    In my travels around the net looking for a City Commander. :banghead:  I came across something interesting. It looks like a City Commander set but it looks like its ment for Classic Optimus Prime. Its called someting like Classic D.I.A. Powered Commander set. Is this a Legit Fansproject item or a KO?

    It's a legit product. They repainted it to be used on another version of the same mold. They also released a "Shadow Commander" to go on Nemesis Prime.

    DIA has chrome parts to go along with the chrome on Henkei Prime. TFCON has the Energon briefcase. Thats the only differences.

    Fixed.

    Powered and DIA Commanders are a reference to Powered Convoy's deco for the Diaclone release, which came with a blue "Prime."

    kotoys.com I was thinking of getting one and repainting it for Nemesis Prime as Motormaster. A new head would look pretty cool, too. I'd love to know if anyone has done this to see how it looks.

    You guys should discuss the quality differences in the KO version before suggesting someone get it simply because of the price. Because, I'd be pretty dissapointed thinking I got an awesome deal, and then a fucking arm falls off because I put a gun in his hand.

    The KO version is Aesthetically perfect, but, definitely not on par in terms of all around quality.
