    Just saw these listed on Taobao and it seems the head has been corrected from the TFCC one. It fits the look much better now. But looks like the head has to be swapped in for robot mode and doesn't fit in the chamber.

    It's a custom, Punch's head is just Sideswipe's with some mods.

    This is not a custom, its the CHMS KO of the TFCC PCP toy. You might be right about the head being a custom that they might have ripped off some designer. But the toy is being massed produced and is selling on many Chinese websites over here.

    So there are two heads, instead of one transforming one, and they have to be removed in order to transform it? Why not just upscale the club head? Surely they are smart enough to take these two heads, and design on transforming head from them? As is, this is a big fat pass.

    Could be the bigger head doesn't fit in the chamber of the toy. Wasn't that the official reason TFCC gave for why the toy's head was shrunk down to fit within cavity in order for it to transform?

    Yeah, but they shrunk it too much. There's plenty of room in there. In fact, there are some heads on Shapeways that the right size and fit in the body.

    looking over this i'm still thinking this is a custom,
    for a few reason
    1) the head
    2) the coloring as kind of a paint gloss to it a plastic color wouldn't have( and chms does better plastic color matching than that, i've reviewed all their seekers)
    3) the arms where the bycep swivel is is yellow inside which wouldn't make sense sense it should be blue like the original that was being knocked off there would be no reason to cast it in yellow then paint it all blue, this is likely a sunstorm based custom

    Just a customizers eye saying

    Do you know when you'll be getting more CHMS Wildriders in stock? I was hoping to pick up this and Punch/Counterpunch from you to save on shipping.
