    There's only really Botcon '08 Prime that you haven't mentioned. I'd go for Henkei personally, it has excellent chroming and the deco is much better

    Really, I'm happy with my Hasbro Prime. Nice as the chrome bumper and grill are... they stay on his back, so I could care less about it. Only real thing the Hasbro needs is the Autobot insignia on the shoulder.

    the henkei one has a better paint scheme because of the lack of yellow but more paint means more paint to chip and the henkei's more expensive, so i think if your willing to be more careful and spend more money get henkei

    I'm pondering this same question and I'm leaning Henkei. And selling Classics Prime eventually.

    Henkei Prime is beautiful. The silver legs and chrome grill look awesome. Plus it doesn't look like he's got a bright yellow spatula over his crotch.

    Wasn't there a thread exactly like this last week?

    Anyway, I pick Classics. I hate chrome. Even more so when it is put in random spots. Plus Classics is more affordable.

    I love the color of the Shattered Glass Prime. The only thing that turned me off was the cracked windshield lines they painted on him. If the lines weren't on him, I would have gotten him in a heartbeat.

    I like the Henkei look, but I like the Hasbro paint scheme for that mold. If they were both in front of me at the same cost, I'd bite on Henkei. I'm on the fence about eventually upgrading and the trigger will be pulled the second I see a good deal.

    The blue shoulders have really grown on me, though. Tough call in my book.

    Henkei really does a good job with their figures, making them G1 accurate as far as the color scheme goes.

    I may end up just getting Henkei from here on out.
