    I'm trying to clean house, raise some funds, whatever... in my b/s/t thread, but I'm stuck on this one. I can't decide if I should sell Energon Landmine or Landquake as I don't feel I need both of them and I already own Botcon 09 Landshark. OR, should I just sell them both off and keep one of the mold (the Botcon one, of course)? Or, God help me, keep them all for some reason? I'm not usually indecisive, but this one has me stumped. Let me know your votes and the reason why.... please!

    The other selling dilemma(s) I have are this:

    I have Botcon Goldbug (so which of these repaints should I get rid of):
    Cybertron Hot Shot
    Cybertron Excellion
    TFTM Breakaway

    I have Botcon Springer (so which of these repaints should I get rid of):
    Cybertron Hot Shot (Defense)
    Universe Roadbuster

    I have Botcon Jazz & Riccochet (so which of these repaints should I get rid of):
    Cybertron Crosswise
    Cybertron Smokescreen

    I said both, I like the landshark paint scheme the most. But, I'm not into repaints so much, I tend to keep only one of each mold.

    The only thing I bought again that was a direct repaint of the same character was the deluxe ROTF Brawl, the first 07 version had craptastic gears and pegs.

    As I assume you're doing this because you only want to keep the things that fit in with Classics, I say sell everything except for Breakaway and Roadbuster (and the Botcon guys, of course). It's what I did, for the same reason.

    Out of curiousity why do you say to keep Excellion and Crosswise? I'm on the fence on these guys. Roadbuster I'm definitely keeping now.

    In fact, outside of Roadbuster & Smokescreen do any of these guys (from post #1) reference any of the characters from G1/G2?

    I'm not sure which Landmine and Landquake you're talking about, but here's my opinion on the others.

    You have the BotCon versions. I say you sell the repaints and keep the figures that the mold was originally done for. Sell Breakaway, Roadbuster, and Smokescreen.
