Resident Transformer reviewer Peaugh has posted a nice, detailed review of the recently released City Commander upgrade set created for the Classics Universe Ultra Magnus figure.

The video goes in the great step by step detail on how to convert and attach the new addition along with nice video angles showing off the impressive attachments.

Check out the video by clicking here and when you're done with that, check out Seibertron.com's own extensive gallery of the figure with great size comparison shots and poses.

Saw this earlier, I really need to scratch up the cash in the next week to order this one. That thing looks better and better every time.

Excellent. I can't wait to get mine. TF Source is moving their warehouse to the midwest and have yet to ship out these pieces (at least as far as I can tell when I posted this). So, I'm still waiting for mine to show up.

It is nice to see a video review done by someone with actual speaking skills, unlike about 80% of the people that do them.

That video made me appreciate the engineering even more! It's super-complicated, I can't imagine designing it.

And although none of it's how I would have even thought to design it, it works really really well.

The head sculpt, while updated, still feels very Ultra Magnus to me.

I think it's bonkers that these guys designed this thing and are selling it for that price, it's too cheap if you ask me. At least they're mass-producing it so other folks can enjoy it.

It almost makes me want to collect the Classics line, but the last thing I need is to sink more money into more plastic.

I can't believe I missed that man. Sorry.

And I just got my City Commander set yesterday. You won't believe how much better it looks in person.

The guy didn't even bother to familiarize himself with this toy before reviewing it. He just fumbles with pieces the entire time. Unlike, say...

http://www.youtube.com/user/ashens

a guy who knows very well how to video review products and such, even if most are tech gadgets.

What about people who doesn't speak at all when doing a review?

Whohoo, my City Commander just arrived today from BBTS. I must say it looks great. I'll play later on.
