Just like the title says.
Thanks in advance.
There are two versions:
Powered Commander for the Hasbro version
DIA Commander for the Henkei version
The DIA Commander was released? I never heard anything about it since it was announced
It was released before you joined the forums; it's currently on clearance at BBTS.
Not True. The only difference between the 2 is one thing. That's the energon cube case the Powered Commander comes with.
EDIT: The chrome is also a difference. My Mistake.
Not True DIA has chromed parts, Powered Commander does not
Powered Commander is arguably matched to the Hasbro's Classics Prime. The paint detailing in trailer mode match the cab. Likewise, DIA Commander's paint scheme in trailer mode match Takara's Henkei Prime*.
Other than this, there are several differences in paint apps, plastic colors and chrome apps. The energon suitcase is the only accessory that Powered Commander (I'm not counting the TFcon stickers) has that DIA Commander does not.
At this point though, DIA Commander can be had for significantly cheaper: $80 at BBTS vs. $200+ for Powered Commander on ebay.
* Note the silver striping along the cab and trailer, below.

And the big TFCon sticker for the side of the trailer/BFG
Also a few minor color differences.
Technically, there isn't an armor set for Classics Prime. Diaclone blue cab and all.
