    My favorite is my classics 2.0 Sideswipe but of the Henkei figs I like my Jetfire, I did swap out the fastpacks, head and the blue chest piece out with a Classics version though.

    If you could only EVER buy one Henkei and the rest all had to be Classics? Just One? Only One?

    Megatron. No question.

    I don't own it, but I'd have to go with Megatron. The deco is nicer than the Classics release and the chrome is actually in a place that makes sense. Dinobot also looks pretty good as well. Other than those two, though, I consider the Classics/Universe 2.0 releases to have a superior aesthetic to the Henkei releases.

    Hard to limit myself to just one. IMO all Henkei releases are superior to their Hasbro counterparts.

    Megatron is the most noticeable improvement; however, having just picked up Hound yesterday, I have to say he is fantastic. Really good dark green (not lime green Hasbro!!) and cool transformation.

    Show accurate Rodimus ftw! Classics chest just looks so wrong (Where the eido11 is his Autobot symbol!? I had to give him a proper sticker to fix it!) Henkei chest is a thing of beauty!

    I also plan to get Henkei Powerglide and Dinobot.

    Megs, Cyclonus, and Astrotrain deserve a nod too.
