    I just got nearly a whole set of TF G1 Marvel comics from a buddy for my birthday.

    I know that I'm going to have to part with about half of them since I've already gotten them.

    But my question is about which I should keep? Direct vs. Newstand ones? Is one rare than the other?

    Also, could someone give me a definite answer on which is which? Barcode vs. picture (I tried searching but never got a clear answer)?

    Thanks in advance!

    Picture is the direct edition. In terms of values neither is rarer than the other. You should keep the ones in the best condition regardless of edition , which generally are direct editions.

    I miss the picture direct editions myself. Bar codes fug up the cover IMO.

    This is what I did when I finally completed my collection. Pick which ever version looks to be in better condition and get rid of the other.

    KA, what issues are you looking for?

    Thanks for the answers... sounds like I've got some work to do.

    I know some pages are more yellowed than others.. so those duplicates are out.

    I'll be posting the rest that I don't need for sale in the junkion maybe tomorrow.

    Thanks again!
