Excellent thread. Thanks for posting these pics, it's interesting to compare the different paint jobs. I personally much prefer the Henkei color jobs, with the exception of Ramjet's forearms and feet.

Very nice, thanks It is nice to see them side-by-side for a proper comparison.

By the way, you and I made the same mistake with our Hasbro Prowl; we didn't pull his feet out

Hm...Henkei seem to have better paint job. And no, i'm not saying this because the small chrome touch ups. But i already have my classics so..well, actually not Astrotrain, if i have to pick a version of him it will be the Henkei edition.

Yes I do, right now I am trying to catch up on my Diamond busts. Then I will be back on the Universe / Henkei line. I have to get the U.S. ultras yet but I figured I got time since the Henkei version just came out. The wife does not want me to buy anything else until after christmas now but I will post updates in this thread. When I do get the figures.
Is there blue text here ^^^^ If YES ----> Blue text = Sarcasm

I know for a fact that I want the Takara Powerglide, and not the Hasbro one...but I like seeing comparisons of everyone else...

Nice thread this makes a very useful resource. On the whole I prefer what Takara is doing, but thats nothing new. I was interested to see Henkei Prowl has a totally different light bar to Classics (obviously to represent typical Japanese Police lightbars), is that the only instance of Takara remolding for Henkei?

Very nice pics! Thanks! Actually, no, wait, I don't thank you at all! Cause now I want all of these! Anyway, I knew I wanted Megs and probably Optimus, but your pics really sold me on how much better the BB and Hot Rod are too. I also hadn't seen pics of the Henkei JF, and I love that Skyfire deco on him.
