    Yeah, the Generations one is a ton better. I see his landing gear nipples are folded out, just like in the stock photos we saw yesterday. Dirge must be feeling chilly.

    Looks gorgeous. Way better than the Henkei version, IMO.

    I absolutely love the Generations version so much more than the Henkei. I'm so glad that I didn't throwdown for the Gentei versions of Thrust and Dirge.

    I've got the Henkei version, but I always liked the jet black detailing of the Botcon version -- glad those black details are getting used on the Generations figure, very nice looking.

    It's like a hybrid of the Botcon and Gentei versions. I prefer it with a black face, but that's something I can easily take care of.

    Agreed. The black and the color details far surpass the grey and lack of paint apps on the Henkei version. Patience pays in this case.

    This is what the Botcon version should have looked like, and not the Ramjet repaint we got.

    This is a must buy, He is much nicer then the Henkei one who seems plain in comparison. I do think it's a little odd that they went with the chrome cockpit for Thrust but not Dirge. Would have made them match more.

    I like the black on the Generations one but, I prefer the paint on the Henki wings better.

    Holy crap. I've never looked at the Botcon Dirge close enough to notice it was a Ramjet redeco. That kinda stinks :/ Still a cool looking figure (that I am now looking at) but just... not... right.

    Bring on Thundercracker and Sunstorm damn it!!

    Specifically, I like that the Henkei version has paint on the bottom side of the tail wings. This means you get to see some paint on ankle wings in bot-mode instead of just the one solid color like the Generations version.

    Oh well. Can't win them all.

    I still want to say I like the Henkei one a bit more. There's something about the blue on the Generations that doesn't sit well with me. It needs to be either darker or muted with a hint of grey (more like the Henkei blue). I prefer the black that's on the Generations rather than the grey, but it seems off against the bright blue. I also don't like the use of black plastic on the wing flap and the arm hinge. Those four black spots on his back don't look right in alt mode.
