    Im trying to decide whether to buy Faith Leader or Henkei Prime to use as my classics Prime, the things that i cant decide because of are the doors on Henkei Primes arms and its wind deflector thing. And the height of PP01 whether it scales well and the materials its made from, is it cheap and textured?

    Your opinions please

    I like the pp-01 better than the classics prime mold. Classics obviously fits the aethetics better but pp-01 scales better. Overall I just prefer pp-01 over classics....but that's just my opinion.

    Classics/Henkei Optimus Prime/Convoy.

    Fantastic mold. I like to think of him as reventing the wheel.

    Henkei.

    I can only speak from my own bias, but putting Faith Leader in there seems kind of forced.

    I'm of the opposite mindset...

    I LOVE PP-01 Faith Leader (looks great as a scaled-down MP Prime, super posable, material is textured, but it's solid... haven't had any probs with mine; you'll think it's cheap at first because you're expecting diecast); he IS Prime (as show accurate as you can get in bot mode).

    BUT I much prefer Henkei Prime as far as scale. Faith Leader just seems too large. It's decently scaled with voyager & ultra Autobots in your display (except for Skyfire/Jetfire), but simply towers too much over deluxe (the majority of the 'Bots), scout and especially legends figures. On the other hand, Classics/Henkei Prime is a fairly good scale with the deluxe & under cars.

    His "arm shields" aren't that distracting once you have him in-hand, and the wind deflector on top can be mounted on his back, used as a gun, or removed entirely if you don't like the aesthetic.

    Henkei Optimus all the way. Faith Leader is just WAY too big.

    Don't even bother with Faith Leader. Mine fell apart about a week after receiving him, and six months on I am still waiting for replacement parts from iGear. If you value the money you spend, go Henkei. If not, buy Faith Leader and make sure dont touch him. Ever.

    Henkei a million times over. This shouldn't even be a question.

    Henkei even with Igear drama to one side Classics prime is awesome full stop end of question.

    But if you do want a smaller prime and your willing to splash out think about new MP10 convoy.

    Man, I have both, and I LIKE both. I have to say though, Henkei grew on me.

    It also may not be the time to snap on Faith. MP-10 might steal its thunder, and supposedly there will be pics of it soon.

    henkei; he is much easier to come by, cheaper, and fits better with classics, Faith is a masterpiece clone, so it doesn't fit well with classics AT all lol the only masterpiece that MIGHT is grimlock, and that is only because of his size.
