    Henkei Ramjet

    Is it just me or does the red look...too red? Or is that orange?

    Any mods want to add the pictures later?

    Yeah, it definitely looks a lot more burnt orange or almost cherry red than the muted burgandy I would have expected.

    And epic bleh to that chrome.

    Loving my Henkei starscream, but this guy looks like a custom. Terrible custom at that.

    looks a bit too red but could be the photo quality.
    Surprisingly there's no chrome on the missile launchers.

    The deco also looks a lot more boring than on Hasbro Classics Ramjet.

    Excellent. I can't wait to point this out next time someone insists that Takara is always better than Hasbro.

    The chrome thrusters against the red wings look bad...and that's bad not in a good way...

    I do like the grey on the top of the intakes in jet mode though...

    Not too shabby. I'll be picking this one up since Ramjet is my favorite Seeker, though I'm not a fan of his feet being white. But that's nothing a little paint won't fix.

    I like it. Hasbro Ramjet and TakTomy Ramjet almost look like two different seekers.

    I prefer the more traditional G1 color scheme with regard to the wings and intakes and such, but other aspects like the chrome and the white feet, not so much. Wonder how easy it'd be to cobble together a 'perfect' version using parts from both.

    The inside of it, yeah, it does. Interesting. I quite like it, and it's certainly more G1-looking in jet mode save for the silly chromed tails. But it does seem a bit bland.

    First Henkei I will be passing on.

    Don't care, don't remember the character.

    Wow...what was the point?

    Seriously, are they not allowed to use US decos or do they really think that THAT is better or even an equal alternative?

    I've gotta ask: is it possible for Takara to repaint a figure in such a way as people WON'T prefer it? I mean, this is pretty awful. The red wings look terrible and chromed tailfins? Wtf? But there are still people who prefer it. My mind is blown.

    God forbid, people have different taste.

    Or maybe they just have no taste. One or the other, you pick.
