    I like it! I'll have to kick G1 Dirge out of the squadron, but I just got ROTF Dead End, so they can go hang out in some dark corner and be miserable together. :D 

    I'll miss the cone articulation and alternate wing position a little, but that's not so bad. The Classics Seeker is a really nice design.

    Meh, I like the Henkei a lot more. Too much black on the Generations version.

    Wow. Other than the nekkid underwings, the Generations one is WAAAAAAYYYY better. So glad I didn't spend money on Henkei Dirge and Thrust now.

    Love it! Sorry Botcon Dirge, but your mass release brother looks a little better. You will always have a special place in my heart though.

    No way Jose, I happen to like forking over $12 for this version. In fact, I'd almost rather pay Botcon prices for Generations one than $12 for the Botcon one.

    The Generations one is alright but the Henkei and Botcon ones are MUCH MUCH MUCH better IMO.

    Yes....I love how the black and gray contrast each other throughout the figure. It offers a nice little uniformed look to him.

    I understand your point I just feel that the Thrust in the Botcon set had a remold done on it to represent the G1 look. The Dirge was just a lazy repaint, I would figure if they bothered to remold Thrust's wings why not Dirge?

    One thing I like about the Takara versions on Thrust and Dirge is that tiny little paint application on their head that makes the cone black all the way around and not have that little square of color where it should be black.

    Generations blows Henkei/Gentei away. Even the Botcon one pales in comparison. Generations really sticks to how he looks in the cartoon.

    Also it's funny that this is the only picture of G1 cartoon Dirge that I could easily find on the interwebs.

    As much as G1 accurate, the red stripe clash too much with the blue and the brown of the wings. The black is nice over the gray, but there too much of it. But still quite nice for those that didn't get/couldn't afford the Botcon or Henkei version.

    I'd bet the majority of those stating they like the Henkei/Botcon versions better have already purchased one or both at a cost significantly higher than $10.

    I'm glad I didn't fork out the $$$ for the Henkei version.

    Funnily enough I still like the Henkei version better ( I already have it and the Botcon one). I actually like the gray and the blue on it!

    Thrust on the other hand was a clear case where the Generations version is the best so he replaced Botcon Thrust in my "main" classics display.
