Wished TakTomy would use colored chrome instead of regular chrome on Henkei...

    I know they used it on Grimlock, but I think colored chrome would be more appropriate than some of the chrome locations they have been putting on their Henkei figs (cough-Galvatron-cough).

    Galvatron could have benefitted red chrome on the abs and maybe a dash of purple chrome here and there. But if I remember right, the abs aren't a seperate piece? Oh, NVM. :drunk

    I wish there was no chrome... I dislike chrome, but I love the Henkei paint schemes.

    Tasty gold chrome is why I got a Henkei Rodimus, but other than that, yeah, it's actually a detractor from most of them. Well, doesn't much matter to me anyway, only other Henkeis I've got are Megs and Wildrider. I try to keep to the Hasbro versions of things just on the principle that buying domestically is much easier. Except in extreme cases of Hasbro suckage like Energon Vector Prime and Energon Voyager size Starscream.

    Yeah the only place where the Chrome truly works in Henkei is on the grill of Convoy, that looks ace, but otherwise there isn't really much call for it even if the paint schemes are generally better.
