    Can't wait to receive mine, look very nice! But something I've been wondering for a while is if Ravage is all black, or if his legs are a dark metalic colors? I can't really see it in the pics.

    I like it, thanks for the review, but that stripe is too bright yellow for me.

    I'll wait for the reprolabels set.

    Does the manga actually have Hound and Cheetor together?

    Looks like a good one, though I am quite satisfied with Universe Hound.

    The vehicle mode looks so much better than my Hasbro version.I still don't understand why Hasbro didn't give us the original U.S. G1 colors.With their
    25th Anniversary G.I. Joe line they stayed true to the original classic colors and look and thats what the collectors loved they should have done the same with Transformers Classics/Universe

    Gotta give props to this Henkei release, I actually like the chrome apps. :O The hood stripe is sooo vibrant though...dunno if it does it for me. Gonna have to look at one in person sometime.

    the gunmetal chrome and metallic paint do look better than silver mirror chrome, that works on some figures but not on others, hound is one of my fave Tf released in a very long time.

    its a toy like this by which i judge others, last years movie toys are looking so bad right now.

    Does the Henkei release suffer from sticky paint?
