    Please input!

    I am debating whether going Classics Rodimus or Henkei Rodimus.

    If price wasn't a factor, which one will you go with purely on good looks?

    Which one looks better in robot mode? Which better in car mode?

    Or about the same!

    If price wasn't a factor? Masterpiece Rodimus.

    But if I had to pick one of those, then Henkei.

    I started with a Henkei Rodimus, but switched to using a Classics Hot Rod.

    -edit-

    I should probably add that 95% of my Classics collection is Henkei.

    ^^^I am on the other side, I don't really like the chrome as much on my Rodi-Prime for some reason, but that comes under "to each their own". For that part I would check out the feedback thread here and the gallery on Seibertron as they have detailed galleries of the armor on both versions and see which one you like more. The other thing that seals the Classics verions for me is the slightly better overall colormatch with the armor.

    With all of the repeat threads on Protector, maybe a sticky is needed?

    Or the original poster could have gone to the feedback thread, checked out all the pics, and decided a purely aesthetic choice on his own

    I personally have it on the Henkei Sons of Cybertron crystal version. This works very well indeed.

    I would also say don't bother with it on the Battle in Space/Challenge at Cybertron version. The words to describe it are not pleasant.

    I have classics, Henkei and CaC versions and I've chosen to go with the classics...for now at any rate. I MUCH prefer the deco on the Henkei version, but the chrome spoiler is a bit shit really (just overkill IMO). And as you can't really see the main body of the Rodimus figure when the armour is on, I choose to go with my preference of the non-chrome yellow spoiler of the classics version.

    So you think Masterpiece would go best with the Protector Armor currently in production?
