    I trying to pick which one I should get.... Which one is the better one....
    And forget about the US Classic Megatron because it really is a little ugly with the coloring to me... =P

    They are so close, I'd get whichever one is cheapest. If you don't care about that, then I vote Henkei, I like that one slightly better.

    United all the way, loooooks way better than the henkei. I like it better without the chrome and weird red accents all over the place

    I prefer Henkei to the United. The red paint apps and duller gray makes the mold pop more to me.

    Henkei.

    United is too bland for me.

    But I'll still get it for the sake of being completist. :eek:

    I have the Henkei one and I'm thinking of getting the United one. The red does make the Henkei one stand out more but I like the silver paint and flat black handle/legs on the United one.

    I voted for United Megs. I sold my Henkei one to get the United one. I just don't like the chrome and orange looking paint apps of the Henkei version.

    For some reason I have been holding off on the Henkei one for the longest time. I think the completionist in me is gonna eventually make me buy both of them, but likely the United figure first, I just like the grey they used more, and the lesser use of red/orange.

    However this is coming from someone who actually likes the Hasbro version for some reason.

    Henkei all the way for me. Like some of you have already said, the United one looks a little plain.

    I detest chrome. That being said, Henkei Megatron was the only one aside from Astrotrain and Henkei Convoy to have the chrome placed tastefully. And with him being in better coloration from the Hasbro version, I ended up getting him.

    United Megatron looks a bit plain to me, but no where near horrible. The only thing I don't care for is the white painted face, but that really isn't a deal breaker.

    At this point, get which ever will be easiest, and cheapest, to obtain (which more than likely will be the United one.)

    I prefer United.

    It's a minor detail, but the red on just the sides of the abdomen, induces major nostalgia in my brain.

    The United one kind of looks like he's crying in the second pic.

    The united deco loses the silly eyebrows and chrome, but also sadly loses the paint on the decepticon symbol and some of the nice highlights of the Henkei. So the United comes out just slightly ahead for me.

    I'm really liking the way United Megs looks. If I didn't already have Henkei Megs, I'd probably buy United Megs. I'm not gonna replace a figure I already replaced once though, especially since the differences are fairly minimal. But like I said, if I didn't already have Henkei Megs, I'd totally go with United Megs.

    I like the United version more. Not getting it though, already have Henkei Megs with me.

    I think I'd go with United. Thankfully they're similar enough that I don't feel a need to replace my Henkei now.

    United eliminates all of the unnecessary paint apps and leaves us with a classic cartoon accurate Megatron.
