BigBadToyStore.com- Guess who? And Guess What?

If you guessed another pre-order by site sponsor BigBadToyStore.com then you would be correct.

A few weeks back we saw some nice pictures of a toy show where FansProject were showing off their Ultra Magnus City Commander armor, and also a couple of their own favorites, a dark NEMESIS version of the trailer, and a Diaclone Powered Convoy colored version.

I think FansProject was reading our thread here, because many of us wished they would produce one that we could order and looky at what shows up-- a pre-order for Shadow Commander Trailer Set!!! Shadow Commander is limited to 1/2 the number of sets they made of the regular City Commander Set, and is priced at $89.99 set for a late December arrival.

This set is meant to go with the SDCC exclusive Nemesis Prime, a black, grey, and teal repaint of the Classic Optimus Prime mold.

Thank you FansProject!!!

Blackmagnus was probably so excited about the preorder that he forgot to post it. I'm sure he's dancing somewhere because of this. :lol:

I'll make my judgement on this once my City Commander shows up. It looks really good in black though and I'm digging the "sword of fury". Oh wait, wrong character.

I think I'll just copy my comment from the MP Grimlock thread:

"This sounds neat and all...I just don't know if I need a shadow version of the City Commander set. Is that a sacrilege?" :-(

Yep. That fits.

I just ordered City Commander this morning, and I'll be ordering the Optimus Prime/Ultra Magnus classics 2-pack later this week. I don't need this one. I probably won't even buy Powered Convoy either, since it'd cost $90 as well.

I don't care for Nemesis Prime's colors to begin with.

I do like how they link to their own Nemesis Prime listing, which is $22 more than Hasbro Toy Shop. I'd expect stock on that to start dropping any day now, though.

No he gets both. Look at the picture of the parts. The BFG is off to the side of the sword. It's part of the actual assembly of the trailer so they can't not include it. The reason he gets a sword is it's a nod to Black Convoy aka Scourge from CaRobots aka Robots In Disguise. Which I think is a really good homage. I also hope it's a redish pink like Black Convoy/Scourge's and not the black sword that's in the parts picture.

Drat... :-x

I have a general policy against owning two figures sharing the same mold, but this might be an exception to the rule!

I like the looks of this one better than City Commander!

That does look very cool.
But i'm happy enough with my standard City Commander.

Again, glad I cancelled my second commander armor to repaint. CAuse this looks way better that I would have managed on my own. just need to figure out how to rehead him somehow.

No, I didn't forget, I just got home from work and heard the news now. And yes the dancing has commenced!

There is now a figure of my namesake and I can't explain to you how happy I am about waiting to get CC. I've got two words for you my brother...

Must. Have.
