That was quick. It says the shipping weight is 5.88 pounds. That doesn't seem heavy enough to be diecast version. Can anybody weigh theirs for me? :oops:


I assumed that weight was high enough to guarantee it's die-cast. Piranacon is only 1.4 lbs. TFWiki lists Predaking at 2.2 lbs.

Because I don't have a few bucks to put away. I've got 4 payments left on the newest computer yet, and if I'm not gonna make those 4 payments...

Let's just say good chunk of that payment would happily go to Predaking, if I didn't wanna pay off my computer.

For the plastic Predaking are you guys talking about the KO one from a year or three back? With the white Headstrong (I think) and the clear blue guns? That's going for $200??? (He assumes you're talking about that one and not the/a plastic Takara reissue and/or Hasbro original)

Anyhow, I like the gold lion head, and the gold-looking Headstrong body is neat too. I picked up the Takara reissue set a few years back, so I'm good on Predaking for the present time, but if I had the funds, I might try for this one. All told, for me it's the same as the Seacon reissue. If I had the money, I'd order them. But I have them, so I don't feel too bad about not being able to order them. But, I'm very, very happy to see them both being re-released.

Good Lord, it's like he's got some kind of shiny infection all over him.

Now why would I want a plastic KO? Of course I was asking about the all plastic variety. Just for the record:

1) Predaking was originally released with die-cast metal pieces, but those were soon phased out, similarly to other figures in 1986.
2) Japan only had the all-plastic version, but the reissue still had die cast metal parts.

Well, outside of the fact that I was just asking for to clarify my own confusion, I seem to remember that when that KO came out there was a small amount of buzz on the boards about it. I also had thought about getting one of those myself when they were on eBay, but thought they were too expensive. So, in my feeble minded confusion, I apparently thought that perhaps that white plastic KO may have increased in value. Oh, silly me! I sure feel stupid for asking.

I know. I had a few of the metal ones in the 80s, and I currently own the Takara reiusse with die cast. Again, my apologies for asking.

Nah, I'm sorry for seeming a bit snappy. I may need to set my standards for common knowledge a tad lower :P

I'm glad that I got this guy years ago, but I never let him out of the box, so if I had the money to spare I would pick up another one, but I don't.

As for the shiny, it's to blind all of his prey.

Crazy Dev planed their release at the right time.

How much was Predaking when he was released a few years ago? I remember him being expensive, but not this expensive.

I realize Piranacon isn't Predaking's equal, but I don't think this justifies Predaking costing 3 times as much.

You have to keep in mind that Piranacon, by today's standards, consists of 5 Scout-sized toys and 1 Deluxe. Predaking on the other hand is slightly bigger, 5 Deluxes altogether. With 2 Scouts making a Deluxe (roughly) Piranacon is still a Deluxe and a Scout short of Predaking. Add the metal and his popularity, and there's the difference in price.

Price-wise we do get jipped in Europe. I've seen the original reissue (oxymoron anyone?) sell for around the €200 or $250 mark in import stores.

Best deal I found on the last reissue was 165$ or so

So 5 yrs later and only $15 more bucks? I won't miss out on Predacons again.

That's why I don't understand why everyone is complaining about price?

They were 15$ a piece figures when they came out originally so like all the other reissues they are $30 figures now.

$30 * 5figures = 180$

It could be worse, we could never get a complete new in box Predaking ever.

$165? As in dollars? Now way. New in the box they sell for $300-500 on Ebay, opened but mint in box around $250-$350. 100% complete Vintage out of box goes for around $180-$250
