    Yep, bumping this Creature thread just for the hell of it. I really like this character and statue. I'm hoping because he wasn't too popular I'll snag one on ebay for a good deal. There have only been a couple for sale/auction so far, and not at good prices.

    I swear I saw one of these sell for $1400-1500 a year or two ago.

    why do you think less than a 100? It's too bad they never did a small round of a black/white creature. I'd be interested in that.

    Its says 100 on the box plus I heard due to the small amount of popularity they made one batch.

    There was a quick ebay auction recently with no bids that would've been around $1300, but it was in Italy and had some damaged claws that were glued back on. I stick to buying within the US anymore, multiple reasons for this. I'm sure I'll own it someday.

    If only CM's shopping cart would only let you order as many as are in stock. I just put 600 Creature's in the cart with no problem lol. I'd like to know how many CM has left.

    Unfortunately it doesn't work that way most of the time. As you said, there were only very few initial buyers and those that did get it were probably hardcore fans or wanted the Creature as a long-time addition to their collection, hence supply is extremely low on the secondary market. Also the gargantuan size doesn't help to shift this easily, especially when you're in Europe. Godfather turned out to be similar back in the days.

    True Steve, but typically if you can still purchase directly from a retailer, the "used" price has to be lower than retail. Unless someone just blindly comes across it and buys it on ebay without knowing better.
