    Metroplex - Chromed legs & rubber wheels for the absolute WIN. I'll definitely be getting this.
    Powerglide - Oh GOD, that looks awful.

    I don't think it looks worse than Hasbro's version, but it sure doesn't look better. At least, not what I had been hoping for.

    Fuckit, I'll just get Hasbro's version and call it a day. I don't like this mold anyway, so I'm only getting one for sake of collection completion. No use spending double on the Henkei version.

    Be warned d00d, he will probably grow on you a lot once you actually have him. That's what happened to me.

    I like Encore Metroplex. Mini bots will go great next with him.

    I think Powerglide looks great. If I can afford it I'm getting this version.

    None of those Henkeis are really any better than Hasbro's for me, Silverbolt especially is lookin too washed out with all that vibrant white. And yeah PGlide is a little more show accurate with all the red but I'm with Draven and Incepticon, still doesn't really do it for me.

    Metroplex is lookin all kinds of swanky though, will buy

    So the "USA Edition" doesn't mean its the same as ours, it means its the version USA wants, lol.

    I dunno, I like Powerglide all right. Though I do wish he were less vibrant, and more maroon/burgundy. That red is pretty eyeball-searing in that quantity. And I could do without the white stripes, as well. Still gettin' him, though. :) 

    Man, I've already got a decent-looking Metroplex, but some of its hinges are kind of loose. Gotta admit, the prospect of a brand new one is tempting... but I'm resisting. For those who are getting him, though, that IS great news that he has chrome legs and rubber tires. It might be unlikely at this point, but I'm really hoping an E-Hobby Metrotitan reissue follows on this one's heels.

    Speaking of Powerglide, any sign of the Jizaitoys set? Wasn't it supposed to be sold at this event, as well?

    Powerglide is definitely too bright of a red for me. For whatever reason, he looks like he's wearing pajamas to me.

    i actually think the Henkei Onslaught is a HUUUUGE win over ours, and while they're not perfect i do think i like Powerglide and Silverbolt enough better to pop for the imports.

    Based on history, "USA Edition" seems to really mean "Do whatever we feel like, but don't bother to make new Japanese-language packaging"

    Can't say I'm all that impressed with either Henkei Powerglide or Silverbolt, at least not to make it worth my money to import. An ideal gee-wun-ified Powerglide (within the confines of a mold that isn't that geewunny to start) would probably be all red, with the exception of gray arms and upper legs and face. Takara seems to have thrown that into a blender, and it's still too much of a red&white plane to really break that streak of red&white planes hasbro's been putting out for me.
