Henkei Ironhide or Henkei Hound?
Henkei Hound. Spending more on this mold is more worth it than spending $20+ on an Ironhide mold. Just my $0.02 cents.
Hound. The Ironhide design is pretty damn terrible IMO.
well henkei ironhide looks better then universe but im leaning to hound casue im gonna get henkei ratchet and universe ratchet... buth then again i have universe hound too...
flip a coin. both are better than their universe counterparts so it's win win.
I would get Ironhide. Henkei Hound is really nice, but Universe Hound is just about as nice and costs half the price. Universe Ironhide on the other hand is total failure, but the colours on the Henkei version make it look not half bad.
Hound, he's a better mold than Ironhide.
I'll eventually get Henkei Ironhide over Uni, but the mold just doesn't do it for me. Like you I'm getting both Henk/Uni Ratchet.
you got a point
now im leaning to ironhide because hound is almost identical very little differences so most likely ironhide now and universe ironhide will go with universe ratchet and henkei ironhide will match with henkei ratchet.
i love henkei hound, its one of the best figures i own.. and its also one of those figures where henkei did it near perfect.. and that mold is wonderful
Universe for both, save some money.
I agree with this. I'll buy a duplicate mold for the character (ie, I have Universe Prowl and Silverstreak, and plan to get Smokescreen), but I'd only spend the money to get an import for one of em.
I would get Henkei Ironhide. U don't need to spend more on henkei hound, just get the universe Hound he pretty nice already.
Hound is the shit. Ironhide is just shit.
Hound for sure
Just get both. That's what I did.
I'm with this, as I have the Hasbro version of each myself. Ironhide takes nothing more to fix than a silver sharpie, a couple minutes, and a little bit of not following the transformation instructions (which I never use anyway).
Hound is just awesome in itself, whether it's Hasbro or TakTomy, but a great toy on the cheap is just win.
Save some money and spring for Henkei Cyclonus and Ratchet like I am!
If it's purely based on individual molds and which make the cooler figure, I'd go with Universe Hound. He's nifty, has Ravage, and the paint job between the Henkei and Universe isn't that much different for Hound, so I don't think you lose too much unless you're anal about chrome and/or only buy Henkeis for the Classic line. Ironhide's Universe figure has well-known issues but at least Universe Hound is still a good pickup at a decent price.
If you're only buying Henkeis...I guess it's a tossup. I have both and like both. Ironhide is the first real G1 Ironhide, though the vehicle mode looks odd with all the random lines running throughout the toy. It looks a bit better in robot mode to me though to save it and mine doesn't have the Smurf-face problem, and his weapon is more imposing than Hound's (Hound's gun looks almost like a blow dryer) though Ironhide's still a bit bulkier. However, Ravage makes Hound a two-for-one, especially if Takara/Hasbro ever gives in and makes a Classics Soundwave then he'll really come in handy.
Hound. His mold is vastly superior to Ironhide's, IMO.
