    Wow. Any more of those around, I'd buy at that price
    I'm looking at whichever one has the lower cost right now, so if the re-issue is the same as the original (or close enough) it doesn't bother me.

    The C-310 Japanese reissued as opposed to the Hasbro reissue is pretty close to the original except that the original giftset was packaged with styrofoam and the reissue is not.

    I'd recommend getting the reissue because it is (1) cheaper; (2) substantially similar to the original; and (3) you get fresh new chrome on the entire chromed Godbomber cab front which becomes the God Ginraii chest.

    Original... I dunno.
    That's no longer the case - They can now go for up to $400 the normal being $200-250

    Oddly enough the original 80s version without God Bomber has gone down dramatically at $150 a boxed set.

    I felt bad for paying $80 for mine after they got marked down to $20.

    i don't think you should feel bad, because the $60 more is the premium you paid to secure the toy at the time it is available. It's not for anyone to predict that months down the road, C-310 would still be available and then even marked down.

    Would be great if we had crystal balls.

    Thanks for the help on God Ginrai, it helped alot.
    Another "what's it worth" from me.
    What's G1 Sixshot worth and was he ever reissued?
    Also, I have seen a version with purple wings, is this a fake?

    not sure what its worth now since I don't actively look.

    It was reissued once in a Japanese G1 box.
    Sixshot's wings are actually slightly purple, they are not white.
