The Macross mold is much better, and even the Classics version is superior compared to the Generations figure.
Kimosabe, you have to actually get a hold of it, transform it first before you judge. You won't be sorry RP. Really! Of course Tomy/Hasbro had to do some modifications with the transform sequence............it floors the henkei version but as stated in my post it's a mix between the Kawamori Valkyrie's transform sequence and the Mospeada Armos type. Fully transformed, the fuselage is almost seamless.
If I have a complaint, it's that we can't collapse the fist into the arm like the original Macross design. In the henkei, it's like Jetfire just flips his arms down (still to it's sides)while this version, the arms are folded into the mid fuselage.
Get it while you can........satisfaction guaranteed!
When in jet form, I go woosh woosh pretending to be him when I engage in fantasy play
My Transformers purchasing habits, here are my following considerations so as not to DERAIL thread discussions:
1. Not hung up or hate scale. MP, Legend, Voyager....I'll take 'em all.
2. Price is indeed a big factor but if its a need to own one even if I have to eat "Scooby Snacks " for a month then so be it.
3. I tilt towards Tomy products over Hasbro because it's got lots'a bling (Legends Jetfire being the exception)
