Are they kidding? An upgrade set for an upgrade set?

Hmmm, I don't know. I may just buy Tankor for 8 bucks and paint his side guns to use as "missles". With them painted white with a red tip, that would do.

The head just doesn't seem that necessary.

Lol. I wonder how the people that already bought CC are feeling about this. I mean, shit, something like this could've been thrown in with the original set.

We all knew they'd sell missiles seperately. Bastards. I'll stick with what I've got. Anyway, how are people gonna remove the head without breaking it?

These aren't made by Fan's Project they are made by a customizer.

I second this ! 8)
... although ... I woundn't mind buying it. I'm not on SG Collect either, so I wont worry about not getting it. If Fansproject does one though, I'll probably get it.

its not but there almost identical some minor differnces big differnce in the chin no missles launchers are shown........

50 so limited how sad for hard core fans of ultra magnus

i can see some crack head, drug up seller on ebay selling this set for 2 to 4 times that they are im going to have fun watching that auction just to see how much & how much the seller has to pay for the set.

I think Fansproject's version is good the way it is! The head looks a lot tougher than this new version. Although I would like to see Fansproject do some shoulder missles. Some thing not so bulky as far as the missles go. The Launchers could still be bulky though.

Hnh. It's nice they want to make the head more G1ish, but IMO the existing head is fine the way it is.

I don't like it.

I like my City Commander with his current head.

This new one doesn't fit the upgraded G1 design as well.

It isn't that hard actually, it is just on a peg. Just pull it straight up.

It looks nice, but I'm not gonna sweat not having it. A fan add-on to another fan project? That sounds like inbreeding to me! I mean, if it was plentiful and cheap I'd consider it, but I'd rather get a whole new TF than a couple of missile launchers.

If your UM head is looking upwards chances are you broke your $70 toy. The head's shape looks like it was meant to be on a ball joint, but it isn't. It's just on an old fasioned peg. I tried (gently) moving it upwards too, but it didn't want to go that way and I didn't force it. But it turns from side to side just fine. Slides off easily, actually.

Still, it would've been nice if FP included an alternate head like this.
