Here's a video review (not by me) of one of the most amazing third-party TransFormers items I've ever seen: the FansProject "TF-Parallax City Commander" trailer/armor for Transformers Classics Ultra Magnus:

What's particularly impressive about this item is that it is not made by Takara or Hasbro, but instead comes from a group of fans in Hong Kong. The engineering is amazing on this, and it really demonstrates what is possible with modern prototyping and manufacturing tools for small groups.

Mine's on the way. I'm REALLY looking forward to this set; FansProject will also be releasing a "Shadow Commander" set in December for this year's SDCC TransFormers exclusive, Nemesis Prime, which ends up being the dare-I-say SEXIEST TransFormer I've ever set eyes on:

I always did have a thing for 'bots in black. ;D

Wow...that's fantastic!

Do you have all of the various permutations of Optimus Prime (and/or Ultra Magnus)? I'd love to see a full set of all the different versions of him/them together...

Damn, that's a *fine* looking Transformer. To bad I'll never own it. :(

Well, the plain cab is still available for retail directly from Hasbro:

If you decide to order I can probably dig up a code for 20% off, so LMK.

Not sure what their policies towards Canadian orders are, though.
