    Is it possible to buy a new pair from anywhere or anyone? She sat on the wings despite putting them there and crushed the figure. :'(

    Any ideas if I could buy a new pair of the Talon wings of Nero Rex (not Feral Rex)? From here? Any feedback is appreciated. Thanks :'(

    Put a listing the B/S/T forum for just Nero Talon. Some have sold Nero Rex in parts in there. Also keep a eye on eBay. Beats buying a whole set. Also you could find the KO version just for the wings.

    Neoarts has a same-size, good-quality KO of both the Feral and Nero Rex sets. You could buy a reasonably-priced Nero Divebomb and use his wings.

    So, wait, did your wife sit on the figure on purpose? As others have suggested, get the Neoarts figure, but this is kinda accidentally hilarious.

    It was on accident despite her putting the wings there. I don't mind buying the whole figure or KO parts. Any other ideas please. Thank you in advance. :( 
    Where can I buy the KO version under your guidance? Thank you. :(

    Thank you, Nemesis! I'm not sad anymore! Even for a KO version, it's fine!

    Ask who you bought Nero Rex from?

    Hope it helps:) 
    Sorry to hear about Nero:(

    Will the value of the figure be maintained a little bit in your guys' view? Despite the KO wings?

    The ko version Talon feathers don't move.
    The are one piece unlike the original.
    I haven't yet seen the Neoarts Talon being released yet, so if that's what you're talking about.. do u have a link ??,

    I'd buy one one of those !!!

    Any damage usually affects the value.
    I think maybe more for Predaking since the wings are a necessity for combined mode.

    Ah, for a moment I thought this might be another dreaded case of Wife Aggro.

    But replacing the wings helps. Then again, this isn't the official first party transformers, either.

    Gamerlingual, if I were a potential buyer I would appreciate being told upfront that the wings had been replaced by the Neoarts wings.
    After that, price is entirely up to you and the seller to determine. Demand and supply and mutual price agreement as moderated by applicable conditions.

    In this case, if I were selling, I would make the replacement known, but since the Neoart wings are practically the same as the originals, I would not be keen to let it affect how I value the set. I would probably throw in the rest of the Neoart Nero Divebomb to sweeten the deal and since there's no point keeping that anyway once the rest of the team is sold.

    Not a bad decision at all.
    If anything, buyers in the know will lowball you based on the oversized Jinbao or high-quality Neoarts KOs. So you might as well just love your original since you already got him :)
