    Since the original thread appears to be missing I'll ask my question here. I am in need of three more Combaticons (Vortex, Swindle and Blast Off) to complete my Bruticus. I would like them in good condition but 100% complete.

    Am I more likely to complete my G1 Bruticus cheaper by hunting for these three figures or by buying the reissue set?

    You should be able to find them for less than the Encore set. I bet the reissue will result in a glut of partially complete Bruticus parts on the market. That's what usually happens.

    For less than BBTS' pre-order price of it, you could score a loose, complete, vintage bruticus. and it wouldnt run the massive risk of suffering from mold degradation. Hasbro worked that mold hard, my urban camo ruination set is a floppy mess with very few sharp details. and the mold was used one more time after that.

    Unless Takara is using a new mold for this reissue, I'd say avoid it completely.
