    Would you buy a MISB Encore Convoy for $95 shipped or a Takara gold label Convoy for $110 shipped?

    I like the painted on autobot logos on the Encore one, but I am not big on the different shade of blue for the legs. Are there any other differences between the two besides the packaging?

    Thanks in advance:)

    Given the reported QC problems on Encore prime, i'd suggest going with the gold label one.

    neiter..TFC book style 0 is the best reissue prime.

    but if you have to chose from those two then I would get the Takara 15th year reissue the gold label one. It was the first reissue prime to come out.

    Encore Convoy for that much would be a ripoff.

    I'd wait for G1 style Ipod Convoy and get him instead. But of the two you listed, I'll add one to the gold label votes.

    Yup. Digital-Toys.com has him for $70 plus shipping.


    But if I had a choice, I'd go for the Gold Label one...which I've never actually seen, but would go for anyways since it's the first reissue.

    The Encore Prime only sold for 5000 Yen in Japan. Why pay twice the price. The gold label Convoy would be the way to go on that one.

    I've seen a few go MIB go for little as $80 plus shipping. Just gotta keep watching and waiting, waiting and watching.

    I'd love to get a second for the G1 accurate action master alone.
