    So after playing with Powered Commander a little more I discovered that the missiles, int he exclusive missile launcer set, are independant of the launcher. What is even better is that the missiles can be removed. AND they fit in G1 UM launchers!!!! FP really surprises me with every thing they do.

    You only need to pull the missile out. No need to take the launcher apart.

    nope. If you look at the picture of the exposed/dissected launchers, you can see there is no mechanism for launching them.

    damn man, FP is so good. Love these really insane projects with great attention to detail, their missiles sitting next to the G1 ones make the G1s look so goofy.

    My mistake, I could have sworn SC came with them. Still it doesn't change my feelings on how the two general releases drew the short stick.

    Yeah, all this crap on exclusives to what I think stems from greed just to jack up the price from the loyal and devoted fans and collectors.

    They could have make them for the mass at a reasonable price. FP would still make a killing.

    Agent GHQ. Sorry to say but that is wrong. It is easier to sell off a small batch of 500 than try and sell off and unload a couple thousand. There are too many people out there who are satisfied with their CC and SC. FP is clever enough to add cool stuff like missiles and briefcase.

    Only a few fans are complaining. and if you add all those few fans that are S.O.L that doesnt add up to much pull or weight. You missed out well oh well. However im sure some clever person will recast the missiles and fill the request of the many for that feature to add to thier SC and CC.


    The way FP did it was perfect. granted they could have done an iacon type like botcon. but the whole point is to draw people in and check out TFCON. No need to sulk and whine when many of you had the opportunity to get one. Heck you could have just told someone to pick one up for you. I have 8 of these things!!!! And only one of them is for me.

    So getting a Powered Convoy, no matter where you are, is not an impossibility. But now that TFCON is over and PC is sold out. you are SOL.

    Shadow panther, if you read the manual/comic for powered commander. he absorbs the energon cube and merges with the trailer.

    Right Solscud007, and those 500 pieces are expected to be sold out at a premium price? I bet the fans that was unable to attend the TFCON and wanted to buy a set is not enough to make up the 500 pieces?!

    there were quite a few left for most of the day on saturday, so if theoretically you had sent someone with money to the con to get yours, and they got them during the day, you would have got it,

    It took a great deal of strength not to come back on Saturday and buy 10 or more of them, seeing how much the extra I picked up on Friday went for on ebay. Then again, part of the reason was that I didn't want to get lynched walking out with that many....

    Powered Commander is really great and the extras that he comes with are a really nice touch. Good thing I didn't sell off my classics Prime when I got the Henkei version.

    Was this PC meant to be better for the Henkei than Hasbro OP? Color wise.

    If you look at the comparison pictures it works well with both but I think i like the Hasbro version with it.
