    This might be good for me cause I'm in need of an extra Protector helmet. Getting a cheap KO for some extra parts may be an alternative.

    So, is CHMS like a higher-end (not really) Knock-off company then?

    They did make the knockoff Botcon Rodimus and Henkei Wildriders, so this would give them some armor.

    I'm surprised CHMS didn't continue to use that mold. Why not release Clear, Classic and Henkei Rodimus and Side Burn?

    Maybe they can make a Side Burn Protector?

    For those interested, enjoy. I'm not real enamored with CHMS. I've had the Wildrider and SG Rodimus and neither were all that impressive. I also have the classic Seekers in various colors and those are alright but nothing to write home about. Still, this will be an affordable alternative to the real stuff I guess.

    I would like for them to finally make the Shadow Scythe armor so I put it on the Wildrider I got from them.

    Even if Wildrider's arm falls off if you so much as look at him.

    Not expecting much here. As great as new repaints could be, invariably CHMS stuff is plagued with loose joints, subpar molding, bad paint apps, and perhaps worst of all, careless assembly.

    Your absolutly right, and I have no problems glueing that shit together so I can have shadow scyther represented in my collection without shelling out $700 for it. He never will be worth anything near that price point in my eyes. I love the design and character which is why I want one so bad. Yup, very excited for this news.

    May get this if the price is considerably cheaper. Wonder if they will include the targetmaster figure too with it

    If the price is right I may consider this but more than likely I will pass

    This would be great for customs. If only I had an idea of what to use it for.

    KO Shadow Commander I have something in progress. KO Battle Tanker I have an idea for.

    This, I've got nothing. Not off the top of my head anyway. May have to dream something up tonight.

    I hope to get one of these for Shadow Scythe.... Couldn't afford the official version from FP.

    Make one in blue and one true to the original FP Shadow scythe art and I'm in!

    Would LOVE to have armor for both SG Roddy and Wildrider! :) 

    AND!!!!! Armor for the 2 sideburns I picked up... :D

    I find a useful fix to keep any of the Rodimus Mould's arms on is to simply put a little lip of nail varnish around the inner edge of the up at the top edge only and to make sure the ball joint is round and no part of it is flattened. if you bulk up any flat spot on the ball and reinforce the lip of the cup the arm should stay on fine afterwards.

    I got Shadow Scythe and was pissed that it was changed from the art. I wouldn't have bought it if the art represented the real thing. I hope this KO is painted like the art or I will do it myself.
