Hey /toy/ I am just asking if anyone knows if these AVPR figures that I have still in the box would be quite valuable nowadays?
>We aren't a fucking appraisal service you stupid fuck.
Damn I thought people were far more relaxed and friendlier on this forum.
Yes I did check ebay but I also wanted to ask people who are fans of the AVP series and who are collectors.
Sorry I asked

>be surprised and offended by a rude post
We get asked to appraise shit all the time, so it gets annoying. Most modern toys do not have any value to them, in order for a toy to be worth more than a few dollars after market it has to be in high demand, have had limited release, or be unique in some way. Ebay is really your only valid option since very rarely are you going to be able to sell a toy for a much higher price outside of having a vendor booth at a convention.
There are far too many idiots who think the couple of toys they have sealed in a closet is worth more than what they paid for.
Gonna need to wait a few years and keep them mint for them to be worth anything.
Best hope now is to complete the line, put them up on ebay, put them for whatever YOU think is reasonable and then lower the price as required depending on what others are selling them for.
Right now you could get lucky and get rrp or just a bit more but a smarter person can get them 10-20 bucks cheaper with enough searching.
...I honestly think the idea for an appraisal general would be a nice break from the usual stuff that dominates here but I doubt many of us would have enough of a clue to get it off the ground.
Best of luck op
All asshattery aside;
You'd probably get $20~$30 for the Predator on the left
$30+ for the Predator on the right
And the real star is the Hybrid Alien in the middle, which you'd probably get $70~$100 for.
I'd probably sell them while you can, because NECA is planning on remaking these things in a year or two and considering the fact that their modern articulation, sculpt, and detail will blow these figures out of the water, no one will even remember these particular figures exist once they get remade.
here's the thing, there's sort of a gap in value between "old" toys(60s-90's),new toys(2010 onward or so) and stuff like this (2000's). Old stuff has its appeal because they have their own stylings/appearance from new stuff. New stuff has value depending on rarity. But stuff from just a few years ago, which has newer, better versions out, sink in value like rocks. They're so close to modern stuff, yet lacking details and articulation, that they don't have much appeal.
>Well its a shame Neca won't be making any more movie preds
What? The AVP:R figures will be redone a couple of years down the line, that includes Wolf, and Randy has stated on Twitter that they may revisit Jungle Hunter for an 'ultimate' version of the figure one day.
Don't talk bollocks m8.
Anon no matter how polite your intentions might be, you're still the guy asking how much you can get for it, which tells us you really aren't interested in collecting, you are just a proto-scalper, and /toy/ will never openly abide a scalper.
Neca have already released the first wave of AvP figures in their Predators line, the Grid Alien is planned for a future release, it's only a matter of time before the Predalien is made, I'd estimate 2017.
