    I didnt see anyone mention this. My buddy Ben2099 noticed it and showed it to me.

    On the back of the TFCON program, there is a background story of the origins of Powered Commander. apparently he was a prototype under the "Defense Intelligence Agency Clone" program aka D.I.A.Clone haha I love it.

    nice bio.

    kida surprised they have used official logos and names, I know Hasbro are cool with some things but I would have thought that they would have danced around copyrighted stuff for this product

    I'd like to see what the Powered Commander would have done about the supposed deaths of Kup, Hot Rod and the Dinobots if he were in Ultra Magnus' position.

    Brilliant.

    This is exactly what FP could eventually do with fiction/characters for a Diaclone-themed Botcon set.

    Maybe this just gets filed under fan fiction. FP has been pretty good about staying just outside Hasbro's territory.

    IMO it's the sort of thing they should have done THIS year for the anniversary.

    HAHAHA. Very good stuff!

    Did anyone notice also on one of Powered Convoy photos that, in the upper shelf, there was a black matrix next to Superion's new feet? Can anyone attending confirm what's that about?

    Well in regards to comparing Powered Convoy to Optimus prime, then yes Powered Convoy is the original to OP. However Battle Convoy trumps Powered Convoy any day.

    I love that bio! And Alex's artwork there looks great. Maybe TFCon can continue the D.I.A Clone story
