1 Autobot collection. Sure, just buying the launchers means you don't also get the gun and faceplates but The head to me looks perfectly fine and I think the Wind vein whatever it's called gun looks good with all the armor on.

    because even if he did get it, he still wouldn't have mounting points for it in vehicle mode

    Actually I believe they did design the Fansproject ones to also attach to the first city commander by sliding on those little notches on the sides. Then they remolded it to actually have holes there for the launchers.

    Hey the G1 launchers aren't bad. I used those when I first got City Commander. Just as long as you're not using the reissue missiles that is lol.

    LOL if someone ends up wanting to buy the add-on set with the missiles, I'd go in for just the gun. Keep the faceplates, too. Well, maybe just gimmie one.

    Ok, I stop dreaming now :lol 


    I used a set prior to getting the add-on kit for mine (as my CC was a 1st release that didn't come with everything). Even the TRU reissue Magnus missiles will work well - just cut off the long portions of the missiles and reglue the missiles to fit :)
