Anybody else but me think that Botcon Dirge is much better than Generations Dirge.

    I think he displays better because of the legs and wings, the colors, basically everything about the figure.

    A matter of personal opinion, but I think Generations Dirge is the 'definitive' version on account of having the correct wings & deco (between BC, Gen and Henkei).

    Thrust, yes, Dirge, no. I love the wing mold on the Generations Dirge, it is a great update to the G1 character. I will say that I like some of the color choices on the Botcon version, and he does look more "evil" for some reason to me. Good figure, but if I had to choose one, I would go with the Generations version.

    The wings alone make me disagree with this assessment.

    Generations Dirge actually has Dirge's wings.

    I agree - in part. I like the use of more black on the BC Dirge wings. I like that Gen. Dirge has 'real Dirge' wings, though they come off pretty big and awkward in robot mode (both the main wings, and the canards sticking out from around the back). If only they had a fold-back joint like on the Ramjet wings.

    i own both and like both for different reasons...botcon dirge has a more sinister looking alt mode plane wise...the standard g1 dirge form in plane looks straight winged and akward...the swept wing design of botcon dirge makes a better alt mode...

    but going with strictly g1 accuracy deco wise...generations dirge....

    i got both variants of generations dirge...correct and incorrect decepticon symbol versions...and botcon dirge...and like all of them.

    RE: Generations Dirge: Sorry, probably been asked before. Variants? What are the differences?

    I like the paint aps on Henkei's wings, but the colors on the Generations body. Overall I prefer the Botcon to the Henkei, even if the Henkei's wings are cool

    nope. blue gold and black ramjet isn't dirge to me, an extra wing pivot would have been nice on the generations one, but not required. the generations one is definitely my favorite of the three, i like the paint apps better than the funky henkei ones

    Don't have the BotCon Dirge myself, but I'm not caring for it being a simple Ramjet redeco. G1 Dirge was a Ramjet body with new wings. And I have Henkei Dirge which is a Ramjet body with new wings.

    Perfectly happy with my Henkei/Gentei version.

    Blue Ramjet? Botcon Dirge isn't Dirge. Just a blue Ramjet. When I think Dirge I'd like to think about the accurate Generations one.

    Generations all the way, I prefer the G1 cartoon-over-G1 toy in the accuracy department
