Though if this one holds up, it IS a good G1 likeness. Though personally I like the more stylized version that the CC set came with.

Man, if iGear's products look half as good in person as they do in the pictures, they're going to find me to be a HUGE fan of theirs...
That said, as beautiful as this head sculpt appears (MUCH more-so than that "other" recent monstrosity) I still love the default head City Commander came with and have no desire to change it...If the set is cheap enough I might conisder it for the missiles (if I like the way they look)...But I'm not holding my breath...

but props to the shooter -- he does have that original bitch-ass G1 look to him like he's about to cry. nice work.

That makes as much sence to me as the company knocking off the Cliffjumper add-on pack in white for BugBite.

I purchased the other upgrade set. My head did have the joker smile, but I am told they will be sending me a replacement. I figured it would be worth it for the G1 gun and missile launchers. But, let me tell you, those turned out to be total CRAP as well. The plastic is very brittle and cheap. The gun broke the first time I tried to put it into Magnus' hand. The missile "fins" on the head of one of the red missiles broke after just handling it casually. The plastic for the guns and missles is totally crap. If you look closely, it has small bits and chunks of other colored plastic pieces and lint. Completely worthless.
I kind'a feel sorry for the seller. It sounds like he wants to do the right thing but completely blew it when he chose his supplier and failed to enforce any quality control.
If the quality of this set is good, then I will probably buy it. I actually like the original city commander head, but I am a sucker for anything that pays tribute to G1.

Agreed. This looks so much better than that other set, even if they're planning on replacing that first hideous head. I may cave and buy this if it's in the 35 dollar range.
