I just saw a HT Celtic...opened...and assembled went on EBAY (http://cgi.ebay.com/AVP-Alien-vs-Predator-Hot-Toys-Celtic-Predator_W0QQitemZ250206973194QQihZ015QQcategoryZ3 48QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem) for $500+! What is going on with these? That seems crazy! They all seem to go for $400 or more. By far the most of all the AvP figures. Why do you think this is? I just need a Scar to complete my AvP's and those 'aint cheap either!

Wow, I think I may sell mine and finance the PF Thing and then some.

That's indeed quite remarkable. I never gave a toss about the AvP Preds, because the movie sucked so hard...

The prices will drop substantially when they announce Predator 1 1/6th figures.

Just wait and be patient.

I'm sure they will drop....but how much would be the question. These are hot probably due to AvPR. But it seems everything Predator related is skyhigh right now. I emailed Hot Toys wondering if they would ever re release the popular AvP figures. They pretty much told me they didn't see that happening. Seems to me if they re released the Celtic and Scar figures they would sell out again. Kinda like the Takara Batman figure.

This is why he's hot.

He's got the best mask!

Also because he and Scar are series one and harder to obtain

**** yeah, I'd like to get a Celtic one day... as for Scar...

Thanks again Jamal. :woo

That and like the first wave of ALIENS figures, they were also made in lesser quantities than the 2nd wave.

Personally, I don't know why people are paying these insane prices. All you'd have to do is just get Chopper then find a Celtic mask and net gun wristband, and you'd basically have a Celtic Pred right there.

I, like Alice Adrenochrome, hold no love towards AVP1 or the Predators in it. Though I will say this, Celtic's mask is one of the best in the series.

Jamal

Ditto, only Pred designs i like are P1,P2 & Wolf

Rob
01-25-2008, 12:02 AM
I like those, too, plus the Elder P2 Pred and the Lost Hunters.

Thank God for Stan Winston. ADI did a good job on Wolf, too, though I wish they'd trade in that toothpick-combi-stick for the one from P2. THAT was a weapon.

Jamal
01-25-2008, 12:05 AM
Yeah for sure man the P2 combi is the best looking spear!

Predators are nothing compared to HICKS!
He's reaching the $1000 mark!

lol thats just crazy.. 1000 for a figure like hicks???? thats the kind of money you pay for one of a kind customs from the far east.this is just silly..
the guy who bought the lot of figures for $860 must be feeling pretty damn happy now.. im pretty sure we are gonna see an increase in people selling theyre hicks figures on ebay..enough to make the price drop.


p.s. that figure isnt worth more than $200... just my opinion...welll unless it can dance and cook mongolian cuisine

Rob
01-25-2008, 05:18 AM
I think that's more of a bidding war gotten out of hand, than anything.

If anything, he's worth $200, but that's about it.

That is totally nuts! I bought two Hicks figures when they were first released, mainly for the armour, uniform and weapons... 'cause the portrait, as we all know now, was less than perfect. He's a cool figure, to be sure, but is he really worth a thousand dollars? Especially when he can be kit bashed for much much less? I don't think so. If I had that much to spend on one figure I'd start looking for a Predator maquette instead. :monkey5

gofourindian
01-25-2008, 06:25 AM
Well I know one thing...if I had a Hicks he'd be going on ebay pronto! I'm filling in my Hot toys Preds and refuse to pay what these are going for now. I like 'em just not that much! Just like my Celtic that just came around, Scar will to. You just have to be patient. I can't imagine..."wanna trade 2 HT Hicks for a Predator Maquette?" Just doesn't sound right, does it? :lol

Great find....there's money to be made there! I haven't seen either Scar or Celtic go for less than $350- on eBay. What is 129?...around $260 US?

tigerfeet
01-25-2008, 06:46 AM
yeah about that, got some uscm figures as well.....and in stock !

I think the guy who bought the full marines lot for ~$850, is the same guy selling that Hicks. Can't double check since I deleted that auction from my watch list.

You're right. And he's selling all of the HT Aliens figures separately, which made me think that maybe he was just reselling the lot before he had even won it for sure. But he started his auctions a few hours before the auction for the full marines lot started, so that doesn't seem to be the case. And yes, I can't believe that the winner for Hicks will pay up, but you never know.

Jamal

It defies logic to pay that much for these kinds of figures, when you hit the 500-1k mark theres alot better out there

gofourindian
01-25-2008, 09:03 AM
I'd be tempted to sell now and buy later when the sanity has returned. But.....what if it never levels out? Then you're screwed!

01-25-2008, 06:45 PM
What the hell , they obviosuly have a job that pays enough to make you crazy!.
1025 right now , i bet the seller is in disbelief.
That much for a plastic figure , ha!.

think this could be rigged? maybe they have a whole lot of hicks figures to sell and this is some ploy between seller and buyer to raise the price>?:monkey1

Shill bidding on ebay is quite common

Up to $1,125 now.

That auction eventually ended at $2,325.00! The winner, cleymard, never received any feedback from, or left any for the seller callbob. Looks like it probably was people who knew each other... lol.

why would they have feedback already? the auction just ended today...

ah, good point, I didn't even check the date.. I thought it was an old auction. My mistake. :o

Mesa
01-27-2008, 08:58 AM
something is very fishy with this auction. $2300 for a 12" figure??? Plus, once paypal sees payment is made, seller would be responsible for a "final value fee" based upon final sale price, which is something like 10% minus initial listing price. So if this was just a ploy to inflate market price (possible for subsequent sales), it just cost the seller a few bucks.

Jamal
01-28-2008, 03:31 AM
That has to be a bull**** auction i dont think ANYONE would pay 2000 for a piece of plastic man
