I'm trying to buy a Fansproject City Commander. What are the differences between ver. 1 and ver. 2 both are by Fanproject. Do they both come with a gun and extra faces? Are they painted differently? Thanks for any help you can provide.

Not between Fansproject and KO but between ver. 1 & 2 of Fansproject City Commander? Thanks though. Anyone know the differences?

I have both, V2 has better articulation on the head, my V1 head has not much range of movement at all. Also V2 comes with the rifle and missiles, and there are holes to allow the missiles to be more firmly attached in trailer mode.

other than this, they are the same. Here is a side-by-side pic - I added the Autobot symbols

I'll point out that Perfect Effect made a backpack that allows you to attach the missile launchers more easily in V1. So, even if you have V1, there's still a way to stick those missiles on in trailer mode.

Another difference is that V2's face slides out easily, allowing you to switch it out for various others (including a custom one Dr. Dr. Wu). V1's face is pegged in more securely. It's possible to break it and make it slide out, but I couldn't bring myself to do that.

On a related note, I'm looking for a V2 or KO CC head to stick on my own V1 CC ...

Thank you, is there a ver. 1 & 2 for shaddow commander?

And on the CC head you're looking for... Just rip the face off the one you own with all your might then you'll no longer need to track one down. If you brake it! No worries because you were replacing it to begin with. Good Luck.

There's a peg that holds it in place that I'd have to cut. I'd rather shell out for a new head altogether than deface the one I already have, if that makes any sense.

All the upgrades to the CC mould were found in Shadow Commander first. So there's no "V1" of Shadow commander; he's always had the holes in vehicle mode for the missile launchers and the rest. FYI, the KOs all used Shadow Commander as a base so they're all "V2" as well, just kind of shitty.

Version 2 comes with the missile launchers and bonus gun. Well worth it I believe. That's the only legit version I own. All my repaints are KO's. (Shadow,DIA,SG)

Her is your best option at TF Source pre-prder for $139. I dont think you will get a better deal from anybody personally.

Ver. 1 is available to me for $85 shipped? But without gun, missiles and the head issue, I might pass?

He needs the missiles to really look cool. The gun is also equally awesome. Much better than using that truck cab thing Hasbro gives you. You also get this little clear suitcase with really small energon cubes which I never use. There is a KO Missile and gun set available at Robotkingdom for 20 bucks.

I have the first version City Commander with the upgrade set that has the gun, missiles, and extra faces. There is a semi-secure way to mount the launchers on the V1, with the only detriment being that the pegs that hold it on in bot mode will stick out. Also the head articulation is not that limited on the V1, it just needs time to loosen up... oh and be damned careful when trying to do so, I broke one neck already trying to get it to move at all!

Other collectors' opinions notwithstanding, I could care less for the extra stuff... my brother does, but I don't. The base set does what it needs to do without the unnecessary fluff of G1 accurate accessories, and the extra faces have no place to store!

I'll consider it the next time I'm within 50 miles of a home depot, and when I pull the old box that I left the faces in out of the back of the closet.

On the up side I did keep the mouthpated face out and put it on my D.I.A. commander. Makes him looks kinda like Star Saber.

I just used the G1 missile launchers instead of buying the upgrade set. His G1 gun as well. But i of course already had those parts on hand. But if you don't than 20 bucks for that set seems like a good deal.

$16.99 for the shadow Commander set. And I do have the upgrade set for ultra Magnus too. For $20 you get the extra faces too.
