    UPDATE: Stacks will be shortened. Fear no more.

    UPDATE #2: At time of writing, ALL 150 are now sold in this second run.

    Prodimus from SGCollect has given me permission to advertise the set here. Not sure if this better belongs in news or the BST, but I understand a lot of people were interested in this set when it was first unveiled, so here's for maximum exposure!


    Prodimus encourages mass overseas orders -- if you're interested in the piece, ask around your local fanbase and see if you can't submit a joint order. I've worked out a mass order of eleven for the collectors locally, and the shipping was further discounted as a result.

    Pictures are attached below. Magnus, by the way, is not smiling; Prodimus assures me that it is the paint and the lighting angle. See original prototype for a clearer look at this face.

    The unpainted head looked good. But now with colors and attached to the body, it doesn't fit with the rest of the design. Plus, I feel the head is over detailed, not helping it to match with the design of the armor.

    Much, much better than the original City Commander head, but still not enough to encourage a purchase here. Nice work, though. Also, like the gun much more than the huge kibble-weapon of the original set.

    EDIT: On second thought, this set is ordered. Now I need to find a City Commander set! It's great that I waited so long and all of the remaining stock in stores has risen substantially. The price I pay for hesitation!

    While I think the original City Commander was dead-on perfect, this set allows me to differentiate between the original and a second I purchased. I was all for it when it was announced; I can't wait for it to arrive.

    SGD is Singapore Dollars. 1.00 SGD = 0.672849 USD. The set becomes some $22 US.

    Honestly, I think the original head was spot on. Can't say I really like this new head, but it does look like good work. Just not something I'm interested in. Maybe if I were to ever purchase another City Commander, but I've got no reason to do so.

    Also, does this mark the first time in the TF fandom that a Custom Kit has been made for a Custom Kit? :peoples:

    A nice effort, but no thanks. I already have CC's accessories, and his face sculpt has grown on me.

    Anyone else think the helmet looks really goofy?

    I really like it. It's much more "Classics" when you think about the look of the rest of the line, even going into Universe.

    I just don't have the CC set yet, and I'm not sure I'll be able to get an order in when I get paid.

    The silver face does not match. But I do like the G1 accurate gun. Too bad this will not be a purchase for me.

    Thanks, but no thanks. CC's original head is fine for me, I had an old UM I took the missile launchers from, and I use the weapons from Classics Magnus rather than the BFG. So I'm set.

    Without paint, look OK.

    The silver face make him look like Joker. And missile without spring, I rather used back my old Gen1 UM missile launcher, but at least Gun is ok . But again not necessary to have.

    I would said it is poorly done.

    The new head looks like crap with horns. I'd only buy it for the missile launchers and gun.

    Yup, totally agree with you on this one. A shame and a minor let-down. I think the only thing going for this set is the scaled down weapon. Pass. :( 

    Oh and SGD 33 = RM malsyaisn currency 70! Minor fortune to shell out IMHO. A second Henkei Hound is mush better me thinks. ;)

    Personally I love the design of the original head, so I'm set :)
