    Boo... your asking for photo's I thought you had them in here. I will be getting both of these and I will post some pictures in my thread but that is a couple months away. I spent all my money on a MP Grimlock this month.

    This is one of the guys that i like both the henkei and hasbro versions of a lot. I dig both colors. I got the henkei one cuz i was on a henkei roll. Love him. Bright red, but not too bright where you begin to wonder if it's neon. I think i would have preferred hasbro's clear light caps (flashing light area), but still love him regardless. Face is flawless.

    Sol - love that mod man. Hard for me to justify at this point buying mods since the toys cost so much, but that is a great lookin mod fo sho - can you take a pic and show us what it looks like in robot mode (as in where the ladder goes)? Or is it only for auto mode?

    this is one i definitely think Hasbro go right, they really borked the Henkei version IMO. especially with the chrome placement...

    I love both versions. I could live with both - maybe i shoulda just spent less $ and gone for the hasbro version, but i'm not gonna complain with what i've got. One thing i will note though as i've transformed my henkei inferno - the far back panels that are in chrome, when you fold them out, in truck mode, they don't quite fit properly (the two cutouts on the bottom of the chrome part don't sit perfectly/lock up with the male tabs on the leg. mine just kinda float above it - doesn't affect the aesthetic too much, but still, if people are anal about that stuff, i'm letting you know.

    *edit* - as i look at your pics above, i guess that's the standard - your flaps sit on top of the male tabs as well and don't lock into place (or you just didn't try). I stopped attempting to make it sit flat as to avoid breaking anything.

    Actually yeah I got tired of messing with it. Those things kinda annoy me. The method of attachment isnt very solid.
