    Damn, this sucks... Hopefully no one buys this version... Even though it takes awhile to get them from maiden japan, nothing beats the origanal version...

    Damn, I'm a big fan of KO's/ replicas but KOing fan made garagekits still in production is something else. I'm sure they won't be able to replicate the quality Maiden Japan's products have.

    Now wait a minute.... I'm not trying to defend whoever did this - but how is someone copying a fan's work any MORE despicable than a bigger company (looking at you, Igear) copying Hasbro's/Takara's?

    Theft is theft, yes?

    These look to be molded in plastic, which would lead one to believe that they could fill orders quicker.

    The biggest reason why it takes a bit for Maiden Japan to fill orders (aside from that fact that it's only one guy doing all of this) is that his are out of resin. However, his definitely look better once applied to the base figure.

    Even if they were painted, these look cheap and I imagine would stick out like a sore thumb. Not to mention how shoddy the QC may be.

    Then again, what do you expect from CHMS?

    EDIT: Oh, and any self-professed "fan" that buys these instead of getting them straight from the source (MJ) is truly a POS.

    Would be great to hear that CHMS and Maiden are working together on this. Because he has such a backlog. That would be a perfect scenario.

    It's sorta like the dudes that hate original design 3rd Party product because it infringes on IP, yet love their Classics Jetfire and countless TFs with unlicensed alt modes that are taken from actual cars...

    because its ONE persons work being ripped off who puts alot of time and effort into these not a companys work being ripped off that to be honest the ko's would prob not make a huge dent in hasbro/takaras profits as alot of the stuff ko'd is not in production anymore where as he is still making these! thats why it is even worse!

    This is low. I get ripping off HasTak IPs but to steal from a lone guy doing a fan service?? Not cool at all.

    Even IF the QC is there, there is no way they will match MJ's painting skills. The true mastery in this set is in the paint job, which is better than you can capture on pic for some reason. I love my MJ set and support him completely with purchasing at least one of each original product and have stock piled for his future releases.


    MJ imitation is the best form of flattery but I hope these guys flop on QC and paint because this is yoru baby and you deserve it. Plus they are putting out your old stuff and you have plans for newer stuff so you may be able to beat these low lifes.

    After getting my first CHMS product, I can honestly say anyone who gets the knockoff version is getting a raw deal. Maiden Japan puts a ton of work into making his add ons look superb, and the quality is superb. My Wreck-gar looks like he came off the shelf (if the official version looked like the cartoon). His measurements for the pieces and painting are top quality. Hopefully no one buys this crap. CHMS makes some real garbage. This makes me want to put in another order to Maiden, especially after seeing that latest head.

    Wow. This is pretty damn low. I've bought a lot of these sets off MAIDEN JAPAN over the past year. This news blows. Fuck you CHMS.

    Agreed. I recently had to sell my set to pay for Botcon but they were beautiful pieces and you could really tell the love that went into them. Not cool CHMS.

    I wont defend Igear I agree they are basically expensive KO's made for people who wanted a smaller MP01 and needed a ton of cone heads however a big justification of the 3rd party is that they will produce the smaller collectors items Hasbro wont bother with so when a one man company who's already filling orders gets Ko'd by a rival company its a bit di*kish at best

    I have to agree with most the sentiments here that most of the crap CHMS makes is pure junk. They have terrible history of QC on everything they've ever made! from the seekers, there powerglide, even there most recent CD kit was pure garbage with pieces falling apart right out of the box or missing stuff. Don't care how much cheaper they are or if they process there order quicker, I will continue to support Maiden Japan.
