I think I prefer Classics Ramjet... alot. Henkei version just looks boring.

I don't really like that Skyfire, which is great, because it means I don't have to buy it to replace my Classics one! :grin:

I actually prefer the Hasbro versions over these.

Hmmm, that's odd, I actually prefer the US release over the Henkei versions. Goodie, I don't have to spend the extra money. Still, gotta get me Henkei Starscream though.

I can't say there are ANY of the Henkei versions that I prefer of the Classics versions. Maybe Starscream, but that is it. These ones just look boring, not even garish like the first wave.

Apparently not all Japan touches is gold afterall. Lackluster redecos.

Yea, I've gotta agree.

I like the Jetfire, bit not more than the one I've got, and I prefer the US Ramjet.

That said, my Astrotrain is in at BBTS, pile-o-loot here I come!

Skyfire looks great! Ramjet is ok.

Looks like the chrome is on Skyfires thrusters/missles and on Ramjets fins and highlights his launchers.

I like Skyfires color scheme

Not too much of a difference between these and the Hasbro versions.

I also wonder where's the chrome. It looks like there might be alittle chrome gold on Ramjets shoulder sections - the two sections by where the jets nosecone would be.

I like both, they look great to me. I'd choose both over the US versions for sure. But since I stopped collecting Classics figures I'm not replacing my Ramjet and will not buy Skyfire as well... I can't buy all of them :P .

All the Henkei seem pretty inferior to the Hasbro line... maybe with the exception of Astrotrain if he didn't have those chrome boosters.

Lay off the chrome, Japan!!! It's 2008... Chrome isn't impressive anymore!!!

I like the chrome on Skyfire's booster :grin:

Meh, pass. There's just nothing noteworthy about these two. And I agree with the posters who say Ramjet is dull looking.

It's not fair! Those so much more show-accurate than our overly detailed versions. These are awesome, yet we won't be getting them. :sad:

I think Ramjet's alt mode looks sweet.
May have to get that one.

I've never been a fan of Jetfire... Don't even know why.
Maybe this summer I'll get one though, I'll have to wait and see how much Animated is draining my account.

Good eye: Skyfire's chrome is on his jetpack/booster engines (his missiles look like transparent material to me). Ramjet's is on the very back of his tailfins/vertical stabilizers.

I'd consider Jetfire an improvement because of his head but I'm not so sure about Ramjet.
