    Hey guys, i've heard that Takara has come out with legends class henkei figures. i was wondering, how much better are they then the classics versions? Worth the extra cost?

    The only differences I know of are:

    Wheelie is a lighter shade of orange, and they aren't doing Bumblebee yet, instead repainting him into Cliffjumper.

    I still think the Henkei version of Brawn is an ugly color. I don't care how much more accurate some may think it is. It's entirely possible that G1 was wrong.... :p

    They're not actually out yet, just a lot of us retailers have them for pre-order now. It'll be a few more months before they're released (late April, off the top of my head). Takara's versions tend to be more show-accurate in comparison to the G1 cartoon versions of the characters (something the Legends Minibots were molded to do, but Hasro's paint jobs kind of gloss over some of the detailing for that).

    And as noted, they have Cliffjumper instead of Bumblebee, since they're not big on redoing a character sometimes if they already have a perfectly acceptable version in the same toyline.

    Comparing the pictures of the Henkei ones to the Hasbro ones, I can honestly say I thinkt he Hasbro ones are better. Though for some of them there isn't a huge difference. Wheelie is possibly the worst one of the Henkei versions. Looks kinda like the Hasbro one, but it's been sitting in direct sunlight for way too long.

    We haven't heard of one yet, though I wouldn't be surprised if it did eventually happen.
