    if you could get either one for the same price, which would you take? i dont see much of a difference, but i usually miss alot of details


    EDIT:: one change-the Henkei one has a crack down the middle of the windshield. how could i fix that?

    I'd like henkei, I'm not to fond of the white on him & that chrome spoiler looks nice.

    I was very disappointed by the quality of the Henkei Bumblebee though. I've yet to see one that had a decently painted roof assembly and the one I bought had all sorts of other issues. It's probably not a fair statement but the Henkei felt "cheaper" to me.

    But based upon looks, I do think the Henkei is better with the black thighs and flat yellow with chrome highlights. More G1 love.

    I'd go with the Hasbro one. The white brakes up the blandness of the yellow.

    Out of the two options, Classics Bumblebee, no contest. Has more detail, looks better, and doesn't suffer from RAC syndrome (Random A$$ Chrome). Then again, same thing goes for all the Classics figures, as I'd choose them over Takara's Henkei repaints of them.

    Classics. The Henkei version is way too plain with just the solid yellow, and I have a vivid hatred for all things chrome.

    It's not supposed to be cracked. ;)  Just comparing them if all things were equal.

    I've got them both, and the Henkei one looks far better in my eyes (the quality's fine on mine too). The blue eyes really add life to the face for some reason, and I was never a fan of the half white car mode, and IMO there's too much bland grey on the Classic's version. Making him, yanno, Bumblebee colors (bumblebees are yellow and black, that's why it's his name... :tongue: ) just makes him look a lot better to me. The chrome i'm not partial to, admittedly, but it's not too bad in robot mode due to being down on his legs. All things equal though, I prefer the Henkei one.

    All things not equal, if you don't own him yet and you want him, I'd recommend waiting for the upcoming 3pack with Movie Premium and Animated BBs.. it's got the same black and yellow paint scheme (though the car mode looks like crap), and it comes with Concept Camaro BB, who's just a fantasticly awesome figure. And it's got a 3rd toy in the pack.. and the 3-pack'd probably cost you the same as it would to get the Henkei one.
