a good price would be 2500, but I think you would have a hard time finding one for less then 3k, I think 3k has been the going rate for awhile.

3k for the exclusive Pred maquette?

azurepred

yep! and the CM goes for $3500-4500k :hi:, so pick your poison I guess, sucks for brand new Predator collectors.

It is a good thing that I don't like either one of those statues, so that I can stay $7500 richer.

At some point, the people who pay these secondary market prices are going to be in the same spot as the homeowners who are underwater.

There was one guy in Toronto Ontario Canada, (near me) that had one original predator maquette for sale, EX edition, and he wanted no less than $5000.00 for it!!!:doh!:

I wanted to buy it but he wouldnt budge, dont know if he ever got that insanely high price for it!

I don't get why would people want to spend $1000+ more just for the extra head. I would buy the regular and save tons of money.

azurepred
04-19-2012, 02:13 PM
don't know either, I'm just glad I got mine before things went really crazy on it. The Biohead is defn better though. The reg is still a great piece though and can be had for reasonable prices still.

Yeah the masked head is great but $1000 or more just for that head? Come on...I just don't get it.

How much is the regular going rate nowadays? Do you know?

azurepred
04-19-2012, 02:21 PM
still only goes for about $1500 tops, I think it can be had for $1200-1400, the P1 Bio is just so iconic.

From what I've seen, the regular P1 can go for about 2000.

The P1 bust around 2000

An Exclusive P1 maquette around 3k is what I'm seeing.

Do people actually spending that much money 3 G for predator maquette excl? Or is it just shill bidding?

Realistically speaking guys?

Do or do not
04-19-2012, 03:22 PM
Unfortunately, I missed the boat on these pieces and that kinda sucks.

However, with SS doing the LSF line, there's NO DOUBT they'll do a P1 Predator in the near future...when they do, I'll be there to order. It's just a matter of SS nailing a decent pose.

the last 3 reg I've seen never went for more then $1500. Imo, any that sold for $2k was a fluke.

yep, realistically, I think the cheapest one I've seen in the last year was $2800 + shipping

The only thing i paid flipper price for that's above $1000 is the optimus prime because the chance of a remake of this complexity & quality is close to zero.

I would seriously caution people paying crazy prices for those kind of pieces like predator or ironman etc..because sooner or later they will be remade with a slightly different pose, then the original price will drop like a rock.

azurepred
04-19-2012, 04:18 PM
the CM possibly could go down a little if SS does a 1/3, but it will never dip below $3k cause Wang sculpted it and factor in the quality of a CM piece. The SS maquette has a mystique factor to it, there will never be anything more accurate then that piece, and there will never be another that comes from SWS and also be as limited, that's simply why it will always stay within the $2500-3000 range.

I wud say the reg shudnt be more than 1600 but people are taking it too far and i ve seen some asking for over 2000. Thats just insane n wishing on a falling star

If you have one of these pieces, it comes down to how much would it take to make you let it go.

GUILTY GEAR
04-19-2012, 05:15 PM
good price is $1200~$1500

over price is $2000+

the REG usually sell for $1200~$1500

the EX is pain in the butt, most owner wants $2000 for it or more. :battherapy:

Darth Pain
04-19-2012, 06:17 PM
$2k-2.5k TOPS for the excl.
$1800 TOPS for the reg..

But, if Sideshow is really revisiting the Predator in 1/4 scale why even buy now? Wait til they make another one and decide then. Unless, you find a good deal,

Plus, it comes with a display stand for the other head so you can display both.

And with it only limited to 300 pieces, people would much prefer the exclusive, I think...

Yes you know it. I agree that's why I'm keeping my limit of 1000.00 and no more. They will make another soon, and more. People are just getting overly excited and is thinking this will be thenonly one made ever.

Judging by the releases we've seen that did not involve SWS/Legacy the chances of something "better" coming along are slim unless SS contracts Steve Wang or Tankman. Their non SWS pieces leave a lot to be desired accuracy wise. Those prices have been maintained for a reason.

I hope they will bring in someone else pro in sculpting ( involved in movie industry along that kind of line). Maybe hiring steve or tankman will be abit too expensive for SS

Steve has said plenty of times since he did the CM P1, he's done with the character, I'm sure of it. When SS does another P1, it will prolly be a LSF, so be prepared to drop $2k anyways, but if they do a true 1:2, be prepared to drop 3 or even $4k. Anyone that even thinks another 1/4 P1 would only be $1k is delusional.

I think you are the only one that's delusional. Every post you make here is complaining about the price for every upcoming statue being too cheap.

Just because they released wolf pred at $2k doesnt mean every single 1/4 pred/ironman/lotr will be $2k. Sometime i wonder if you are part of sideshow's marketing team to make us feel better about the price gouging they do.

azurepred
04-20-2012, 03:31 PM
:laugh::laugh::laugh:

show me a post where I "complain" a statue price is too cheap. The difference between you and I is that I'm realistic, not a day dreamer. If any Predator 1 statue ends up in the LSF line, it will be at minimum $2k, that's 100% fact. The SS P1 maquette, that was released, what 7 years ago?, that was $1k then, anyone that is realistic can see that with basic inflation, there's no way in hell another 1/4 P1 would only be $1k. Maybe that's only $200 difference, maybe a little less, maybe a lot more, who knows, but it won't be $1k or less.

That's really subjective. It's the most accurate pred out there, which is the biggest reason why the price is so high. I have pieces like the cm pred, alien warrior bust, pred bust, and the maquette is still my fav piece of all of them. Would be the last piece I ever sell.

No, 1.5-2k is a bargain price, not a realistic one . Only chance at finding one in that range is if it's broken or local pick up with no boxes. Prices for the reg don't mean jack . You might as well hope SS will make a bigger, yet inaccurate p1 in the LSF line for $2k+,with no ES cause the prices aren't gonna drop.

yea, I payed about $1900 for the maquette when the PO started going up for the CM Pred, and I payed like $2600 for the CM Pred a little over a year ago. It is pretty crazy, but hey, collectors these days complain a lot about their statues not increasing in value enough and look at those 2. The Aliens bust is even crazier. Payed a lot for that one too though :vortex:

I payed $1500 for my Pred. Ex. maq. in 2007, new in the box. Payed $1500 each for two Alien Warrior busts new in the box right before prices went crazy in July 2007. The most ridiculous expensive piece I've ever bought though has been the Ardeth Bey 1/1 bust Silver Screen edition, I'll keep that one under my hat as I'm embarrased to say how much I had to pay for it but I took a severe hit. And then prices for the Ardeth really went down in the crash of 2008.:banghead:

azurepred
01-14-2013, 01:27 PM
yea, I don't think the Pred maquette started going up crazy until the CM pred supplies started dwindling. I got the warrior bust for $2800 I believe, last year. I thought that was a bargain for one of those. I've seen em go for 4k on ebay.
