    I'm in the market for a classics screamer. I like all 3 versions of him just a little undecided. Price has very little impact. Which one do you like best? PM me if you have one as well.

    Duh! forgot to add the poll, ah well. :banghead:

    I kinda ran with the theme when I got mine, I don't have any with chrome anyway so I kept it all the same.

    that and I didn't get the more g1 classics repaint. :lol

    I kinda liked the Ghost Starscream from Henkei.....

    Come to think of it....I think I have an extra one of that too! (gotta go dig him out...where ever the heck I put him)

    Personally, I like the colors on the Universe Starscream. I also own the Classics version that I repainted a few years ago. Never had the Henkei, but the chrome and colors just don't look as good as other Henkei releases.

    I really like Universe Starscream. His colors look great even if the joints on mine are a bit loose. not that him being the only one I have has anything to do with it.....

    My favorite classics starscream is my classics with reprolabels applied. However, the henkei one always looked the best if you're not going to use reprolabels IMO.

    I got the Henkei one because I liked the way it was the most accurate without reprolabels. I love putting them on my figures, but I just thought, overall, the Henkei was the best paint app period

    I'd say Universe 2.0 Starscream for accuracy to the original character, and the Henkei (or KO) Ghost Starscream - the chrome doesn't bother me so much on the clear figure.

    The Classic is OK, but the unpainted face and all that red on the wings and vertical stabilizers throws me off.

    I prefer the Universe 2.0 figure for Starscream. The Classics is standing in atm as Acid Storm's rainmaker partner...

    Universe 2.0 has the best paint job. It's going to be the one getting my coronation upgrade. But, the quality on it sucks compared to the gray one.

    i have the universe 2.0. it is close to cartoon accurate, just a darker blue. he kinda looks underpainted next to the other classics seekers. thats why i like the the henkei with minor yellow paint aps.

    Henkei Ghost is my favorite, but the Universe one would be my choice if you're looking for a definitive G1 Screamer for your collection.

    I have all three also. I like the Henkei one. The Universe one just seems off. The chest almost looks fluorescent orange.

    Grey one had tighter joints and peg holes for the null rays. I asked around, bc both were MISB, and multiple people told me there was a problem with the 2.0 mold and someone even told me something about the mold being degraded form overuse. I don't know though.
