Acquiring Quadrex and Man-Bat...


How would I go about finding if there are one of each of these guys available? How many are known to exist? Who might want to sell?

I really don't care about any other loose figures or protos other than these guys for my collection. I mean, I'll get other stuff probably because these may be out of [sign in to see URL] these are the two I really want.

Mike? James? Anyone?

Peace,

Chip

Re: Acquiring Quadrex and Man-Bat...


Hi Chip,

As far as Quadrex goes, I'm aware of 8 hardcopy examples in varying degrees of completeness ranging from complete down to just the 3 torso pieces. The number could also be interpreted as 9 because the least complete example containing the 3 torso pieces is split between two collectors.

My numbers on existing Manbats aren't quite as concrete as those on Quadrex, but more than likely at least 5 complete hardcopy examples (one of which is cast in blue urethane) along with a few very incomplete examples exist. There's also the single first shot head and head mold, which I'm sure you've seen featured on the site.

Now, what do you think the chances of me actually acquiring one of each are? What's about the amount of money they command?

Peace,

Chip

Hard to say what the likelihood of acquiring one of the two is honestly. It's been at least 5 years (if memory serves me well) since I last saw a dynacast Manbat change hands and I think he's the more desireable of the two. There are reproductions out there, of course, so that might be an option to tide you over in the meantime. I'm still surprised that repro Manbat fetched $500 months back. I'd suspect it'll most likely set you back somewhere in the $2K range for a dynacast Manbat hardcopy.

As for Quadrex, I'd estimate a complete example on the open market should be in the $2K range as well, but the price should be less for non-complete examples.

I'm just trying to give you a general [sign in to see URL] may very well find something cheaper or may be faced with higher asking prices should you come across one(s) for sale.

Okay, thanks for the info. Derek was the one who bought the repro Man-Bat, and to tell you the truth that looked so good that I wouldn't mind having a repro of all the known 4th series protos just to have them represented.

What were the protos that actually saw physical form? Man-Bat, Quadrex, Silicon, Ed Dorado, and Shockwave? Power Plus Firestorm?

Did I get them all?

Peace,

Chip

So I'm guessing you have all of those? :-)
