    hey guys im sorry but i dont know where to post questions about prices for something so im just trying here

    well i went to a department store and they got a Predaking on display and i asked them if they are selling it and they said its about 165usd
    supposedly its complete and they still have the box for it
    they let me hold it and its quite heavy like its got lots of metal parts i guess

    well id appreciate it if you guys can tell me if 165 is worth it or how much it usually goes for

    thanks

    Department store has a G1 Predaking on display????

    Depends on whether it is a vintage Predaking or Reissue. Either way both are definitely worth the $165 price tag especially if complete with box.

    WOoooaH...... What department store are we talkin about here dude? Sounds like you held a diecast version which is highly sought after. Assuming the decals are already applied and its in fair condition and complete with all the accessories and box, I would say about $150 bucks.

    Moving to Transformers Toy Discussion. Discussion of toy prices is fine there. Junkion is used for actual buying/selling. :)

    i don't know where you can find a complete diecast predaking for 150?!?! sign me up in a heartbeat for that price.. cheapest you see a complete one recently would be at least 200-250... you might get lucky and get one to display for 150 but i doubt it would be complete with all weapons.

    sorry didnt know where to post this

    well its a department store in taiwan
    i already bought a mp-07 thundercracker misb here for roughly 100 bucks
    they also got a 2007 movie sale so i bought first strike voyager prime and battle damage voyager prime for about 25 bucks
    well i went back again today and saw the predaking
    not sure which version it is but ill probably go back and find out more about it
    the guy at the store told me its complete and i think it might be because people in taiwan cant really afford to collect toys thats as expensive as transformers
    the predaking is in a locked glass case so i suppose it is in quite good condition

    ask him for the stamping on the toys, if it's made in China then it's the reissue.

    Usually the condition for the predaking could be tell from Divebomb's wing stickers, if it looks almost new then it's most likely a reissue. You should also ask to see the box, it's very easy to tell if it's a reissue or not from the box. Also, all 5 reissue predacons use diecast metal.

    As for completion, Don't just take seller's word for it, make sure you check it yourself. It should come with 2 hands, 2 feets, 1 head, 1 shoulder canon, 5 swords and 8 black guns.

    well i guess its the reissue because its quite a heavy figure and ill go check if its got all its accessories
    the person that works at the store doesnt know much about transformers
    well if it is the reissue and it its complete with box then is it worth buying it for 165?

    300+ is usually for MISB, 165 is a decent price as long as everything is present including the plastic insert and papers.

    Just because it is the metal version, doesn't mean it's the reissue. I have a bunch of vintage metal versions.

    Like mentioned before, ask to the see the toys and box. If the box has Japanese writing on it, then it is the reissue. If the toys are made in china, it is the reissue.

    Either way. if it is the reissue or vintage, I'd buy it in a heartbeat (as long as it's not a KO in original boxes/gifset box or reissue box).

    just came back from the store
    its the japanese D-78 20th anniversary version of the predaking
    it does have 5 swords and 8 guns and the stickers for it are still in a sealed bag
    the edges of the box for the figures seems kinda beat

    hmm someone mentioned shoulder cannons but i dont seem to see any shoulder cannons in pics of the figure i see online
