With fantastic toys, we want fantastic gear to upgrade these toys. Thus, we see the Cliffjumper upgrade, the City Commander Set, and Shadow Commander sets released. We drool over the pictures of the upcoming 'Gear of War' set, and the iGear Autoscout. We enjoy having a Roller for our Masterpiece Prime trailer, and more!
The creativity and the desire to bring what the fans want make these companies special, but unfortunately sometimes, we need to understand that the quality may not live up to the expectation due to the size of the company making the secondary products and the lack of much of what the larger toy companies have.
So a little reminder, a little warning to us all that with the best intentions, things do not always work out.
Here we have an example. The TCP-001A City Commander Parts set by SGCollect, released this week. A custom upgrade for a custom upgrade (City Commander set), but unfortunately it seems that the quality did not live up to the expectation, at least in one purchaser's case.
First shown here, the upgrade set looked to have a fantastic new head sculpt to add to the City Commander set, as well as, the shoulder rockets, and G1 toy accurate rifle.
Purchasers have been disappointed to find that their sets may not live up to what we saw initially. Just check out the images of a purchased set below.
So while we applaud the small groups for trying to please the fans, we also want you to know that, sometimes the best plans do not turn out as desired, and so be careful when purchasing secondary add-on sets. Read reviews, be patient, and wisely spend your hard earned dollars on your beloved upgrades.
And by the way, these sets are available for purchase on eBay. You can check out the disappointed purchaser's thread here.

I feel the pain of those of you who bought this. At least the other parts look good.

Ironically, this one is #92. I hate to see what #150 will look like.

Although so far, transformer fans have been really lucky, everything from the quints to city commander has been top notch.
this new head looks like it was just melted by a fusion cannon point blank.

It looks like a dog that chased after a parked car and caught it...HARD!
This is the risk when something gets outsourced. Quality Control is left to someone elses discretion and you don't find out the end result until it's too late. However, the company contracted has no excuse for it's lapse in QC.

This is almost the same price like the City Commander set on its own ROFL!!! I bet it was like this ... "I will buy one more City Commander Set, No No No No, I will buy two rockets a crap gun and a melted head instead, Yes that's what I'm gonna do"
Which comes to show have much money people have available to waste on crap customs ...
