    So recently my friend was in Japan and he was able to get me a Henkei Inferno. I thanked him for getting him for me but the thing is I already have a Universe Inferno and I didn't want to disappoint him by telling him I already had a version of him. I am perfectly fine with Universe Inferno and I was wondering if I should keep both of them or sell one. What should I do?

    my advice is this look at both of them ( preferably with out taking the Henkei one out of package) and decide if you like them both well enough to keep them both and if you don't decide which one you like best and sell the other, this is assuming your friend , if you sell the one he got you wouldn't be disappointed if you did not keep it

    Then buy your friend a drink or two with the money you get from the sale :) 

    I wish I had both though (only have Henkei), I like it that they have different hues of red.

    Yeah, I have the Henkei displayed up on the shelf for Inferno. The Universe version is down in the garage on my bashing desk, headless and stripped of his gun (it went to the Hound-to-Swindle mod).

    I'm with Zherbus on this: customize one of them into Grapple. Just paint it orange and cannibalize a movie Mudflap crane (should be easy to find in TRU) with earth magnets. :thumbs2:

    I prefer the Universe version simply because Tak/Tom really missed the boat with the chrome placement. Who puts chrome on a firetruck toy and decides NOT to put it on the front bumper?

    Decide which one you least like and use it for a Grapple custom.

    I know some people are against the ladder set (since it isn't the right truck for one), but I would keep both and get the ladder set for the Henkei one and keep it in truck mode in the display. I have yet to pick one up, but after getting Red Alert, the paint apps on both Universe Ratchet and Inferno just arn't cutting it and I "need" the Henkei versions of both to be up to par.

    If I was any good at Mods I may make a Grapple though, but I am terrible.

    Thanks Guys, but on customizing just isn't my thing. The last time I painted a transformer..... lets just say it didnt go so well. :) rip Movie 1 Jazz) But anyway I think I will keep both of them and then try to find someone to make a Grapple custom for me.

    It was a gift, so don't sell it. It would be akin to a slap in the face for some people. Keep the Henkei Inferno and do what you will with the Universe Inferno.

    Instead of Grapple I say: Repaint Universe Inferno into Hot Spot/Hot Zone.
