I'm conflicted on which to get. Both look great but I just can't decide. Opinions?
Chrome for the win.
Henkei for me
I'm getting both, but the Henkei version is the one that will eventually be displayed permenantly. Universe Hound will just be a placeholder until the better version is released.
I'm sticking with Universe
Henkei. If the Universe version was the only one available I wouldn't be buying that mold at all. Same with Cyclonus.
Henkei. Comes out in like 2 weeks and will be the superior version, period.
Chrome for the lose.
Really, just ask yourself if the Henkei version is worth paying 2-3 times more for a $10 toy.
To save on shipping for Cyclonous Henkei, I'm getting Hound Henkei to accompany.
Henkei fo' sho.
If you are willing to spend more money, get the Henkei version. It does look a little better in my opinion because the colors are more in tune to G1.
The Henkei version may in fact be suprior, but other than abruptly trying to end the discussion with little to no more information than 'it's Japanese', why is the Henkei version better? Have we even seen final pictures of the Henkei version to back up its superiority? (asking...I really don't know.)
Really not a problem for me tho, as the area in which I lives the prices for both Henkeis & TFUs are more or less the same
Henkei Hound FTW... although Universe Hound does have a unique green and a G1 cartoon accurate Ravage...
For a Henkei, that isn't too bad, but I still think the Hasbro version is the better one. Especially when you compare the two Ravage's to each other. That and the chrome, like pretty much all Henkei's, is completely pointless. Though I personally find chrome pointless to begin with, and the only exception is with RID figures.
The henkei pics were posted a few replies below yours, but so far, with the exception of Jetfire and Bumblebee, all henkei releases appear to be better than the universe versions. They appear to be more finished, kind of like the case of Alt Prime versus Binaltech Prime. It has nothing to do with the fact that they come out in Japan
I always go with the Universe version of this line because (a) I don't like the chrome on Henkei and (b) any improvements in deco that might be present in the Henkei versions aren't worth the extra price. Concerning Hound/Ravage specifically, I actually like the deco on the Hasbro versions better than the Takara release.
Strange you say that, I always thought the chrome was completely randomly applied on RID figures.
Myself, I think I'll pair Universe Ravage with Henkei Hound.
