    I remember when this was released and should of bought it then, but I did'nt!

    Questions:
    (approx $)
    What did it sell for shipped when you had to pre order it?
    What did it sell for shipped right after pre orders?
    What can you get it for now?

    What's the max I should pay for an "unopened" box?

    I think it was about $150 initially, i can't remember TBH. With a bit of patience you could probably still get it for that. $175 tops i'd say.

    Yeah it was $150 at release. I've been eyeing them now and them, it still fetches at least that much.

    It looks pretty grim on the ebay front, it's all a bunch of asian sellers. I'd expect to pay over $200 for one from there.

    1) Preorders ranged from $150-175 depending on where you got it.
    2) It stayed that way after release. Actually for a while there it went DOWN...you could get one for about $125 sealed.
    3) Now the prices have gone back up a bit, but not unreasonably so. A sealed one will run you about $200, give or take. If you're patient you can probably get a MIB for less, about what they sold for originally.

    I got to get another one... Predaking was the worst deal I ever made, got it before the reissues in 99 for $400 or so... then I ran out of money and sold it for $150 -_-u

    Well... at least it's still reasonable.

    Ebay:
    I got one for about $125 shipped- but I think it had been opened, transformed once, and then put back. Still minty to me, with stickers unapplied.

    Ebay:
    I got mine for about 165-185, i don't quite remember, it was sealed in box, but when i got it, the box seemed kinda shady with a bit of dust under the tape. So I opened it and found out it was just a poorly shaped box. Items inside were untouched, tape inside in plastic holders were pretty clean and unopened. So I opened the box, Gandered for a few minutes and put it back. 175 is reasonable since it's been a while since it came i'm! I want more gestalts!!!
