    Yeah, if someone is offering you $60, I'd recommend taking it.

    The harder parts to find are Overbite's accessories, Nautilator's claws, and the stands (especially the smaller parts).

    To me it is. For a price of two figures you get the whole reissue set.

    I'd say it's a bit on the low side, given that Snaptrap is complete. I'd ask for $70-75.
    Just my 2 cents worth.

    I think you've missed the boat. While I think an original Snaptrap complete is "worth" about £30-40, the truth is, most people won't pay that because most people don't mind whether they have original or reissue.

    If you'd sold these even a few weeks ago, you would've got a great price. Now I think you'll just get an okay price.

    The mold is likely to have lost some detail, and there's also the fact that Snap Trap's head has apparently changed color. So, for the picky G1 collector, it's still desirable.

    About a month ago several complete Snap Traps sold for a little over $100 on eBay. My complete albeit discolored and broken Snap Trap, was bid up to $75. It's hard to say if the announcement of the reissue has affected prices yet/much, but I'd shoot a bit higher than $65.

    Sell what you got for $60 and buy the reissue. DON'T let them know about the reissue if they don't already know! LOL

    The color used for the head on the reissue on his robot mode is different than the original, so that wouldnt hard to tell it apart from the original.

    Goos I hope you get a fair price but this is just about the worst time to be selling original G1 Seacons as the Reissue even with its coloring variations will bleed off demand like crazy save for those who must have a genuine G1 toy.

    i would expect prices on the originals to keep up, considering the reissue Seacons probably have the same mold degradation the Timelines Seacons had.

    I was thinking that if you essentially had it sold (someone already made an offer for $65). You could have taken a chance on getting $10-15 more, or not sell it for that and miss a sell.
