    I bought both of them because I thought the green one would represent Moonracer and the blue one would represent Chromia. Is that acceptable? Or will I catch flack if I don't refer to the green one as Paradron Medic?

    Why would you catch flak? Call them what the hell you want. I have Universe Overload, and call him Flak, coincidentally.

    If anyone else wants to tell you the 'right' way to enjoy your own toys, they automatically have a bigger problem than you being concerned about what they might think. :) 

    Me, I'm semi-patiently waiting around for CMHS to churn out a KO-cee in the Botcon Minerva colors. (I'll furnish my own antennae if I have to)

    I just discovered these, I am definitely going to use these two as Chromia and Moonracer

    How is the quality on these by the way ? I am about to pull the trigger and buy them.

    Wish they would have done Arcee in a little more PINK version and perhaps a red one for Firestar too. too bad we cant also get head remolds

    I have them and I call the Paradron medic one Moonracer. Have been thinking I should remove the cross on her head..
    Then again in animated maybe Moonracer IS a Paradron medic! Just a thought..

    I repurpose a lot of Transformers, like Overload as Flak just like Dansproject does, Cybertron Evac as Classics Blaze Master for example.

    Yeah me too. Really wanting a Botcon Minerva version from CHMS.

    I would love CHMS to do a few more myself. Minerva, Firestar maybe Nightbird. The quality is pretty good for a K.O, at least mine are. The leg joints are a little bit loose on mine but that is all the bad things I can say and that can be fixed... or at least it could if I wasn't so lazy.

    good to know, I just hit the buy button on I offer, a seller there has them mint but no packaging for $34 ( including shipping to Japan ) and since I am just going to be giving them to my 5 year old for his b-day I didnt need the nice box that CHMS has them being sold in

    What's CHMS?

    Googling it turned up "Camels Hump Middle School" ... don't think that's right.

    I was interested in the quality of these too. I saw that the paint apps are barely there on the none Arcee one? Do they even come with swords?

    They were intended to be Paradron Megic and Chromia, but your use may vary. I call them Joan and Marie.

    Sort of surprised no 3rd party groups have made a more G1 accurate style head or a headmaster/daniel head

    the toy quality not bad as like most CHMS stuff. The paint apps could be a little more sharper as there's a lot of blurry areas when it comes to the edge of the paint apps.

    They have made a G1 head for Arcee. Its just that it doesn't look good, being a G1 head on an Animated body

    I just googled the head upgrade, I think it looks great to be honest, better than the animated one.

    but all sold out and even if it wasnt already sold out, its would be WAY to expensive for my taste to buy it.
