    Pretty much the title. I buy a lot of lots, so I end up with a lot of extras and stuff like that. I ended up with an extra Energon/Superlink Devastator. I know one is classics and one is energon, but I don't know which one is worth more, as I wanna' sell one.

    So, if anyone has any information/pricing on these, I'd really appreciate this. I'm just trying to get rid of a lot of this spare junk to make way for the third party invasion coming this year... hell, this MONTH!

    Here's a pic of the two.

    Color blocking on the Energon one seems a bit more random to me.

    But maybe what Foster said.

    If you really want to keep one, I'd keep the one on the left as it looks more devastator-y (A NEW WORD it measures devastatoriness). If you want to sell the more expensive one I'd guess the superlink is rarer?

    Don't hope to derail, but I'm guessing you will be getting one of the upcoming 3rd party devys?

    Do you have a complete set of the classics version? If you sell to a collector, I'd assume that you'd get more if it had all of the original figures that came with it. But who knows, if you throw it up on ebay maybe nobody will notice.

    I'd probably keep the energon set myself.

    Yeah, not sure if you have any more construction limbs sitting around, but as pictured your Classics Dev is missing its grey shovel dude. At that rate selling Constructicon Maximus might do you better since it's a complete set.

    Keep the one on the left. Sell the one on right.

    Left one looks nicer to me, so the right choice is the one to go.

    I swapped out the gray on classics, because I wanted one that matches. The dark one's laying around somewhere, but I'm not going to look for it because I'm lazy (yep).

    I'm with you all. I like the left better. I'm confused on pricing though - Would $90 shipped be ok?

    @Foster -
    I do wanna' sell them both. But I'm still "holding out for something"

    @Gilga - Yea, I'm buying multiples of both Not-Devies.

    classics is worth more, but its incomplete. The right leg should be the gray version of the mold, not the one attached. I think the classics is worth more still, just not as much without the grey one.

    $90-100 shipped seems about right for each, but that's usually what I see sellers asking for on the boards.

    If you want more money, sell the classics one. If you still want a cool one for your collection and the money is not an issue. Sell the superlink version.

    If I already had the Classics one, I'd probably keep it for funsies, or to sell at some point after the two 3rd party ones came out. I'd definitely sell the Energon one.

    I figure the left one with the more G1-esque paint scheme would sell for a bit more... especially since it looks a good deal more cohesive than the original Energon Devy mish-mash.

    I've seen full Constricicon Maximus bots sell from 85-100ish on Ebay.

    I'd keep the one on the left... unless you'd rather sell both.
