BUYER BEWARE! KO CHMS CLASSICS SUNSTREAKER - UPDATED

Whilst browsing 3rd party and KO specialist website Chimungmung I came across this little beauty.
It appears 3rd party KO specialists CHMS have done it again but this time with our old friend Classics Sunstreaker.
This is currently listed up on Chimungmung.com for the pricey sum of $32.00 with $10.00 shipping. This seems a little high for a KO of a now tired mold but could be worth a drop as he comes with a sexy yellow shoulder rocket launcher!
Check out the pictures below for some classic 'Streak loveliness!
* * EDIT: ADDED NEW PHOTO WITH KO STREAK TRANSFORMED CORRECTLY - WE NOW SEE THIS CHMS KO TRANSFORMED AS IT SHOULD BE WITH SHOULDER MARKINGS IN PLACE!

A quick peek at ebay shows me the price on this is ... comparatively decent!? When did this guy get so pricy!?

Well, I just got CHMS Punch/Counterpunch and the quality was actually good. It has some flaws, the worst of which is the head coming off when you try turning it, but it's overall much better than any of the Seekers I got. So I'd say this is a good alternative to the official version.

The shoulder launcher is of the Gears of War 01 set.

Maybe I drop the cash on this and a Sideswipe to make myself a Patriot and Tigertrack. That is if I fail to get a decently priced pair at AA.

This is actually great news. Ive been looking for a Junk Sunstreaker to kitbash and the originals are getting to be stupidly high, collecting dust on e-bay. This may help bring down the prices. Or at least this one will go down in time. But just be warned, on the KO mold, the engine block does not fit behind the robots head in "Sunstreaker" mode. (car roof as chest, hood as back) I have the G1 Breakdown version. Whats also funny that they chose to KO the Hasbro version instead of the henkei with a deeper yellow and chrome spoiler and gun.

This price might be a lot more reasonable. I've bought from him before and he is great with shipping:

Well spotted KungFuMan!
I havent been on iOffer for a while now so its good to see these are being made available through other sources.

Im on the look out for a Classics Skywarp and its up for $24.48 inclusive of delivery which for a KO isnt too bad in my opinion (around £17ish)? :-?

Hi, how long did the seller take to reply to you after you made your paypal payments, cos it has been a day and i still got no word from him after making payment.

Took about two days before it was mailed, best result is to email him directly through the address he lists.
