    Snarl was $77 shipped and Grimlock was $88
    Both of these are G2
    Snarl is in great condition but Grimlock is missing a tooth, one of the clips to hold his robot legs in dino mode is broken and almost all the crome on his T-rex arms are gone.
    I bought these from the same seller.

    I know I could have goten the G1 dinos for less but I didn't want to end up with knockoffs.

    Also dose any one know how rare the Green snarl is and would anyone be willing to sell one compleat and in good condition.

    Those both are G1. G2 have the green and blue colors I believe. Not sure where you live to factor in shipping but that price seems kind of high for them.

    Grimlock seems a little beat up to be worth that price. I've seen better conditioned ones go for around $60 shipped.

    its possible these could be G2s they were released in the original colors for the G2 line as well and yea I think for what they are and the condition of Grimlock you paid quite alot for them

    There's no way that Grimlock can be worth it for that price. The G2 figure is less expensive than G1 (except turquoise maybe), and not with all that damage. The Snarl price is a bit much, but he does look great.

    You may want to compare your Dinobots with the G2 ones at Fred's Workshop: The REAL Dinobots!
    It looks like Snarl has the tabs on the chrome dino legs, indicating G1. Of course if they have the G2 Autobot symbol on them, they're definitely G2

    While the gray G2 versions are comparable in price to the G1s, those prices are high.

    So then i'v got 2 ideas:
    send Grimlock back, get a refund and wait for another one to show up (which could be awhile)
    or
    get a G1 and part swap.

    Is there any way to tell if somthing is a KO just by looking at the pictures? Like I said I didn't want to get the G1 because I know that there are alot of high quality knockoffs out there and thought that going for the G2s would be safer. And aren't the silver G2 Dinos suposed to be very rare? Because I never see these 2 on ebay.

    Did it describe the damages in the description or at least mention it wasn't in good shape? If so then you can't get a refund because you paid for it knowing the condition.

    Yea, that seems quite high for G2 dinobots in that condition.

    Ebay:
    Unless the seller misrepresented it (saying it was perfect for example), why would the seller take it back? Buyer's remorse doesn't fly with ebay sales. You're stuck with it. You bid, you own it.

    He said that the figure was a C8.5 with desent crome and said nothing about the broken parts. I contacted the seller as soon as i got him because he came the wrong sowrd and said that he'd be willing to give a refund. the broken bits arn't realy that bad I just thought it would be in beter condition with some more crome on his armes.
