    I realize made a few posts about these guys since I had never heard of them. They currently have the 2009 City Commander reissue in stock for $83.00. I bit the bullet and paid with PayPal to cover myself.

    TF-Toys.com: City Commander Trailer Set with TFX-03 City Commander Add On Set

    Low and behold less than two weeks later ( Yesterday to be exact ) with Air Mail Registered I received a brand new, well packaged, 2009 City Commander and a hand written Christmas card. If you want one at this price I suggest you get on it because there are only 6 left in stock...

    Update: Here's concrete proof folks

    Cheers man, been umm-ing and arr-ing about justifying getting this guy as an xmas treat or putting the money in the travelling to Australia fund, but at less than £65 delivered I couldn't pass, there is now one less available! Thanks man (though my wallet doesn't share the sentiment!!)

    I have this guy with the add on set. This link is for both and at $83. Sounds too good to be true but someone is already vouching and another ordered.

    This is a Festivus Miracle. A MERRY FESTIVUS FOR THE REST OF US.

    Yeah, I pretty much just did the same thing. I figured if I passed up on this for this price (under $100 US shipped), I'd hate myself a whole lot later.

    Yeah, unless we get another release of it the price is only going up and up on this bad boy, and my Magnus has been naked for far to long (paid £12.50 for him with no accessories, but I can't see him being out of the armour enough to make a difference)

    Isn't there a KO of City Commander? Or just the other two variations? $83 + being from HK certainly does seem too good to be true.

    There is a KO available I've seen for $35+ ish before shipping. There's a comparison thread kicking about somewhere that I'll be having a look at as soon as my set arrives, but the rest of the stuff on the site looks ok, and I've paid with paypal so any problems shouldn't be too difficult to resolve.

    Looks like they're all gone now, have you had chance to confirm this isn't a KO Optimist?

    I caved on this last night like a fool, but paid with PayPal so hopefully I don't get burned. Fingers are crossed it's FP and not a KO.... :(

    Well to knowledge there wasn't a KO made of 2009 reissue that came packaged with the TFX-03 set. Everything looks and feels legit. The set is nice and heavy in trailer mode just like it should be. I've held a KO City Commander before and this has that nice solid feel of an actual Fansproject product. To those of you who ordered, I would not be worried.

    Edit: I took a look at that thread comparing the KO and real CC just to be on the safe side. The TF-Toys.com CC is NOT, I repeat, NOT a KO. Whiskey Tagno Bravo Zulu Banana Phone Out.

    Added those pics.

    Yeah, that's what I got. I went back to the site and saw that they still had the "buy 2 of them for this price!" still in stock. Then I hesitated for a minute, and then it showed up as out of stock.

    Kinda crushing, especially with a KO Ultra Magnus on the way (I found him for cheap the same day I saw this :mad )
