I posted on RS but want some TIGers input!

For anyone who doesnt know, I have a strict rule of having only one of a figure. So when I buy a MOC I'll sell the existing one I have.

I have these two Snaggletooths. Both fit into my "Small World" Focus. Who do I keep and who do I sell? Give me your opinions!! Money isnt a factor so it's not a choice of whos more expensive.

Figure 1 - Trilogo Hybrid. Nice shape and unpunched...

Figure 2 - PBP Offerless . Cards Decent but not minty

So what do you think? Who's the keeper??

The 'hybrid' snag is far easier to replace (unlike like a hammerhead tongue ) . Condition isn't the 'key' to the small world focus (ie Tri Lando Laughing ) So PBP is the keeper.

Not the most obvious reason I admit....

I would keep the PBP MOC, the red spanish fonts combined with his red jumpsuit gives Snaggletooth a bit of Spanish temperament which suits him.

I'd keep the PBP John. Something about it "speaks" to me more.

trouble is they're both cool John... :scratch:

For display purposes the Hybrid probably works best as it looks pretty minty.
But the PBP certainly has some character, and I like the fonts and how Snag stands higher in the bubble.
+ If it's more rare then I'd prob keep the PBP.

Hi John,

Just curious whether you have already taken a decision which way to go.

I thought I had a trade done but the other person has gone quiet. I was moving the Trilogo for a Clipper figure. The other person hasnt read my PM so he couldve just gotten busy.

Though it was close, in the very end you made the right decision to stay away from the dark path of the Trilogos! Very Happy
(Let's hope Joe won't read this).

I hope the other guy will read his PM and contact you about the trade soon, John.
