Which one should I get?
I'm want them cheap and I'm not looking to combine it with power commander?
I own the Henkei one. I think most people like the color scheme for Henkei better. That said, I think there might be some who prefer the Classics color scheme. In the end, you've really just have to compare the two and make your own decision.
Well, you just answered your own question by saying you want it cheap.
I prefer the Henkei, but it seems like the Classics version is what you want.
Henkei is best, but good look finding it cheap.
Henkei. Even if it costs a few dollars more. It's THAT much better.
Henkei hands down. I had the Classics one first when it came out and was so glad I switched.
Henkei is better for bot mode, Classics I like better in truck mode, the red paint match the plastic better. And I swapped the chrome bumper so Classics is even better in truck mode
Overall I'd choose Henkei though if I had to pick one, as the robot mode matter more that the alt mode.
I'd go for Henkei, not because its better or anything but because you'll actually find more of them floating about on the aftermarket or in retailers. Henkei Prime isn't "rare". In fact it got a re-issue about a year(?) ago so there are bound to be quite a few of them. Classics is harder to come by I think. Some guy tried to sell me his Classics Prime and Jetfire two-pack for over 300 local currency. And for all that yellow paint and a rubsigns gimmick I'm not fond of, wasn't worth the asking price.
i'd go with the Classics one cuz it's cheaper. I've been looking for one on and off, but I don't have the fund to buy one right now.
Henkei. Though I have yet to find one $40 or under.
I had the Classics version when it first came out. I then got the Henkei and sold the Classics without hesitation. I vote Henkei.
I have the classics one but the henkei isn't really that much more and has the more convincing prime paint job
Maybe you should considered your Powered Commander set. I think the "DIA Commander" set leans more to Henkei use with the chrome while the earlier releases of the set are more in-line with Classics Prime. I think.
i love the chrome, so go with henkei, either way though you won't be dissapointed
Henkei. More of the classic deco we all know and love.
And just to clear things up. Classics Optimus ain't all that cheap. It was when it was first released compared to Henkei Convoy, but that was back in 2006. Henkei Convoy was released in 2008 and got a second production run in 2010. You'll likely find them for cheaper MISB. Naturally, loose Classics Optimus' will sell for cheaper since they were initially bought for cheaper.
henkei, classics is great in the tfcon armor, but out is kinda plain
I use my Henkei one for display and my classics one to fiddle with. I think I like the classics one just a little more though.
Overwhelmingly henkei IMO..
Grab the Henkei one. Better color scheme overall (least amount of yellow) and if you don't like chrome it's only visible in alt mode.
