for the record, i do my homework on anything im unsure of before i even consider spending the money. especially due to price these things command.. which is something i had to get over quick. you like it, want it, got the dough, no point in complaining about the price.

anyways, i have a handful of chms seeker KO's: yellow sunstorm, rainmakers, and air warriors(x3). and im actually so happy with them that ive got a few more on the way: orange sunstorm, black/gold death starscream, and a black chrome starscream. honestly id like three more air warriors too.. but when i spend to much money on comics and tfs the bank calls to ask where my mortgage payment is.. jerks..

and for original 3rd party stuff, i have a warbot defender. which is an amazing piece of robot. ive also got some knight morpher choochoo primes on the way, and im buying a hercules next month.

Image

they look good and my problems with them have been minimal. i think theyre all worth it.


funnily enough i've got a KO Knight Morpher! it's the Ultra Mag Coloured one

Im a big supporter of KOs. I have too many high quality KO's to name, mostly classics stuff though. I like CHMS because they bring the good repaints to the people out there who are less fortunate with their income. Just because I go to Botcons and spend a ton of money with online retailers, doesnt mean Im a greedy collector that wants to have the most exclusive collection in the world all to myself. KO's give people the chance to own really cool figures at fair prices. And the also give us a chance to own some repaints Hasbro will never make like the Rainmakers.

Talk about a necropost. This thing's just a few months shy of being a year old.

And yet my feelings are still the same. Dinocasettes, CHMS Seekers ... that's it.

I don't know if I've just been lucky but my Knockoffs have been awesome, no major issues. Here are a few. I admit that I don't have many more KOs than these other than a hanfull of seekers and one or two others but so far so good.

odd how some people who dont like kos are making posts here....

If you want real good kos that have been worth it and have been decent quality then it these

chms ko seekers - thrust dirge ramjet skywarp thundercracker starscream and all the ghost variations.

Chms Ko Battle tanker - almost idential to the original

chms punch/counterpunch

chms shattered glass prime


HALF AND HALFS

Chms Ko city commanders - any = this is obviously a hit and miss. There great but the shoulder pads just never stay in

chms shattered glass hotrod - mine was alright but some people say the goatie isnt complete or that his arms pop off, easy fix - varnish the ball joint

chms wildrider - again same issues above


generally speaking if its a chms product its alright. Anything else and your kinda risking it alittle

I've been darn happy with all my chms seekers, as well as my TFA Arcee clones.

As far as the seekers, I got several at the same time I got takara versions of the mold, and the chms versions were all better fitting with tighter joints.

Go figure.
For Sale:
Classics Magnus/Skywarp 2 pack MIB
Classics Devastator MIP
HA Sideswipe K-Mart exclusive color Loose

Currently looking for:

If you mean me, I don't like KOs in general (and especially 3rd party KOs), but that doesn't mean I'm fervently anti-KO.

There's a difference in saying "Yeah, I don't think it's that great, but I got it anyway" and "this sucks and I'll never, EVER buy it; damn it and everyone who buys it all to Hell!"

btw just so were all clear on this - ALL the sg ko primes are ALL done by chms who kotoys owner happens to be a part of. Even the newer model is still a chms product its just kotoys mainly sells on taotao now because of all the hasbro bs they got
