    Default Predator Question

    Hey guys, I have a question for you experts, seriously.

    I am bidding on a used Hot Toys AVP Elder Predator. I checked today, and I've been outbid. This piece has all the parts, but does have a broken spear....AND I just noticed that it does not have the original body. The seller says with the armor on you cant really tell, but I'll know.

    Sooooooooooo...Right now it's at 300.00, should I go for it?

    Please, I need some advice.
    Thanks guys!!

    When you're bidding on eBay you really need to set yourself a limit otherwise you'll fall into last minute bidding based on emotion.

    Safe your money for the eventual rerelease that will be far superior and cheaper. Jmo

    Thanks guys. I was really conflicted here, especially since it's not the original body.

    I've wanted an AVP Elder forever, but they are so expensive now. I saw this one, and was really debating whether to bid again, I really don't want to pay alot of cash for one that isn't original as I mentioned >>>>>BUT<<<<<again, I rarely see them up for auction this cheap.

    @riky That would be so worth waiting for if a possible AVP Elder Pred rerelease happened sometime in the future!!

    Can you provide some pics of it? If it's not the original body then what body did the seller use? Hot Toys AVP bodies are very distinct and it's really hard to find another body from another predator line to replace it and still look good. I wouldn't go too high on it honestly.

    Just saw the auction you're bidding on. Doesn't look bad. As long as the body is an AVP body it should be fine but I'm concerned about the spear since Elder looks best posed with his spear and bio in hand. I say pass on it.

    It's at 301.50 now. Yeah, maybe you are right. For the amount of $$ it'll probably sell for, I think I'd prefer an original.
    The question is am I being realistic in the possibility of finding another "cheap?"
