    Beat me to it. I'd say this Henkei is one of the few figures where chrome is warranted, but the noticeable lack of silver paint makes the colour scheme less vibrant than Hasbro's.

    I don't care for the paint lines on this one. It looks weird.

    And Chrome.... eeeeeeeeeeeeh.

    Ok, I bought the same figure from this guy a week ago, he used the exact same pictures. I hope that he is legit.

    It's nice, but I really don't need him, as I like my Classics Prime just fine :)

    Looks nice, but not nice enough. Good use of the token chrome though.

    don't care for the bright blue headlights.

    Sorry for the "n00b" question, but what is meant by "plate"... and besides the chrome, what makes this so different than the classics release??

    Different paint layouts, different paint colors, different plastic colors. Nothing about it is the same except that they are both inspired by G1 Optimus in one way or another.

    Not different enough to bother with in my opinion (and the biggest problem with that mold is the doors on the arms, looks terrible mis-transformed like that)

    Only mod that would get my attention is what Greyrider (I think) did. Shaving the existing headlights down and making a new set at bumper height. It's a little thing but it really makes the truck mode look a lot more realistic.
