    Is there a secondary market for the original release of the team + Felisaber in original colors, or has the OS KO/Nero recolor killed demand? I think I want to let mine go, but I'm not gonna sell it for a big loss.

    Usually goes for $200-350 on Ebay. Really varies wildly.

    You'll definitely lose money though. Probably even more so if you hold on to it even longer.

    I see a lot of full sets when I go searching. I, however, am picking the set up piece by piece. I see the full set listing for $350-$450 most often.

    Half the combined gun comes with Tigris, due to him coming with both his own two guns as well as the big one for Leo Dux, so I think that affects availability/distribution of the guns.

    The problem is that the one i wanna get is just the figures only pretty no weapons at all so i either would like the cannon or the sword i just wanted them to have a weapon in bot mode and a weapon for predaking i wasn't fussy which one even that 3rd party sword seems hard to come buy, i might have to give it a pass for now

    I got $250 for mine (minus Felisaber) in March. However, I sold it at a toy show where people are more inclined to buy because it's right out there on display and a person can buy it right away and take it home. I had been trying to sell it for at least a few months before that on here and in facebook groups with little interest. So the market for it is...not huge at this point IMO.

    You asked if you should sticker them up.

    I said "No."

    I'm not sure how to elaborate. Do you wanna know why I said "No"? Because I think the stickers would look back was implicit. I'm not trying to be nasty about this I'm just not sure what kind of elaboration you're asking for. What my preferences are? Quality of toyhax? Overall gaudiness?

    Oh!! Thanks for the reply on your thoughts. Sorry, I meant if the stickers look good on feral rex, if the quality is good and if the stickers last i.e. doesn't peel off easily.

    To those 3 questions: No, yes, yes. I have bought dozens of Toyhax sets, but the Feral Rex ones are often considered a "miss", design-wise. I bought them for Bovis, but removed them and didn't buy the other four.

    If you like how they look, is really the only issue. The raw quality is good.

    Trying to sell my set for $225 shipped. I think the KOs and the Hasbro Titan Predaking killed the resale value of this set. Will probably just break them into the individual bots and leave it like that.

    Hey it's your toy have it however you like. I will say though I had the "Over the Top" set on Bovis when he first came out as I wanted to get every little thing I can for him @ the time. Over time I felt like it cheapen the look (Just my personal opinion no offense) the toy so I removed all of them. Personally if I can go back in time I would've just got the Crazy Devy Chrome wings and been done. Hope that somewhat helps;) 

    EDiT: if I remember correctly the cutouts on some the Stickers sucked back then. I however did let ToyHax/Reprolabel know and they sent me a new sheet.

    another hit is that not only do you have the KO, OSKO, and the Titans, but you also have 2 upcoming 20" combiners in TW and that other group that i can't think of right now. I have and love Nero Rex and he works best for the group of combiners i collect but i and the 15" combiners are a dying breed with waning interest to the CHUG with the MP desire. Even with Siege and them being really cool and people liking them it's not helping 12"-15" combiners have any value

    Yeah, also considering parting with at least a part of the team.

    The predacons were Always a team I was interested in. When the G1 reissue came I bought it...and sold it withing a month. The Feral Rex set is beautiful and such solid figures. And I would argue of all the available option, the best made and highest quality. But after the recent collection reshuffle they just don't fit anymore. Since I don't care about combiners that much nor the entire team, I'll probably hold on to the two or three I like best, but will try to sell the rest. Too bad to read their market value has apparently gone down.
