    Just got the Fans Project City Commander in the mail. What a fast turn around!!! But when I opened it I saw a tiny bag of pegs and faces. Did any of the other releases come with these? It's the first I've heard of these!!!

    The pegs were a new addition starting with Shadow Commander. The mold was revamped a bit starting with Shadow to incorporate screw-together construction (the original City Commander was completely glued and pinned together), and the pegs are for plugging in the screw holes, if you wish.

    The extra face parts were a new inclusion with the Add-on set. Should have the regular face with white eyes for better contrast (one of the original complaints about the original face was that the pale blue eyes blended into the silver too easily and made them look unpainted), and then the "unmasked"-style face.

    It's all awesome! I have the KO version and it really is levels below the real thing.

    The second face is hilarious though. The very incarnation of dull surprise!

    The extra faces can also fit in the Protector Armor's headpiece so keep 'em handy!

    Wiat, reissue has new parts?

    I think I'll feel outrage at this. I bought CC when it first came out and now I suffer with missile/faceless outrage!

    Unacceptable! I wonder who I can email to express my outrage and thus get free accessories...
