    Missing all the individual small guns, stands and Overbite.

    Chrome on shield is a little scraped.
    Reprolabels on Snaptrap....... some were applied where the originals were bad, but the others are still on the sticker sheet.
    Overbite label has all stickers.

    Other than that, he seems to be very nice overall.
    What do you figure this would be priced at? $50.-$60.?

    Are you selling or buying? If buying, unless you need the one from the 80's, go with the reissue from BBTS. $60 gets you everything minty fresh.

    Selling, you could probably get up to $70 since it has all the Piranacon parts & is in good shape.

    You might get more if you part it out actually. The fists go for quite a bit IIRC.

    That's where I'm stuck. One of the reasons I'd sell would be to get the re-release for $60. Then again, this is my original from way back when. I just don't know if it's worth selling.

    Do any of you here regret selling off your G1 originals for the new encores, re-releases, etc?
    For $70., it just doesn't feel right to dump this one and get the new one for $60. ($70./shipped probably)

    Keep it man, you will regret it. Original > Reissue.

    Just save up for the BBTS version if you want one, it is only $60 and they have like 2000+ left in their inventory.

    I sold all my originals for reissues and don't regret it one bit. However, this seacons reissue doesn't seem up to par with the Takara stuff. Wait for a few more reviews to come rolling in before you sell it because if its anything like the Seibertron review, a lot of people are going to be disappointed in it.

    I'd hang on to it; we don't know enough about the upcoming reissue's quality.
