    holy mother of...!

    Very nice, but I'll still stick with my Classics ones. The only Takara repaint I'm looking forward to seeing is Powerglide. I might buy him over the Classics one, depending on price...

    Ah, nice. I think I'll at least get Henkei Jetfire and use him (sans armor) as Skyfire. Ramjet looks a little dull compared to his Classics version though...

    I'm really not liking any of the Henkei repaints except Megatron and Astrotrain. The paint aps are too plain, even if they are more G1 accurate.

    I don't know what to think of Ramjet yet. I love the toon-accurate color scheme, but it's a shame that despite the bright red used for his distinctive wings, this doesn't really help with such a drab robot mode. Even though he seems to have more white parts than the Classic version. I'm weirded out by this.

    Skyfire is a definite no. More toon-accurate or not, those new colors are far, far too boring. Definitely not different or "improved" enough to warrant importing, unlike maybe Prime or Megatron (haven't decided).

    Hmmm only thing useful on Ramjet would be the wings to swap onto the classics version... other then that... Meh.

    I Like the smaller cockpit window repaint looks more Skyfire might have to do that on mine...

    Hmm. Interesting. I figured they would use red plastic for Ramjet's wings, but I sure didn't see the white feet and forearms coming. It's not really an improvement... I think the Hasbro version looks better.

    As for Skyfire, I was wondering what they could possibly do to make it look different or "more G1", since the U.S. version was already fairly perfect. Painting the upper cockpit... interesting choice. And not a good one. I'm also quite surprised they left the forearm launchers black, instead of making them completely red. They must have already shared a mold with the other black parts, thus making it impractical to mold them separately in a different color.

    So, now that I've said I prefer the Hasbro versions of both of these, what am I gonna do? Why, purchase them anyway, of course!

    I have a sickness. :(

    I'm with you too.

    Still have people championing the whole "HASBRO SUCKS TAKARA IS DA SHIET" attitude with Henkei though, so far anyway.

    I may be in the minority, but I am really liking the henkei paint schemes compared to classics. I like both, but the takara version just seems more subtle and "real world" with less stripes, outlines, etc.

    The skyfire is cool, but the ramjet looks nice.

    It's too bad Ramjet's so plain cause it fixes my main complaint about the Hasbro version, the wings are painted the right color on both sides. It doesn't look like it would match the shade of brownish-red the Hasbro version uses, either, so no wing swapping

    They're pretty cool, but a little plain for me, I might get Henkei Jetfire because I don't have him though.

    YES. I'm picking up Skyfire. He may have less deco but he's cartoon accurate.
