    Some stickers applied others not, really tight joints, all instructions, missing 4 swords (but I have no problem picking those up). The only vintage Predakings I see on ebay are plastic. Whats the value of this if I pick up the missing swords?

    Do you still have the original sticker sheets?

    I have unapplied sticker sheets for Rampage and Headstrong. The rest have the stickers applied.

    I'm thinking somewhere around the $275-300 range. Assuming you get all of the individual guns and swords. They could be worth more with the boxes plus this is the diecast version. I could be wrong.

    Thats what the plastic ones go for loose. This is die-cast with boxes.

    I got my first predaking complete for $150(3 metal)
    Quite often you can get each individual bot complete for around $30-$40, so it's not hard to get a predaking for around $200.

    Whilst i don't have a number to offer...... i don't think you can apply the full MIB value to these when they don't have the plastic inserts.

    Will do thanks.

    How long ago was this? I ask because the only die-cast I could find for sale now are re-issues.

    Good point I guess "with box" is more appropriate.

    I got my first predaking complete last year, cost me around $180 from 2 different lot with about 8 predacons. So That's about $150 for a whole set.(I got 3 complete metal razorclaw, 1 complete metal rampage, 1 complete metal headstrong from those lot)

    My 2nd predaking(well, not exactly a predaking because it's missing Tantrum) only cost me $40, all metal and come with 90% of the accessories, but those are not from Ebay.

    Alot of the sellers didn't mention if the toys are metal or plastic, so you have to ask them.(Or by luck) The first lot I bought only have 1 metal one out of the 4, but the 2nd lot I bought have 4 metal ones out of the 4.(I didn't ask seller any questions for both lot)

    Mines are all lose without boxes, plastic loose complete predacons usually goes for $160-$250, metal ones usually don't go over $300($200-$300)

    Thanks for the info. I have no plans selling it. I was curious due to the lack of vintage die-cast on ebay.
