    they're pretty bad quality. NOT even close and far from the original toys. unlike what the biased reviewers out there said. it doesn't feel like the original and freakin' are crapstastic. i wouldn't recommend these to anyone. i have skywarp and ghost starscream. the nosecones on mine are both soft plastic. the only plus

    Well, personally, they are good quality enough for me. I have the rainmakers, orange, yellow sunstorm, and purple clone seekers, and they have been, aside from the eyes, just as good as the original for me. (at least I can't tell the difference, but hey, its my collection)

    So I will be getting them, esp that TC. It looks great.

    I probably won't be the first one to nab them. I am interested if Daelite will carry them ^^; The skywarp only looks moderately ok. But the thundercracker under light... wow.

    Yes. I have the Henkei TC, SS, and SW as well as the KO rainmakers and purple clones.

    These sound like a cool concept but they dont seem to work as well as Ghost Starscream. They didn't even make most of Skywarp's body translucent, and his purple parts look like they're based on the pink from Classics Starscream rather than the lavender from Henkei. Thundercracker is decent, I guess. Not that it matters, I've got the only Seekers I want already.


    Also, on the typical CHMS Quality debate, I have the Henkei Skywarp and the orange Sunstorm. For the most part, their stability is on par with the real ones. I mean, several of my real Seekers already -have- crappy joints. The CHMS ones seem to have some parts that are better than the corresponding areas on the real ones and some parts that aren't. While they do feel a little flimsy when transforming them, when they're sitting in either mode they seem just fine.

    They are nice aren't they? :D  However, I just wish CHMS would have put more effort in quality control/ quality assurance when making these things. *sigh*....but I may be asking for too much aren't I?

    Aside from Daelite getting them, my other hesitancy would be making sure that the clear plastic holds out well.

    Yeah....same here. After my recent experience with the KOLD Klear ones.....I hope these ones are of better quality. I honestly wouldn't mind if they did what Takara did and NOT USE "clear plastic" wing joints. (I haven't seen the pics of the TC and SW yet)

    I'm not concerned about clear versions of seekers, but I'm looking forward to Slipstream and AM TC (who will possibly look better and be cheaper than the theoretical Botcon one).
