    Generally valut goes down a little on the vintage stuff when a reissue comes out. But good condition boxed stuff will still hold value pretty good as those are few in numbers and a high wanted item.

    It is never going to be the same to have a new Bruticus giftset as a unused vintage one...never.

    Marcus knows his stuff, listen to him.

    Ultimately, you've got a MISB Encore giftset and a MISB 1986 (or whenever) G1 Japanese giftset. If you think they'll go for similar prices, you're nutty ;)

    i agree the last 2 japanese, bruticus" sets stickers unnuplied on ebay" sold for alot. one of them the bidding was 48bids auction ending price was 810.00 usd I can never seem to buy one cause people go totally crazy when one goes up for sale! sometimes the sellers even end the auction early so someone else can have it which is unfair to everybody else.
    Thanks.
