which one of these are the better for a space marine captain (or any of his equivelents)?
It depends, I usually go with a power weapon to make good use of his initiative but really its up to you and what kind of armies you play against like a thunder hammer would be good if you play against mech armies and a power weapon would be good against pretty much anything else but thats just my opinion.
Power weapon, since it lets him make use of his Initiative 5. You can get fists/hammers around the rest of the army if need be.
If you're playing Ultramarines, take a Relic Blade. S6 at I5 is terrifying.
nah im a dark angel but thanks for the help
Power weapon due to his initiative. If you do go the thunder hammer route I'd recommend getting a storm shield to accompany it.

In regards to the original post, I'd use the power weapon to make use of his high I stat.
I agree, a pair of lightning claws are expensive, for what they do.
