    i'm gonna buy classics. I know a lot of people prefer the henkei cause it is more cartoon accurate.

    Almost everyone is going to say Classics.

    The Titanium mold isn't that well thought out. Whilst it's a matter of personal taste, many would say the Henkei version is rather dull compared to the Classics version, and not worth the extra expense.

    i posted here before but my net wasnt working, i notice...its not here :D 
    i said: i prefer henkei purely for cartoon accuracy, so i got the henkei skyfire...
    but its up to u, u can choose between henkei or classics....henkei if u like cartoon accuracy like me, but classics if u want..well, a bit more color :D

    Of the two moulds you mentionned, the titanium one is the cheapest but not the best. Get either henkei or classics, whichever you can find for cheaper. I got classics waaay back, and will still nab a henkei when I get the chance.

    Well, the Henkei isn't out yet, and the Titanium one wasn't very good. The Classics is the current available one, and after you get it, Henkei will be redundant, so it's an obvious choice, I feel. BTW, it's one of the coolest classics ever, AND it was shown in a comic before it ever came out, also awesome.

    The Titanium version is the War Within look, if that is what you're after. The Henkei version isn't that different from the Classics version. So, save your money and get the Classics version.

    Classics Jetfire was one of the few figures that i never had any doubt buying, or any "buyers regret" afterward. He totaly lives up to the hype.

    I do wish his feet would have been designed a bit better to pull of some better poses, but it keeps in touch will the original figure the way they made him.

    Great figure, and IMO nicer looking than the Henkei version.

    If you want G1 accuracy and the nicest paint job go for Henkei Jetfire, his chrome is limited to the ends of his boosters which actually looks quite nice! good luck :)

    The henkei skyfire has been out for a while. I have both Classics and Henkei, and I think Classics is better. It has better paint apps IMHO.

    Classics for sure (or Henkei if you REALLY want a Skyfire figure). Tit Jetfire is as bad as the majority of the line. The jet mode only looks good from above; he has about three stories worth of kibble underneath. Animated Blitzwing's got nothing on him.
