    The last couple weeks I've been able to get my hands on these guys and I'm pretty impressed. I've seen the tight left wrist and ankle joint already being discussed, but honestly aside from a couple minor sloppy paint apps there's few other quality issues to complain about. I already have official releases of Skywarp and Thundercracker so I didn't get them, but all the others are so much fun. I'm admittedly a total Seeker sheep so it's nice being able to get versions of the mold that just wouldn't be feasable for Has/Tak to release.

    Here's a few pictures:

    Only major QC issue I have is the pin for the landing gear on the left side of the black chrome seeker was punched in at an angle so it tore at the plastic slightly and the pin is exposed (as seen in the pictures above). It's really the only thing I've encountered that has been a problem.

    I don't intend for this to be a feedback thread, I know there's a forum for that. I just thought these deserved an appreciation thread. They're totally fun, and I hope they release some more :)

    Got all of them except the silver chrome one, and the Has/Tak released ones, and I love them! Look super sharp. Can't wait to get everything set up later this summer, and hopefully give Grimmy_13 some company in the funnies thread ;)

    Currently watching a few Hasbro Skywarps on eBay, if I don't manage to get any of them I'll be getting the CHMS alternative.

    I got The orange Sunstorm. Not perfect but I'll do. I'm going to have to do something about the white paint however. And his left hand is hella loose.

    That black chrome looks kind of neat. May look into that one when I try for sunstorm.

    I ordered the rainmakers, orange and purple seekers to boaster my 8 seeker (6 + yellow sunstorm and acidstorm), since they need someone to fight the Junkion army.

    This is the only one I have. There really aren't any issues that you wouldn't come across on an official Seeker. I think a lot of collectors look for, and nitpick, every minor detail when it comes to KO's, whereas with an official product they really only mention an issue if it's something major.. like two of the same foot.

    these seekers look really good and can barely spot the differences in the molds. i also have no idea what the CHMS stands for?

    CHMS is a logo you see on the KO Henkei seeker figures and their packaging, it's used to differentiate the so called version 2 KO Henkei seekers, with tighter joints and better fitting than the version 1 KOs.

    Wow with the exception of the gold and silver one, and all those chromed ones, they look incredibly cheap.

    I'm interested in Seekers that have a personality; which means I'll buy a Hasbro Acid Storm cos he's got a tech spec, but I don't care about the other Rainmakers, or the Air Warriors.

    I did, however, order a CHMS orange Sunstorm. If Hasbro ever makes a Sunstorm, they'd probably make it yellow (most of their post-G1 Sunstorms have been), whereas I prefer the creamsicle orange of the original e-hobby Sunstorm, and this CHMS guy is a damn nice fit for that.

    I also ordered a CHMS Skywarp. I already own the Classics Skywarp, so I can be glad that I own the official version. But I really dislike the hot pink on Classics, so CHMS's colors will suit me since I'm unlikely to buy the Henkei.

    I don't have them in hand, so I can't say whether they're great or not, but they at least caught my interest enough to throw money at them.
