City Commander and Shadow Commader news
Lately, there has been much info about the recently released FansProject City Commander upgrade set for Classics Ultra Magnus.
First and foremost, Seibertron.com member First Gen has posted full images of the instruction booklet/comic that comes with the set. It tells the first part of a story called "TF-PARALLAX" with its first chapter "ORION". In this seemingly alternate universe story, Optimus Prime and an unnamed Autobot (who looks a LOT like Ironhide) are in ancient Egypt fighting off a tyrannical Decepticon dictator (named "Pharoahtron"). As the tyrant's minions fail, he steps in to fight Prime. But Optimus calls forth his trailer which turns into his armor (which is colored in the "Powered Convoy" version's color scheme). As the armor transforms, we are shown its transformation in a step-by-step format (this is the "instructions" part of the booklet), then it attaches to Prime, who then proceeds to unleash a world of pain on the Pharoah bot.
Secondly, FansProject has put up a clip of the transformation of the City Commander armor onto Ultra Magnus on YouTube. But what makes this clip so special is that it's animated in the 3D CGI style of the Cybertron/Galaxy Force anime cartoon.
Finally, FansProject has given us a preview in the form of several new images of the upcoming Shadow Commander redeco kit for Universe Nemesis Prime/Henkei Black Convoy. They've even revealed how and where the newly added reddish-pink clear sword is stored in both modes, as well as pointing out some of the added retooled improvements made to the figure.
