Which one do you think is better? Im not sure which to get.
I've got the Henkei, but the gold chrome is horrible. I do think the flame pattern on his hood is better than on the Classics, though.
Henkei of course!
I have the Classics version and love it, although the Henkei looks awesome as well. Although personally I prefer Classics since the flame pattern on the hood works better with the rest of the vehicle mode.
I prefer Henkei myself, but if you don't like the chrome spoiler another option is to buy the Universe version and add the reprolabel update set for a more g1-ish look. http://reprolabels.com/Classics/Classics/Mapchotrod.jpg
I voted for Henkei. The paint apps is superior to the Classics one and it really resembles the original G1 version.
apart from the chrome and the g1 decos, are the red and orange plastics different shade in both versions?
I guess I'm in the minority here, but I much prefer Classics Rodimus. Sure, Henkei is more G1, but G1 Hot Rod was, well, pretty tacky-looking. It's mostly the orange hood that does it, though the ridiculously blingy chrome spoiler doesn't help either.
To me, Classics Rodimus is just more classy-looking with the red hood and gold flames. He's honestly what I think G1 Hot Rod SHOULD have looked like.
But if G1 accuracy is your thing, definitely go Henkei. These days, Henkei seems to actually be cheaper to procure, as well.
Henkei, for the gold chrome
i need to get a set of those labels. i was going to vote Henkei, b/c i think the flames are more G1-ish, but I definitely want those labels now.
I had the same dilemma earlier this year, but the henkei one is so worth it.
Henkei definitely. Also I saw something about an upgrade kit for Rodimus but not sure where I heard this.
ye, thats the sole reason im getting this figure. well....and because he looks good and i dont have him
Buy whichever you can get cheaper. It's not a mold worth dropping serious money on, and if that upgrade kit does come out, prices could go through the roof.
It wont matter when the Rodimus Prime Armor comes out. So I say Classics since its cheaper.
I voted henkei. I found this thread very helpful when I had to make such decisions too.
I think Rodimus is on page 2...
WOW!!! looks miles better on those pics and when you see them side by side. Henkei it is!!!!!!! bring on the armour set!!!!!
henkei FTW! its more G1 accurate and the bling is nice!
