    Hello fellow TF fans!
    I'm having a bit of a dilemma. I have the opportunity to get either FP Steel Core or the FP City Commander set. I love both and I know there are all sorts of add-ons for City Commander by Perfect Effect but there's also things in the works for Steel Core. I need some input from some fellow fans who actually own the two.
    Thanks!

    I also may get both. Ugh! I can't decide!

    Just get both. Plus you will get better answers if this were in the 3P forums.

    Thanks! I'm new to the boards, is there a way I can move it over there?

    Steel Core first. City Commander is a lot easier to get a hold of.

    The problem is that I don't have a Classics or Henkei Ultra Magnus, but there's a packaged deal at Kapow-Toys.

    Honestly *any* version of the Classics Prime mold fits in there... and most of the City Commander's armor covers up said Prime. The most notable place where the figures would be apparent are the sides of the legs.

    If you already think you may get both, start with Steel Core. I think so far he's the shining example of what FP is capable of. I personally like Assaulter the best of FP's toys, but Steel Core is the better toy.

    I really like Steel Core and will probably get his trailer as well whenever they start putting that out. I got into Fansproject do to causality though so he hits more of those stylistic lines, City commander I think is like the second thing they did after that alternators Optimus prime gas can gun.

    Steel core will be released in other color schemes with retooling done. So get the city commander while you can and pick up steel core or one his redecos later. But personally I don't care for the armor and leave my Classics magnus as a showpiece of the pure complete Hasbro classics line in 2007.
