    in my quest to narrow down my collection, i'm attempting to get rid of duplicate molds, regardless of whether they are different or the same characters. one hard case is the bout between these two...while i enjoy beachcomber for being beachcomber, he seems to be worth more...and i just really cant make my decision...below are links, just in case you dont know who they are

    Beachcomber looks a lot better in that color scheme than Cliffjumper does. Well, to me at least.

    Beachcomber is a lot rarer and worth more but it's a better paint, so it really depends how much you like the toy itself as Cliffjumper's value is no were near hat of Beachcomber.

    Yeah, I'd keep Beachbomber. I saw him once and didn't grab him, never saw him again.

    But if you decide to let go of Beachcomber, LMK :D

    If you decided to sell Cliffjumper, I'll buy him off of you :D . As is, Beachcomber is the more desirable one. If I was in that situation, I would keep both, but Cliffjumper wouldn't stay the same for very long, lol.

    see, theres another problem...one of my buddies has been asking about beachcomber forever....and thats why i think im leaning more towards selling BC....i do like beachcomber though...and while he's on ebay for crazy money (90 bucks loose) ive seen him go for as low as 30...so, if i sold him, i could always buy one later,possibly....and if they do a classics version, i totally wont want this one at all...

    I'd say keep Beachcomber or sell both. The Cliffjumper color scheme makes me want to bludgeon whoever ok'ed it.

    While I prefer Beachcomber's paintjob, if you're looking at collection-wide decisions, it seems like that blue is a little more common. Cliffjumper might look better on display with the rest.

    And Beachcomber is worth quite a bit more.

    I'm the one who wants to buy Beachcomber from Lumpy.

    So can everyone just start saying Cliffjumper is the one he should keep??
