But you know who REALLY needs an MA? Berserker Predator. His aftermarket prices range from $40-175. I've only seen 13 for sale. But please, give us removable masks and articulated mandibles and fingers. For other Preds, stuff like the Combi-Stick and Razor Whip should be extendable.
I'm not big on the 2010 Predators. At least not the 3 main ones. I wasn't fond of the dreads being swept back on the Berserker Predator. Their armor was OK, but the lack of the fishnet wire was a little jarring.

For the next MA Predator, I hope we get Jungle and City Hunter.
We have any after-market prices on SHMA's ALIEN Warrior yet? That was the first one out. Or is it still available at SRP?

How much was it on sale? Now that it's out of stock it's just showing a $90 price. Would've really liked to have picked that up on sale.

So, the FIRST of SHMA's ALIEN/Predator figs are still at SRP on Amazon, but kaiju releases that came out around the same time( Battra, Mothra )are Red-Zoned & secondary market prices are setting in...

I understand all the aftermarket hullabaloo with the NECAs - it's been going on for years. But how does this bode well for SHMA's ALIEN/Predator, when all of them - incl. the first - are still readily available at SRP, or LESS?

My stuff I hope to make cheaper than CoBs. Though I don't know if he's currently taking orders, says on his site he relocated. I honestly wanted to get his beams for Battra because I doubt I'll be able to make anything that awesome.
I will explain slowly why you are wrong.

I might be interested in those. Kiryu, Dessy, Gigan, and G'14 could all use breath effects.

They're pretty cool, and unfortunately useful as Tamashii isn't including effect parts with SHMA's much anymore, to help keep prices down.

I might be interested in some. I had thought of making an ice beam for Super X III that plugs into the spot for the front landing gear. Make it thin and not real long so you don't have to add much extra support.

:facepalm: Battra and Mothra are both way more popular than AvP.

BARAGONZILLA: Well they might just need money to keep the company going.
Ahh I'm sorry but how is this even concurrent to keeping a business running? I'm educated and experienced enough to know what a rip off is. That money doesn't go to them, theoretically. Though this looks like they might be double dipping. Also paying just as much money for the item that is being shipped; by the way I have seen the box, as small as a figuarts box; for the cost of the size of King ghidorahs or biollantes box seem fair? I can get this shipped from EMS 3-5 day shipping for a total of $12 from Japan. I have bought a giant box of crap from BBTS, a notorious seller for inflated prices and NEVER been charged $50 for a tiny little box :l.... NO excuse.

If you are in Japan, you can get him next month. If in NA, February. If in neither, best of luck to ya...

Yes, the baddies... I hope we get a Gyaos first. Not in a big hurry to see what they do with Legion, as that's gonna be a BIG sucker.

No, but you could take off the top half of the head and replace it with bezerker eyes if you have the original Kiryu. It probably won't match the metallic color scheme, though.

What he means is that Kiryu does not come with a stand in his box, but you can purchase separate stands that will work from pretty much anywhere.
