    Gentei.

    I'm only getting Generations Thrust and Dirge for some possible Five Faces of Darkness based repaints.

    Generations. I briefly owned the Henkeis, but I sold them because I felt they were terrible purchases at the time.

    I'm going to customize them so they look like a cross between the Botcon and Henkei versions. I'm currently giving Thrust a few paint apps (face, chest turbines). I'm also replacing the missiles with a pair from Ramjet and paint them to better match the gunmetal gray of the figure. I'll do the same with Dirge.

    I was lucky enough to be able to pick up the Botcon set but I definately will be displaying the Generations versions just cause I hate being so cautious when transforming the Botcon versions.

    Like I said, I'm aiming for a look that's a hybrid of both the Botcon and Henkei Thrusts. The Botcon version had black Ramjet missiles. I just like them better than the null-rays. Makes him more uniform with Ramjet.

    I'm not a pedant when it comes to cartoon/comic accuracy, nor am I implying that you are. To me, it's more about what looks better on a certain character.

    Since I don't own the other versions, I will be displaying Gen Thrust and Dirge when I get them.

    I've got to get Skywarp and Ramjet now, and make a custom Tcracker or buy one of the KO Tcrackers.

    Generations. The Botcon versions and Henkei versions are still too expensive for me.

    Haha, that's true. But is not being able to afford something because you have a limited budget not honest enough? Just asking.

    If I was being cheap I'd stick with the Botcon versions I have, since they were free.

    The Generations Thrust and Dirge figures, as they'll be the only Classics styled versions of the characters I'll have.

    While I voted all six, really it's just Botcon and Generations.
