DIA Commander or Powered Commander full review

DIA Commander or Powered Commander is a 3rd party add on to make Henkei Convoy or Classics Prime to be more beefy and intimidating. It is created by FansProject not related with Takara nor Hasbro. Just from Fans to Fans kinda operations.

Not to forget, Henkei Convoy or Classics Optimus Prime sold seperately. You need to have either Henkei Convoy, Classics Optimus Prime or Classics Ultra Magnus to complete DIA Commander.

I got mine after deciding to make my Henkei Convoy more intimidating. Powered Commander is inspired from the City Commander, and add on to Classics Ultra Magnus to reflect its G1 roots. Other than that I do not recall any canon story line of any Transformers that include Powered Commander.

C01 Henkei Convoy review

It is rather a delayed review for this figure. Photo were taken before the Queensbay Mall Transformers Convention with TransMYians during June. Nevertheless, personally I prefer this version rather than its Hasbro counter part. Ordered it from HLJ during a discount for this toys, was in luck for retail store in my place of residence is over priced.

If you do not know, in Japan and in most area of far east Asia Transformers purist will simply call Optimus Prime in the far east Asia as Convoy.

Autobot is known as Cybertrons and Decepticons is known as Destrons. A bit confusing but you will get the hang of it.

The Hunt for Big Bot

Resisting the temptation to sleep longer on a cool rainy Saturday morning. Waking up as early as 7.30am GMT +8 on the 30th May 2009. On an empty stomach armed only with a camera, drove the car for 20 minutes under such harsh but nice-to-sleep weather to Gurney Plaza (Gurney drive, Penang, Malaysia) for a hunt.

The ultimate prey of the hunt, an alpha male of the group in red, blue and grey. A priced and ultimate prey for all the hunters, nick named Big Bot.

Upon reaching the destination, parked the car in a cost effective area (saving of RM3). Braved through a series of maze and labyrinth cargo lift and quiet hallways to reach Toys R US minutes before the launch. There is already 5 brave souls arrived waiting. And yes they are hunting the ultimate prey.
