D-328 Dinoking giftset auction has ended - someone is going to have a USD$2,500 hole in the wallet

Been looking at this for days with interest. This afternoon, at around 2pm Sydney time, the Dinoking giftset auction ended.

22 bids and a week after its listed, the D-328 Dinoking giftset MISB has ended at the very sweet price (for the seller) of US$2,481.65! Whoa!

Again, here's the auction link with actual auction title (but despite what it says, this is not an AFA graded piece): Transformers G1 Victory Dinoking Giftset MISB D-328 AFA.

Now, as if this was not enough, another seller has today listed 6 individual boxed Dinoforce robots MIB for auction as a set. The starting price? US$1,125. Inspired by the above auction? Probably.

Will watch how this one pans out in a week's time.


  1. So I been looking to buy this giftset into my gestalt collection, I just started collecting combiners recently, and also saw this rare set on ebay... but man what the fuck... $2500?? I actually spent $300USD on a reissue metal predaking and thought that was expensive.... but i guess these collectors have unlimited funds...

  2. hi Frank, one of the reasons that Dinoking giftset went for $2500 might be because its MISB. A MIB piece should go for less.

    $300USD for the reissue Predaking Giftset is pretty good going. It usually goes for a little more than that. You'll soon find out that Dinoking is among one of the most expensive combiners out there, not to mention one of the rarest and most difficult to find complete. Even Monstructor, whom Dinoking is repainted from is insanely expensive. A recent auction for Monstructor ended at US$475 thereabouts.

    There is a Dinoking set on eBay now at a decent price, to me. It's a buy-it-now of $1500USD which is pretty modest.

    Here's the link: http://cgi.ebay.com/Transformers-Takara-Vintage-D322-D327-Dinoking-MISB-MIB-/400128220940?cmd=ViewItem&pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item5d29801f0c

    Here's another giftset, in shit condition, asking for US$2300 (last week it was asking US$3000, seller must have dropped the price): http://cgi.ebay.com/Transformers-G1-Victory-Dinoking-Giftset-MISB-D-328-AFA-/110543421335?cmd=ViewItem&pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item19bce6bf97
