    I wonder if the launcher on one side was just exposed to more light in-package than the one on the other side, and if that contributed to the asymmetrical brittleness.

    Nah, the other side feels brittle, but the piece wasnt stuck so allows minor movement with extra care

    I have seen one in different colors, but I am unsure a KO of what it is.

    That’s what it was reminding me of. Was nagging me because it was so familiar but I couldn’t place it.

    Could be an undersized KO of the oversized Rhamadanthus.

    Well, seen how it seems like I'll never get a Netflix Soundwave are there any 3rd party options for a nice cartoon style one that would scale ok with WFC stuff? I have MP and hoping to get the new core one when I find him but I just don't have anything in between... literally G1 is about as close as I could use I think lol.

    That is a KO of the Prime Beast Hunters Hun-Gurrr. He's the torso of a legion class Abominus. There have been a bunch of KO versions of the set of them.

    People who have said Prime Hun-Grrr are not precisely wrong, but actually this is a knockoff of Go! Dorara. Dorara - Transformers Wiki

    This is Prime Hun-Grr in GO! colors. The alternative head is for combiner mode.

    I was not aware that CHMS made so many figures. Impressive.
    Does anyone know which Starscream Ghost KOs are 'indistinguishable'/hard to distinguish from the official ones? In terms of figures and packaging.
    I know the Henkeis are infamous because of this, but I was not even aware that CHMS did a version of the EHobby ones. I have tried to look online but I cannot find pics anywhere.
    Can the eHobby KOs be distinguished from the original exclusives from Ehobby? packaging? figure quality?

    Thanks in advance!

    No, when Sirtoys lists a 3rd Party figure under the correct name, they are the authentic product.

    There are some rare exceptions where KO versions of 3P figures exist, but they are identified as KOs in the description, so there should be no confusion.
