    i've got a g1 SS, in decent condition...however i've been thinking of getting the encore reissue and selling my g1 (i really dont need two) but i havent made up my mind...are there any serious differences between the two? other then one being brand spanking new? i just sold off my g1 megatron (gun only) and plan on getting the encore megs, and ive got a reissue soundwave, and getting encore prime too...so, whadya think?

    Encore has Tampo'd 'con symbols and a clear orange/yellow/tan/grey cockpit. Otherwise identicle.

    I'd go for Encore. the Cockpit is just too nice an improvement.

    I think the encores are the best of the reissues so far so I'd say go for it.

    If you're getting encore Megatron and Prime then get Encore Starscream too! I've got Encore Prime, Megatron and Starscream and I'm happy with them displayed : )

    If your vintage one is in good shape, keep it. You can always get new stickers at Reprolabels.com.

    main difference from the encore one is the tampoed symbols and cockpit. if your g1 screamer still looks good and is complete, like bustajesse said, it might just need some reprolabels.
