    or just get the classics?

    Edit; I couldnt find feedback on henkei electro disruptor ligier. Would be interested in hearing your thoughts on him as well. Thx.

    I prefer the Classics version, Henkei looks too bland.

    I have the henkei version and prefer it. I like the richer colors and prefer it without all the decals.

    Personally, I'm happy with the Classics version.
    But then "better" is entirely subjective, anyway. Which do you prefer the look of, and do you think it's worth whatever it's going for on the secondary market?

    I like both. And there is maybe a $15-$30 gap between the two on ebay. I got a thing for japanese releases but I can say no to some figures. This may be one of them.

    Henkei all the way.

    Chrome spoiler is more G1 accurate.

    I preferred the Classics myself - the Henkei chrome spoiler's more accurate but he looked plain without the sponsor logos. Either version's worth picking up if you get the chance though, it's a really nice mould with tons of posability.

    Does it even matter which one to get? Both versions are equally costly. :redface2:

    i have both and there are are pros and cons to them
    the classics version seems to have more paint apps for the smaller details (and the grey exhuast tips
    but the henkei has a better blue color to me and i liked the chrome on the rear spoiler and a more cartoon accurate deco

    im not dissapointed i picked up the henkei one but i think they are 6 in one hand, half dozen in the other really

    I prefer the Henkei version, the darker shade of blue and chrome look really sharp and personally, I feel like it goes against Mirage as a character to have all those advertisements (on the Classics version) all over his body.

    I voted Henkei, but its really a close call.

    I have both and there is not alot of difference in them. Some of the other henkei releases are leaps and bounds better than the hasbro version, but mirage is not one of them.

    I have henkei in bot mode and Classics in carmode ATM, but not that long ago I had it reversed, there really is not much of a difference.

    The electro disruptor liger is awesome as all heck though. I cant speak for the KO version, but the real version is great.
