    Hound is an improvement of Universe (not a huge one, but definitely there)

    Cheetor falls in the "more show-accurate makes it worse" category for me. That dull gold crap and chromed face ruin it (more than the mold's shortcomings already do)

    hound looks alright, not enough to warrent buying the henkei one though.

    cheetor, though, looks awful with that head! the rest of it looks fine, it's just that shinny head that looks way out of place. and the tan parts instead of yellow, looks ickk to me.

    so i suppose i will just stick with the hasbro ones on these.

    Ravage's legs could use a brighter color... to make them stand out. rather then just make the whole thing look black.

    I made my way up to Akihabara yesterday to where the big toy stores are out here in Japan, and Hound is IMPOSSIBLE to track down. Sold out everywhere.

    Cheetor, on the other hand...

    2009 Cheetor is what happens when you completely sacrifice the robot mode's integrity for a more realistic alt-mode. In other words, his robot mode is a bunch of cheetah entrails smashed together.

    I actually like Cheetor, maybe because he looks a lot like the Beast Wars incarnation, doesnt have a rocket coming out of his chest, has really good articulation and aside from slightly stubby arms, has the best head sculpt for the character.

    Hound reminds me of the Grillz song.....way blinged out.

    I have two questions about Hound. Are the legs any tighter than on the Hasbro one? And, does the gun fit any better on Hound's shoulder?

    This henkei hound w/ silver wheels and pinstriping is nice if your just cruizin in the city, but the universe reminds me more of hounds original character. The Universe version also has two sets of yellow fog lamps which really helps when driving in poor conditions. Green henkei foglights? heh! O.k. maybe if they are Japanese Nightvision Foglights.... cool.

    Did you try the Hobby Base Yellow Submarine shop in the 5th floor of the "Radio Building" near the train station? They usually have cases upon cases of Henkei after each release. Usually for 1800 yen too.

    Its the fourth? floor of this building (same building and floor as the Kaiyodo Hobby Lobby) :

    K-Books and Kaiyodo: Akihabara on Flickr - Photo Sharing! (across the street from Gamers near the JR station in Akihabara).

    Then there is Yodobashi Camera in Akihabara (6th floor). May not be directly in the Transformers section, but could be in the newly released area. Usually they have stacks and stacks of Henkei on the week of release.

    Lambor was hard to find the week he came out too. But if you go where I just told you, I am positive you will find Hound.

    Now if only Hound would come in to stock at BBTS so they could put him in my pile of loot and I could finally ship my stuff. Hound's holding up my order of Shadow Commander, Trailbreaker, Hoist and a bunch of other stuff.

    Too bad Ravage couldn't have gotten his own little card thing. Steeljaw got his own card in my TC Blaster reissue.

    I guess I'm not getting it. I've got some universe2.0 stuff, and I just cant justify spending any more than $7.77 for a universe toy. I like the Japanese packaging, but the toy itself is not worth the extra money IMO. If there was some kind of die-cast action or thicker gauge plastic, or maybe even better weapons or upgraded colors (beyond slight chrome plastic coatings) I could possibly see it, but for just the content of the toys themselves, I see no real reason for me to spend more than what WalMart is asking for the toys at thier stores. ($7.77)
