Man, that's a lot!
And I only have two (Scar and Celtic) and the P2 Elder on pre-order...

With the AVP preds, alot of them are very simular, with the exception of the Elder, you can probobly get away with just getting one of them and the elder. Unless you just REALY want to get all of them.

anyone know which of the AVP Preds is the cheapest, and easyist to get?

abake

Should be either the Elder or Chopper, those are the only ones I still see in some shops online.

Agreed. I'd have to say both of the Ancient Elders are the same though with different masks and packaging.

Scar, Celtic and Chopper have somewhat the same armor(Only Scar has abdomen armor) with different gauntlets(With the exception of Celtic and Choppers wristblade gauntlets being the same), different masks and different accessories.

As for who's the easiest to get, right now; Predator 2(I strongly suggest you pick this up), Chopper and regular Elder. All the others(Especially Scar, Celtic and Ancient Asia) are pretty hard to find and when you do find them, chances are they end up like Hicks and go up to insane prices.

I can't afford ANY of the Preds that came before the Cleaner Kit :( add the exclusive Guardian Pred to that list as well :( I have the Cleaner and P1, though.

However, I won't be interested in all the Preds. If I could find good deals for these, I'd be happy:

P2 - the main Pred, BD or not
Scar
Wolf ver

Deal with the loss and just keep collecting the new ones. You might get lucky and find some around the $400 mark, again, if you're lucky and happen to be in the right place at the right time. But they're only gonna go up in value.

hes right it takes time. In the last year I have gotten the predator 2 elder for 200 bucks, the scar for 300 and the chopper for 150. I just need the celtic and avp elder to finish my set.

Do you think 1/6 figures eventually cap?

I mean, if you hold onto them too long.

Ex: Forbidden Zone Taylor was an extremely limited figure at just 500 made. At one time, you could not find one for under $150 (a good markup considering the original tag of $45). Now it is long forgotten, with auctions ending around MSRP or a little more.

Everything will naturally go up and down depending on demand, economy, media (sucky movies), etc. But for the most part, no. While I highly doubt you'll ever find one MINT and MIB for below $400, it's safe to say they could even go well above the $600-zone they were hitting a few years ago.

I'm thinking they recently received a boost because of the release of the guardian. With even more new preds coming, i don't see the avps' coming down over the next year. All the completists that have put off picking up their missing figures are scurrying to get it done before berserker and the new clan is released.

Yeah, I'm picking up the Predators line when it gets released :) I have Berserker on preorder :) I still would like to get P2 and Scar, but I'm not keeping my hopes up :)

You really should be banned, you bumped so many old posts now with basically the same stupid question

He's new, he's late in the game, and all of a sudden he should be banned because he didn't want to make more threads for older figures? CHILL. Pssh, these older figures could use some love anyway. Granted, common sense and some research was missing, but other than that he was in the right. You'd be just as pissed if he made yet another thread for questions like this.

I'd love to get my hands on a P2,P2 Elder, P1 and Wolf.
Wolf (at least the cleaner kit vers) shouldn't be too hard at a decent price. I'll probably wait to see what Classic Pred looks like before I pick up P1 unless it I find one under $300, but my only hope of ever owning a P2 or P2 Elder is if I win the lotto or HT releases a new version of both. As much as I love the characters and figures, I just can't justify paying $400 plus on a toy.

I agree. That's some serious money. I've only ever done that once, and I don't plan on doing it again.

Same here... I love my Celtic Pred so much :D. But the guy REALLY needs some friends. I'm thinking Scar and Chopper, and maybe AVP Elder if the price is right.

That made me spew water out of my nose.:gah::rotfl

I could probably sell him a time machine, but he's probably better off buying the figure today for $500 than, buying my expensive time machine and then having to spend another $120 in 2007.

Your reasoning is flawed if you consider that in purchasing the Classic pred and Cleaner kit, you just spent about $400 on toys.

Lol for 2 figures though. I guess I should have said I can't justify $400 on a single figure. Even $300 for me is really pushing it.

True, but then you got to ask yourself. After you have 10-15 figures, your "toy" collection is becoming a few thousand dollar investment.. At that point, what's the difference between buying 1 figure that you "really" want, versus buying two figures for the same price?
I say get over the hump and buy the figure for $400 if it is TRULY what you wan't and not just the completist inside getting the best of your judgement.

I've accepted that I'll have to cross that mark for an AVP Pred. And for Celtic, crossing the $400 one. But he was my only exception. When it comes to the others, they shouldn't be too tough to buy loose for a somewhat decent price. Y'know, if $350-$400 sounds decent :).

Eh, true I suppose. I really love the P2 (my fave Pred design wise), I'm just not sure I love it enough to pay $400 plus for it. I'd easily pay $300and possibly up to $350 but $400 plus is just a little steep for my blood. Right now though it doesn't matter since I don't have $400 to spend anyways (well I do but I refuse to dip into my emergency money to buy a toy).

Boba Ben
08-09-2010, 09:24 PM
I'm glad I have almost every one of them, but I understand how some people feel about trying to get these. If I really wanted to I could buy back Celtic, Chopper and Ancient, but I can't justify paying $800 for a 1/6 scale figure. I might as well save up for a 1:1 Alien warrior bust or another cinemaquette piece if I'm going to drop that kind of money on something.

Yes, but the thing is, you won't spend the $400 in one fell swoop, or at least not in my case. I could buy one USD200 for a figure, and then take a couple of months before I'd be able to spend for another USD200 figure. So, it's not actually flawed to maximize your money, that is, unless one is collecting Predators exclusively, that is.

Sure how long will it be now before a new Hot Toys figure starts retail at $400??

Theres only 4 back catalogue figures I'd even consider - P2 Elder, Hicks, Apone and Vasquez, having missed all those. But theres always just too much new stuff coming out that means I couldn't even contemplate looking at ebay for them. Maybe when HT are done with the Terminator and Predator licenses, and I haven't latched onto something else, I'll try to fill in those gaps. If I wasn't spending money on anything else the ebay prices wouldn't be too damaging using Balsquat's rationale.
