I believe that most folks think it's a bit of a silly release especially in regards to the new paint apps for that enormous of a price tag.
Just get the G1 and be happy. Try and get a super minty one if you can find it and you'll still save money.
Others may say different and that an "encore" release is always better than a G1 antique but i think it's cheating. The charm of a vintage piece that's minty and has survived the test of time is far more appealing (too me) than a new one with a flashy paint scheme. There's no thrill to the hunt in my opinion and no real value.
That's my opinion as a collector.
