Not sure if this is the right place to post this but here's my extremely simple (and rushed) review of the latest CHMS offering: Shattered Glass Black Rodimus as they have been quite a few queries on the quality of this figure. I bought this simply out of curiosity since I already own the original. Just wanted to see how this turns out and do some comparison. (NOTE: Sticky tape used by CHMS is really really potent. Had a hard time removing the sticky residue using zippo fluid, which is usually a relatively easy thing. Note to self: Request for unsealed packaging in the future.) The figure comes with a plastic bio card, blaster & two flame missles (Red & Black). The plastic bio card was a nice touch...however on closer inspection it seems like the text is truncated! Good intention, lousy execution Moving on to the figure itself First thing I noticed was that the figure had problems with parts alignment. After some comparison with the original, it was discovered that the lower torso of the CHMS figure was assembled wrongly which I thought was probably the cause of the alignment problem. (CHMS on the left, Botcon Original on the right) However, after removing some screws and parts and reassembling the figure, the problem remains. Upon closer inspection, it would appear that the plastic used for the canopy is a little thicker than it should be, causing the other parts to have problems fitting and meshing. This problem can possibly be solved with some filing/sanding but I didn't bother with it. Incidentally, while taking the photo, I noticed a crack in the spoiler. Not sure if I'd caused it or if it was already originally there....sheesh.... Other noticeable differences between the CHMS & original would be the paintjob, shade of purple (very slight differences) and sharpness of the insignias. I consider these minor issues though. (CHMS on the left, Botcon Original on the right) (CHMS on the left, Botcon Original on the right) Transformation of the figure was a little scary. Some of the joints are very tight, a common trait of CHMS figures. Everything's generally fine except for the ball joints used for the arms. Both arms kept popping off during transformation and stress marks started to form on the ball joints themselves. However, they don't look like they will break anytime soon. The most disturbing issue I have with the figure is the face (which I assume all other figures will have the same problem.). It looks significantly different from the original and artwork. I view this as the most serious problem simply because the face really looks quite bad with the big nose and sloppy paintjob. It seems the big nose may be a result of mold degradation. I don't know about others but I'm really quite bothered by this, even more so than all the abovementioned issues. Here's how the original looks like. You'll be able to see the difference in the sharpness in features. Verdict: A fairly decent substitute for the orginal figure at a relatively decent price (well, decent if you're comparing it to the price that the original is commanding on secondary markets). Would have been much much better if the manufacturer paid a little more attention to details as I believe most of the problems can be solved rather easily. The face and the arms are the main issues for me but if you're planning to use the figure as the base for FP's Shadow Scythe, then the face should not really matter. Arms may be a problem though. Apologies for the simplistic & rushed review. Hope it helps you in making your decision.
