How can you tell the difference between a vintage G1 Dirge & a reissue Dirge?

    I'm asking the question because a guy is selling me one G1 vintage Dirge (he says). But it too new.

    Any sites with pictures to compare it?

    The only way I can think of is to look at its trademark info. It should be on the side of one of his legs. If you're suspicious, ask him to take a picture of the trademark for you.

    According to Fred's page, "Speaking of later reissues, Dirge has hit the scene (can the others be far behind?). Mold-wise, he's nearly identical to the original. The wings and long guns, while a slightly different shade of plastic, are functionally interchangeable. As has followed all reissues thus far, certain generic parts are the same across the board(for example, all reissue fists are large-circle mold, stamped 11; Dirge's fists are also 11, the jetbody letter is E). This time, like the others, but unlike the original, they got rid of the little washer seperating the two halves of the jet(under the chin)."
