any help with pics would be wonderful
That I know of:
Henkei SS, SW, TC (TWO Versions Available V1 & V2 with better QC)
Sunstorm yellow & orange
Rainmakers blue, green, yellow
Rainmakers (Glow in the dark) blue, green, yellow
Chrome seekers black, gold, & silver
Henkei Ghost Starscream and classic ghost starscream (more g1 inspired color)
Henkei Coneheads thrust, ramjet, & dirge (Also available in ghost versions)
Clear seeker (DIY kit) available w/wo tampogragh decepticon emblems
black & gold starscream, inspired by the ehobby black SS repaint.
I might have missed some, but I think that covers most of them.
Any pictures available?
I think at this point there are ghost versions of all the seekers.
Oh jeez, let's see if I can do this (mind you, I'm not going by what I own but by what I've seen... or at least can try to remember).
Replica versions of all Takara releases (all 6 + Ghost SS)
"Ghost" versions of the other 5
Purple Clone "Air Warrior"
Gold Chrome Starscream
"Black Death" Black Chrome Starscream
Pretty sure the glow in the dark Rainmakers were KOLD "Toxic" and not actually CHMS. DIY kits were also KOLD and not CHMS, if I understood that right.
I just picked up CHMS Ghost Dirge this week for $15 including shipping. Nice toy, but it needs more paint applications. Seems like they only painted the robot mode slightly, but left the jet more unpainted.
I added the reprolabel outline faction symbols, and they look nice showing through the wings.
Search the 3rd Party Reviews section. There are reviews in there with lots of pictures.
That ghost Dirge looks pretty good.
$15 shipped, from where?
Joshua, HOLY CRAP, A buffalo Ny tf fan. We REALLY need to link up and set up a Buffalo TF con this spring/summer.
Chimungmung has pics of some of the CHMS seekers here:
chimungmung Toy Shop
I got it from the ebay store for ii-toy.com. They sell under the names riflescopeshop and d0tm.
I figured as much. Damn, that's a steal. I have the d0tm one saved, but not the other. Thanks!
Yah man,i though clear Starscream is 1 of the better clear figure around nowadays but this clear Dirge has me blow pass,wow
I got my Ghost Ramjet from ii-toy.com for $13.80 including shipping. I added the outline Reprolabels to the wings.
Loads iv'e got over 20 of them and i'm still missing the odd one.
The Non-CHMS red one is rather spiffy too.
I just bought another CHMS Purple Seeker on Ebay and curiously it's not the same as the one I bought a year or two back - this one has lots of painted pieces so the plastic is another colour underneath (some is black and some is orange) and the purple paint is applied ontop.
The first version is all moulded in colour though.
Thought i'd mention it in case anyone was looking to buy one. the 1st version is the better one I'd say as you have no worries about the paint rubbing then.
bought chms dirge and ghost starscream. had to adjust dirge's head, it was stuck. took the torso apart and fixed the problem with sandpaper. starscream was broken in two places and had a lot of cracks. i don't know what they did to the poor guy but he was beyond repair.
won't order with Chimungmung again. i had to write 7 mails to get a refund. in the end, the guy told me to "destroy the figure" and send him a picture of it. only then he refunded me. maybe megatron took over chimungmung to make sure that even starscream's ghost disappears forever ...
They look pretty good but I dont want to be part of CHMS to rape the design of Classic Starscram.
I've got all of them aside from the ghost versions (I think). The quality is pretty decent, not official toy good but acceptable. A few loose joints here and there and definitely sloppy paint apps. The Gold, Silver and Black chromed ones are very fragile as well. But I recommend them to anyone who wants to buid a Seeker army!
I had an appreciation thread with a bunch of pictures of mine in the TF Toy Discussion awhile ago before the Third Part forum split...I'll see if I can find it and post a link here.
EDIT: here you go http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/trans.../375911-chms-seekers-appreciation-thread.html
I don't have pics of the 'Black Death' Starscream on there, I didn't have it when I made that thread.
