    I got both and when I got my henkei one I thought the chest stood out too much, the logo on the gun bothered me and the face was a letdown.

    But still, it was kind of close to the cartoon megatron, and I was happy with it overall so I was on the fence about whether or not I should pick up the united one, but I finally decided to and wow - I'm so happy I did. The pictures of the United one doesn't do it justice, It is absolutely fantastic.

    I thought the gray on the leg would clash with the metallic paint job, but it really doesn't when you have it in hand

    The only thing I don't like with it is the head, but they did the best they could with the mold, the only way to make the head look better would be to resculpt it

    Get the United one. It's the best looking of all of them.

    Just going from the pictures I've seen, I'd say get United. It looks to be the best and most accurately colored Voyager Megatron to date in the Classics style lines.

    I like the United better, but it's not enough of a difference for me to replace my Henkei version.

    I prefer the way the face is done on the Henkei one, besides that the United one looks better to me.
    I don't have the United one though, just going by the pics I have seen online

    As someone who owns both, I can say with 100% certainty, the answer can only be UNITED. As soon as you stand them both side by side, the Henkei one suddenly looks very cheap and bland.

    United. It's pure awesome. Worth every penny I spent on it.

    In which case get them both! As Morph says, side by side the United looks better than the Henkei:

    I'm sticking with my Henkei over the United. I'm just not feeling it.

    They all said what I wanted to say. Get United and you'll be happy like me.

    I was fairly adamant about sticking with my Henkei Megs. In a moment of weakness, I bought a United one.

    One of the best toy decisions I ever made.

    You can't go wrong with either really. I like the looks of the United one better, but they are both great representations.
    And while when buying an all new one the United is likely to be cheaper, there seem to be a lot of people selling their Henkei ones for "cheap" recently too.
    I'd personally be happy with either, so which ever is cheaper.
    But chances are the cheaper one will be United which will be win/win.

    I have two of each... it's the best solution :D 

    Anyway if you are forced to decide, I'd suggest the United one ;)
