    In my opinion, the City Commander set suffers a similar (though opposite) flaw as the Pandora Armor: most of the alt mode folds up into this brick, which they try to justify by calling it a (bf) gun.

    The shiny paint is really nice but the Mebsuta'd Hasbro version I feel is the better Magnus. He's big, powerful, and imposing. Plus his articulation is grand. :D

    Not a problem. I would recommend watching some videos on him though. And to pimp myself, I do actually have a video for him in the pipeline for my channel in my sig. I want to say he's scheduled for first couple weeks of Jan.

    It's probably dead. Unfortunately this product seems to have suffered from a doomed launch regardless. A large group of people refused to pay what the trailer cost and a large group of people to pay for something that doesn't transform.

    I could be wrong but I'll assume it'll never happen until proven otherwise.

    If FP made the Armor transform into a hollow car carrier instead of box trailer, then maybe the BFG wouldn't have been needed.

    It's a long shot, and I know the trailer was cancelled, but wasn't there another battle armour for this?

    Thanks, I have that. The Prime one looks nicer than the Magnus. I meant an upgrade kit for the upgrade kit that wasn't the trailer. Or was that also the trailer?

    I believe so. Something Ginrai/Godbomber-esque. There was a silhouette that had wings if I'm not mistaken. But considering how old this project is, I doubt it'll ever see the light of day.

    Huh. Long time ago I was interested in this. Still looks like a nice set.

    I'm not sure Transformazing is even still around as a company. If they are, they've been hella-silent.

    I thought they joined Fanstoys and eventually split to form Giga9. Although these guys use the same wordplay as the group making the new Stunticons.

    Anyway Weijiang should ask for the molds to OS this and finish off the FoC king Godbomber.

    It's a Pandoras Box alright...

    Necromancy special!

    I've seen an option for this on eBay I'm considering taking. I liked the figure when it was released, but never pulled the trigger.

    Anyone still have this set and still enjoy it? How's it holding up after the last few years?

    Still the same, crappy, but looks cool. There's a reason no one wants it, and the company disappeared. Biggest issue are the hip joints don't support his weight.
    All it is, is just add-on parts for the FoC Prime, but I think he's okay if you have the original and get this for 60% off... I really liked the Prime one though.

    Do you remember what the original retail price was?
