The lowest i've seen one go for is $500 (it had a mark on it's leg). Attempts were made to buy it. The seller quoted crazy shipping prices of $450 ($80 to $120 is the norm for shipping US to UK).

I did bid on one over 6 months ago (new sealed) and that went for atleast $1200, possibly $1400 (crazy high price)

$700 - $900 is more the standard price for ex displayed.

There is a collector here who owns 2. Maybe, if he decides to sell one, he'll pm me

Sounds like it’s about the same last time I noticed it. Good luck in your search. She’s a beauty and IMO the variant is far and away the superior of the two due to the contrast in colors and how much better the translucent suit comes off.

What bugged me is, i wrote to Gentle Giant some time ago asking if they had any Red Whispers remaining in the stock room. They didn't.

Some months later, someone listed 3 on ebay, that they obtained from Gentle Giant, as Gentile Giant appeared to have discovered 3 in the stock room?

-

The seller that had one for sale (buy it now) $500, with a mark on it's leg, listed the item and failed to use the words 'Gentle' 'Giant' 'Red' in the description. They listed the item as 'Whisper' 'Comic' 'Con' 'Exclusive'. It was re listed atleast 3 times

GG, like most companies, do hold back a small amount of product for replacements and/or special events. Sometimes they’re APs but often they’re numbered pieces. I remember scoring an AP Sucker Punch Baby Doll years ago well after it was sold out and fetching 1k on the secondary.

I'd have preferred the red one too, however as you've been saying how crazy the prices of those are (I have the same recollection) I decided I'd rather have the common one than none at all. No regerts.

I like the regular more. She has more of a natural look. I think the black diving suit is more believable too. There is still a pop of color on her with the massive tattoo. My only issue with these are the bases. They aren't bad in size, but it still makes it hard to display them together. I am trying to think of a way to do a customs base.

The quickest way to double your money is to fold it in half and put it back in your pocket.

My Whisper (reg) shipped today
..and to think ebay sellers want $500.00 give or take $100
Getting the BBTS deal makes up for all the recent Sideshow price cuts on 1/4 PF pieces i already own.
Still thinking about Rogue, Catwoman PF and holding out until 2019 deals
