    Even if I did not like the toy, at the end of the poll Hasbro shall stand and Henkei will fall due to the crappy chrome on the dinosaur.

    Hasbro Grimlock, no contest. The deco is much much better, and it doesn't have any pointless chrome on it.

    And Henkei Grimlock's chrome is indeed EPICALLY pointless. Get the Classics version.

    Hasbro Classics Grimlock. Better yet, neither!

    Energon, Animated and Masterpiece Grimlock FTW.

    Don't invest in the Henkei. In my opinion the mold is sub par in robot mode, doesn't do Grimms justice. Buy a loose but complete one, or trade for one here on the boards. It displays nice in T-Rex mode, but not worthy in bot mode. If you are a discriminating collector, or a scale freak, you'd be better off investing in MP Grimlock. Pricey yes, but a sound investment, and a much better figure in both modes. He will actually be the first MP I buy, I'm that impressed. As for Classics, meh. I have a loose/complete one I would be willing to trade.:2c:

    Honestly... Grimlock is probably the only Classics figure I've been really disappointed with.

    If money is an issue and you really want this toy, get whatever version is cheapest. That includes Overkill.

    If money is not an issue, look at pictures.

    If you dig the Chrome, Henkei is the way to go. Dino mode is his better mode anyway, and I think it looks pretty cool with the chrome.

    If not, Hasbro has the better bot mode, and that would be the way to go. If you want a balance between bot and dino mode, Hasbro is the way to go.

    Personally, I think Overkill is the best looking use of the mold though.

    that's funny, I have all four of this mold, hasbro, henkei, shattered Glass, and Overkill, and they really don't look good until you get them together.

    1st one i got was hasbro, I was sooooooo disapointed with the character, put him back in the package put him the closet that same day.

    then I picked up Henkei later. the chrome isn't that bad, but the Henkei looks better than the hasbro in Robot form, more G1 like paint on the bot.

    then I picked up Shattered glass. I thought I would like him better than the first 2, because the dark colors look good on him.

    Last I picked up Overkill, now if I absolutely positively had to pick a winner for the best paint job on this mold, i would probably have to pick Overkill. standing by himself, he looks the best, plus I think he's a little tighter then the other 3 and I got them all new. maybe they touched up the mold when Overkill was painted.

    Now all that being said, they look much much much better when you get them all 4 next to each other, something happens they just all look 300% better.

    But in the end I'll have to pick Overkill for this mold, and MP Grimlock for your classics Grimlock :D
