    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"
    Rainmakers
    Yellow Sunstorm
    Orange Sunstorm
    Chrome Starscream
    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.

    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 ... :crazy:

    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.
