    Henkei Dirge looks like someone needs to adjust the contrast on a 20+ year old picture, too faded looking.

    Not sure why the main article says this is more accurate to the cartoon. The blue and gray of the Henkei (and the tan) is more accurate to the cartoon. The only thing he needs is gray upper legs and gray hands and he's perfect.

    Very excited to get this: like the paint much more than the Henkei.

    Man he looks nice, he will complete my coneheads.

    For some reason even though they were the originals, I have been more interested in completing the coneheads thant the original 3.

    Also the lack of a retail thundercracker was the final deciding blow.

    I think it's that they are just so much different bot to bot and not 100% the same mold.

    I still think it's odd that the gave the last 2 the normal seeker missiles while Ramjet got new missiles that are more "bomb" like to go with him, I think they should have used the same missiles through out the 3 coneheads to get a better aesthetic.

    Well sure - they came out first...but I like them more just for their look. But I have them all and will get this one just to add to my seeker collection.

    This is true :thumb  HOWEVER that's not why I obtained them...I am a seeker junkie - really the only characters I love.

    I wonder if we will get a Generations Thundercracker and a updated Skywarp?

    We will probably see Thundercracker and Sunstorm before Skywarp, TBH.

    I like the overall color of Generations Dirge, but I like the blue stripes on the wings of Henkei Dirge.

    They all had the smaller style missiles on the show. Thrust even came with the same launchers and missiles as the original 3 did for the toy back in 1985. Dirge's cannons were very thin too, not the large ones that Ramjet had. Plus I think they'd look wrong without the Ramjet style wings (like BotCon Thrust looks kind of silly with the big missiles).

    I saw the Generations Dirge at Botcon and I must say the accurate wings are nice, but there was something about the color sceme that didn't sit as well with me, and the botcon dirge's paint app is superb for being a "lazy repaint"

    Still looking foward to getting this, any good g1 homage is a must by for me

    this for sure, i love the black and the brighter blue, makes it look a lot more like the original toy than the henkei one does, and the botcon one i never liked simply because it was a repaint, and not new molds for the wings

    A month away is too far?

    I don't think he'll be out in September as he and Blurr are still like 2 to 3 waves away or so.

    Even though i do collect most henkei version style Transformers, but this one has won me over 100% and the same with Thrust!!

    For Thrust and Dirge

    Henkei = 0

    Hasbro = 2
