G1 Original VS Reissue
Posted 01 May 2012 - 04:08 PM
My question is: Do you prefer Original over Reissue?
Please feel free to post in detail why you picked your answer.

Generally I don't mind having a G1 or Reissue as long as I don't have to break the bank for either and its in very good (g1) or new (reissue) condition.
Right now I currently only buy reissue figures though, there is something to be said for being the first person to open the package. This though is more a product of me having the majority of the G1 figures that have caught my interest.

I'm just all about the re-issues. Nice mint, brand-new toys in case-fesh packaging...how can you go wrong? Now I can appreciate someone owning the original G1 toys, but I'd only want them if they were sealed and still brand-new, and we all know how much those can be. So I'm quite satisfied with collecting re-issues, definitely.
And Operator7G...the Encore Optimus Prime has the original smokestacks, although I'm not sure the fists are like the originals. They may be like the TRU Commemorative version that has this little weird "cup-in-the-hand" sculpt thing going on. But I've not opened mine to know. And sometimes you can find a re-issue Megatron that's un-modified and comes without the orange tip. I had one and foolishly sold it. *sigh*

The fix for the loose leg Soundwave is to put actual batteries in his battery compartment. Puts enough weight to the back for him to not topple forward.

If I can afford it, usually I get the original assuming we are talking about MISB.
Most of my G1 figures are usually reissue because the original are too expensive.
If the Reissues are an exact identical to the original meaning no color, material, or mold alteration, then I get the reissue.

For these 2 reasons I cast my vote for the reissue. Their is just something to be said for opening up a brand new Transformer.
