    Simple question: Classics, 3 Pack, RTS, Henkei, United? Obviously this is for a Classics Bumblebee

    :useless  Well not useless, but still.

    United looks the best.

    I choose United and put that third party Goldbug head on him.

    Come to think of it, I may do that myself.

    Henkei is my favorite one. I still need to buy it. I don't like United because it looks out of place with my collection. He has shiny paint everywhere while everyone else is flat.

    That's a problem with your collection, not the Bumblebee. :wink: 

    I see what you're saying though, and that's probably why I'd have him as Goldbug rather than Bumblebee. The shiny gold-ness would make more sense to me.

    This is how mine are gonna be:

    Bumblebee - Henkei
    Goldbug - United (with Renderform Gold Scout head and weapons)
    Bumper - Classics (with Renderform "bumper" head and weapons)
    Hubcap - RTS (with Renderform "hubcap" head and weapons)

    I'd say Henkei, most G1 accurate, plain yellow, no white or black stripes running through it nor is it super shiny.

    I have no issue with my RtS one, and I like the movie-inspired deco. Because the "accurate" one is boring, and the others are random.

    I just picked up the RTS one, and my only problem with the figure is that he doesn't have a proper weapon.

    I'd say the 3 pack one if you can get it, but it seems to be rather rare, so if you can't, get the RTS one. I really like the black stripes on both, but the RTS one doesn't seem to be as good quality, likely due to mold deterioration. I don't like the Classics one so much, since I don't like the white stripes. The chrome on the Henkei one looks out of place, and although the metallic United one is sort of cool, I think it would only work well in a collection of non-United figures if you got the Goldbug head for it.

    Henkei is the most accurate but the 3 pack deco is my favorite of the bunch. The United is the prettiest. I've never cared for the Classics deco because I don't care for all that white they used.

    Thanks to Renderform/Venskta, I'll be repurposing United as Goldbug, RtS as Hubcap and the 3 pack as Bumper.

    Just remembered, I have the three pack one as well-only thing is, the paint on the chest is a sticky mess.

    Henkei, cause it is the only one I don't own. Like that it is mainly yellow (though the gold is a bit goofy), and that it has the Autobot symbol. Someday, but it is not a priority to track it down right now.

    Henkei is the nicest looking one out there. A nice mixture of yellow, gold and silver.
