    Are there any other differences between this and the Hasbro Classics besides the chrome grill?

    Yeah, the Henkei vession does not look like there's a yellow spatula on the crotch of Prime.

    Here are some images I found on Photobucket:

    Classics
    Henkei

    Wow, the preorder for this is already sold out at BBTS.
    I've got Classics convoy, but I've always had a hankering for the Henkei version. Anyone got a Henkei Prime they would like to trade for a Classics Prime? :)

    Hey, I'd be interested in that. Throw in an additional Classics deluxe that I need (I've always had the - perhaps warped - impression that Henkei versions are generally "worth" a bit more) e.g. Mirage, Ramjet, Prowl, Sunstreaker and we'll go from there :)

    No... the one toy that needs to be re-released is definitely Henkei Red Alert. Probably the most expensive one out there.

    Any chance they'll ever reissue Thundercracker, Skywarp, Thrust, and Dirge? I'm kind of guessing not given their exclusivity but one can hope.

    I wouldn't mind one of these if the price is nice. I need another Prime mold to go in the CC armor. Magnus is just too expensive

    you can get Thrust for 10 bucks in a few months stateside and Dirge won't be far behind probably. Not sure about TC and Skywarp.

    IIRC, these reissues were ordered by Hasbro Hong Kong who are Takara's agents in HK. IE they're not reissues necessarily made specifically for the Japanese market...
    They may not be in a capacity to order those seekers at all.(?)
