This will probably come as no surprise to most, but CHMS is planning on using the Classics Rodimus KO to produce KO versions of Henkei Wildrider and Shattered Glass Rodimus. Staff member Mach came across the image of the two seen below. You will want to be extra cautious if you're in the market for authentic versions of either of these guys in the future, especially loose figures.

Only my morals prevent me from getting these. Wildrider would be especially welcome in my collection (although ROTF Deluxe Deadend is still good).

I'll probably end up getting the KOs JUST to permanently pose inside the combined armor. Hmmmm.

I think my SG Roddy will stay in Shadow Scyther armor though.

Well, this sucks.

I'm having a hard enough time budgeting for these 2 and now I have to fight the KO market for them.

I'm hoping Takara will fight back and announce and a Wildrider reprint. Exclusive or not, it would be a smart move on their part.

Meh, I have no use for them, but if I were to get them, I'd have to go for the Wildrider version, just to make an "unofficial" Classics Stunticon team. Please let them be like $20 bucks.

So in the wake of Henkei Rodimus RE-release there is no fact of a RE-release of these other 2 figs yes/no, just these KO's? Considering the decent QC with their seekers I hope these have the same quality considering that I might get them...'nuff said! :VEHI:

How does the presence of lower cost alternatives make it harder to buy them?

FYI - CHMS and KOToys have never released a toy that wasn't IDENTIFIABLE as a KO. They alwasy make it on the box and the toy has different details - ON PURPOSE. So it's not like you have to really worry someone will sell you a fake.

Wow two nice looking KOs but...I dont support KOs and I dont plan to support it now or ever...And plus I have no need for repaints.

PS : This can be both great and bad news. So stop saying stuff like "You're wrong this is great news !" or "Dammit this is bad news !"...

For those who are considering buying these, an alternitive website to purchase them from, located in the states is Acestoystore.com. They carry alot of CHMS stuff for KOtoys. I've bought from them and they run a great business. They ship fast and items come well packaged. Im not 100% sure they will carry this but they do carry alot of the KOLD and CHMS seekers.

This news is so great I had to post during my overseas vacation !!!

Thank you Mike !!! You are god !!!

Sorry I wasted 100 bucks on a Henkei Rodimus at Botcon but it's all good...Im all over these !!!

And I must remind everyone that the words "official" or "exclusive" mean nothing in my collecting world. I am loyal to no particular brand. I collect the best and most affordable version of G1 characters. I am very happy for everyone who has been wanting these figures.

I bought a few things from these guys at Botcon. They were awesome folks in person. I'd give them a shot online. I'm really finding it hard to not give in to the cheaper option for Wildrider. He'll probably be the first KO I keep in the collection unless the Gentai version gets silly cheap or Hasbro pumps one out.

KOtoys just recently posted about some fake web sites opening up to rip off customers out there, so watch out. He said only order from KOToys.com or acestoystore.com were real distributors of the KOLD toys, others are scam sites with similar names.

I'm not interested in these two, never was a fan of these repaints. For any figure, except G2 Optimus/Scourge/Black Convoy.

However, I will say that they look fantastic. You really can't tell a difference between the two. At least, I can't.

That's a little scary.
