I may see if I can't get that foam, though.
Although, along with **** Kommander, I got CHMS Punch/Counterpunch. And he's actually pretty good. I was going to make a seperate topic on that one later, after I examine him a bit more.
However, I felt the crapitude that is the blue Kold Convoy and the KO City Commander set he came with together was so spectacularily bad that I felt it deserved it's own recognition. Especially since the Kold line was supposed to be high priced exclucives. I read the reviews, so I wasn't surprised, but it's still pretty sad.
I was equally impressed with my CHMS G1 Breakdown. Only thing you may notice is that in their mold, they got the holes wrong if you wanted to fit the engine piece on the robots back in “Sunstreaker mode”. The engine pegs are too fat and the holes are too small. Even the pegs on an original Hasbro engine piece are too big for the tiny holes. They have to be filed down if you want them to fit. I guess CHMS overlooked this because all 4 of their KO’s are designed to be displayed in “Sideswipe mode”. And for Punch/Counterpunch, the engine piece becomes part of his gun.
I have had my fair share of duds, but like I sad Mike took care of me whenever I had an issue. Whenever I needed a replacement, I requested that he “test” the new figure by transforming it and checking for the issue I had previously. That always worked when I got the replacement. But QC wise, my blue convoy was pretty much spot on. It did have one Autobot symbol faded slightly pinkish, but not too bad. I didn’t complain because it was meant to be displayed in the FP Armor. If you ever need insight on a KO before you buy it, hit me up. If it’s classics themed, Ill be the first one to buy it and take one for the team.
