    So i grabbed these off KOTOYS...chose the package-less option..since i do not keep boxes.

    They arrived well packaged in that squishy foam like wrap and everyone's fun--cheap styrofoam.

    all three seekers came with the henkei version of launcher...chromed silver...

    [​IMG]
    all are painted decepticon symbols on the top and bottom of each wing...and a small decepticon symbol on the nosecone of the jet.

    They have spectacular joints...nice and crisp and tight...the fists do have the super hard to swing out syndrome like reported with KO sunstorm...



    otherwise they all form the alt form nice and clear lines with no gaps in the legs like the earlier KO's...the chest plate locks into place firmly in robot mode.

    the chest has silver paint apps along with silver and dark red paint apps along the wings...the eyes are painted red on each seeker...and there are black paint apps on the seeker arms and in the upper shoulder area...

    The clones are a perfect niche filler for a seeker collection...fighting dark guardians...no so good.... :)

    Do these have the same eyes as the yellow one? As in none at all and just painted detail?

    If you tip the tails back so the bump is behind his leg then they don't fall over anymore which is a handy thing to note to stop them shelf diving as doing that effectively gives them the ankles they usually lack..

    One of mine has a mis-assembled missile launcher so it won't hold the missile (...if anybody knows how to fix that?) and they all seem to have an issue where the left foot won't fold all the way down in robot mode, making them a little tricky to stand.

    But still, they're awesome, they look phenomenal and its awesome to have a generic seeker army.

    Also! They eyes on mine have no molding, just red paint on flat surface.

    I just force the left feet down on my CHMS seekers. The left hips always seem a little loose on these. Easy fix. But those left fists are much too hard to flip out.

    There are definitely some drawbacks with stiff joints since it's a KO but overall this guy is awesome. If you have Henkei Skywarp he's basically the same color scheme with the purple and black switch out and some red thrown in.

    In case you're thinking of buying one, I got it from daelite20 here: http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/items-sale-trade/365312-chrome-seekers-chms-ko-seekers-konvoys-rts.html and was really impressed by how quickly it got to me! So impressed that I decided to plug her sales thread!
