    MP-10 is to big. Igear faith leader is a pretty good fit. But really classics prime goes really well with classics by himself.

    I see your point but i just can't get over the cab panels on the forearms thus the thread. I really can't decide?

    Faith Leader since he isn't as big.

    Personally I just use Henkei.

    Yeah, why not use the Classics/Henkei mold for the classics display? Leave Masterpieces where they belong in their own place of honor.

    For a Classics display? Neither.

    Both figures are straight representations of the character as he appeared in G1, and don't share the concept that the Classics lines have aimed for which is updating the designs to suit more modern aesthetics.

    A couple panels that really don't get in the way of anything really shouldn't bring down what is otherwise a fantastic toy.

    This is where I stand on the issue. I don't see Classics as a straight G1 representation. I see Classics as a modernization of the character, and in this case the Classics voyager is good enough for me.

    I should add that I display the Henkei version as Optimus and have the Classics Optimus as Optimus' clone.

    I also have the Sons of Cybertron Deluxe Optimus playing the role Orion Pax.

    Do you feel the same way about Bumblebee? Maybe you should find a replacement for him too.

    Obviously he doesn't want Henkei, so maybe we should just drop it from the conversation.

    Don't get me wrong, it's a nice figure, but the whole "modern interpretation" argument is a stretch - I've never seen a truck that looks like the Henkei/Classics Prime. It really just comes down to personal preference, and he wants to go with a G1 style Prime.

    I say go with Faith Leader. MP-10 seems to work as well with Classics-sized Autobots, but might be a touch too big in my opinion. Plus, well, expensive.

    Anyway, that's what I went with, and it looks great with Classics stuff.

    That Hoist custom is horrific! The head and back kibble clearly look tacked on. And why exactly does Grapple have Inferno's head?
