    I'm getting ready to order a classics Ramjet and I noticed BBTS is selling the Henkai version for the same price people want for the standard classics ver.

    Which one is better? I kinda like the paint job of the regular one better but the Henkei looks like his G1 more.... so which is better?

    I personally like the Henkei a little better, and would have gotten that if I didn't already have the Classics version, and had the option of one or the other for near equal price. But if you lke the paint on the Classics one better, that is the one you should get. I haven't heard any complaints about the QC for either of them, except the one guy who got a Classics one with no face.

    I prefer the Classics paintjob; the Henkei one just feels too... plasticky, if you get my meaning (not even mentioning the extraneous chrome).
    I do have one Henkei among my Classics RJs, and it turns out that's the one with the QC problem. The right-hand landing gear (in the chest) has had the pin pushed in at a bad angle, damaging the plastic on the inside, and stopping me from being able to open the wheel for jet mode. And because it protrudes out a little on the inside, it butts up against the arm and stops the jet mode closing properly. I can probably fix it, but haven't got round to it yet.

    Classics. G1 Ramjet didn't have no stinking chrome. And to be honest, the Henkei is a little dull.

    henkei is better..and henkei figures are usually better in quality, not that i have both ramjet's to compare...from the pics ive seen though, i like henkei's one better...
    general rule of thumb: if ur into cartoon accuracy, henkei's the one for u..
    EDIT: and of course, if u think chrome 'stinks', ur not gonna like any henkei figures...if u DO like chrome apps, like me, u'd love the henkei version :D

    I'm really going to have to ask what you're basing this on.

    I prefer the classics ramjet to henkei because the wings on the henkei version have this super saturated red color that doesn't appeal to me. Plus I like the different paintjob on the classics, the henkei one just looks boring.

    Yeah, that's pretty much my thoughts. While I usually like the Henkei schemes more for their 'G1 accuracy' I have to say that Henkei Ramjet looks boring and the red plastic they used gives me a migran headache when I look at it... burns my eyes too. It's kind of boring in comparision too.

    It's one of the reasons that I'll probably be passing on the upcoming Universe Starscream as well... the scheme is just really boring compared to the original... even if it does have a silver face.

    Definitely get American. Jetmode tampos definitely look better and there is way too much white on Henkei. Don't get Henkei just cause it's Japanese. Haha

    I prefer the Classics version, but like the Henkei version as well. I've had firsthand experience with bad quality control on my Ramjet, but I wouldn't consider that to be the norm.

    Best of both worlds might have been the Classic figure using the red coloring from the Henkei version.

    well im not really talking about paint jobs, as thats gonna depend on personal preference..but based on wat i have, the quality of the figures themselves has been consistently high on henkeis and not so on classics..thats wat im basing this on....then again, just my opinion n my experience...

    exactly wat i said..its up to u to choose, bro..if u find the g1 character looking quite boring, the classics should be better for u ;)

    I agree with you completely. It just comes down to how much you care about him looking G1. I have the Classics version.
