    So I've been looking for an authentic Fansproject Shadow Commander for quite some time now. I have been checking pretty much daily a couple times a day on E Bay for one EXCEPT YESTERDAY. Lo and behold there were THREE of them that sold for $110 shipped (Fansproject Shadow Commander Mint in Box MIB - eBay (item 320638229878 end time Jan-03-11 13:11:13 PST))!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! FML, this happens to me all the time, I waste all my time looking for good deals only to be hosed when I take a short break :mad . Sorry for venting but needed to say something.

    PS. If you were one of the lucky ones to get one of these I'd pay $150;)  shipped for one.

    This is why when I'm hunting and I feel I'm not gonna find anything at a store nearby, I quickly change my mind and check them out because the moment i decide not to go, that's when they have something. Of course, they don't have anything, but at least I know.

    It's much easier and less expensive to buy the KO armor if you just want the sword. I have a KO sword I bought from someone on TFW, and it's indistiguishable from the real one. At least, without scrutinizing too hard.

    Bwegh...Shadow Commander's the only one of the three Convoy mold armors I don't have. I found one on ebay a while back for $130 and it turned out to be a KO. Granted I'd heard some stories about decent SC KO's, but damn, the armor wouldn't even stay attached and most of the panels didn't line up right.

    Thank god for return & refund.


    So for now, Nemesis Prime goes naked.

    I got mine from ebay for 259.00 shipped from a seller in maylasia a few months back, when I was still collecting these. I over paid way too much. at the time I had to get it, it was the only one I needed at the time to finish all the commanders. :(

    I read a report that says the newest factory moulds of TFC Powered Commander actually hold on the toy very well and are nearly as good as the real deal; and that if that is the case and they make some Nemesis stylee ones then that might be a better buy.
    I think the only 'major' issue with the old fake armour was the shoulders being to loose anyway and that was fixable with a bit of effort.

    I'd certainly consider a fake armour even though I own the real deal and I'd use it with the bootleg Wonderfest Convoy as a Black Autobot Character (with a different face plate or head being used).

    If your only planning on displaying it in armour mode is it worth paying $150.00-$300.00 for one ?

    Wouldn't mind gettin a KO of Shadow Commander just for the sword. My KO Wonderfest Prime needs a kick arse sword. (may have to die it deep red to match)

    I have a legit set that I might be willing to part with if the offer is right. The armour has only been assembled once and it also has a pair of Perfect Effect Shadow Warriors and the Shadow Demopack. If there is still interest, I can upload some pics

    So I missed out again on Shadow Commander. There was one on EBay for $200 OBO +$28 shipping. This was more than I really wanted to spend but I figured I'd put an offer in for $172 to try and get it for an even $200. I get an e-mail saying it sold and I wasn't to pissed because I figure someone offered more then I wanted to spend. Then I saw it sold for a best offer of $170! That's $2 LESS than what I offered, what the hell!?!?!?!? It still would of been a little more than I wanted to spend but I get screwed yet again!

    Maybe it's the takara primes that's mess up and not the ko armor? We did hear that the ko shadow Commader armor was good quality unlike the ko city commander.
