    Last year I recieved Abominus, Predaking, G2 Laser Prime (jap) and Devestator for $250 usd. Was this a good deal, im really afraid of getting ripped off because im so bad with the market... G2 LP was mib and the box was wrapped in sealed plastic lol. Devestator was complete as far as the gestalt was concerned but missing any little guns, Predaking was gestalt complete but missing all small guns missles and swords and Abominus was the same as well. They were in great shape in my estimation but no boxes etc, ill take pics of them tonight gonna do a showcase anyway.

    Here are some pics of my prizes, these are my personal grails btw... i want to own all the gestalts.

    I'm not sure if you got ripped off or not (probably not, sounds good to me), but, I do know that it's a bit too late to try and get a refund if you did get ripped off.

    I wouldn't say you got ripped off, no; especially if the G2 Prime Of Justice and the Predaking were originals.

    If that price included shipping I would call it a good deal...

    I'd say it was worth it. Abominus and Devastator are really nice pieces, even without the smaller guns just having the gestalt is aweome. Predaking also worth it, if you have an original. Same for Prime of Justice.

    If you paid that amount, then they must have been worth it to you?

    I would look pass price point at this moment in time

    If you had to really really think about it and just couldn't put the money down, i would not purchase it...

    At least that's how i am.. If i have to stare at something and look for reasons to buy it.. then save your money. I saw some guy stare at this 14-18 inch batman figure for probably 30 mins (i walked around the store and saw glued to the same spot at least 4 times that i had to pass the aisle...)

    Confirmation that this is a G1 Preds would be appreciated. Im beginning to think it was a pretty fair deal.

    Well, looking at the pics, it's obvious the Laser OP is the Japanese reissue, as it's got the chrome chest and trailer.

    All the toys look to be in pretty decent shape.

    I'm not sure we can confirm original vs. reissue on Predaking, at least not based upon that pic. Is he all plastic, or is there metal?
