J/K. I'll take some tomorrow if I have the time.
Heres my Botcon one. I dont have the Henkei because I have the Botcon.
These will be coming soon
I heard that some of the Henkei where defective, So I'm now glad I broke down and got the Botcon version.
Yeah that does suck but at least we have the chance to own a classics Thundercracker. We just may have to apply some fixes to get them up to par.
Hoping for a side-by-side comparison
Wouldn't you have to be an over the top completionist to want two over priced blue repaints of the same mold
Isn't "over the top completionist" just a long-winded way of saying "Transformers collector"?
Anyone know if the blue plastic on the Botcon Thundercracker is the exact same as the Henkei one?
It isn't, no; the Henkei one is lighter and less metallic looking.
I've gone completist on one TF line, and that was Beast Machines. And yet I have both Thundercrackers and both Skywarps. When I can afford to, I'll get the Henkei Starscream & Ramjet, Universe Acid Storm, and the upcoming Starscream redeco as well. I just really like the mould and the characters.
Damn. Well that, compounded with the fact that Henkei TC costs $75, will deter me from replacement parts.
$75 is better than the $275 to $300 for the Botcon Thundercracker.
Henkei Thundercracker Vs. Botcon/Timelines Thundercracker
*Pic #244 (Comparison Pic #7) shows the one issue I do have that bothers me a bit which are the Launchers that don't stay in his arms pre-fix, but they do stay in his hands (for what I call using them as "Blasters") or in his wings.*
Have you tried reversing the launchers?
Henkei wins for me.
And the QC on the Henkei is garbage.
Let's just say it's not over the top if you're able to pay for them slowly.
Good to see a comparison, but could you take those pics with a better light source? It's so dark that those don't really show off the differences much aside from the really obvious bits like the chrome launchers on the Henkei and black nose on the Botcon one.
