    Okay, I finally have money for this beast. Wondering if he is still available at retail stores in Japan? I have a friend coming to the states from there in a month and was going to have him hunt him down for me. Or should I just eBay him.

    He was released in late 2004 as I recall so he has been long gone from Japan retail. Will probably be able to find him in specialty and or hobby stores over there though.

    It's what I figured. I new I should've bought him then, just didn't have the fundage. It won't hurt to ask my buddy to hunt for him. He's got a couple of months before he comes over anyway. Should be enough time. I'm probably going to post a "Want Ad" too in the near future. Even on ebay, Predaking seems to be a rare find nowadays, either that, or is more than what I'm willing to spend. Thanks again.

    Archonia.com still has him on clearance - at a decent price if you're in Europe.

    A local vintage toy shop here in Cincy had him for around $150 a few weeks ago. Don't know if he's still there.

    I think they bottomed out last year around Botcon time. The Japanese dealers brough over a half dozen or so with Toys R Us clearance stickers on them. I think they were charging something like $90 each. Price has been inching up since.

    Got mine from a guy off of Seibertron.com, not really complete, just missing a few of the Predacons guns and swords, but hey it cost me less than $100! So I wasn't about to complain!!:thumb
