Oh. For a second I thought they were actually doing something new.

People should start labeling threads like this with "question". So others don't get their hopes up.

Yeah, and all his add-ons. Just got the God Sword for him too because, really, why not?

It looked good except for out of place shoulders. Their cgi looked amazing, but the head-on line drawing seemed disappointing to me. Although a few were really, really excited for it.

Is this an "original" mold idea by CHMS? Have they ever done anything besides KO's before? Just curious on both counts...

The closest CHMS came to an original mold was an MP sized Galvatron based on Jizaitoy's old mockup.

Well ...parts of their Devestaotr add-on were original. Like the waistpiece and chestplate of their Crazy Devy KOs (probably were in development before CD was finished with the pieces). But those aren't very complicated.

Honestly with the death of KOToys, CHMS seems to have faded into the background. I doubt we'll see this.

I hope not, I still have faith in a Accurate Takara MP Magnus.
Especially with the dawning of OP 2.0

I'm assuming this is the future Magnus figure that X-transbots announced on their site? CHMS and X-transbots seem to be one and the same? Am I wrong?

I didn't realize that there were so many images online of this guy already, it doesn't look that bad, although the headsculpt is a bit funky. But I think that might be their style too? Arsenal Primus has a super simplified/distorted look to it too.

I would say X-transbots is going to try to make this Magnus figure happen, but like others have said the interest might not be there. I just bought a new add-on piece for my City Commander too, but I have both a KO prime and armor, and in all reality it is a floppy POS...so new figure would be great for me, however I'm trying to cut down my spending these days too. IDK?

Hopefully interest will be there on Arsenal Primus, otherwise if it bombs maybe the rest of the X-transbot's future projects like Magnus goes down the tubes with it too? I'm actually interested in Arsenal Primus though, I hope Not-Ratchet and Not-Ironhide get released at least.... I know its up for preorder right now, but you never know what could happen since I'm sure everyone bought IGEAR's instead? Do they use preorders to fund the manufacturing?

Mike from KOToys was behind most of the CHMS repaints, wasn't he? It'd explain why there hasn't been any news since the Sideswipe mold.

CHMS may be decent copy guys, but they're hardly imaginative. All it takes is a quick trip to either TF wiki and you'll find more than enough wacky Seeker colors to please the fandom. Outside of that one mold and you have to use a bit more effort to really hit a home run.

But what is made by CHMS and what isn't? Not all of their products come marked. There's newer KOs of Universe Starscream and Acid Storm ... maybe those are CHMS? They are definately different from the screwed-up-face mold CHMS used before.
