    I am not sure which version of Ratchet i should get. I like the paint on Henkei, but the price is kind of making me rethink that choice. I know it will be a while until its released , but it will be out before we know it. We've seen pics of both now, so what do u think?

    I'm getting the Hasbro one..but I'm gonna paint it up similar to the Henkei. If I wasn't a cheap bastard, I'd go with the Henkei.

    So Henkei, I guess

    The mold is not worth an extra $15+ just for better paint.

    I plan to get the Universe. I'd also like to find a real cheap way to correct that red piece on the roof. That's my one real gripe about it. The paint on the lightbar is weird, but nothing a fingernail can't fix, I'm sure.

    They are too similar, so I would go with Universe. That is if it were not for that ugly blue paint. So I guess I'll go with Henkei.

    Henkei just looks so 'right'.

    Im sure i can save up for it, but its just such a big difference in price. Ive never owned a Henkei figure, but who knows.. maybe soon.

    I like the Henkei painted wheels but dont like the chromed weapon. I just got the Hasbro one and painted the wheels myself. It will be alot cheaper in the long run.

    Very true man, i guess the question is should we all pay more for slightly different paint and some chrome. I could probably just change the paint myself.

    That looks pretty cool.

    I have henkei Ironhide, so i'm getting Henkei Ratchet to go with him. I will be repainting the head red and the crest white though. Looks better like that.

    $15 is the difference between ugly and pretty. Henkei.

    Universe.

    If you want a Henkei figure, go with Cyclonus or Dinobot.
