    Hi all,

    Can anyone speculate on how much I'd get if I were to sell my D-327 Rairyu? (the Brontosaurus). He's MIB with all paperwork.

    Thank you

    You mean Dinoking?

    3 years ago, when I was looking for all them of, they were going for $50-90 per MIB figure. The last auctions have been higher like around $100-150. That's what I'm guessing.

    Where did you find an individual MIB Dinoking member? I'd like a Dinoking but the giftset is going for 1000+ on ebay.. so 100-150 sounds about right per figure MIB just because buying one isn't as appealing as grabbing the entire set.

    I bought it from a site about 6 years ago. It was $65! The site had 3 others, but I couldn't afford them at the time. Knowing what I know now I should have begged, borrowed or stole and bought them!

    I'm sure you could have gotten them a little bit cheaper than $65 6 years ago but in the end it paid off now.

    Getting each individual dinoking figure is way cheaper than getting the giftset. The giftset is at an insane price now. Not even funny but it is a rare set giftset. But tracking each figure individually will take some time. I was lucky enough to find a collector getting rid of everything at the same time.

    wow that is a good deal. I wasn't very interested in overseas series because I never saw them. It wasn't until a few years ago, after I saw victory I was hooked. Now I own most of them but my Lio Kaiser is still incomplete because I can't find the breastmasters for Drillhorn and Jauguar.

    People just overspend on those figures.... So maybe you'll luck out with your dinoking toy. 65 bucks? damn.... what a smoking deal....

    I think it was $65, though it might have been $45. I really can't remember. The only problem is I think it might be a bit yellow, but I'm not sure because I have nothing to compare it with.

    Victory stuff is crazy because its almost always yellow and if it isn't yellow, it suffers from GPS (Killbison and the Dinoking member). I don't know what it is but that stuff just loves turning yellow...

    Check out this auction

    eBay.com.my: Transformers G1 D-334 Drillhorn Liokaiser MIB (item 220481547750 end time Jun 13, 2010 17:50:51 MYT)

    I've been trying to talk this guy down forever... the toy has been on ebay for at least 6 or 7 months and he still won't come down on the price. I just want the damn brestmaster lol. Removing Yellow isn't a big deal with the UV lamp/ Peroxide cure

    I just bought a DinoKing gift set with his contents sealed MIB, but to be honest its a very underwhelming set. I got it to complete my Victory Series.I actually like the Monstructor version better.

    :lol  Yes... Yes indeed. You're paying more for different shells than anything else.

    I bought my MIB Drillhorn for £25 just 3 years ago!

    And by looking at those pics, yes mine is yellowed. I wanna give the peroxide treatment a go, but am worried about any damage to the shell, as it feels a bit rubbery to me.

    lucky... thats a good deal:thumbs2: 

    I'd just try it on a junker part and see how it works for you. Afterwards, you could decide if its worth the risk.

    Cool, I won't even mess with the 30% stuff. Just grab the drug store .99 3% and your good to go. You will probably need a UV lamp however.

    Sunlight didn't work for me. It might work for the 30% but it did nothing for my 3%. You should be able to pick up a cheap one at the pet store. Just check out the lizard, Turtle section.
