D.I.A. Commander Arrived....

Weapon: Plasma Blaster
Unless I'm wrong about this, the TF Parallax Power by Fansproject, is a third party add on to the Classics Henkei Prime and this is the appropriate forum for this post. So here we are. My Powered Commander:


In the box:
Image

The trailer:
Image

Parts is parts:
Image

Powered Commander w/BFG:
Image

Big Freaking Gun:
Image

Powering up:
Image

Uh oh:
Image

BOOM!!
Image

Gun is too freakin big:
Image

TARGET LOCKED:
Image

While movement is somewhat limited, I did find a pose that would work well with the TAW God Sword and that big axe (don't recall the name):
Image

Observations- Excellent quality trailer and armor, in my opinion. Like others have said, the gun is too heavy for the figure to naturally be posed to aim the gun at anything. This requires trickery in order to accomplish it. The gun could be lighter.
but hey, it's a Japanese exclusive and looks so cool in display, I don't care. Will get the God Sword and that really huge axe to display it with later. This is my "Ultimate Prime". Yes there are bigger, more expensive, and Masterpiece Prime's as well, but this one does it for me. :BOT:

You're right and wrong...........kinda.

Yes, it is by FansProject which is a third-party company, but this particular type of topic would probably be better suited for our new review forum.

Thanks for sharing though. ;)

No worries, it's no big deal. The review forum is pretty new, I'm sure a lot of folks don't even know it exist yet. :P

Right on. I agree that the gun is too much. Mine normally stays hidden behind his back. I have an extra weapon that came with an iGear set that I use for Powered Commander's weapon.

I've been trying to figure out a way to make it a shoulder mounted cannon, but haven't come up with anything yet. I have to wonder if these guys don't fully test these things before release to see how things will work. You know, transform them back and forth. Pose them. I can't imagine someone not noticing the weight of the gun is too much for the arms and come up with a way for the figure to hold it upright. That's all I can really complain about. I can always get more guns and have him hold them. :BOT:

I see what you are saying but this mold was only FP's second release. In their defense, it actually depends on the joints of your Prime/Ultra Magnus figure. I'm just glad they let the left over kibble turn into something. If you do get another weapon for him, look into the blue Perfect Effect back pack for this guy. It looks pretty cool and stores the BFG great.

Perfect Effect backpack? Sounds like a winner to me.

It's pretty nifty. I couldn't find any though that were in stock. There's a few black versions on eBay and you may be able to buy the PE Ultimate form which comes with it, along with many other things, but it's a lot more expensive. I have it though and I can vouch for the price. It's pretty sweet.

Thanks. :-) Keep your son away from your Transformers. Get him his own and keep everyone out of your "Transformer room". The D.I.A. Commander armor will cover up that missing foot and display well in trailer mode too. Do it. You'll be glad you did.

The PX-03 backpack is awesome and definitely gives me some place to put that BFG. Hopefully they'll get that in soon at TFSource.

Children are attracted to that which, when destroyed, causes the most financial damage to replace.

It's a training method all young children employ to prepare their parents for the time they have to go to university and beg for money.
