    The Energon or Universe. I wish to get an Inferno for my collection but split between the two.

    ... Universe.

    By a longshot. Even if you don't mean as an incarnation of the classic G1 character, it's still a better toy.

    Henkei.

    But Universe is a pretty close second.

    The Energon mold...wasnt great in its time, and the years have not been kind.

    For an Energon Autobot, Inferno's not bad.

    I know, faint praise.

    Universe. It's actually one of the better Universe molds too imo, he's really neat.

    True, Energon Inferno is probably one of the better Autobots from Energon.

    But in regards to this topic, Universe 2.0 all the way.

    The Energon Inferno mold, with a little tweaking, would've made for a nice Classics Ironhide.

    I already knew about this. In fact, I commented on that thread not long after it was posted. I think you misunderstood my post, though. The mold has been used for IH/R customs (keyword), respectivelly. I just think some kind of retool by Hasbro would've been nice. The customs more or less prove that it would've translated very well. I kind of like it better than what we received...not to say that I greatly dislike the Classics IH/R mold or anything.

    As a general rule of thumb, when you're asking "which line had the better version of _____?" the answer is never Energon.

    Unless the alternative is Armada, of course.

    Energon is seemingly a very underrated line.

    Wow, I was expecting a conversation about BW Inferno vs. G1 Inferno.

    Classics by far.

    I mean, no Energon is the best, honest, I have the Superlink edition for £20 if you want it.
