    I've just got my first good look at the Henkai megs and all I have to say is EURGH!

    I really like nerfatron so much more, the henkai version is just so bland it looks like the mym toys rip off version

    I do like the optimus a lot more than the classic version though

    I'm waiting to see it in person (hopefully at Botcon). I like the chrome in some pics, looks cheap in others.

    I'm REALLY not a fan of the Japanese one. They went so heavy on the red and the red and purple look so terrible together that I think they ruined what a lot of people were looking forward to in this figure.

    You know what all these Classics and Henkei toys seem to be begging for? Parts swapping. For guys like Bumblebee and Starscream and maybe even Megatron, some Classics get certain aspects down perfectly, while other parts are much better on the Henkei figures.

    Even for Astrotrain, I bought a loose Classics weapon specifically to give to my pre-ordered Japanese version.

    I'd certainly oblige if I hadn't sold my Hasbro version.

    Yes, I'm with you as well. I'm torn, I'd like one, but I'm not sure if I'll actually like his design.

    I'm passing on any Japanese Classics. Looking back on the old Classics, excluding BB and Mirage, they were all very meh moulds, but the Japanese Megs looks TERRIBLE with that chrome.

    Megatron Henkai. It almost sounds like Megatron Hentai. Anyways I like it and I am planning to pick it up.

    Ditto on this as well. I am still so blown away by the Classics molds and can't wait to get this to see if it lives up to the rest of the Classics.

    It's light gray instead of dark purple. I hope to have my HenKei figures in a week.

    I'm looking forward to Megatron. The chrome chest may not look GREAT, but it look tons better than the purple chest, IMO.

    one thing i noticed from the pictures so far is that his purple chest logo and his cannon logo look like different colors...if thats true, that almost kills my desire completely...

    The Henkei megatron is amazing, with the correct colors the mold looks astonishing, the problem is if I can find one for a decent price.

    Geez, some places are charging an arm and a leg for certain Classics figures; BBTS has Classics Megatron for nearly $60 right now! At the same time, their pre-order for Henkai Megs is only $45... wow. Still, I'd say go with whichever one you prefer/find most aestetically pleasing.

    Right after classics Megs was released lots of people did great custom paint on him. So when I saw HenkEi Megs it was not exciting at all.
    Even more so since I got Encore Megs. If he's to be silver, he might as well have more realistic alt mode.
