    I have been scaling down my collection over the past year, and I just got to my CHUG collection. I own both sets of seekers, Classics Starscream, Skywarp and Generations Thundercracker, as well as the Henkei versions of these charactors. I need to part with one set for financial reasons.

    So I ask you guys this: which set would you keep, and what would you sell the other set for as a group?

    I appreciate the feedback!

    I'd keep the Henkei versions, just because they mostly look nicer and are more accurate (especially Starscream; I hate the unpainted face on the Classics version)

    I'd keep the Henkei (shocker, I know). I prefer the unified scheme between the three.

    I'd keep Henkei!Scream and stick with the Hasbro versions of the other two. Might not be as 'uniform' or 'screen-accurate', but the Hasbro versions have richer colors.

    Thanks for the feedback. But for the next question, what to sell the CHUG versions for?

    I hate that the seekers are based on that mold... Too short, poorly articulated and the design flaw on the "basic" model will break the tailfins if you keep transforming 'em... :(

    Not sure what the going rate is exactly these days, but Warp is quite sought after. I'd also say definitely keep the Henkei versions, the "classic" ones are all over the map with their paint schemes.

    If you don't mind the slightly less G1-ness of the Classics, keep them. You can make more money selling the Henkei ones.

    I was under the impression that the H in CHUG was Henkei, thus Henkei being part of CHUG.

    I'd keep the classics versions. I'd sell the henkei versions because they'd get more profit money on the secondary market.

    If you're selling for space I'd say sell the CUG versions. If you're selling for monetary need then sell the Heinkei versions.
