    I was just thinking about something. IMO Henkei Skywarp is a total waste. I mean, I can see getting Henkei Thundercracker because he wasn't and never will be released in the states and Henkei Starscream because he's a vast improvement over the Clasics version but, why even get Skywarp?

    You can get a Classics version of Skywarp for alot cheaper than the Henkei one. Where's the incentive to get Henkei Skywarp? The darker purple looks better on the Classics version anyway. Is there anything that makes him stand out? Also, why get Henkei Ramjet either?

    I can see getting Henkei Starscream, Thundercracker, Dirge, and Thrust for the obvious reasons but why the other two? (Skywarp and Ramjet.)

    Thanks for posting!!

    Henkei Skywarp for more G1 toy accurate colors and the chrome. Otherwise, classics'll do ya fine.

    If you want the unified pinstriped wing look of the team, then yes getting the three main seekers in the Henkei versions are worth it. I have the 3 Henkeis, and they look REALLY nice together. As for as Ramjet goes, I'm pretty sure Dirge and Thrust are going to be really geewun, so I would spring for Ramjet, like I am going to.

    IMO, Chrome = FAIL.

    It makes the figure so ugly... I am glad I got the Classics version.

    Now, Thrust and Dirge... I hope they have no chrome! I really do...
    Cause the Botcon ones were so expensive. And to release those as exclusives like that was a slap in the face by hasbro "HAHA! You will never get these at this price!"
    I HATE EXCLUSIVES! Even the ones I can get ahold of, I hate the concept...

    I really like the Henkei Skywarp. Wile the Classics version is perfectly fine and awesome as well the Henkei one is definitely more G1 looking and is pretty much a dead ringer for it. Probably not worth the extra cash if you have the Classics and don't have that kind of money to throw around on a repaint like this but still an awesome toy, I sure dont have any regrets :)

    unlike starscream, the hasbro skywarp IS very nice...however, look at comparison pics and u'll see, imo, that the henkei one looks a bit better...more show accurate at least...i really like it, and the 3 seekers definitely go well if theyre all henkei..
    cant wait for henkei thrust and dirge now :D

    Fortunately the only noticeable chrome on Skywarp is on his missile launchers and exhausts (and that is dark chrome).
    Sigh.
    Do we really need to reiterate yet again how Hasbro saw Classics as a filler line and had no firm plans to continue it at the time that the BC07 set was decided on? I mean, really?

    The chrome is hardly noticeable on that mold.

    Underneath the chrome there is probably nothing but the color plastic the toy was molded with..

    To me he's worth it. Much better looking than the Classic. For example, the underside of the forearm is painted black so in jet mode it's solid black behind the intake. That kind of thing goes a long way with me.

    Why get Henkei Skywarp? Because he looks way better than the Classics version, that's why!

    And I like the chrome use...

    Imo he's much nicer than the Classics version. I prefer the purple rather than the pink. I just bought one off Ebay for $50 shipped :D 
    The Classics two pack would probably cost me that so it aint too bad
