Inferno looks no diferent than the Hasbro version other than the chrome weapon *blech* and brighter red

but Hankei Ratchet looks ten times better than the Hasbro version

The lights are red, he lacks the "401" detail, uses black instead of dark red, and has yellow details on his head.

Painted Rims!!

Interesting... These pictures show the "old" version of henkei Ratchet, with the painted rims and the white shoulders (with a red stripe). The "new" version has red shoulders and unpainted rims. While the "old" version certainly looks better, I think we're actually getting the "new" version.

Vibrant Red GT-R Convoy looks absolutely fab in that pose. It's looking better with each new image released. Glad I ordered it over the Ultimate Metal Silver version which is starting to look rather dull imho.

Can we get whole page scans? Please? *puppy eyes*

Convoy looks really good.

Sadly there's no other TF stuff on the page (or the rest of the issue), just the 2 GT-R Convoys and the 2 Henkei figures.

I really like the looks of the Alternity.

That Ratchet is a thing of beauty. Mine should be in my hand by Friday. Thank God for ebay.

I'm not complaining but if they replace that weapon of Henkei/Universe Ironhide's with a handy tool box (eg: spanner, drill etc) then I'm sold totally!

Ratchet simply needs some surgical tools, no?

Isn't Convoy supposed to be released like, now?

Henkei Inferno will look great with the upgrade kit.

Looks like Hasbro Inferno is darker. Another rare moment when I prefer hasbro over Henkei.

Nice! Henkeis are moving so fast these days. I can't even find Inferno or Ratchet in stores yet.

The next chapter of the Henkei story is featured in this month's Figure King.

Yeah same here, I'm STILL in a state of shock.

These look great. I can't wait to see these in the store though, the Hasbro version that is.
