    Why would you sell a Thundercracker so you could get a Thundercracker?

    Unless you just love the Generations paint scheme a billion times better then you should be good with the Thundercracker that you already have.

    Its more about a sense of cohesion than anything else they need to look like a trinity to me why are you focusing on thundercracker in paticular anyway?

    Because you're saying you're going to sell off an exclusive Japanese import simply so you can buy a much cheaper one (without Chrome I might add). I mean, Henkei TC can't be THAT much different from the upcoming Generations version if you ignore the chrome (Gen. Thrust also has a chromed cockpit, so at the very least your TC can look okay next to him)

    I say sell the Hemkei and go for Generations. I'm not a KO hater, but if the official product is readily available, I'd choose that over a KO every time.

    I know, but his other choice was:

    So I think he should buy Generations instead of replacing the Classics with KOs.

    I honestly say buy the generations and keep the Henkei. More seekers is always better.

    don't sell Henkei yet, just buy Generations TC and decide afterwards.

    don't buy KO seekers...i think they are overpriced.

    i love the matching stripes on the Henkei seekers. hasbro need to repaint SW now as i hate the stripes on the classics one.

    you might not get what you want ($$) out of the Henkei figures, so why not just keep the Henkei?

    and really, if the Generations version is teh ahsum...
    oh wait. you're from the UK.

    i was just gonna say, drop a ten spot on an extra TC and keep your Henkei in a special place.

    This ^^ for the most part

    If the reason you are wanting to sell is because your Henkei TC has the (now well-known) QC issue(s) many have reported, then sell but please let the potential buyers know even if you have "fixed" the issue(s) Obviously for this one you'd want to a) wait til you have a Generations TC in hand and can test it or b) sell on blind faith that the Generations will be void of QC problems. Additionally, this is a mute point if your seekers are MOSC.

    If you are wanting to sell to turn a profit for him, then sell cause there are people who are willing to pay because they want the Henkei version but with the announcement of the Generation TC, I wouldn't look for the $150-200 shipped or so he was/has been going for - but then again you never know...

    If you want to sell because you'd rather all your seekers be Hasbro releases and not Takara, then sell for cohesion.

    I personally would stay away from KO's but I'm a person who'd rather have an authentic piece ANY day over a KO.

    Either way, in the end, it's up to you to decide :2c:

    yea; just watch any episode of g1, there were TONS of random seekers around; and normally they were thundercracker's colors anyways lol

    hell, keep the henkei one as your thundercracker; and keep the american one as the "extra" :)  that is what i'd do.

    after all; you already bought the henkei one; and the hasbro one will only be $12 at retail.

    lol you can afford to buy it! if i can! :lol

    Why would you have to get rid of one just to get a $9-12 one? Seriously, keep him. I have the Botcon one and the KO one, and I'll get this one too.
